Frank, David, Ellen and all;
My grandmother, Margaret McManus, is from Boho, Toneel North to be specific,
and one of the first notes I put on my Family Tree ( about 1995) was about
her father, Patrick McManus. It was from a letter from my uncle stating that
Patrick, his grandfather, might have been a member of Parliament, because he
traveled back and forth to England and spoke at the Diamond to advise on
current events and read. This was mid 1800's, Patrick was dead before the 1901
On their marriage certificate, 1874, Patrick is listed as a farmer. I have
looked at many different resources, and have never found anything to indicate
Patrick was other than a farmer.
I believe I asked on this list before, how difficult was it to travel back
and forth to England? Need to look back at my old notes. And for some
reason, I want to say the 1901 census listed Margaret as farmers widow. Might be
wrong on that, again, need to look at my notes again.
Love this list;
