Hello Kevin, I hope you are still accepting requests for help in the Belmullet area. I am searching for information on the following:
LAVELLE, PatrickmarriedREILLY, Celiaapprx. 1765 A known daughter:Bridget Lavellewho married:
GINLEY, Martinapprx. 1790 A known daughter:Ellen/Evelyn Ginley who married:
GAUGHAN, Phillipapprx. 1813 They had the following children:Patrick, Winifred, Judith or Julia and Sarah.I don't know other chilren's names. I do know that Judith or Julia Gaughan married Anthony Kelly approx. 1840 in Mayo.Left Ireland apprx. 1846.
Patrick Gaughan married MARY LAVELLE 1850 in MN., USA. Mary Lavelle already had a daughter named Ellen, born in Canada.( I suspect shortly after ship docked ).I suspect this Mary Lavelle was married to a cousin of the Gaughans. I cannot get behind the 1850's. This may be too much information, however, I did not want to take a chance and give too little. Thank you Kevin for anything you can do.I can't make it back into Ireland without some help.
