Searching for information on and descendants of Martin and Mary FOYLE, Irish immigrants who settled in Heckscherville, Cass Township, around 1848 - 1850. They were members of Saint Kieran's Roman Catholic Church in Heckscherville.
The FOYLE's had six children: Bridget, Julia and William born in Ireland, and Thomas, Ellen and Mary born in Pennsylvania. Bridget, Julia and Mary's married names are not known. Thomas died in childhood (I think), Ellen FOYLE's married name is Ellen CLARK, and she had two children: Eugene and Mary, and William, my great-great-grandfather, married Ellen BRENNAN (daughter of Patrick and Margaret DAILEY BRENNAN) and raised their family in Heckscherville.
William and Ellen FOYLE had 7 children that survived to adulthood: Martin (married Teresa O'NEILL), Mary (married John SWEENEY), Margaret (married James BAMBRICK), Julia (married Bernard QUINN), Patrick, Thomas, and Rose (married Patrick BRENNAN).
Martin FOYLE, my great-grandfather, was Assistant Superintendent of Schuylkill County schools, at the time of his death in a car accident on March 5, 1929. He was a member of Division 12 Ancient Order of Hibernians (A.O.H.)formerly of Heckscherville.
My ultimate goal is to figure out from which county/town in Ireland the FOYLE family emmigrated.
I would like to hear from anyone with connections to the Heckscherville FOYLE's. I am also interested in obtaining information on the Division 12 of the A.O.H.. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
