Re: john j. tormey, brooklyn, ny
Dear Sheila, Your email was amazing, and full of new information and discussion leading to more questions. We are definitely related, coming as we do from Westmeath Tormeys. I think the address for the Tormey Auctioneers was Aran Quay and I have a copy of a book about Father Michael Tormey who was not an Archbishop, but a well known priest, poet and patriot.
My own branch was from Derrynagarragh where Thomas and James were millers, as were many of the Tormey men in the 1800s. Of course, your mention 0f a 500 year history delights me no end, and I hope you can uncover more from your uncle's letters.
I'll be in touch again, as I hope you will, and I cannot thank you enough for writing.
Sincerely, Marybeth Tormey Stevens
