Re: Flood : Tipperary>Poultney Vermont
Hi Suzanne, My family was quite close to the Poultney Floods in previous generations. They were related through my great grandmother's mother Mrs. Daniel Fogarty nee Mary? Flood who perhaps never made it to America. She may have been a sibling of the original Flood who came to Poultney.
The original couple I believe are buried in St. Mary's Fair Haven, the mother being a Burke from Upperchurch Co. Tipperary. John Flood, the father of the large number of Flood children of Poultney,,was born at sea and married a Clifford woman as you are aware. She was the organist in the Poultney church for years. Dont know where this large brood got off to but descendants are not in Poultney now as far as I know. But then , maybe some are in the area and I just am unaware.
How's that for an inexact note! Get back to me if you want to.
