    Well Thanksgiving in Canada is not as big as USA but fun anyway when we get to spend it family or friends. Just over Halloween and in our neck of the woods is lovely and quiet mostly old farts like ourselves but get to see lots of grandkids photos over the net. My Dublin pal Mary had about 20kids come by in Scarborough Ont and a Dublin cuz told me no one came by there place and another friend in Dublin said it was like Bombs going over her home most of the night.
    Lots of Rain this last week and too cold yet but after that long hot humid summer I don’t mind. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving Jo and keep up the good work Martin with all the stories of Cabra.

    Stew

    Martha Eastwood came to mind
    As I stirred my pot of stew
    Stew houses and soup kitchens
    Came into my view
    Autumn leaves falling along
    The quarry road
    A toddlers school bag seemed
    Like a heavy load.
    Four generations still walk those roads
    Maybe even five
    Humble beginnings sustain us deep inside.
    ……………………………………………………………….

    Off now to have some comfort food
    A decent Dublin stew.
    Greetings to one n all from the other wild west.

    Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving Rita. Snow on the mountains here today. My hubby and some of our brood enjoying seeing family in Dublin. Only few days but still glad 2 of our grandchildren can meet family. Their first time.
    I’ll have to try and go with them next time. I couldn’t make it this time.

    Hello Willie Bev and family.
    Hope Lily n grace are keeping you on your toes

    Hello Martin,
    Thanks for updates too.

    Cheerio all.
    From an auld witch out in the other wild west.
    Happy Halloween everyone.

    Thanks Rita ,
    I did try that but it had lots of mumbo jumbo too.
    Thanks. Some of our family are in Dublin to see family.
    I didn’t make it this time.
    Maybe in spring ill try to get over. Would love to get to see my sister’s in UK too.

    Hello Tony G. Thanks for update. I forgot to tell you Stephen was huge into photography. His all time passion.
    His dad told us he donated his eyes. It touches us all deeply
    That someone else will see through his eyes. I’m lost for words.
    Perhaps you may find some words to share.
    You are very gifted that way.

    Hello to all
    Thinking of everyone

    Kindest regards,
    Jo.

    Moffat.

    Thanks I’ll email a pic

    Thanks Martin,
    Sure is interesting that you found her photo that sure is a bonus , one time I was lead to believe a GGGrandfather Daniel O’Malley was sent to Oz with 2 brothers but it was the wrong Daniel but made a friend there who was trying to find her hubby’s O’Malley line we were both very disappointed that there was no connection but it sure was a great Story.

    Hi from Canada Jo,
    Yes I noticed that sometimes you can only see a few posts 3 at the moment which is a shame as I don’t go on it too much and love to read stuff that I may have missed, thought I must be pressing the wrong buttons, maybe Martin can figure it out.
    Always busy with the Ancestor searching keeps me out of trouble ha ha. Hope Greg has some luck at finding his I work on so many trees from both sides of our clan that I make my self dizzy at times, my eldest done his DNA on Ancestry he is busy with a young family so I set up his tree ,he has has some interesting matches even from the good O’Malley Cabra cousins, but nothing that I don’t know I am still hitting the brick wall on my Grandfather O’Malley side, sure would love to see a photo of him as died way before I was born.
    Happy Halloween to all , I even seen Christmas hitting the stores over here, Anyway weather not too bad up here after a very Hot & Humid Summer, leaves are just starting to change colour, was at a great wedding a few wks back and a crowd from Ireland/Uk over so it made for a great time meeting folks from the Homeland.
    Slan for now
    Rita O’Malley McMahon
    (Hello Rita, my Granny Burke from Broombridge spoke very little about her mother and we never knew what she looked like. In recent times I found her photograph, on her Prison Record. She had served 5 years for her part in a murder/manslaughter here in Dublin. Her sister served 7 years for the same offence. I was however delighted at finding her photo and that of her sister as well. So, you never know…’ MC)

    Hello Rita,
    Lots of fun when doing family tree.
    Branches going in every direction. Think I’ll be exploring
    Scandinavia next.
    Hope all are well up there in Canada.
    I have a lot of trouble with this site lately.
    Not sure what else makes it on here.
    It only shows me one post at a time .
    It use to show a few. Sometimes 2.
    Anyway I’m sure it’s all out there in the cloud.
    Happy Halloween to one and all. Oct just around the corner.
    Greetings from USA.
    Jo.

    Also I just came across Cabragh as a townland in Castleknock in 1901 Census

  14. Rita McMahonon 26 Sep 2018 at 2:19 am

    Hi Martin,
    You know how much I love the subject of Ancestors, just sent email re Arrell in Cabragh Co. Tyrone, lots of sites Greg may get some hints about his family: Ancestry, irishgenealogy.ie, http://www.irelandxo.com
    Best of luck in your searching Greg
    Rita
