McHale/Jones from Cuingbeg, near Foxford Co. Mayo
Seeking any descendants of Martin Jones who was baptised on 03 11 1838 at Cuingbeg (near Foxford) Co Mayo. Martin's parents were Charles Jones and Mary McHale 1802-1866, who later settled in the Tadcaster area in Yorkshire. Mary had a sister named Honora 1813-n/a who married Michael Carrebine, also settling in Tadcaster, Yorkshire.
Gill's of co mayo
Looking for info on the Gill family: Austin Gill b. 1816/20 Wife was Elizabeth b. 1820. One of their sons was Joseph b. 1854. I think they must have left Ireland between 1850 and 1854 and settled in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. Joseph later came down to Plymouth, Devon. Irish records seem sparse and I am looking for a birth for Austin and his marriage to Elizabeth ? It would be nice to find a record of their departure from Ireland and arrival in England. So if there any Gill's in the Staffordshire area out there, with this family in their tree, I'd love to hear from you!

red mail Corrigan Family
My ancestor John J. Corrigan (b. 1868) came to the US from either Mayo or Belfast. That is debated. He settled in the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania.

What is known is that he had a brother Hugh Corrigan (b. 1874) that was in the US by 1900 along with their mother Anne. Both Hugh and Anne arrived in 1891. Possible other siblings may have been Felix, Bridget, and Nellie. Any information about this family would be appreciated.

red mail MOYLES/James and Mary m/s DEVINE
Hi all I'm totally new to this "posting a message" so please forgive me if I get it wrong!! I would appreciate any help in tracing any relatives of either my grandfather JAMES MOYLES born County Mayo around 1853 and my grandmother MARY MOYLES m/s DEVINE also born County Mayo around 1857. I have managed to track down my grandmother's death certificate and from that it shows her parents as PATRICK DEVINE, Farmer and ELLEN DEVINE m/s BROWN. James and Mary were married in County Mayo and as yet I have been unable to track down their Marriage Certificate and would appreciate help in pointing me in the right direction as to where I may obtain a copy. I'm housebound and based in Scotland and unfortunately the Irish Registry Office unlike Scotland does not appear to have search facilities online. James and Mary had 7 children, five of whom I believe were also born in County Mayo, MARIA (b.1882), MICHAEL (b.1883), PATRICK (b.1887), JAMES (b.1982) and FRANK (b.1893). Their other two children THOMAS (b.1897)(my father) and MARGARET ELLEN (b.1900) were registered as born in Dewsbury, England and from the 1901 Census they were all registered as living at 161 South Street, Ossett, Yorkshire along with 3 boarders who also came from COUNTY MAYO, namely, THOMAS MURTY (b.1853), JAMES MURTY (b.1884) and PATRICK TOMLIN (b. 1877). The working members of the family were employed on the railway construction and I understand my grandfather James was killed on a train heading to Scotland. I have checked all the registers here in Scotland and can find no trace of his death recorded here therefore I can only assume it is registered somewhere in England and I am at present trying to track this down. Early 1900s saw the family move to Scotland and work in the pits. Most of the family moved to Lumphinnans in Fife and settled there. My grandmother Mary Moyles died in 1924 and sad to say all of their children have also passed on. There are however still a number of the MOYLES family, myself included living in and around Fife. From the above can anyone remember either JAMES or MARY MOYLES m/s DEVINE? Did James or Mary have any siblings? Any history of where in County Mayo they were raised, their parentage, their mates would be greatly appreciated. My health decrees that my time is limited in this search and the information I am seeking is something I have on my "wish list" so folks it's over to you now - can anyone help me fulfill my wish??? Christine
