Comments: My great grandmother was Ellen Bookey from Lawrencetown (born approx.1886 but not sure if she was born in Lawrencetown). She married Patrick Lyons in 1912 who came from the same area (we believe) although they got married in Dublin.  Does anyone have any other information about the Bookeys? Are there any still in the area who might be relations?  It's not the most common of names! Grateful for any information. Thanks Gina xx

Comments: Hello,
My grandfather was born in Lawrencetown on 7 May 1896. He always said he was from Ballinasloe, but he got a copy of his birth certificate in 1959 and it listed the district of Lawrencetown, the town of Ballinasloe and place of birth Ballymana. He was one of eight children born to James and Bridget (Guinan?) Turley. His brothers and sisters names were changed at some point by the oldest girl, but originally they were May, Bridget, Delia, Margaret, Patrick, Jim and Jack and my grandfather Michael. My grandfather became Francis John and was called Frank. I think one of the boys became Joe. My granddad left Ireland for New York City (we think when he was about 18 or so....around 1905?) and married a girl in NY from Clonmell, Co. Tipperary. My father was born in the US in 1931.
Sorry for the long post. I love this great community site. It makes me want to visit! I have an 8 year old son named Jack, and would love to show him where his great-granddad is from.
Are there any Turley's left in town?? I would love to say hi to any remaining Turley's or anyone who may have known of the children or grandchildren of the family.
Thanks to all!!
