Bryan, Mary (Reilly) Carey Family, Aughadoon, Belmullet to Lost Creek, Pennsylvania. SS Corean 1884

My ancestors settled in Centralia, Pa. very close to Lost Creek. My ancestors were the Ned Lavelle family and crossed on the SS Nestorian March 30, 1883. I am writing a family history of the Lavelle family and have documented and told the story of all who came over. If you would like to share, so would I.

Jordan, Barrett, Cawley, Geraghty Families, Mullet Peninsula, County Mayo to Rushville, Indiana.  (SS Nestorian & SS Waldensian)

My Grandmother Annie Geraghty (Garrity) was on this ship also. I wonder if we are related, as her [mother] was Anne Gaughen. [My Great-Grandmother]

Another variation of Togher is Taugher. Pat Taugher of Shraigh,Bunniwillan area married my grandfather’s sister, Mary Dent, Grand-daughter of Ned Barrett from his first wife, Nappy Gaughan. The Taughers went to Holyoke and later settled near there in South Hadley, MA.
