From my father's notes from 20 years ago. Mother or grandmother b 1850-60's was an O Neill relative of ours from Bantry, Cork.
Michael was a teacher and lived in Castlebar. Placed called 'crimmen'? according to old family notes (but can't find). Usually a Cork clan name of McCarthy. Daughter worked in local hospital.

Mary is my grandmother, others listed are known siblings names - I don't have much more information than that. Mary was born Feb 1917 and moved to USA in late 1930s and married Edward Gray. They settled in New Jersey. Looking to find out more about her life in Ireland. Any and all information would be greatly treasured!
