Family Ancestral Homeland

Peter Mullen - Son of Co. Galway

By Frederick Kramer

Sadly, I know very little of the life of my GGG Grandfather other than his direct line to me.

His daughter Mary Mullen (Sept 1855 – 27 Feb 1932) and her husband Martin C Walsh (Aug 1851 – 19 Aug 1922) were both born in Co. Galway.  According to family stories, the left Ireland before 1880 and sailed for the US.  They were married in the US State of Colorado on 14 Sep 1881.

All three eternally reside at Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery, just outside of Denver, Colorado, USA

A cousin has traced their roots back to Oughterard, Co Galway and believes their old home to be the Mullen Farm in that township.

I am looking for any Mullen decendents willing to confirm this with DNA analysis.
