Looking for connections with my g-g-g-grandmother, Bridget Ledwich, probably of Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath. She married Bryan/Bernard Gibney on Feb. 26, 1829; he was born July 2, 1800 in that same area. I don't know when she died, but they had seven known children (taken from church records in Castlepollard). They were Phillip, Mary, Bridget, Patrick, Catherine, Anne, and Bryan. Virtually all of Patrick's descendents came to the US, as did Anne who married in Chicago and Catherine (my g-g-grandmother) who married James McCann in Castlepollard, where they had one son before also leaving for the US and Chicago. I don't know what happened to the other four siblings.
