My great grandfather, Hugh Joseph ROGERS, son of Matthew & Ellen (Carlon/Carolan) ROGERS emigrated to New Zealand in 1875. He was 23, & a bootmaker from Co Cavan according to the shipping record, so I estimated his birthdate as c1852. Matthew was a farmer according to Hugh's marriage certificate. One of Hugh's sons was named James & I wonder if we have a connection? I have no other details & live in New Zealand.
