I am interested in tracing my wife’s Corcoran family in the Lawrencetown, Galway area. Per his U.S. naturalization application, John Corcoran was born 1 July 1825 in Lawrencetown. He emigrated to Boston, Massachusetts, USA in May 1945. I can find no record of any siblings or parents coming with him. Per his Massachusetts Death record (12 Oct 1900) his parents were Hugh Corcoran and Margaret Crosby. John’s son started a very successful family retail store (Corcoran’s!) that stood in Central Square in Cambridge, MA for over 100 years. Can you help connect us to the Corcoran Clan back in Ireland?

I am interested in tracing all the Corcoran branches using Genetic Genealogy. My branch comes from Lorrha, Co Tipperary and Clonfert, Co. Galway. Another branch were Millers and established up to eight mills around Dunmore and Tuam.
