Hello, Gary, here's an odd coincedence for you. My gggrandfather's name was Michael Guinty. His family came from Ireland in 1847. This is their family:
Patrick MCGINTY- father, b. abt 1810 in Ireland.
Mary MCGINTY- mother, b. abt 1815 in Ireland. Her maiden name was either HANLEY, OR HENDLEY.

Children:

Daniel b. abt. 1832
Dennis b. abt. 1837
Ann b. abt. 1839
Michael b. 1841
Ellen b. abt 1843
Bridget b. abt 1845
Mary b. abt. 1848-The only child born in the US.
The last name may have been Guinty, or Ginty. There is an old family legend that Michael changed the name to sound "more German", as the Irish were ill treated in America at that time. Is there any connections to your family?
