Ok..... you have a ancestry of a farrell marrying a mcgiff......

so do I.....Patrick Farrell marrying a Mary McGiff....

It is entirely possible.... that Patrick Farrell(that married Mary Mcgiff in my family tree.....from Clogher and Rinn, Parish of Killashee County Longford) and your Catherine Farrell were brother and sister.....

It is also entirely plausible that they Patrick and Catherine married....John McGiff and Mary Mcgiff were brothers and sister and that they inturn married the Farrell brother and sisiter htatlived next door in Clogher and Rinn..... Parish of Killashee County of Longford.....

Patrick and Mary had Patrick Farrell b 1798 and perhaps John Farrell b 1795 and they would be cousins to your
Bridget McGiff.....

Ok that is something to chew on.....

your Mcgiffs went to Brooklyn.....do you know how they got there.....

My Farrells went to Canada and then down thru New York to Dushore PA.....

Ultimately we had Farrells that went to Brooklyn... as my Grandfather
Howard signed up for WWI in Brooklyn although he was from upstate..Johnson City, New York....

and on and on...

thoughts


thanks for your time
