    Sharon you are an answer to my prayers. My gggggranfather, Thomas was one of the United Irishmen. I say that proudly and hope not to offend anyone. I am sort of a maverick in my own right here in USA. My hometown of Philadelphia, Pa was where Thomas’s grandson emigrated to and married Mary. Since I also know the Doughertys, the Scanlons all came originally from either County Limerick, Claire or Cork. I beg of you to give me some proof before I pass on. TFrost
