Joan, Good to hear from you. I live at Cary, McHenry Co, Illinois. My gr-grandparents on my father's side primarily came from Co Kilkenny Co to the Irish Prairie south of McHenry in the 1849-1856 period, but I am interested in all the some 200 families from southern Kilkenny who came to McHenry, and St.Patricks church there, which they founded. Almost all these families attended St. Senans catholic church at Kilmacow or St. Kilbeacon at Mullinivat ,Kilkenny Co, Ireland
I am interested in your data because I only show Richard Aylward married Mary Cleary, and their children. Julia, I only have her name. Patrick is show as bornMar 1831 at Kilkenny Co, died 8 Apr 1911 at Walworth Co, Wi.
As Richard named his first son Edward, based on Irish naming patterns, that would be his father's name, his mothers name would be Margaret Ellen or a equivalent of that Will look forward to hearing from you. Larry Phalinphalintl@aol.com
