Migrated to/Born in USA

My grandmother Maria Agnes Walsh was born in, or near, Gort in 1892 or 1893. Her parents were Martin and Mary Walsh. Martin may have been a tailor. Siblings were James Patrick, Delia Gertrude and Norah. There may have been a brother Martin but I'm not sure. My grandmother emigrated to Boston, USA in 1908. James, and Delia also emigrated to Boston in the early 1900s. Norah, born in 1901, visited Boston in 1934ish and returned to Ireland.

In 1915 my grandmother married my grandfather Frank McSherry who emigrated from from Gortindarrah, Kinlough, Leitrim in 1906. They had 6 children---Francis who died days after birth, Mary, Katherine, James, Joseph and Virginia.

I have not been able to find any record of my grandmother's family in Ireland. If anyone comes across anything that may be a match please message me. I would love to know more. I've been able to find records about my grandfather's family in Leitrim.

Thank you!
