Looking for Quinn family ancestry
I have found a few cousins in Ireland, but am looking for more family. We cannot seem to locate exactly how we are all related, due to the fact we cannot identify all of my great grandfather's siblings. One thing I do know (from talking to family in Donegal), if you are related to a Quinn family that originated from southwestern Donegal, especially in Stranass, Rosilly Bar, Rafoarty, Ballintra, Laghey, chances are you are related to me.

My great grandfather's name was James Quinn, born 1828 in Ballintra. We are ALMOST positive that his father was John Quinn and his mother was Bridget Murphy. We also are pretty sure that James had brothers named Donal and Patrick, and probably a sister named Catherine. There were more siblings, but we cannot find them.

Please, if someone sees this and knows of any Quinn family currently living in Southwestern Donegal, please email me. As I said, I talk to a couple of cousins now, but would love to find more family. If nothing else, I would love to find more ancestry information. Thank you for your time. Patty Quinn
