My great-grandfather was John, who married Ellen Dignan, and came to the US in 1890. His father was John who married Margaret Doherty. What I believe we learned at the 2000 reunion in Delaware was that John and Margaret (Maggie) lived in an adjoining farmhouse with his brother Michael and Bridget (Welsh). As I recall, that's you're family line, right?
So, yes, I felt like I struck gold. For you and me. BTW, I met the researcher at the Sligo foundation who did the work for us. She came down and said hello when I was there (Theresa, I think it was). The 1848 Valuation map shows that the farm that John and Michael lived in was listed under Patrick Hargadon in 1848, and that matches what Theresa had told us, so I think we can assume that this was John and Michael's father.
