Dear Chuck, I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I was wondering if you may be able to help me. My G-G-Grandfather, Michael McDonnell came from Co.Offaly(Kings Co.) in the 1880s. He had a brother Patrick McDonnell who married a Marian Murray in 1880. They lived in Cloghan, near the border with Roscommon. They had about 5 children, but around 1888, Patrick remarried a woman called Mary-Anne Kelleher, and they had 7 more children. The whole family emigrated to Australia in 1910. We don't know what happened to Marian Murray, but her Grand-daughter (My cousin)is desperate for any info. As I say I know it's a longshot, but does any of this sound familiar to you. Thanks, John McDonnell.
