Mary Lavelle
« on: Friday 09 February 18 00:20 GMT (UK) »
I'm helping research the maternal side of my friend's family.Her mother was Elizabeth Joyce born in Glasgow.I have traced quite a few of Joyces that were her ancestrors in Ireland but my friend said that on a trip to Ireland 1964/5 she met a lady called Mary Lavelle.This lady was living in a very modest house but she can't remember where. If I could find a link between Mary Lavelle and the Joyces it might solve the problem of who this lady was.
  Any help much appreciated

 Many thanks for all your help.That Mary Lavelle was born in 1909 and her mother's maiden name was Joyce,looks like the right person
