Mc Closkey Irish Memorial in Philadelphia
Posted by: george mccloskey (ID *****7639) Date: April 27, 2004 at 22:54:43

Did any one notice that the Philadelphia Irish Memorial has a stanchion stand with an engraved "photo" of the Mc Closkey Family of Adams Co., Pa., circa late 1890's right next to the Irish Great Hunger memorial in the park in downtown Philadelphia? Does anyone know how it got there and who, if anyone, is collecting names related to that family, since many Mc Closkey (Mc Cluskey) soldiers died at Gettysburg during the Civil War? Does anyone know where these soldiers might have come from in Ireland or how we can find out on line?
