My Grandfather, Thomas Scally was born on 10/20/ 1893 in Carrowbehy, which is in the county of Roscommon, in the Barony of FrenchPark, the Parish of Tibohine, the PLU Castlereagh and the Province on Connaught. From Thomas's birth certificate, I know his parents were William and Elenor Boyne. Birth was recorded in the District of Ballaghadeaaen, the registrar's District of Caskleea, in the county of Mayo and Roscommon. I am sure these spellings are incorrect. I also have a copy of the baptismal certificate, for the Diocese of Elphin, in the Parish of Longhglynn. The godparents were Hubert and Catherine Kane.
I know from the 1901 census, that William was a farmer, Ann Regan, listed as mother lived with them and there were now four children. Thomas, Thady, Anne and Michael. From my grandfather Thomas, Elenor died young and William remarried. There were three more sons from the second wife. All four of the children from Elenor came to American in the 1920's and never went back to visit. The three sons from the second marriage did not marry and stayed in Ireland.
This is all the information I have of my relatives in Ireland. I am coming to visit in early spring next year and would like to visit in that area and find out more about our Ireland family, but I really have no idea where to go and even where to stay.
