Fergus Family - Bekan/Brickeens

Hi, Looking for info on my dad's family. My dad was born (1925) in Cloontumper/Bekan he had 2 brothers, Martin <nickname Ginger & was well known for playing the Concertina,> & Austin, sister Margaret (Peg). Parents John & Margaret(nee Hunt). The Fergus Family lived next door to the Nolan Family. My dad's grandfather (John/Jack)was born in America (1892) & his brother was called Martin (1894 - America). Their dad was called Martin, 2 sisters Margaret & Mary (both not married). Martin Snr left Ireland to live in America with his wife (think she was called Anne(e) Quinn. Apparently she died when the boys (John & Martin Jnr) were young & Martin Snr brought them back to live with his sisters in Cloontumper/Bekan. They are all on the 1901 Leitrim/RoscommonCensus. Martin Snr returned some time later to America & never saw his sons again but sent money to his sisters to bring them up. Martin Snr, Margaret & Mary's parents were William & Bridget Fergus(nee McGah). Any info appreciated as my dad now quite ill & does not remember a lot about his family. Thanks - Rosaleen.
