my great great grandfather was born in the area of county clare.... his name was ALFRED JOHN VESEY DAVOREN and his sons' name is ALFRED JOHN VESEY DAVOREN..many of brothers, uncles and sisters have variations of these names or these name reversed...ie) vesey john or john alfred.....

my great grandmother was born in scotland..
i know her family name is MacDonald

they met on the boat on the way over here to canada...my great great grandfather travelled all over canada to find a place that be kind to his asthma...while staying in Alberta, Canada he became a member of the ROYAL NORHTWEST MOUNTED POLICE..(he also enlisted in the army and was sent over seas...to africa????...but due to his asthma was honorably discharged)after a few years in Alberta finally found Kamloops, BC as a perfect climate to live with his asthma.
I'm telling you all about this because I know he kept in contact with relatives back in County Clare and I hope someone knows somebody or such....
please let me know.....
thanks..
