Hi Alan,
Thanks for replying to my posting. Your grandmother and my Grandfather (Charles) were brother and sister. Our Aunt Mercedes (she was a nun) was sent to Texas in the 1950's to work in St. Joseph's Hospital in Houston Texas. Uncle Steve followed a few years later but died in Houston in the 1960's. I visited Aunt Mercedes at the retirement villas in the 1970's. She was quite a character. She died awhile ago and is buried in Ennes. Thanks for the offer to take pictures of the family plot, but I have pictures from when I was there with my son. He also cleaned the plot up a little when we were there.

My father was the only child of Charles. I have 11 brothers and 2 sisters. All living in the Philadelphia area. How about you?

Our last connection with the family in Ireland was Mary (Garvey) O'Toole whose father was James. she had a store on Dominic Street in Galway, but sad to say she passed a few years ago. She was a very nice woman. Since then I have lost touch with any body else in Ireland.

Alan,if you could I would appreciate it if you could take a picture of the family house on castle street. I haven't been back to visit in about 5 years due to back surgery.

It was great to hear from you. I would like to keep in touch. It would be great if you knew anything about our family, i.e. who is living, where they are etc.
