Surnames: Carr and Grehan
Thomas Grehan was born abt 1831 and brother John Grehan was born in 1816. John Grehan is buried with wife Bridgret in the old cemetary in Glenamaddy across from St Patricks. I visited the site in October 2011. I have also been in contact with Marie Grehan a widow of Thomas Grehan ( grandson of John Grehan) My great grandfather Thomas and Honor Carr had children Edmund, Michael, John and Mary. Edmund was born in 1870 and emigrated to US and Philadelphia. His name was changed to Edward Graham. Edward brought over his cousins from Kiltullaugh Michael, Patrick and Mary to Philadelphia and got them jobs.

I am still searching for the graves of Thomas Grehan and Honor. I am looking for the Carr family too.Many of the Grehans did leave Ireland for England and became Grahams too.

Hello mgraham,
If as you say some of The Grehan family came to England they possibly could have Landed in Liverpool
