Hi I am looking for any information about James Foy born c1873 County Mayo. His father was Patrick Foy and Bridget Foy (i believe her maiden name was Foy but can't be sure). They were also born county Mayo. I have found 1901 census for a james Foy but can't be sure they are the same. Address is in Bohola and mother and father are Patrick and Bridget. Also the siblings listed on the census have the same names as James children born in Rotherham, England. He came over to England some time between 1901 and 1906 as he married Hannah Hull in 1906 Wakefield, England.
does any of this ring a bell with anyone?

My Foy family came from County Mayo Ireland. From the Swinford area. Matthew Edward Foy b. 1872 d. 1954 and his wife Anna Forkan from Kiltimagh, Mayo b. 1876 d. 1937.They settled in Phila. PA. Matthew had a sister in Coatesville PA Kate Cochlin. My Father said we had Van Hornes in the family but I have not made the connection yet. I think one had a TV shop on 26th St and New Jersey Ave in North wildwood

I live outside of Boston, MA. My mother's grandfather was Robert Foy, born on April 7, 1849 In Ireland, the son of Michael Foy. He married Mary MacEvoy and they had two children together Michael & Patrick. Later he married Annie (O) Callaghan and had two sons, Robert & Charles, near Dalkey, Ireland. They came to America 1882 to Quincy, MA. Other children were John, Anna Marie Sarah & James. He died on April 11, 1910, in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, at the age of 61. His wife died in 1911.

“I am looking for descendants of William Foy, son of Peter Foy. William Foy lived in Franklin County, Pennsylvania in 1800. In 1812, William attempted to purchased land in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, at an unpaid tax sale. This sale was not completed, as the court house had made an error and the owner had paid the taxes. After that I have been unable to find William in the census.”
