My grandfather was Patrick Lyna, born in 1853 in Kells and married to Catherine Tayhan in New York City, USA. His father was Bernard Lyna that married Marcella Lynch in Kells. Marcellas's father was Philip Lynch. married to a Marcell O'Bryan. Believe she was from Summerhill, Meath. Any information would be appreciated.

    RootsIreland shows five children for this couple.  One is not named. Born in 1826, perhaps it is Marcella.

    I hope this is helpful.
