Re: DOOLAN'S FROM ROSCOMMON

In Reply to: DOOLAN'S FROM ROSCOMMON by MARY ROCK of 262

Mary,
This is all I have been able to discover about my Doolan family, from the book, "They Came to Mara." The names Patrick and Catherine reappear in this family as well, but then, they were common names. Note that there is an 11-year difference between Mathew and Catherine, leaving a lot of leeway for more siblings. If your Patrick had been the eldest or second eldest son, he may not have immigrated so as to take over the Doolan family farm in Roscommon. Younger brothers, without resources, often immigrated.
