I am looking for information about Prendergasts in Rhode Island.
A brother of my great-grandfather, Nicholas Prendergast, emigrated from Co. Wexford, Ireland (possibly the town of Gorey) and had a textile business "William H. Prendergast Mills Inc." in Pascoag, Rhode Island. We know that these american relatives returned to Wexford for a short visit in May 1929, and that their names were "Bill, Eileen, Ed, Marietta and Cousin Nellie". Unfortunately after that they seem to have lost touch completely. We know that Eileen Prendergast was married 11th Feb 1928, but not who she married, or indeed whether she was marrying into the Prendergast family. There also seems to have been a Mary Prendergast (? a sister of William and Nicholas) in Burrillville, RI, who was married to Mike (unknown surname), had 2 children and who died in childbirth in 1897. A letter from this Mary, mentions an aunt and a cousin Nellie Burke.
I'd be really interested to find out more information about these people
