I am looking for descendants of John McManus and Bridget Duignan McManus of Greaghnaleva More in Co. Roscommon. My grandmother was Mary Helen or Ellen McManus born in 1889. She had a brother Patrick born in 1885. I am looking for his children andor grandchildren. I think all of his siblings went to the U.S.


I am the ancestor of Silas B. McManus better known as the Hoosier Poet and Indiana State senator. Am looking for ancestors.
