I don't have the information to hand (currently at work) but as I remember it:

Mary was the daughter of Hugh Braniff and Mary McKee. They were married in the parish of Ardkeen (Co. Down) and had 10 children, some born here in Ireland and some in Cleator Moor in Cumbria, England where they moved - Hugh found work in the mines there. Two eldest had moved to the US (Iowa) when Hugh died and they brough Mary and the remaining family out to Iowa.

Please contact for more information - I'd be interested in Mary's family as I've not a lot of details on the girls after they married.

(Hugh was, as I remember, a cousin to my g-grandfather. Three brothers lived in the house my parents live in at the moment - one was my g-g-grandfather, one was Hugh's father and I've no real information on the other except that he had a daughter Ann.)
