About Our Family Research

My name is Anna Coughlin Parado. I have been researching my family tree for the past several years, trying to get as much information from my Aunts and Uncles before they joined my other ancestors. Both of my Grandfathers were named James Joseph Coughlin and decended from Irish stock. I have been able to trace back to my Great-great grandparents but some of this information is a bit sketchy. Many of my nearer relatives came from Virginia or West Virginia depending on the time and the Civil War.
On my father's side, the McDermott Cemetery headstones are almost free of any markings and only a few headstone remain. I know that my Mother's gr-grandfather Wm. Coughlin came over from Ireland with his brother Jimmie. Have no idea where he is! My Dad's gr-grandfather came over from Ireland and his sister Annie arrived a yr later, but where did she go or whom did she marry. From which port did these relatives enter the US?
