Please reply to this posting because it has my new email address. Thanks.
I am researching my ggrandfather James who immigrated from N. Ireland to Mass. in 1896. He arrived through Ellis Island and I noted on the shipping manifest that his intended destination was Pittsburgh. I do know that we have relatives in the Pittsburgh area, the exact connection is unknown at present. I am still gathering information from Ireland regarding James, but do know that his father was David and his grandfather was George. Through family stories we know that there are connections to Scotland. Also, there is a story that maybe 100 years ago, I believe in the states, there was a drowning tragedy, where several Cantley's were lost. Does any of this information connect with your family? In my research name changes back and forth from Cantley to Kentley. Appreciate any help. Looking forward to your reply.
