red mail An Orphan in Westport
Mary Dean born 14 Nov 1860 Ballycroy, County Mayo, Ireland, remembered as a child of 3 or 4 walking with her mother who carried an infant child to Westport. They stayed the night at the home of the local cobbler. The next morning her mother and the infant were gone, we understand to take passage to America to follow the father of one or both of the children. Mary was raised and schooled in the local Catholic orphanage and at 12 she began working for the local postmistress until she went to Scotland in her late teens. When she married she wrote to Martin Conway, town register, for her birth certificate. He could only write back that her father was John Dean, tavern keeper, and her mother was Mary Murphy. John went to America and Mary followed a few months later. Names may be flopped and be John Murphy and Mary Dean. Would love to confirm her parents and finish the details of her life. It is a difficult puzzle to solve. Mary was my great-grandmother.
