HI Paula, thanks for the reply and offer. When are you planning on going to Ireland? I'd love to go myself oneday. I was in touch with an Ian Blagrave in England who had written a family history but tying into the Irish branch is hard. From what I can tell my Blagrave, Maria, belonged to the Church of Ireland. Her husband, John B. Gill was also probably protestant. All I know is that Maria's father was John Blagrave and John's father was Thomas Gill. They both lived near Clara in Kings County when they were married in 1846. I'll have to look at specifics of what you can look for. I'd like to know more about John Blagrave the father. During the famine he may have went back to England. If there is a cemetery record of St. Brigids Protestant church in Clara it may give clues. Do you know who your ancestors are? I know some Blagraves went to Canada and then to the US and there was also a Richard Blagrave who came to NY or Philadelphia. Mine came to Iowa by 1849 so they must have been in NY for awhile. Some sat they came via New Orleans but I haven't seen it yet. If I can help you in any way let me know. Thanks again, Brad
