I've traced my Mom's family back to my great-great-grandfather, John McGreevy, who was born in 1821 in NY. He was married to Elizabeth Hyett (1826 - 1910) and they had a number of children: Elenora, James, Sarah, Mary, Edward, Alice and Lizzie. Elenora died in childbirth in Ohio when she gave birth to my grandfather. He was raised by his Aunt Sarah McGreevy.
I'm trying to locate John McGreevy's parents. His father (I think his name may be Brian, but I am not sure) married a woman with the last name of Moffat, and he died in 1850. I don't know if they emmigrated from Ireland to NY via Ellis Island or via Canada.
My parents, who are in their 80's would like to go to Ireland this fall to continue the search for my mom's family, but we don't know where in Ireland to look. If anyone has any information on John McGreevy's parents, would you please contact me?
