Hi Joe,
I took a look at Griffiths Valuation for Fortunes in Co Wexford.
There's 162 spread over multiple parishes. Have you already tried to
trace anything through Griffiths? Do you know Michael's father's
name? Do you have an obit for Michael?

Nan

P.S. Chicago Trib has an obit for a Margaret Mcgrath, nee FORTUNE.
Oct 17, 1902. Res 252 N Morgan; St Stephens' Church; Interment
Calvary. If that is of interest to you and you don't have it let me
know.
