Your message is in the United States General board.

Did any of them immigrate to the United States?

yes timothy fitzgearld came over to ireland sometime after 1901, i did find a timothy fitzgearld on the 1920 us census that maybe the man im looking for, but i have put the request on the general board so that it reaches more people

the dawsons & tobins, some of the family emigrated i think to the boston area, but again ive no concrete proof, that is why i gave details of the relates on the irish side.

One method you could try: Find the obituaries of as many ancestors/relatives you can in Ireland. Those might list the names and locations of survivors in the US.

I'm not very familiar with UK newspapers, but I did find a couple of sites:

I don't have access to the Irish newspapers at You could try another message at the Ireland board:

You could also try posting at the Newspapers in Ireland board to find out what's available online:

Given their common names, however, you'll need to find specific info on where and when they passed away in order to get meaningful results.
