John is my great-great grandfather. 

They had four sons, Patrick, Thomas, John & James. 

Three immigrated to the States, ending up n Connecticut & NY. Patrick, Thomas & John. 

According to Patrick's Obiturary from Waterbury, CT ~1935, James stayed at home, in Ireland. (He may have moved to Moate, Westmeath later in life).

Patrick is my great grandfather. 

Patrick Galvin married in Waterbury, Ct 21 Aug 1901 to a very local girl, Kate McEvoy (from Laurencetown / Clonfert/ Galway).  ** i have a public ancestry tree**. the lived in Waterbury, had 8 kids. he worked in the Mills as a Blacksmith. 

i am still trying to figure out about the relation to my "Uncle Tommy" Galvin. i have realized that he is actually likely a distant cousin. he immigrated 30 years after most of my line, in the 1929 but is a cousin somewhere. i didn't start diving into the family history until i was older. but his daughter is actually the one that shed light on the town "Shannonbridge" and that we have people buried at Clonmacnois. i've been researching ever since.
