O'Melia family in Sligo
Hello, I am looking for information on the O'Melia family in Sligo. According to my Grandmother, my great grandmother, Bridget(Elizabeth or Bessie)O'Melia was born on December 17-18, 1895 and came from a place in County Sligo called Tubbercurry . On her Ellis Island record in July 1912 she listed "Charlestown" as her place of residence and that her father's name was Thomas. Her Mothers name was Margaret Connelly (Connolly).
She had a brother named Thomas that she didnt want to speak of. Apparently he had come into trouble in Ireland. My grandmother thinks that he was wanted by the Brittish for avoiding being drafted into their army. Apparently she had quite a few siblings, but did not speak of them much. Their names were Martin, John, Thomas, Patrick, Margaret (Peggy).

Any information on any pieces of the family would be appreciated.
