My Maternal Grandmother was a member of this family. She was born Bridget Hunt in 1901 in Cloonfree, I believe she was the daughter of Michael (b.1836), although I am unsure and know very little about this branch of my family tree. She was a dressmaker/seamstress. She changed her name to Agnes at some point and moved to America in the early 1900's. She had siblings, I believe they were named Jack, Martin, Mickey, Annie, Kathleen and possibly another called Sissy. Some came to America, others stayed behind.

Did you see the additional info about Cloonfree HERE? It included links to all the free resources and records for this townland, including the 1911 Census record where your grandmother's name appears: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Roscommon/Annaghmore/C…
We'd love if you added your Birgid Hunt to our Cloonfinlough Ancestors roll-call HERE.
(to reconnect her with the townland, simply type in "Cloonfree TOWNLAND" in the "Add Building section" of the Ancestor Chronicle).
