Irish Roots
Posted by: Molly Kerby Date: July 23, 2001 at 09:39:32

I have recently become interested in my heritage and have traced the roots to Ireland. I know very little about my family, but here goes. My grandfather's name was Stanley (many called him S.B. for short) his wife's name was Lucille (no clue what her maiden name was). They were born in the late 1880's I believe and lived much of thier lives in Evansville, Indiana. My father's name was Ralph and he has a sister (still living) named Louise. If anyone has any information on this family or has run across anything that would help -- let me know. I have read some of the post and must add that I have traced the spelling of our name to County Kilkenney were it was originally, O'Kerby. Many changed to the Kirby spelling. The Gaelic also had an "O" in front of it.

Thanks,
Molly --- molly.kerby@wku.edu
