OK I have traced myself back to my 3rd Great Grandfather Micheal Maroney. Now I am stuck. He originally came from Tipperarry (sp) Ireland. I am not sure what year he left Ireland or what year he got to America. However I do know he served in the Civil War as a Private for either Maryland or West Virginia. I will post again tomorrow. I will then have his exact unit and date of birth. The day he was born was May 29.
