Friel Family Genealogy Forum
Thank you very much for the information about Rockaway. I did not know about the ferry from Brooklyn to Rockaway. That area as the place in question makes more sense to me than New Jersey or Staten Island.
There were/are several Friel families in Drumhallagh. I am related to one of them, and suspect a connection with a second. There is a Winifred "Uney" Friel in my family tree; actually there are two Winifreds. The first was born about 1878 in Drumhallagh and married James McGinley who was brother to my great-greatmother. The second Winifred was born to a MaryAnn Friel around 1886 (I don't know the father's first name). This Winifred Friel was a relative but I am not sure of the relationship.
