|I have been working on our family tree for about 25 years now. It has become somewhat of a passion. I am searching for the (Denis) GAVIN family in both County Clare and Lynn, Boston & Haverhill, Massachusetts.My grandmother's family name was ROCHE. Her family came in 1850's from County Kerry, Ireland. THOMAS & MARY (MARTIN) ROCHE brought their family (MARY, MICHAEL, JOHN, JAMES & MARGARET) to settle in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Mary (b. c1829) married James O'Brien in 1855. Michael (b. c.1831) married Mary Barry in 1855. John (b. c.1834) married Brigid M. Shea in 1854. James (b.c.1837) married Mary Power(s) in 1857. Margaret (b. c.1836) married Michael C. Nolan in 1858. All weddings were in Haverhill and all|
settled there and raised families.
Other names: (Mc)LYSAGHT, JORDAN, DONLON,from County Clare; FOLEY from Limerick, HOAR(E) from County Kerry.
BANAHAN & BURNS from County Roscommon & YUSKA from Lithuania they settled in the NY, NJ, PA area.
