Am looking for relatives of the Murrays. My grandfather was John Daniel MURRAY born in 1893 in Chicago, the youngest of six children. His father was John J. Murray born about 1860 in Ireland (possibly Athlone). Believe his family came to America in 1870. I believe his father could be Thomas or James MURRAY. John J. married Elizabeth TALBOT. Looking for help in locating more great-grandparents. I believe Thomas (James) Murray married Margaret EVERS - her possible parents Patrick Evers and Cath HAMMON of Longford. I believe Elizabeth's parents to be JAMES TALBOT and MARGARET EGAN, possibly from Cork.

I was looking for information on Thomas DONLON b~1828 in Co. Westmeath. Thomas came to Australia in 1846 but I cannot find any records relating to him before arriving in Australia.

Thomas' parents were Thomas DONLON and Catherine EGAN, who I can only assume also lived in Westmeath for all/some of their lives. Thanks in advance Darren

red mail Gartland, Monaghan
Trying to find information about my great great grandfather, Eugene (Owen) Gartland, believed to have been born in County Monaghan around 1826. His father was Michael Gartland, a blacksmith, who had died by the time Owen married in 1853. Although Owen was Catholic, he was married in Sunderland Parish Church, Co. Durham to Mary Ann Clark whose father, William, was also a blacksmith. Owen worked as a blacksmith for his father in law before he and Mary were married. Although it is difficult to read the enumerator's writing, the 1861 census records Owen's place of birth as what looks like Munehan (which I took to be Monaghan) recently confirmed by an Irish genealogist at the Who Do You Think You Are exhibition at Olympia! Any information welcome.
