Mahon, county Meath
« on: Thursday 10 August 17 19:57 BST (UK) »
My grandma was Michael Mahon born around 1887, son of William and Anne Mahon. His brother was James born around 1891 and his sister Alice, born around 1895.  Are there any of my relations out there?

Thanks for that info, but was just wondering if
I could get in touch with any descendants.  Wondering where my cousins might have gone to.

Yes indeed they were my grandparents.  How clever of you to have traced all of this.  I am so trying to find any cousins of mine who may still be in Ireland.

Thanks very much inde again.

Looking at the building returns for Westmanstown 1911
houses 7 to 14 were owned by  G Shackleton & Sons the local flour millers so it is most likely that Joseph Melia was also employed there.
