Our Foley's come from County Wexford, Ireland. Martin Gerald Foley, my grandfather, was born in the Roman Catholic Parish of Marshallstown, Co. Wexford on May 24, 1884. His parents were Patrick Foley and Anne Byrne Foley. His Godparents were Philip Foley and Mary Bryne.

It seems that Philip Foley and possibly a sister emigrated to America in 1888. Philip Foley turns up again in the 1910 Federal Census in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, California. His nephew, Michael Joseph Foley,born Feb 1890, had just arrived from Ireland and was boarding with Philip Foley. My grandfather Martin and Michael Foley were brothers. Michael Joseph Foley married Henrietta Jasperson.

Martin Gerald Foley married Anne (Annie) Cummins in San Francisco CA. Her brother was John J. Cummins who had come over from Oranmore, Galway, Ireland in 1907. Both Annie and Martin (a San Francisco policeman) died in 1934. They left one son, Martin Joseph Foley, my father, who was born in 1925.

My story began four months ago when i began tracing my family grandad William Harry was the reason i began my research he died when i was seven and i never got the chance to ask him about his past.I have traced back to my grandads father Harold Foley who had eight children he was a branch manager for allied news papers.Harolds father was William John Foley born in 1868
He married elizabeth ellen in 1887 they had eight children sadly four of the childern died due to illness.The children who survived were Mary.Ada.Lily and Harold .
I traced my great great grandads grave a few months ago due to old age the stone had gone and there was just a space of grass next to a grave.I lay a red rose on the grass and shed a tear for the people who were the reason i stand here today .

Last week my grandads sister sent me some photographs about ninty years old of Williams children and his wife Elizabeth and there to my shock was a girl Mary Foley staring at me whose face looked exactly like mine.

Williams daughter maragret foley died in 1902 age 5 of menigeists.She is buried in hownslow cemetry .William also served in world war one from 1915-1918 his family moved back home to cheshire during the ww1 where they lived for the rest of their lives .William recieved 2 medals for ww1 and was discharged in march 1918 due to his health .On Williams army card it says he was also in the army band called the big drum .Sadley William died in 1927 his son Harold was with him when he died ,at least he wasnt alone .I wanted to pay respect for this brave man who survived two wars and put his life at risk for his country .To me he is a hero
and i will continue to pass on his storey through our generations so he will live on and never be forgotten.
