Place of migration
Migrated to/Born in USA

Catherine Murphy, my great grandmother, was born in DooyeaghnyorCloonloughan Co. Sligo, today is in Co. Mayo. She settled in Youngstown, Ohio, USA. She married Patrick Rochford, who family was from Kilmoremoy  Parish in Co. Mayo, in Youngstown. I know my grandfather, Edward, born in 1896 traveled as a young boy (5 years old) back to Ireland.  He traveled with a "family friend", not his parents.  Surely this family friend was a relative? I'm assuming he went to Ireland to visit his grandparents who were still in Ireland? Don't really know.
