Place of migration
Migrated to/Born in USA

My great-great grandmother, Mary FOLAN, was born on 5 December 1844 (the year I’m not exactly sure of, but this is probably close) in Letterard Townland, Moyrus/Carna Parish, Union of Clifden, County Galway. She married Thomas CLOHERTY (also spelled “Claugherty”) in Moyrus/Carna Parish on 29 Oct 1866. They came to the United States with six of their children (a seventh was born in the USA) on 24 April 1884, aboard the ship “Canadian.” Eventually they made their way to St. Paul, Minnesota. They were part of the Tuke’s Scheme of Resettlement, which saw quite a few Irish immigrants to my area during the mid-1880s.

Mary Claugherty lived a long life, and died on 1 July 1940 in St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota.
