I am looking for my family members...Many came to the US, some stayed behind. My grandmother Lizzie (Elizabeth) is one of the siblings who came and resided in Boston. Some went to PA and some to NJ and NY. Any help at all would be appreciated. The following is their information I have thus far:

I believe Eliza's maiden name is Funston although I am not sure. Christopher and John died in WWI, there is a plaque at St. Anne's Church in Ballyshannon in their remberance.

Any information at all would be appreciated. This information is from the 1901 Census of Ireland. I was able to track down Ellis Island records as well. Now I am trying to find any living Lairds both here and abroad, to make contact with. I'm going to Ballyshannon next month, I hope to find something by then! Thanks to all and no amount of information is too small, I would love to go back as far as possible if anyone can help with that :)
