Hello Hope, I am always interested in updating the family tree. I have very little on Michael's parents. I have him born on March 14, 1837 in Limerick, Ireland to Lawrence and Ellen. I have Lawrence's year of birth as 1798 and death as 1865 with no dates. I do not have their marriage information. I do not have any parental info on him. I do not have Ellen's maiden name but show her as born in 1812 and died in 1890. I have a brother to Michael named Patrick born in 1835. I would love to get more information on your family.
