I am researching a Bernard McGovern that settled in May, Lee County, Illinois in 1855. Bernard is a native of Ballinamore, County Leitrim, Ireland... born approximately 1826. He emigrated in 1849 through New Orleans. He died after 1906 in Lee County.
I have been researching for the past two years my McGovern ancestors also from Ballinamore. Just in the last few monthes I read some postings on websites from a Bob Stover that is related to the Bernard McGovern listed above. It appears Bob has changed email addresses and I can no longer contact him. I would like to find other people that might be related to Bernard McGovern of May. I feel that there is a very good chance that my ancestors are related to this Bernard.
