I am the 3rd Great Grandson to Patrick Fagan and was looking for more information as to where in Ireland my family is from.  The only information I have is he married an Eliza and they had a son named Frederick Fagan in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.  This would mean so much to my mother, brother, and I if anyone could help further our search for our family tree book we are trying to put together.


Searching for Mary Ryan

IrishSide09's picture

I'm researching my gg grandmother Mary Ryan born in Templemore Tipperary c1832, emmigrated to Australia not sure how or when. Her death certificate suggests she was 56 years in the Colony when she died in 1910 which puts her arrival here about 1854.  so far I have not been able to find her immigration details.  I beleive her father was John Ryan a Cooper by trade married to Mary Effs  or Elff (it's not clear on daughters death certificate) I presume they were boyh from this parish also.

Looking for information

Mary Monks's picture

A Bridget Toland from Ard, Cloontagh, Clonmany is showing up in a number of unconnected family trees, and I am trying to find out whether she is my great great grandmother. The Bridget Toland I am seeking moved to Scotland and married Patrick Donachy (Donaghey). Their eldest son, also Patrick, was born in 1864 and a daughter, another Bridget, was born about 1873.
