I'm interested in your ancestors' Leitrim to Elizabethtown migration. When did they come, and where in Elizabethtown did they settle? An extended group of family and friends began emigrating in the early 1820s from Mohill Parish, Co Leitrim, to Elizabethtown where they settled near Lyn. In this group were McGuire, Harper, Grogan, Hunt and Kilroy/Gilroy.
