Hello Freda, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Hey, wouldnt it be something if we were both chasing the same family!! I really do not know if my G.Grandfather William had any brothers or sisters, I should imagine he would have as folks had large families way back then. I had a tough time trying to get a marriage cert. for him and my G.Gran Mary (Coogan) I had almost given up when a lovely lady in Ireland answered my "Desperate" message and amazed me by getting it for me.On the marriage certificate of William and Mary, William's father's name is given as JamesLAWLOR, a shoemaker. Their place of residence is given as Hacketstown, which is I believe Co. Wicklow. Do you have any idea what your G.Grandfather did for a living?I also found out a son of William's became a shoemaker. This trade seemed to run in the family. William and Mary married in 1870 and his age is given as 21years. This means he was born in 1849. Was your G.Gran. born in 1847?
