Trying to find info regarding my MGF, William Samuel McGowan who was born 12-28-1880 somewhere in Ireland. His father was Joseph McGowan and his mother was Mary Ann Dycher McGowan. He was reportedly born in Cloydah, near Dublin. He was baptised at the Cloydah Church by the Reverend Tho R. Greene. This was in the Diocese of Seighlin. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated.
