I love to walk through an old cemetery. This one is fairly recent. It's interesting that "Main Street" is also on it. I can't remember a head stone with someone's address on it, too. Also interesting is that infant children mentioned doesn't have dates.

If the aunt died in '76, why didn't you ever know her??

Researching family history is fascinating isn't it?

Oh yes Gattina... My maternal
grandparents and a maternal aunt and uncle.

Ah that;s because there are a lot of O'Sullivans in Millstreet willthink! My mother's family was also known as "Sals" as opposed to the neighbours who were also O'Sullivans but known as Cooleys... Don't ask me why

Ah LB that was the only one of my grandparentss who was still alive when I was born.


It is fascinating Cherie. I must spend more time on my family

It's so humbling to think that so many people I never knew were needed to create someone as awesome as me.
