Something AMAZING happened today. I've been tracing my Mooney Family ancestry and found a link in England. The shock? I discovered my great-great grandparents, from Oldham, Lancashire, England, UK, (both born in 1844): Joseph Mooney and his one-day wife, Ann.
These were the last of my line to live in England (yes, I know, "Mooney" is Irish, but I believe their ancestors came across the Irish Sea). Their son, my great-grandfather, came "across the pond". I hid many private links to my life in "The Pearls of the Stone Man", but this was NOT planned. Joseph and Ann(e) - two of my main characters!
I am stunned. Absolutely amazed.
