Subject: Mayo Ancestor - ROONEY
Date: Tue, 8 Mar 2005 16:46:24 EST
Just reposting again my brickwall ancestor Elizabeth ROONEY (AKA Bessie)
from townland of Knockfin County Mayo Ireland. Emigrated about late 1880s/early
1890s to Chicago area. Family maintained links with her and her family
until the 1940s. The families of related emigrants/siblings were in Cleveland,
OH and Butte, MT. Do not know her married name or if she married in Mayo or
Other connected surnames are FADDEN/FAGIN/MCFADDEN, GIBLIN, KARRIGAN from
neighboring townlands, just outside of Westport. The townlands would be
Streamstown, Belclare, Clerhaun, possibly Rosebeg.
Many descendants of her family remain in the same area of Mayo, greater
Cleveland, OH area and Dillon, MT areas today.
