Minges family of Flemlingen and Burrweiler, Rhineland Pfalz, Germany

Looking for anyone who has genealogical information on the Minges family of Germany. I have a great great grandmother Applonia Minges of Flemlingen who gave birth out of wedlock to my great grandfather, Simon, in Dernbach in 1859. The birth father's name may have been Masser. Four year later she married Michael Johann of Dernbach, thus legitimizing my great grandfather. The family sometime after 1864 moved to her home village of Flemlingen.

These Minges ancestors still have a well-known vineyard and winery in Burrweiler, Rhineland Pfalz, Germany.

Looking for Gilroy from Ireland, don't know county, emigrating to US

My g-g-grandmother, Anne Gilroy, daughter of Patrick and Mary Jennings Gilroy, b. 1850 in Ireland. Married John Oakley in Ireland or England, had son David in 1869 in Englad, family said to US same year. settled in Scranton, PA. Had four more daughters, MaryELlen,Beatrice, Kate and Anna. Husband naturalized in 1878. Died 1925, buried in Catholice cemetery in Lackawanna Co., PA.

Don't know if she had siblings come over. Would love to find out which county she was from, and where she and John Oakley were married.

Looking for McGrath from Galway city, Galway, Ireland, emigrated to Pennsylvania

My g-g-grandfather Andrew McGrath was born 1818 died 1884 in Rahoon Parish, Galway city, Galway. His widow, Judith Hackett McGrath, left at some point to go live in Old Forge, Lackawanna Co., PA (near Scranton-Wilkes Barre) and shows up in the 1900 US federal census. Son Michael (my g-grandfather, daughters Catherine and Norah, and possibly another daughter, Delia, emigrated to the US. Michael and Catherine stayed in the Scranton area, Norah wound up in Greenwich, Conn. Would like to know if anyone here has McGraths from Salthill, Rahoon Parish, Galway in their family tree.


Looking for Oakley from Ireland or UK in Scranton, PA, after 1870

John Oakley m. Anne Gilroy of Ireland, son David born in England in 1869, shortly thereafter family sailed from England to US and settled in Scranton. Four more children born in US, all girls: Mary Ellen (my ggrandmother), Beatrice, Anna and Kate.

I have zero information on this John Oakley. He shows up on MaryEllen's death certificate as her father, but no country of birth is listed. I have no DOB or death for him. He may have been naturalized in 1878. He doesn't show up on any censuses in the US. Don't know where he worked but most likely he was a coal miner.

I would love to know if he was born in Ireland or England, and where he married Anne Gilroy (her mother's maiden name was Jennings).
