: : and settled in the mabgate district of leeds.
: : as far as i know i do have relatives in leitrim as they came over for my grandmothers funeral but i was young and dont really remember a lot about it. i recently started to get interested in my roots and wondered where i could find anything about how far back my name goes
: Hello Stephen - my great grand mother was Monica Rourke who married Patrick Durr of Roscommon - sadly she died in her early 20's giving birth to my Grand father Patrick Durr in 1895 - she died of Pnuemonia - that is all that I know of her. Good luck in your search
I am interested in your Monica Rourke from Roscommon do you know who her parents were or what part of Roscommon she came from. What about brothers and sisters???
hope to hear from you from downunder
