Just browsing. But my family comes from Ballyhaunis, Mayo, which is on the edge of Roscommon. My father has searched Ballyhaunis for references to this branch of the family. Many Fitzmaurices are buried in the churchyards, some references are available in baptismal/marriage records. And Roscommon is a stone's throw away. My great grandfather was Thomas who came in the 1840's and settled in Missouri. There's a family--Thomas's and Patrick's descendants-- reunion each year, last Sunday of June in Jefferson City, Mo.
