Byrne Co. Donegal, Ireland to Cuero, TX

I am looking for information on three Byrne brothers that immigrated from the townland of Malinbeg in the Parish of Glencolumbkille in southwest Donegal to Cuero, TX in the early 1890s.

The 1900 Cuero census shows Mike Byrne living with his brother, Barnie (Barney) Byrne. Barnie was married to a Frances and died before 1910. Frances is listed as a widow in the 1910 census with one child, Barney at age 9.

Based upon the 1910, 1920 and 1930 Cuero census, Mike married a Louisa and had one child, Mike Jr. It appears that Louisa died 19 Nov 1959 in De Witt Co. I have been unable to find when Mike Sr. died and find a record of his death certificate. I would like to see if his parents are listed on the death certificate.

In 1910, a niece and nephew of Mike Byrne, Ellen and Michael McGinley passed through Ellis Island with their final destination listed as uncle Michael Byrne in Cuero. Ellen and Michael McGinley were listed as being from Malinbeg, Glencolumbkille, Co. Donegal, Ireland.

Also in the 1900 Cuero census is the family of John J. Byrne and Annie (?). John is likely a brother of Barney and Mike. This family moved to Tarrant County.

All three individuals were in the grocery business.

Any information confirming the relationship of the three brothers and Mike Byrne’s death certificate would be appreciated.
