I have read with interest the postings concerning the PERSSE family of Galway. So far I have not seen any mention of Anthony PERSSE, son of Richard PERSSE and Julia LALLY. Does anyone have any information on this part of the Galway PERSSEs. I am probably clutching at straws but am wondering was this Anthony a Sailor, did he move to Liverpool and marry a Theresa LYONS. Was his father Richard'socc. a Tailor. Was the spelling of Anthony PERSSE changed to PIERCE. If anyone can answer any of the above questions I would be grateful.
