|Bio and Links|
My home town is Westport, Co Mayo, Ireland.|
I joined FAG while researching my Ancestors who emigrated to Chicago.
I have realised my dream - travelled to Chicago and visited 3 of the graveyards where my Ancestors are buried.
Most of my Memorials/Cemeteries are in Ireland. If you find a relative and wish to add/change information,please feel free to contact me.
Most of my Memorials have Graveshots. I flower all my Memorials and link them with relative's. Ones that may not have Graveshots are my own relatives where I have not located their resting spot, although I know the Cemetery.
I am happy to transfer Memorials to Family Members, however my photographs are copyright and I would like to be notified should anyone require a copy of same.
Thank You to Jim and Tammy who have helped me find the resting place of my Lavelle Family in NY.
In the early part of 2012 I set up the Mayo Genealogy Group in Castlebar, we have monthly meetings in the National Museum of Country Life, Turlough.
We have set up a Facebook Page, if you would like to join and post queries about your Mayo Ancestors check out our page.

|Elaine Clarke||Margaret Heneghan & Annie ' Heneghan' Horan|
Many thanks for providing this information. I love researching my ancestors, but I'm a little confused and wonder if you can assist. Can you please advise of all the writing on the above headstone as I believe both are my grandfathers sisters.
I believe Edward Heneghan who returned from New York USA erected a headstone for his mother....I believe this was detailed on the headstone.... have you come across it....???
The Heneghan family I am looking for are from Partry, Michael and Bridget (nee Mulchrone) had 12 children. I know a few of them went to America in the early 1900's. My Grand Father Mark came to the uk around 1915-20 and married my grandmother, unfortunately I never met either grandparents, so only got information from my mothers.
Many thanks in advance.

Im hoping to go to Ireland in about 5 years. Its on my bucket list. My ancestors came from Westport /Gothbran area so I'd like to visit there. My grandpa had a special devotion to Mary and visited many of her shrines. I still have a rosary that he bought from Knock. I will be making a stop at Knock if I get to Ireland.

I wonder if it changed those people' lives after seeing the vision. Do people pilgrimage to the graves of the witnesses ?

I am actually familiar with Our Lady of Knock. That's cool that they buried there.

I'm curious about the Witness gravesite sign in the cemetery with James Kirby. What is the story behind that ?

Greetings from Springfield, IL,
How wonderful you were able to visit Chicago & points beyond. Since you left a flower on a Brady memorial in Cass county MO, I'm wondering if your Bradys are the ones that married my Stephens. The Stephens left Boone & Kenton county KY about 1822, stopped for 20 years in central Missouri, which is where I think they first came to know the Brady's. They moved enmasse to Cass county MO which is on the MO-KS border.
|Dee Townsend||RE: Re Needham & Fadden, Westport|
Thank you Dympna.....so much....am now a member...and posted
|Dee Townsend||Westport, Co. Mayo|
So glad I found you...my great grandparents were from Westport; James McFadden b. 1821, and Mary E. Needham, b. 1829. Years back I wrote to Co., Mayo Genealogy office and sent $25..they researched and found Jim and Mary's wedding bands and the baptism of their daughter Bridget. They advise that it would be foolish to spend more money as they came from peasant stock and any records might be questionable. I do know Mary's little brother came over - Austin Needham, b. 1842, d. at the Civil War Battle of Atlanta, Georgia in 1864...and his father Michael Needham, who remained in Westport received a U.S. pension for Austin's service in the war. I'm really just writing this because it is real neat to find someone from "their home town"....thanks for listening.....
|Scott||RE: Re Rev Michael Waldron|
You're welcome! Was Father Waldron born in County Mayo? If so, I will add that to his memorial.
