The purpose of this site is to provide a place for family members and other interested researchers to learn more about my Family Tree Project and the surnames I am researching. I also want to provide a link for other researchers to be able to contact me.

All of my ancestors came from Ireland.
In fact, in the 19th century they all lived within a 20 mile radius of each other - just at the point where the counties of Cavan, Meath and Westmeath meet.

Surnames I am researching, by county, are:

BRADY - Fintavin, Lurgan parish
COONEY - Carricknamadoo/Waterloo - Killinkere parish
CROSSON - Greaghettiagh - Knockbride parish
FOX - Lear & Turfad - Knockbride parish
GAFFNEY - Tonagh area, Mountnugent parish
McCABE - Tonagh?, Mountnugent parish
McGEE - Kilatee/Maudabawn - Drumgoon parish
McMAHON - Kilatee/Maudabawn - Drumgoon parish
O'DONOGHUE - Tonagh?, Mountnugent parish
PLUNKETT - Tonagh, Mountnugent parish
SMYTH/SMITH - Fintavin, Lurgan parish

PLUNKETT (Loughcrew & Clonabraney branches) - Oldcastle (pre 1800)
