Re: Gildea family from Co Donegal Ireland
My Gildea family relatives are from Glenconwell, Ardara (the last townland in the Ardara parish off the Glenties Road).

My great grandfather was Cornelius Gildea, son of Patrick Gildea and Mary Maguire.
Cornelius' brothers and sisters were:
Bridget (came to America)
Patrick (stayed in Glenconwell)
John (came to America and died in 1909)
Suzanne (married Rutledge of Glenties)
Cornelius came to America about 1892 and married Ann Kennedy (from the "Downstrands" area of Ardara) about 1897.
I have much information on this family and other Gildea relatives from Glenconwell.
