I'm interested in the following Oranmore families;
Athy, Banks, Berry, Brannelly, Burke, Burns, Cormican, Coye, Dolan, Donahue, Fahey, Finn, Grealy, Greally, Grealish, Higgins, Hynes, Keane,Kelly, McDonogh, McGrath, Moran, Muldoon, Nolan, Plower, Small, Sweeney, Tarpey, Trayers, Vaughan.
I am tracing the John Grealish and Bridget Keane from Galway Ireland. Their daughters Bridget and Mary came to America in about 1880. Both married in Minnesota and then went to Tacoma, Washington. Other children born to John &Bridget Grealish are:Anne, Catherine, John, Patrick, Judith, Penelope, and another Anne. If this family is connected to your research please contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
You didn't mention my family's surname in your request,
but I thought as..............Oranmore was such a small place,
even up to the 1940s, that everybody must have known everybody?
My Grandma was Rosann Brennan,
I can find her Uncle Patrick & his wife, Aunt Kate, in the archives,
I think she was born in America, and was related to the Burkes
She married Michael Lenihan, he was from Clare Galway,
The Lenihans, I believe, are still in Oranmore?
Anybody recognise anything?
