Looking for connections of the Gardiner family of Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim, Ireland. Mathew (died 1876 buried Ardcarne) and Susan (née Irwin, died 1887 buried Ardcarne) had a number of children: Francis Irwin (b.1842), Robert (born 1843), Mary Anne (b. 1845), George Robert Vaugh (born 1847), Susan (born 1853), John (born 1854), Matthew James (born 1856 died 1904)and Margaret (born 1859). Mary Anne, Susan and Margaret lived in England. Francis Irwin lived in Los Angeles. I’m particularly interested in what became of Robert. His brother Francis Irwin Gardiner, went to the US in 1857.He worked on ships for a number of years. Francis married Susan McCourt. They lived in Los Angeles where he was postmaster around 1892.Their children were Robert St. John Gardiner, who lived in San Francisco; Emily Jane Gardiner, a graduate of the Los Angeles High School and State Normal;Frances Cora Gardiner; Elizabeth Gardiner, a graduate of the Los Angeles State Normal; and Margaret Gardiner, who was residing with her mother at Los Angeles in 1904.
