|As a descendant of John McGrath of Chicopee, Mass. and his wife Catherine (Kate) Splan(e)of County Cork, Ireland, and also of Francesco and Pasqualina DeRespino of Sant'Angelo, Region of Naples, Italy. I am on a search.It seems that both John & Francesco were born abt. 1861. I assume Kate & Pasqualina were both born several years later. It has all been word of mouth so far. I am looking for conclusive documentation for these people. I am trying also to establish all overseas family roots, and documentation before we arrived here in America. I also would like to connect, eventually, to family that I have never met who are overseas. I also would like to hear from anyone even remotely related in the States. But I would someday like to visit the places where my families came from, and walk those same streets knowing that somehow deep in my soul we are connected.|
Names sought: McGrath,John(Mass. & Conn.)-Marriott,Robert(Mass.)-Cotec,?(Mass. & Canada)-O'Donnell, Richard(Brooklyn N.Y.)-Derespino, Francesco or Pasqualina(Italy & Brooklyn N.Y.)-Splan or Splane, Catherine(Mass. or Conn.) I KNOW you are out there! After all, we're all just cousins of varying closeness.
