Greetings Alan : My MCHALE's ended up by way of "England" in a an area of Pennsylvania , USA ,that attracted many Irish from County Mayo . These MCHALE's settled in Luzerne County around the small cities of Scranton , Wilkes-Barre , and Pittston ,Pa. My bunch would include my maternal grandfather , Thomas Edward MCHALE , b. England, abt. 1872-1934, Pittston,Pa.( he immigrated btwn 1870-1910) ; his brothers :Alfred MCHALE , b.England abt.1886 , d. at sea on way over, John MCHALE b.1867,d.USA., Patrick MCHALE ,?, Anna MCHALE , & Mary MCHALE ,?. Their parents were John MCHALE ,b.abt 1839 ,"Lived in England ", d.abt 1/16/1899 , Pittston ,Pa. & his wife Mary MARTIN / MARTENS , abt.1840, d.abt.1910 , both probably Pa.No proof but I strongly suspect County Mayo origins . Are you aware of these folk or any others that went to Northeastern Pennsylvania ? Thanks for your efforts for all Mchale's ! Best', Joe McHugh , Cape Elizabeth ,Maine . USA . jfmchugh@maine.rr.com
