Tracing Relations.

Patrick Hogan is trying to trace his relations. His Great-great Grandfather was Michael Hogan (b. 1829- d. 1915) who was married to Mary Kilkeary and they had six children Patrick (my great grandfather)
Peter, Bridget, John, Michael and Mary. He lived in Lorrha where Patrick visited in July 2015. He does have a lot of information gathered already as listed below.  If you think you can help Patrick he can be contacted at:  Estrada de Seac Pai Van, One Oasis – Pena Tower 2, 30E, Coloane, Macau or his father in the US can be contacted at: James E Hogan, 612 Hood Blvd, Fairless Hills, PA 19030.

I have been using Ancestry.com to trace my family history. This is what I have so far:

Greetings from a descendant of Lady Jane (Carroll) Stanley originally from Lorrha. Jane was widowed at a young age and came to the USA (1870)at the age of 50 with four of her children. She settled briefly in Pennsylvania and then came across the Wild West to the early state of Kansas where they made their home amongst cowboys and Indians.

I am seeking birth details of my grandfather Charles Godfrey Boate in about 1863 in Lorrha. (He appears later in the British census of 1891). The deaths of my great-grandfather Godfrey Boate in 1888 and great grandmother Debora in 1886 both in Kilfadda are recorded. Please let me know if you have information about anyone in the area with the surname Boate.
