Truly A Little Bit Irish...

Although on St Patrick's Day everyone is Irish,
I can claim my Irish DNA from my
Great Great Grandparents William and Maggie.
William Dorsey came to America from Ireland
with his parents and brother in 1845
when he was one year old.
Maggie Harper was born in 1850
and came America in 1860.
Both families settled in Baltimore, MD.
Maggie and William were married in 1869
 and had 7 children. 

 Photo is of their son, my great grandfather,
 William C Dorsey in 1906.


  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day! My great grandparents, on my mother's side of the family, are from Castlecomer, Kilkenny, Ireland. :)

  2. What a great old picture. My grandmother Owen came straightway from Ireland, too. Love my Irish heritage. xo Diana

  3. How wonderful it is for you to have that wonderful old picture.

  4. Cool picture of your great grandfather. He must have been in a parade.
