I may have found parish and townland for gr-gr-grandfather John F.Farrell b. abt 1810 in Meath m 1) Ellen Timon 2) Hannah Grace. d. Meath.
Children of Ellen & John F. Farrell: Ellen Farrell b 1843 Meath d 1911 Somerville, Mass. Patrick b. ?, emigr. to Australia d. ?, Michael b. 27 Aug 1830 Meath, m. Roseanne Cox emigr. to USA in 1848 d. 17 May 1896 Newton Mass., USA.
John F. Farrell, b. 2 Apr 1836, m. Marcella Melia, emigr. to US in 1861, d. Newton, Mass. 4 July 1900.
Bernard Farrell, b. 17 Mar 1842 Meath, m. Elizabeth Duffy, emigr. to US in 1867, d. Newton, Mass. 17 Apr 1890, 4 children of Bernard and Elizabeth b. Meath: Ellen 1861, John 1862, Patrick b. 11 Mar 1865 in Summerhill, Meath(died in infancy per original fam. 1927 genealogy)and Christopher b. 15 Feb 1866 in Summerhill, Meath. (foundinLDS). No death record found for Patrick, but he was not on the ship Propontis with mother and siblings when it arrived in Boston, 14 Nov 1867. No Farrells found in Summerhill in Griffiths search. In surrounding townlands (in Moy) I found a Michael Farrell, an Owen Timon,and a Daniel Mealiew (Melia). Marcella Melia's father was a Daniel Melia.
There were 2 other Daniel Mealiews in nearby townlands.

Does anyone have any information on any of these families found in Moy? I'm now trying to determine whether Moy is the townland of my ancestral origins.
