When I found the obit saying the family was from Bray I was surprised anyway because family history Always said they were from CorkCo.  No "BRAY" there!  Guess I Never Will know where they were from!  Lea Mitchell in CT,USA

The daughter Mary (born after the family arrived in NY) married in the US as a Catholic but in the next generation I find a record of a son John (b) 1833/34 in Ireland being mentioned as Church of England which seems odd to me.  I thought if not Catholic it would be Church or Ireland.  Lea

The obit just said Bray,Ireland.  Are you saying there are 2 Bray's in Ireland?  Where is the other?  I can't really understand what you mean by what you have written here.   Lea

Christopher,Thank you very much.  I still wonder Why an Irishman living in the US would list himself as a member of the Church of England.  But now that I think about it I remember it wasn't Him but his married daughter who married a Canadian and lived in Canada who said she was Church of England.  Were many Canadian's  COE?  In Quebec Prov.?

After more than 30 years research I found an obit for one of my Irish immigrants and it states he was born in Bray.  The names are as stated.  If anyone lives in Bray and can do research for me there I would greatly appreciate it.  The family left during the potato famine and are found in the US first in 1850.  Please contact me at  **** Thank you,  Lea Mitchell in CT,USA   PS  I am Soooo happy to finally discover Where in Ireland they were from!

I can't tell from the names if any of these are Catholic?  My family have been found in the US as both Catholic and Church of England.  Why would an Irishman belong to the Church of England ever?

After 30 years researching I finally found an obit for one of my Irish ancestors which states he was born in Bray which I have discovered is in Wicklow.  Is anyone here living in Bray and able to do research there?   (*) is my email addy.  I am in CT,USA.  Thank you.
