Hello from Philadelphia!
Hi! My name is Denise Foley and I'm descended from David Foley and Ellen Roche of Newfoundland. I'm here to trace my Foleys back as far as I can, hopefully to Ireland. David was born in Newfoundland in 1824, so I'm aware this won't be easy.

New to board, researching surname Homer
Hello! I'm new to this board, live in the Seattle area.

I'm researching the last name Homer. My grandpa was Claude Mutford Homer, his brother was Charles Homer. Their parents were Stephen James Homer (1878-1952) and Edith Ann Mutford (1877-1950).

From what I can tell, Stephen's brother was Hayward Homer, and died young in Victoria BC, no kids.

I "think" their parents were Henry Thomas Homer b 1842 and Susanna Noel. But, I have no info.

After having my DNA tested and finding relatives I learned that my grandfather was born in Ship...
