Hi, johnshaw I am new to this and only did my first posting yesterday but on reading them last night I came across your posting of the 3rd August 2005 and very much hope that you still use Sligo Roots Chat because I am very excited to find that our postings tie together and that we are related through marriage.
This also ties in with crofton who posted on 25th June 2009 with brilliant info. and who is also related to me by marriage in the same link and I hope that he/she still uses this service. If so please both of you do please respond on roots chat.
Please see my posting of yesterday.
Bartholomew Morrisroe who married Mary Ann Crofton was my great grandmother's brother. My great grandmother was Sarah Morrisroe and she married Michael McDonagh (1831) and they lived in Derrygolagh.
Hope to see your postings.
