Meet my paternal ggg grandparents, John and Maryanne. John was born in County Sligo, Ireland in 1809 and Maryanne was born in Dublin in 1817. Don’t they look like a happy couple? I would be too if I had eleven children and did hard labor all day working on the farm.

They emmigrated from Ireland together, along with their respective families, to the Ontario, Canada area. John, Maryanne and their children then moved to Nebraska by 1880. Census images are available online and makes tracking your relatives easy (1790-1930). They both died before 1900 and most of the family still lives in Nebraska.
