DID YOUR PETER BRADY BORN IN GEORGETOWN HAVE ANY RELATIVES LIVING THERE THEN
OR IN YEARS TO FOLLOW? ALL MY INFORMATION ON OUR BRADY LINE COMES FROM
FAMILY STILL LIVING IN iRELAND. UNFORTANATLY MOST OF THE STORIES ARE WORD OF
MOUTH AND THE IRISH AREN'T VERY INTERESTED IN FAMILY HISTORY. UNLIKE US IRISH
AMERICANS.
BACH IN THE MID 1800'S AT LEAST 2 BROTHERS CAME TO THE WEST. ONE A BACHALOR
DIED IN 1903 IN YERRINGTON NEVADA. THE OTHER RETURNED HOME TO MOUNTNUGENT
IRELAND NERA OLDCASTLE MEATH BORDER. MOST OF THE FAMILY NEVER NEW ANYTHING ABOUT
THE AMERICAN CONNECTION. WHEN I TRACED IT AND FOUND IT A FEW FAMILY MEMBERS
WOULD SAY THINGS LIKE "NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT SOMEONE DID GO OUT TO
AMERICA..."
PETER BRADY IS A FAMILY NAME . ONE BEING A PRIEST BURIED IN THE MOYLAGH
CEMETARY IN MOUNTNUGENT. ACTUALLY HE WAS BURIED UNDER THE ALTER IN THE CHURCH I
BELIEVE A NEPHEW PETER , THAT WAS BEING RAISED BY THE UNCL/PRIEST, WAS BURIED
THERE ALSO.
ANOTHER RELATIVE MENTIONED A POSSIBLE CHILD OF THE MAN THAT RETURNED TO
IRELAND BEING BORN IN GEORGTON . IT WAS ALSO BELIEVED THAT VISITS WERE MADE TO
RELATIVES IN EITHER GEORGETON CA. OR WE THOUGHT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN GENOA NEVADA.
THAT THOUGHT WAS BECAUSE SUPPOSEDLY THEY VISITED MORMANS . MY BRADYS ARE
ROMAN CATHOLICS WITH MANY PRIESTS AND NUNS IN THE FAMILY. WE DON'T KNOW OF ANY
MORMAN CONNECTION. BUT IT'S A POSSIBILITY.

DOES ANY OF THIS RING A BELL!
AS WITH ALL OF US BRADY'S IT'S A LOT OF WORK TO TRY TO TRACE THE FAMILY
TREE BUT SO REWARDING WHEN WE FINALLY GET ON THAT NEW BRANCH

FAMILY NAMES- HUGH - EDWARD - PETER- PHIL - CHARLES -JOHN
