About Our Family Research

I am searching for information on the towns from which my two Irish ancestors came to the United States. They are:
My great-grandfather, Martin Lyons, b. 1830 in Ireland, emigrated to U.S. around 1850, lived in Connecticut; moved to Havell Street, Ossining, New York, around 1855, d. (?), buried St. Augustine's Cemetery, Ossining, Westchester County, New York.
My great-grandfather Thomas Forrest, b. 1845 in Ireland, d. 1919, Tuckahoe, Westchester County, New York, buried Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Eastchester, NY.

I am also searching for information about my great grandmother's sister, Katherina Friess, b. @1841 in Beuren, Duchy of Wurttemberg, Germany, arrived in New York in 1869.
