I am new to this list. I am trying to research my ancestors in Ireland. I do not have much information but What I do have is the following:
My grandfather's name was James McDevitt and he was born in Ireland about 1889. He immigrated to the United States in 1912. I am not sure if he came directly from Ireland or if he came through Canada. He met and married my grandmother Josephine Turcott in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA. He was living in Charlestown- Massachusetts for the most of his remaining life.
I don't have any other information because all my uncles and aunts are deceased. James had my father John Charles McDevitt in 1915.
Any help at all would be really appreciated

Have you checked to see if your Sweeneys served in the Civil War? There is
an index to Civil War Pension cards online at Ancestry.com. They index
soldiers and widows who received a pension. The actual pension files are at
the National Archives and copies can be ordered.
I mention this as I made a break in a Civil War Widow's Pension file, in
which there were affadavits of the widow and her sister [my g-grandmother]
stating when and where the widow was born in Ireland AND the fact that they
I am new to this list.
Trying to track down a marriage record for John O'HARA and Rose-Ann CASSIDY.
The information I have is from birth records of their two youngest children born in Glasgow.
For date and place of marriage one reads '1864 May 1st Iskaheen near Muff Ireland' Rose-Ann is the informant; the other reads '1864 May 12th Donegal Ireland' John O'Hara is the informant.
Their eldest son John was born about 1864/1865 but I have been unable to locate his birth record. The next three children they had were all registered in Kilderry Derry.
I applied to the GRO in Dublin for the marriage certificate a year ago and they could find no entry. Are there any records held locally?
Would appreciate any advice as to where to go from here.

I'm new to this list, and have just been lurking for a while. Now I
guess it's time to put my brick wall where it can be seen and maybe someone
out there will have some information that I've been trying for 20 years now
I have a James WRAY, b Oct 1798 @ Co. Donegal, Ireland. He d 4 Nov 1863,
@ Philadelphia, PA.
He was in Pennsylvania before 1837. He marr Eliza FINLEY, who was b 23
Dec 1806 @ Chambersburg, Franklin Co., Pennsylvania. She d 210 July 1884 @
Kennebunkport, Maine (possibly visiting family or friends?)
Both James and Eliza are bur in Laurel Hill Cemetery, in or near
They had at least one child, a daughter, Elizabeth WRAY, b 22 Apr 1837 @
Philadelphia, PA, and d 14 Nov @ Greensboro, North Carolina. (Elizabeth
marr Harvey Tourtellotte CLEVELAND, b 1825 @ New York City, NY, and d 1902 @
Greensboro, No. Carolina.)
If anyone out there recognizes any of these names, I would really love to
hear from you. And if anyone needs info on James after he came to America, I
have some (not a whole lot, but some).
I'm really keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I don't know anywhere
else to look for James parents and/or siblings. He was my great grandfather.
Thank you for any help at all!!
