    Hello, my name is Norah Maynard. I am looking for information about my grandmother’s family. She was born in Brackloon, Dalgan in 1899. Her name was Honor (Norah) Davin, Her parents were Sarah Casey and Pat Davin. She had a sister Mary, and brothers John, Michael, and Patrick. My grandmother emmigrated to Quebec and I Believe Michael and Mary went to Massachusetts in the U.S. From various resources, I see that there are Davins still living in the area. I will be visiting the area next year and would like to make contact with someone who is knowledgeable about the Davin or Casey family histories. Thank you so much. I love this website! Norah
