Hi I'm hoping someone can help or point me in the right direction with my brick wall so I live in Australia and no everything there is to know about this person from the time he was married until he died what I'm looking for is his information before he came to Australia. My 3rd g-grandfather is Patrick mckenna born co Monaghan 1836 to Bernard and Ann hoy/hoey or could even be roy or ray (with his thick Irish accent who knows) his father was a farmer and he stated on his marriage certificate he was a butcher on some of his children's birth certificates he says he's from Armagh and that's it that's all I know thank you for reading
