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.
