Murtagh Somers b.1812 d.1888

Hello,

I am looking for information on the parents of my great grandfather, Murtagh Somers.  His tombstone says, "Cruttenclough" and is listed in the Coon Graveyard records.  He was married to Margaret Kavanagh. Any family information would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Laura Klein

  • Wow! That was so fast!! Thank you very much for this.  It is good to have the other information too.  The other Murtagh was my grandfather's brother.
