Joseph, Last weekend we had as guests Bill and June Frawley with whom you have been corresponding re: the Lawless ancestors.
I am the daughter of Theresa Finnell Wall, daughter of Theresa Kinsella Finnell,daughter of James Kinsella and Ellen Sheahan, son of Thomas Kinsella and Elizabeth Lawless. I believe I have a copy of the birth certificate for your Michael, baptized Oct. 8th, 1839, sponsors William Murphy and Bridget Kinsella. We were in Gorey in '99 and stopped at St. Michael's.The terrific pastor there at the time (he died suddenly last Christmas time) sat down and copied out the certificates and then went to lunch with us. We have probably missed you in NM this summer.We are in Albuquerque.My husband is a retired medieval, Renaissance & Reformation history professor at UNM.You, according to the North book, are about the age of our youngest child, Jim. Let me know if you would like me to mail a copy for you.It appears we are researching the same Lawless and Kinsella families.
