I have posted several message on this forum trying to find anything about my great grandfather, Euseby Elms, born in Ireland and lived in the USA. Finally, the 3g-granddaughter of Euseby's sister, Mary Jane Elms,found me on this forum. She gave me his parents' names, Thomas Elms and Elicia Egers/Eggers.I was told they grew up in County Wexford, Ireland but am not sure of their birthplaces. Does this connect to anyone else out there?
Below is information on Euseby's descendants:
