Thanks for the Info! Michael Greeley and John Greeley and a Mark Greeley ended up in Wapello Co, Iowa. Some Fahy families also ended up in Wapello Co, Iowa. The families then spread out into other areas of Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska.
I have Patrick Greeley born in app. 1826 in Creganna and died 19Feb1906 in Cregana. It seems a lot of people left Creganna and surrounding area during the Famine. Was there an Emigration Scheme? How did they all afford to emigrate at this time?
Are there any Books, etc. about this area?
Thanks for any help!
