I posted a followup to Katleen about the Harty cemetery in Phillipston Mass. It is my family.
Just letting you know my gg grandfather Thomas Harty of Phillipston, Mass served in the civil war. He was wounded but was lucky to escape with his life.
Google Oliver Harty - Knocklong, Limerick, Ireland. A surprise awaits you. Not all the Harty warriors were cannon fodder. At least on the other side of the Atlantic. Prepare to learn about the WILD GEESE.
Patricia Harty is the editor of Irish Times and she has posted a number of stories about our Harty clan. Google her as her news site is online.
She mentions that Richard Harris, the actor who starred in Camelot, and sang the song 'Mcarthurs Park,' is related to us. His mother was a Harty from Limerick.
