Subject: Margaret Kelly Gavin

My grgrgrandmother was Margaret Kelly and she married Michael Gavin.  I don't know what happened to Michael but   Margaret came to San Francisco with many of her children and they all settled there.  They arrived via RoscommonBostonSan Francisco.  Her children were Michael, (who stayed in Boston), John (who went to New Hampshire), Patrick (my great grandfather), Margaret, Mary, James, Bridget and Thomas. Patrick married Ellen Griffin who was from Rahara right near to Knockcrogery from which the Gavin clan came.  All of these last sibs are buried in Holy Cross in Colma, Ca.  Does anyone know of a Kelly family with a daughter Margaret who married a Gavin  in Roscommon and immigrated to America?  We have been looking for many years and can't come up with even a clue.  Margaret was in Boston by mid 1850s.  We think she was born around 1800.  They came to California in 1859/60.  It is possible that there was a son Peter Gavin who might have stayed in Ireland. That name keeps popping up in the Knockcroghery area at the same time that my family was there. Thanks.  Dorothy O'Connor

I have a family story. My great-great grandfather Peter Kelly was living in Ireland and studying to become a priest, when one night on a trip to a tavern he lost his short Irish temper and in a brawl accidently killed. I wondered where there may be information on this, and to find out it's accuracy. He found himself eventually in NewBrunswick Canada and married Jane McClane (No date given), he had my great-great grandfather in NewBrunswick on March 30, 1850, who died in Germania Township, MN on March 9, 1917 Thank you Lisa

I am looking for information on my maternal grandmother her name was Margaret Kelly. She passed away in January of l928 when my mother was l8 years old , my mother's father had passed away when my mother was two years old and prior to them moving to Canada in January l9l2; My grandmother's was born in Guernsey, her first husband's name was Thomas Moylan they had one son Ben who was born in approximately l898 and they had a daughter Margaret who died on December l4th, l895 at age 5 months. I am in possession of two family albums which my grandmother brought toCanada with her in it are photos of her Mother , grandmother brothers, sisters etc. I am afraid that my mother told me quite a few of their names when I was around 8 or l0 years old and I remember very few . I happen to resemble my grandmother , and my daughter is more her aunt. If you know of anyone who is looking for photos of this family please let me know or if they would like to communicate. But also if you have any information on my grandmother like date of birth , her parents name and dates of birth plus her sibling names I woud love to know. I have tried for around 5 years to find my mother nephew in the United States and have had no luck. My mothers full brother moved to the states in l952 and the only contact that we had with him was in approximately l974 when I needed information for my mother's birth certificate. I will pass the pictures on to my children but I treasure things like them and I thought that someone out there may also be searching. My mother's half brother Ben Moylan passed away in Toronto, Ontario Canada in approximately l965. My father was not the type to encourage any contact with my mother's family. He passed away when I was a teenager. Well I hope that I haven't bored you to much. Take care and thank you for taking the time to read this e mail Yours truly Linda

My gggrandfather, Jonathan KELLY emigrated to Canada from Tyrone abt 1818, settling in Quebec. There seems to be no trace of where in Tyrone he came from. Names of his seven sons, in birth order, are James, Robert, Jonathan, Thomas, George, Samuel, Joseph. He married in Canada Sarah Jane BATES who was also from Tyrone. -Colin ==== CoTyroneIreland Mailing List ====
