Looking for info on Monica Donahue (or variation of sp) b 1800 Ireland, married Peter Morris (probably in Ireland). My notes said a census listsa Monica Morris (daughter)  b. 1851 came to USA in 1861 at age 10. Can only find Monica Donahue Morris and Peter Morris in one place: The 1880 census; in Jenkins Twp. Luzerne County, PA... living with another daughter, Julia Morris Moylan.  History of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania on Moylans say they came from Galway.  I am wondering where Monica Donahue is from in Ireland - Galway, too?  The younger Monica (first  daughter's) obituary lists 3 sisters:  Mrs. Shaughnessy, Mrs. P Moylan of Port Griffith and Mrs. Donnelly of New York, and one brother (no name) in Texas.   Trying to find any info on Monica Donahue as mentioned in the first sentence; from Ireland; I suspect Galway; with the above family.  Any info or leads at all is appreciated.  Thank you for any help.

Than you for that info. I will share this with my cousin, who is a direct descendent of Monica (Donahue) Morris.  The family has few details about this area of the tree.  I believe this is new news.
