I'm not sure why I was referred to this board, but here goes.
My Great Grandfater emmigrated from Ireland to the US in 1865. His obit said he was from Westmeath, Co. Cork. I of course know there is no such place.
His brother Peter came with him I believe.
Their parents were Patrick Horan and Ellen Claffey.
I can't find any references to Horans on the web except for the one family from Baltimore, MD.
