Ray (if I may), I do wish I knew. Honestly, my ancestors were awful at records-keeping (I imagine they were far too busy trying to scrape a living). It was easy to trace back to John and Mary, but I worked like mad to find out even the possible locations within Mayo once that was established...it's as though they just wiped the slate clean and started over entirely, severing all ties (which, maybe they did). It's discouraging though, for me, because I really have this burning need "to go home" and I don't know where that is...does that make any sense? I can't remember how I came up with Lough Cullen, but I do remember it was a legitimate reason....I'd have to check back on my research.
