I am researching the family name Ruane, from the Kiltmagh area
of county Mayo, Ireland.To date I have determined that the
family were farmers.The earliest ancestor that I have found
is Jack Ruane, born approx, 1810.He had at least one son named
Patrick who also worked the family farm.Patrick had several
children, most of whom left Ireland for England and the U.S.
I'm also researching the family names Phillips, Ingleby and Joy.
If anybody has any information that may relate to any of these
names, please drop me an e-mail.
