I am trying to find Mary Macken Lowder who placed the following on your site back in 1998. Her email address is obviously no longer 'active' but perhaps she will revisit this site. I would like to discuss what she knows about her Mackin/Macken relatives and compare with what I know about mine.
The notice is as follows:-
May 9 1998
Mary Mackin Lowder * Seeking: Macken
* Details: Grandfather Thomas Macken was born in Castlebar I think in 1884. He had a brother Patrick, another brother John and another brother Michael. Michael became a priest (Roman Catholic). John and Thomas came to the USA and Thomas settled in Groveland, New York. John went out west and was heard from only once from Omaha Nebraska but never again after that. Thomas had we think two sisters. One I believe married and the other became a Sister of Mercy I think. I believe she taught at Trinity College in Ireland. I don't know if Patrick ever married. We would like to trace other relatives of Thomas' family. When Thomas got to Ellis Island his name was listed as Mackin but Father Michael Macken always spelled it Macken. I believe Patrick Macken was the oldest child.
Thanks for your help.
Thanks you anyone who may be able to help.
