Hello.I found new information on my (new) husband's ancestors this summer, and I forgot to post it on some of the Boards.I'd like to offer it here;I'm copy/pasting my message from one of the Lists atwww.rootsweb.comfrom last August.
I have just received information on my husband's great-grandparents, Peter and Margaret GAVIN of Waltham, MA, US.
Peter was born ~1859 in County Galway, and his parents were Cornelius GAVIN and Margaret _____.
Margaret was born ~1860 in County Galway, and her parents were Patrick WHELAN and Bridgit KEARNS.
They seem to have come over to the US as single people in 1883 as they married in Waltham, MA, in 1884. They had 8 children who seem to have all lived to adulthood, and I have 4 of them married in Waltham. Peter died there in 1906 and Margaret died there in 1916.
Unfortunately the information I just received does not offer any other information except that Peter and Margaret and their parents were all born in Ireland.
I'm curious if anyone is researching Cornelius GAVIN's family or Patrick WHELAN's family from the early to mid-1800's.
