I am wondering if they were victims of the famine, as they seem to have vanished. Only Mgt Richardson of the 1841 age was the one in Armagh.
How does one find any trace of famine victims?
More importantly, WHY did the survivors never speak of the famine to their children?!? My own grandparents emigrated to USA around 1897. Never a word of the famine among all the offspring, my cousins!
Is there any explanation for this?
