family name change confusion:(

When my family (ggggrandparents and their children) came over from Ireland, their name was possibly McGinty, McInty, Ginty, or Genty. All I know for sure was my gggrandfather had changed the name to Guinty. Of course, you have to take into account census takers who got sloppy, immigration records that were almost illegible, people who just plain didn't know how to spell, etc,etc... total frustration! Anyone have any ideas?

Francis SAUNDERS-late 1600's Married in 1701?

I am looking for info on Francis Saunders, b. around 1660,1670, m. about 1701, had a son named John. I need to know more info. If you have anything, I would appreciate it!

Geneology Book Links

So I found this site called "Geneology Book Links", you can search hundreds of books by surname. Loads of information and you can actually read some of the books online. Just search google with the title. Really great site! I found this book written in 1872 on the Saunders line I am researching. Turns out it's a geneology book written by family members.

GGGrandfather William MANNING

This is the obituary for William Manning, father of Edith Manning:
Peabody Gazette-Herald, Peabody, Kansas, dated Sep. 19, 1895, page 5, col. 4
Obituary; Wm. Manning, one of the early settlers of this vicinity, died at his farm home, southeast of Peabody, on Thursday, the 12th inst., aged 50 years, 27 days. The deceased was born in St. Louis, and lived for many years in southeastern Iowa, from whence he moved here in 1873 and located on the farm. He was prominently and favorably known, and a large number of friends gathered to attend the last sad rites. The funeral was held at the Fairplay Church, Friday afternoon, Rev. J.L. McKay officiating, and the body was interred at the Stone Church Cemetery, in Summit township. The deceased leaves wife and eight children; three boys and five girls, who have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.

GGGrandmother Margaret (BEERE) MANNING

The obituary for Margaret Beere Manning:

Peabody Gazette, Thursday, Feb. 14, 1901, page 5 col. 5
Obituary; Mrs. Margaret Manning was born Sep. 15, 1842 in the city of New York. Removed to Iowa in the year 1846, thence to the state of Kansas, Sep. 4, 1873. She was united in marriage the same year to William Manning. Eight children were born unto them, three sons and five daughters, all of whom survive their father and mother.
Death has visited the family the second time, the father having a a few years ago.
His widow, Margaret Manning, departed this life Feb. 7, 1801, at her home southeast of Peabody, in Butler county, Kansas, at the age of 58 years, 4 months and 22 day. Her death was sudden and a great surprise to the entire community, that dread disease, lagrippe being the cause. There were six children at her bedside when death came: Mrs. Maggie Bentz, Mrs. Jessie Guinty, Esther, Mamie, Edith and Willie.
Edward being in Iowa and Harry at school in Saline, did not arrive until after the mother's death.
The children were all present at the funeral services held at Fairplay M.P. Church, except little Edith who was very sick and not able to be present. One sister and a brother of deceased were also in attendance from Iowa.
Five of the children are members of the Fairplay Church and seven of them are members of the Sabbath school.
How sadly bereft are these dear children of a kind, patient and noble mother. The entire community mourn and sympathize with them. These children will ever revere the memory of a mother's love, who showed us all by her daily example what it is to be noble and good.
A large concourse of sympathizing friends attended the funeral, which was preached in the church from Psalms 39th chapter and 4th verse by Rev. W.H. Manary. Her remains were laid to rest beside those of her husband in Whitewater cemetery. May our Heavenly Father comfort all who mourn.
What is lagrippe?

GINTY's in County Sligo Tithe list

From the County Sligo Tithe Applotment list for Kilmacteige Parish, Co. Sligo, 1824:

Kilmactigue 273 Thomas Mulvand

274 Martin Quinn & son

275 James OHara

276 Michael OHara

277 Anthony McIntire

278 Thomas Finn

279 Edward Evans

280 John Hegarty

281 Patrick Brett

282 Denis Ginty

283 Denis Ginty

284 Patrick Ginty & son

Could this Patrick Ginty & Son be my ggggrandfather and his father? There are a couple of Denis Ginty's there too. Michael Guinty's brother's name was Denis, and Irish families tended to name their children after relatives.
