Surname/tag: dewan, carroll, redmond
Having now spent some time researching the family members indicated in my grandmother's notes, I am immensely impressed by the accuracy of the information about her cousins, who they married, and the names of their children. In every case I have been able to track down sources that match the relatives shown, and in most cases the names and surnames match exactly.
The family belief was that our ancestor James Dwan was descended from a Mike Carroll, who was directly related (a cousin) to other well known Carroll's from Ireland, including Charles Carroll of Carrollton who signed the American Declaration of Independence. However, the details are sketchy and proving impossible to verify due to the lack of archival Irish records for the 1700s and 1800s.
Included also are the the details that my grand-aunt Bridget Mary (Dewan) Giorgi, sister to my grandmother Margaret (Dewan) McGrillen, remembered of her mother's side of the family - the Redmonds from Kilmuckridge, Co. Wexford, Ireland.
