Since my last post, I've found out more info on my mother's family from her...
My grandfather was Thomas McSorley (born 3 April 1975, died 6 March 1931) of Tattymulmona, Fintona, Co Tyrone.
His parents were James McSorley and Mary Crumley of Attaghmore, Fintona. We have no dates for James or Mary. All my mother knows about James is that he had two brothers who were were unable to pay their rent and were transported on a convict ship to Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania).
Thomas was one of six children. His brothers and sisters were...
James McSorley who went to America,
Jane McSorley who married a man called Madden and went to America,
a sister who 'married a British army officer and became the black sheep of the family' (as you do),
John McSorley who married an Alice McQuade,
and Catherine McSorley who married Thomas McGrath.
It would be incredible if the descendants of the two that went to America (or the brothers in Tasmania) made contact with us!!
