Thank you Roger I saw the article! Wonderful! As to my Duffys. They didn't come to Canada until 1911/1912. We found the family in Birr, County Offaly, in Ireland.. However, Edward Duffy, born 1879 or 1882, used an alias at times. We suspect he may have been from Galway area, but are unable to tie him down anywhere! Maddening! Since the books went to you, thus the problem solved, I asked Genforum to delete my inquiry there. I hope you are the only one who would be looking for Mary Dearborn.
