Thanks Maureen for your input. I do belong to the Limerick County list. I've gone there with the Fleming name and with the Butler name but have never found anyone even remotely related to me. My ggrandfather said he came to the USA in 1850 that would have made him only 5 years old. His father was James Fleming but cannot determine which county he is from. I did learn he was married to a Daly (first name unknown). I go to the Limerick list because of ggrandmother Mary Butler Fleming. Her family is supposed to have a RC Bishop in their line. I found a George Butler who was Bishop of County Limerick. I have been trying to tie my family to that line but haven't been able to. Some very nice people on the Limerick list told me my job was to tie all my ends together in the states first and then pursue County Limerick, but I haven't been able to do that either. I know nothing of Mary Butler..when she came to America, was she born in Limerick, when did she and my grandfather marry....with a name like John Fleming it is very difficult to determine anything for sure. I'm starting to believe my Irish family were just dropped here on our shore . But I'll never give up, that's the Irish in me!> From: > Date: Wed, 12 Mar 2008 20:57:28 -0400> To: > Subject: Re: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Catholic Churches-Deaths/Buriels> > > In a message dated 3/12/2008 7:01:35 PM Central Daylight Time, > writes:> > She was born in Maulleen, County Limerick.
