I don't know if we are related or if I'm even doing this right but, my grandmother was born in Drumshanbo and her name was Mary Katherine
McPadden, she came to America in about 1927 and married my Grand father Joseph Martin. From what I have been able to find out she was
sponsored by the Travers family. Somehow the McQueeny name also comes into play. We visited Drumshanbo several years ago and met my dads
uncle Johnny, he was the post man for Drumshanbo. I have been trying to fid out more and I understand my fathers cousin Pat is also trying
to put together a family tree. Let me know something via e-mail as I am not real sure how I found this page. thanks, Patrick
