Have already joined the Henry Clan; I'm looking for more rare family names, now October 09, 2012 11:32 PM

By : Patricia Lynne

On my maternal side, I'm also Irish:
- my Mom's maternal g-grandfather's surname was Clingan, from the Townland of Relessy, near Clogher (we just found their old home site from the early 1800's a few weeks ago!);
- her paternal grandfather was a Hobson, a weaver from Dublin, then Lurgan;
- and her paternal grandmother was a Wray, from North Antrim, who attended university in Derry (and *her* mother was a Holmes).
Any info/family out there?
