This Shugrue family lived near the Catholic Church in Annascaul and Michael died late 1870's it is believed but we could not find a record of this. They may have moved prior to his death. Children one by one and widow Bridget came to USA and settled Holyoke, Mass.
The other set of Sugrue's were James Sugrue son of James and Mary Flynn. James married to Catherine Flaherty in Castlegregory Ire. Feb. 5, 1856; the sponsors were John Flaherty and James Sugrue.
It is believed that Catherine Flaherty Sugrue died in Ireland. In the late 1890's the widower James and children came to the USA and also settled in Holyoke, Mass. to work in the mills.
