All of Michael & Sarah Larkin's children settled in New York between 1872-1880.

Our search for direct relatives in Lusmagh, Banagher, Birr, and its surroundings have come up empty.

The hope is, with this message, to find ancestors via Michael & Sarah's siblings, cousins....

  • I just made a post about my GGGG Grandfather Patrick Glynn (abt1772-1832).  My records show that he was married to a Bridget A. Larkin (abt1771-3Jan1847).  My information shows Patrick being of Lusmagh and Bridget A. of Gortanisky Lusmagh.  As they were in the Lusmagh vacinity and catholic I expect there is a substantial probability that they are related to you.   Bridget A. Larkin's father was John Larkin (1745-1805) of Gortanisky Lusmagh and a brother John II (abt 1775 - unknown) also of Gortanisky Lusmagh.  Ancestry shows that a Sarah Larkin (managed by sjlarkin11) is a 5-8th cousin to me. I hope this helps?  - Bill Glynn
