I have found more information about my family, so maybe someone has a connection. My grt-grandmother, Elizabeth Lalor/Lawlor was born in Ballymorris, Lea, Mountmellick, Co Laois, ireland about 1850.her parents were Denis Lalor and Ellen/Helen Byrd. She married John Mullin of Co Roscommon, in Chicago, Illinois in 1872. She had a brother Christopher (1845 - 1920) and , I believe a sister margaret/Peggy who married a William Whelan/Whalen and also lived in Chicago. If any of this matches your family, please contact me.
