I am looking for information on my Williamstown, Galway Ireland Ancestors. Here's what I have.

My Grandfather, Thomas Joseph Kearns, left Galway, Ireland in 1891 with his Father, John Kearns and Margaret (Quinn) Kearns.

I hear that John's Father, Matthias Kearns and Mother, Margaret (Cuneeley?) was in England at the time - maybe in Merseyside (near Liverpool) - and, we think, died there. We don't know where.

I hear John's brother, Thomas, left Ireland (maybe in 1890s) and went to Canada. We don't know where and don't know if he had any family.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
