I don't know from where in Ireland these people came.His name was WILLIAM DUNNIGAN, born about 1811, son of JAMES & ELISABETH ? He married BRIDGET MCGURK, daughter of AUREN & CATHERINE ?. They died in Great Barrington, MA. he in 1878, she in 1889.I have found both of their grave sites. I am trying to find out where in Ireland they came from & who their parents were. A relative says one daughter was born in County Monaghan, Ulster, so perhaps that is where Bridget was from. Ring a bell with anyone? They had 6 children, some in Ireland some in New York State.
