Hi
I have just come across this post.  I believe we may have a connection. My great grandmother Emily Foley may be the sister of William Foley.  Emily was born in Alexandria Egypt (as was all my family). There was also a brother Victor (my father was named after him) and their mother Hortense Zammit.  Emily Foley married Anthony Caruana and their only child John Caruana was my grandfather.
Michael Patrick Foley was born in 1845 in St James Jamaica (it seems the family moved around as there was a brother Maurice born in St Johns Canada and a sister Elizabeth born in Portsmouth UK).  Michael Patrick Foley's father was Maurice Foley and mother was Anna Schumacher.  Is there a connection?

Hi Carol,

Welcome to RootsChat.

I am very sorry but the email address we had for bonron is no longer working :'(, I have done a search and have been lucky enough to find a postal address.  I will send a letter to Bonron today to let him know of your reply I expect it will take a few days for him to receive and reply as it is "snail mail"

Regards

Sarah

P.S. That was our last stamp if anyone wishes to help support RootsChat.

Hello, It is lovely to hear from you. I have so little information on the Foley family, so anything you have anything, especially Michael, Edward's brother, and William's siblings, I would appreciate.  If I locate any other information, I will gladly share it with you.

I am the grand-daughter of 'Bonron's' aunt. She is 91 and still alive - the only one of Bonron's father's siblings. I want to see if I can get in contact with him - can you please help me?

Welcome to Rootschat, Keleb.

You will need to remove the aunt's name, as Rootschat prohibited the naming of those living. Click on the "modify" button to do so.
