♥ Ireland ♥

     rolling green hills, and friendly people...
     the Blarney Stone and four leaf clovers...

     It has always been my dream to travel to the land of my ancestors.

     Six year old Emily Sheldon and her family arrived in the United States in the mid- 1800's and settled in New York.  I'm not sure what town the Sheldons lived in but when she married Patrick Devine, she and her husband resided in Stuyvesant Falls, NY which is in Columbia county.  Patrick was also from Ireland but I have no idea when he sailed to this new country.
     I can't visit the towns of my 3rd great-grandparents until I found out where exactly in Ireland they lived.
     I wish I were lucky to meet a leprechaun to assist me in my search.
