Your details caught my eye this afternoon: I am originally from Clenaghoo, Ballinamre, Co. Leitrim. My grandfather was John Prior who had 2 sons and a daughter. My father is still living in Clenaghoo, and while I might not be able to help you very much, I can certainly direct any questions you may have to him
Looking for descendents of John Prior, who came to this country in 1905 from Ballinamore, County Leitrim, Ireland. He was my grandfather's cousin, and I would love to know more about him. I just found the ship manifest for my grandfather, Francis Hoey, on the Ellis Island site. My grandfather came over to an uncle in Rhode Island, his sister Mary came over to a brother, James Hoey in New Haven, and I see a John Prior listed on the same ship who came over to his cousin, James Hoey, at the same address in New Haven. Would love to hear from anybody who knows about this John Prior.
