I am looking for Margaret Donovan (other names-Gerrity & Sullivan) from Boston. Her family was from Dublin & she may well have been too.
My great grandfather was Timothy Sullivan from Count Mayo I believe & my great grandmother was Margaret (Donovan maiden name) Sullivan. He settled in the area of Wilkes Barre Pa. He married Margaret who already had 2 children, Francis(Elmo) & Lucille Gerrity(Geharty?)Gable lived in Florida. Then they had 2 children Kate(Katherine) & Margaret(Toodie). Margaret was my grandmother. They also lived in Brooklyn New York. I also heard we have a famous boxer in the Donovan family. I heard there is a statue in Dublin of this boxer. Does any of this sound familiar?
