My greatgrandmother, Mary McAndrew, was born in County Mayo, Ireland and immigrated to the US around 1865 (according to the census).
Back in the 1970s, I'd found that she came over with several siblings (mostly brothers as I remember) ... and I'd traced the brothers to Pittsburgh, PA. In fact, I even managed a meeting with one of the descendant's families.
Can't find any of that info now.
I have some old letters between Mary and the Mother Superior of a Convent in Bellmullet, Ireland re a brother who'd remained behind ... and, at the time of the correspondence, was ill (and later died) in the convent. Letters to the convent in 1959 (when I was a child) revealed that this brother left 27 children upon his death!!!
I'd like to make contact with McAndrew descendants from County Mayo ... as well as descendants of the brothers who migrated to Pittsburgh!
