I am searching for information on the family of JAMES “Shaney” POLLARD, born abt. 1820 in Lisnamrock, known as “The Acres,” and his wife, BRIDGET or MARY BRIDGET WALLACE/WALLIS, also born abt. 1820 in Lisnamrock, known as “The Acres.” They are my great-grandparents.
I have been researching my Irish roots for many years, and it has led me to the Slieveardagh Hills area. Hopefully, some of your readers can help me gather more family history.
