Sarah Mae Fogarty emmigrant from Ireland 1880

Sarah Mae Fogarty was born in 1876 in Ireland, supposedly Tipperary. As a child of 4 in 1880 she emmigrated to the US. The only other family member we know that was on that boat was a sister Delia. (family lore is that Delia was kidnapped or fell over board before reaching the USA). There was two or three other siblings on that boat, names not known. Parents not known. Sarah wound up in Portsmouth Virginia where in 1892 she married William E. Shane. My wifes grandmother Pearl Mae Shane was born to that union. Anyone with any knowledge of Sarah Mae Fogarty's Parents please e-mail me at

Thank You
