It is somewhat difficult the further you go back in time, due to poor records-I think?

My great,great grandfather (Donal Smith)(spouse-margret welsh smith) came from county Cavan to (montana)USA in 1878. He died in 1899 at 61 years old. He was a prospector and a rancher. I don't know about the family in Ireland but have started to research. Did your relative have any brothers? They are around the same age and my great great grandfather named one of his sons Patrick.
