We have just learned just little more about our Dolan and Norton (Naughton) lines in County Roscommon, Ireland. We are seeking information on James Norton (b. 1812, County Roscommon, Ireland) and his wife Anne Dolan (b. 1813, County Roscommon, Ireland). With this new research some new names were discovered and we hope some descendent of the Norton/Naughton....Dolan. Bannon and Elliott lines can help us out.

It appears that Ann Dolan, daughter of Timothy Dolan was from Ballymullavill, which is in the Civil and Catholic Parish of Kiltoom, immediately north and adjacent to the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Peter's and Drum Athlone, County Roscommon, Ireland.
We have just found out that James (Norton) Naughton's middle intial was "M."
We hope descendants of the Norton and Dolan lines can help us find the history of our ancestors.
