Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

RE: Re: Pilgrims's Graves
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.

RE: Re:Witnesses Graves in Knock
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 ?

Bradys in Cass County MO
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.

Westport, Co. Mayo
So glad I found 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.....

RE: Re Rev Michael Waldron
You're welcome! Was Father Waldron born in County Mayo? If so, I will add that to his memorial.

RE: Re John Daley
Yes, the grave is an Irish one. John came from county Kerry Ireland. He married Ann Shanahan from county Kerry (Tullamore). I have added his son Joseph's grave and Joseph's wife Ann. Thank you bunches for the flowers on Johns grave as I said before. If you could attach the picture of Joseph & Anne stone to Joseph Daley & Ann Lipke Daley it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
