Hello everyone, this isnt really a story, but an attempt to find my long lost relatives. My father was born in the State of Michigan November 16th 1937, his birth name given is: William Wesley Irwin and me moved to Montreal or Toronto when he was about 17-18, which would have been in 1954-1955. I am really hoping to find out if I have relatives that are still alive, and if they can give me information as to the whereabouts of my grandparents resting place. Thank you for your time and if you know anything dont hesitate to leave me a message or an email @ [contact link] Sincerely, Rachel Irwin

My family is from Sligo Ireland. Thomas Elmer Irwin was born in 1819 in Sligo, Ballymote, Ireland. He came to Bruce, Onterio Canada before 1866. His wife, Margaret Hargin, was born in 1848 in Bruce, Onterio Canada. They married in 1866 in Bruce, Onterio. I know they had their 2nd child, Susan, in 1867, in Warren County Illinois. They came across America in a covered wagon and settled in Gravity, Iowa about 1872. They had a son who must have died,at about age 6 who was the oldest as I can not find him in later census records. The other children of this marriage were , Ida, George, William, Jane and Robert (My great grandfather). Most of the family is buried in Gravity, Iowa. On January 16,1900, Robert married Iva Belle Richardson. Benjamin Franklin Richardson was born in 1839 in Muscatine, Iowa. His family moved to Sigourney, Iowa when he was a child. He married Delilah (Lilah) Reynolds in the 1860's. They had four daughters, Mary, Catherine, Effie and Ida (DOB December 27, 1879). They moved to Gravity, Iowa before 1900. Robert and Iva had six children. Evert, July 12,1900-January 12, 1901. Buried at Blue Ridge Cemetery, Gravity, Iowa. Margurite Lila, January 17,1906-March 15,2003. Buried at Crown Hill Cemetery, Wheatridge,Colorado. Cecil Elmer, 1908-1987 Buried in Midland, Texas. Nell 1910-? (Lived in Oregon) Dean Franklin November 1, 1912-September 28,1999.

Hello everyone.My name is Joanne Irwin.My 9 other brothers and sisters would love to know who we are.My father was born in Belfast Ireland 1904 or 1905 to a Mary Compton.As a baby or young child he was sent to Canada with or without his mother or father.He only found out his birthday when he was 60 and it was december 25th we believe although he received 2 birth certificates,We know he probably grew up in an orphanage and ran away when he was between 10 and 15.If anyone has or knows anyone who would know anything we would love to hear from you.I have been on so many sites but I have to keep paying and I can't keep doing that.Thank you, Joanne Irwin
