Looking for my maternal great great grandparents - John Kerwin and Mary Ann McGerr - spellings may vary, but I've been told there were a number of children of which my great grandmother, Mary Frances (Minnie), was one. However, we've also been told there was some kind of falling out, possibly over religion, and she was turned away from the family, possibly even sent to one of the "laundries." It was so bad when one of her brothers moved to Canada years later he wouldn't even make contact with her. I'm hoping enough time has passed and I can connect my family (especially my niece who grew up loving her Irish heritage) with that side of the family.
