Re: So many Tormeys!! Tormeys in Ireland
I am hoping to visit Ireland in late May and want to go particularly to counties Westmeath and Meath where my Tormey ancestors lived before coming to America in 1847. Is there anyone in Ireland who particularly does research of the Tormeys there? Wanting to know where our Tormeys lived particularly at the time when they left Ireland. Were they tenant farmers like so many at the time. An old family story is that a "Grandmother Tormey" in our line used to have her own pony cart that she rode into Dublin, way back when. I'd like to know about the churches in the area. Clonmellon, etc. hoping to hear from someone.
