Re: Moate Tormeys
Yes, James, David and Jo were my uncles. My father was John. I recently had a DNA test and my nephew and I are now trying to build the family tree, but there are still a few gaps. Owen, born 1870, had a sister Bridget, born 1868, and brothers Peter, 1871 (my grandfather), and Michael, born 1872. According to passenger lists, Michael immigrated to Australia. I am still to find more siblings. Their father, also Owen, born 1826, was married to Bridget Campbell, born 1839. Her father was Peter Campbell, and mother Bidy Mc Keown. Havenít found dates yet and am still looking for more on Peter Campbell. My fatherís brother, also Owen, born 1897, raised him when their parents died. I know he immigrated to America, because they used to meet up every few years. I think he lived in Florida. My Dad moved to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Is this Owen your connection? If he is, we are quite closely related. I have also found a first cousin through DNA testing and he is going to Moate this week to get hold of more records. I can forward more info when I get it.
