Re: McDONALD or MacDONALD brothers of Monaghan Ire before 1840
I will have the tree this weekend.
I cant wait to see if there are any names you have mentioned in my tree.
Mt brother remembers when he was a kid, shortly after he and my parents came here(maybe early 60's), my father took him on a ride to find relatives of his mother in pennnsylvania. They would have been Boylan's.
So there are some others I would like to find too.
Monaghan is an incredibly cool little town. There is alot of history connected to the war in 1916. My grandfather fought in that and was in Ballykinlar prison in 1921. He eventually became a TD and the town clerk.
We have an autograph book of his from his time in prison. It is incredible.
I will be in touch after the weekend.
