Had to respond to your mention of a Richard Garland. A Richard Garland, born in 1840 in Newtown Hamilton, Co. Armagh, later emigrated to Lexington, Kentucky. Married Catherine Houlihan, became a city councilor in Lexington. Some McElroy cousins of his, as well as some McKees, also from the same area of Newton-Hamilton, and a brother, Peter, both preceded and followed him to Lexington. I am interested in knowing his parents' names, to help in tracing the McElroy and McKee connection. with the Garlands.
