: My ggf's brother, Michael Mahon, indicated his birthplace as Gob on his naturalization certificate. I don't have a clue what he meant. There are no places called Gob. There is a Gubb on Lough Allen, but no Mahons show up there.
: Michael was the son of Patrick Mahon (or Mahan) and Rose Foley and was born in 1839. I am most anxious to find out where these folk are from in Leitrim. My ggf was James Mahon, born ~ 1840 and Frank Mahon born in 1827. They all came to Worcester Mass in the 1840/1850 time period.
: Please e mail me any ideas about Gob or my Mahons.
I am a native of Mohill Co. Leitrim, Your relations
appear to be from the northern end of the county though near Lough Allen
