I am searching for relatives of the Martin and Ellen (nee Edwards) McGovern (Goveran) family, married in 1878. Also, the Honor (nee Goveran) and Martin Dolan family, married in 1865.
I visited Roscommon last year, however, I could not find anyone who knew the McGoverns nor could I find any gravestones. I was able to obtain my grandfather George McGovern's birth certificate and have since become an Irish citizen. I obtained a family history report from the County Roscommon Heritage and Genealogy Company which contains birth and marriage records of my grandfather's family. James McGovern died in 1948 in Manchester, England. All the other siblings (except John who died in Castlemore in 1899) emigrated to the United States, starting in 1898 - I found them all on the Ellis Island site. My McGoverns lived in Chicago, Illinois; Cuba, New York; and Oil City, Pennsylvania.
Thank you for taking time out to read my message!
