Dennis Ryan

My great grandmother was born in Annaholty/Birdhill Co. Tipp. The family later moved to Castle Connell, Co. Limerick, Ireland. When they came to the U.S. they went to Waureegan Conn. and then to NewBedford, MA. A Dennis Ryan was mentioned in some old letters my mother had. Not sure where those letters are since she passed away. There may have been a connection. My great grandmother was Margaret Quinlan. She came over here with her parents Thomas and Peggy(Egan)Quinlan. Her brother Matthew Quinlan stayed in New Bedford and the rest of the family moved to Berkely, Cumberland, R.I.
