That's a first! I've always been told the name is Irish. However, I've read here that some say English. But this is the first I've heard German. How do you figure? Has it been changed from some German name to sound Irish?

Just curious, Kathy

I currently live in Roswell. I just moved there a year ago. Until then I lived North of Alpharetta on my grandparents farm. They split the land between their eight kids.
Where do you live?
Who are some of the people in your family. I would like to find out how we are related because we must be somehow.
