  1. Hi Trevor. I’m writing to introduce myself. My great-great grandmother was Frances “Fanny” Young, who came out from County Cavan on the Taipoo Saib. Feel free to let me know if you want any details about what happened to her. Regards, Rebecca

    • Thankyou kindly Rebecca. I’ve just added something for Frances. You may have seen this already? best wishes. Maybe we can expand on her story a bit later. Did you notice my recent note at the end of blog number 24, answering a request for help in determining which workhouse an ancestor from Cavan may have come from. That one may have been in Granard workhouse in Longford, even tho she was born in Cavan. regards
