I'm sure we will be related somehow. There were lots of Morans in Glantavrane near Kilkelly and my GG Grandmother Mary Shannon (b1843) was married in Kilmovee Church to Daniel Moran (b1843). Their daughter was a Catherine (b1872),
What is your mother's name and where did she live in Bacup? If you know the address I could find out more info.
Did she have any brothers or sisters?
And where are you?
Thanks for getting in touch.
