Good day Castlebar Irish! I am seeking the families of my fourth great grandmother Mary Howe, Little, Fleming. She was born c. 1800, married John Little in Turlough Jan 7, 1824, married Richard Fleming between 1835 and 1837. She emigrated to Canada with all 8 children, from Killala on a coffin ship in 1846. I am unable to find anything on her family or her husbands. All of her children were born in 'Crossboyne'. The only other clue I have to share was that her marriage to John Little was witnessed by Samuel Grimes and John Hopkins. I would greatly appreciate any information. Thank you - a Canadian Cousin.

I posted on here many years before and was able to contact a second cousin I think Thomas Gibbons? However, now I cannot find your email address (will keep looking) but I am interested to see the photos you said you had of my Dad and his mum my grandma Mrs Langan. I don't know if you can scan them onto the computer? I wondered if there might be any photos of my Dad when he was at school? I don't know his birthday either so wondered if you might know it?
Perhaps someone else might remember my Dad Michael Gibbons Ballivary our family lived in the station house, I was born in it in 1968. Thank you for any information
