Seeking contact with descendants of a Sullivan/McCarthy line who left the area of Tramore, Co. Waterford, Ireland for Australia in the mid-late 1800's.
I am an American descendant of a Sullivan and McCarthy family line from the Tramore area that came to America during that period. My grandfather, James Sullivan (1880-1949), and his siblings born to Timothy Sullivan and Mary McCarthy, were in America by 1899. He commented to his children in the 1930's that he had no desire to go back to Tramore because all of his relatives there had either died or gone to Australia.
Keywords that may prompt a link between my Sullivan/McCarthy line to those in Australia doing similar research: Holy Cross Church in Tramore where our common ancestors were baptized, worshiped and buried; and the townlands of Knockenduff and Carrivagantry, located just outside Tramore where my earliest Sullivans and McCarthys lived as tenants indentured as farm laborers to the landlord.
Look forward to a reply, Jim Lynch USA
