I see reference to a Michael Foley in a newspaper article dated 1836 living in Newtown Anderson. Does anyone have any information on Foleys living in this area?

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out and many thanks for your query to the message board. 

    Do you have any other information that you can share such as a date of birth, parents' names?

  • Dear Jane:


    Michael Foley and his wife Mary lived in Co. Sligo from 1805 to 1850. Michael was a stone mason. His son John aka Michael emigrated to Wolverhampton, Eng. in the 1850s. I am not sure if his parents also went. John later emigrated to Ohio.

    I see a newspaper article about a Michael Foley living in Newtown Anderson and would like to learn more about him on a hunch. For many years I have searched all records that I can but haven't found anything definite.

    Thanks for the reply.
