Reply To: Gorman/O'Gorman of Ballyduff, Thomastown, Kilkenny


I have done exhaustive research. That is how I found the entries in the U.S. census and I have checked and rechecked the entries in Roots and have checked the registers in the NLI.  The people in the U.S. census are described as blacksmiths.  I think the family identified strongly with that skill.  I will recheck everything I have and put it in a structured form.  I am currently writing my family history – albeit from a distance – so that future generations can know what went before.  I had thought the Gorman side was not as interesting as my mother’s side but your findings challenge that.  Perhaps through this forum we can join the dots and bring history alive.
