I have Carrs coming from Ireland, but they are Henry and Mary, their
children born around 1880.
Do you know anything more about exactly where in Ireland she was born?
You could look for her parents in Donegal in the 1901 census, although
I suspect there were more than a few sets of Thomas and Susan Carr in
1901 in Donegal. Did she have any siblings? That might help you locate
the parents in the 1901 census.
The Carrs tended to be from limited areas in Donegal (as I recall),
especially around Kilcar and west of Derry. Mine are from near the
Grianán, just west of Derry.

Hello. I am new to this list. I am looking for information on a Kath. Bridget Carr. We have her birthdate as 1877 and the marriage license listed her from Donegal. Her parents were Thom. & Susan Carr. The daughter sailed to the USA alone. The boarding pass states:
United States Mail Steamers
issued to: Kath - Carr
J. J. McCormick, Agt.
540 Smithfield st
also states that the steamers sail regularly to and from New York and Glasgow via Londonderry.
That is all I have on her. She was my great grandmother. I am so hoping that someone can help me. I want to know about her and her family & life in Ireland. It is possible that I have living relates.

I think you might want to consider the smallish (102 acres) townland of
Drumadoney. It's in Donegal civil and RC parish and less than 3 miles due east of
Donegal town. I'm sure that would have been close enough, to have been
considered as being "from the town of Donegal".

Pete Schermerhorn, in the glorious Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts
have been searching for my g-grandfather John Samuel Teas for many
years. Family stories say he was born in Ireland. In the last two
years I have finally found a connection and I have listed below the
data that I have found.
The first break is finding his brother William's name in the New York
passengers list. He came to New York on 18 April 1849 with his wife
Mary Jane and second son John P. His first son William arrived in
1852 with John and Mary Smythe. From this information I was able to
find William and Mary's marriage record which gave me their father's
names, Moses Teas and Thomas Morrow.
Since I will never be able to travel to Ireland, I am wondering what
my next steps would be to finding more information on any of the
Teas's listed below.
I will be very grateful for any help you can give.

I found my grandmothers passenger list. She landed in Boston in 1909 and her place of birth was listed as Drumedona, Ireland. Has anyone ever heard of Drumedona? I had been told verbally that she was from the town of Donegal. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks,Jack Godsill
