Hi Ann, My g grandfather Peter Freeman (or Seery in Irish) was born In Castlerea not far from Boyle and French Park. His father, James Freeman married Winifred Rourke. They landed in NYC 1850, settled first in Uxbridge, MA to work in the mills and later in Holyoke, MA, where Peter had enough wealth to donate the land where Sacred Heart Church stands in Holyoke. As far as the Rourke (O'Rourke, Grourke) Winifred is the only one I have. I have a lot of freeman's down to the present day.
