Glad to give a little more detail, but I had some trouble with the email address>

Here's what I know:

Well, first thanks for the prompt response.

Now, let's see if we have the same folks in mind.

My great-grandfather was John M. McGarry (born in Northern Ireland). He indeed married Elizabeth 0'Flynn. They had five children: Kathleen P; John J.; Sara F. (my grandmother); Alice M.; and Claire F.

Elizabeth was the daughter of one Dennis O'Flynn who was apparently born in England, married a woman from Ireland and ended up living with his daughter and son-in-law in Detroit.

My sense was that Elizabeth O'Flynn was born in Canada (the McGarrys clearly lived there at some point).

That's what I know. Anything else (boat numbers, parents, etc.) would be gratefully appreciated.

Happy to return the favor, if I can.
