Larry Sievers's picture

Hello Folks .................Shirley my wife and I Larry Sievers would like to take a vacation to Ireland and walk on the same sidewalks and drive on the same streets and do all sorts of things like Shirley's great grandfather & great grandmother did around County Galway & possibly Craughwell near Athenry as children before they came to America around 1854 to 1860's and probably married in Ireland in this time frame befor sailing across the big pond from their Ireland home..

Lawrence was born in 1836 while his wive Catherine was born April, 1837. They lived in Chicago Illinois for 1-2 years before making St. Louis, Missouri their permanent residence and raising a wonderful family. Grateful, Larry Sievers.

The Boston Pilot; From October 1831 through October 1921, the Boston Pilot newspaper printed a
“Missing Friends” column with advertisements from people looking for “lost” friends and relatives
who had emigrated from Ireland to the United States. This extraordinary collection of 40,743 records
is available here as a searchable online database, which contains a text record for each ad that
appeared in the Pilot. http://infowanted.bc.edu/
