We haven't found much once we get back to Ireland. Manus and Annie were the first in their family to come to America, Annie as a teen (indentured servant). They returned to Ireland for several years when they had children and lived with one of Annie's brothers. My grandmother remembers growing up in Donegal and attending anti-Protestant rallies with her brothers. They came back to America again in the late 1930s. Manus was the only one from his family to come to America. I don't know about cousins or aunts or uncles left in Ireland but surely he must have had some. As far as I'm aware, he didn't have any family already in America.

We keep hitting problems because the records are in Gaelic, and my grandmother only speaks a few basic phrases and swearwords in Gaelic at this point.
