Hi Miriam:

I was excited to see your posting. We are 2nd cousins by my reckoning, as we share the same g-grandparents, John Roycroft b. abt. 1832 and Anne Willis b. Aug. 23, 1839.

My grandmother, Elizabeth Anne Roycroft, daughter of John and Anne, was also born at Dreenlomane (in 1879). Your grandfather Joseph was her older brother. I assume he was born at Dreenlomane as well? Your uncle Robs and aunt Hester are good friends with my mom.

I am very sorry to hear about your father. It's always hard when we lose our own.

I would love to compare notes with you. Do you have any information at all about our g-grandfather John Roycroft and his parents? I have had some contact with Roberta, and she believed John was born at Knockeens, near Dunmanus. Is that your understanding as well?

John's father was Joseph Roycroft, but I have no other info such as Joseph's wife, birth/death dates, townland, etc.

Hope to hear from you.

Leigh Moore
