You will find information here from the BARRETT and GAUGHAN family that came from County Mayo Ireland, Derrycorrib and Glencastle in the Belmullet area in 1870. They lived for a while in Schuylkill County PA (Shenandoah) before coming to Ohio.

You will also find here, information on the ROBBINS, of Broadway Ohio, in Union County, the Plotners in Clairdon Ohio, Marion County, and the BRAMMER family, coming from Lawrence County OH, Ironton. West Virginia and Virginia and the GEORGE and PUGH family that lived in Greenup KY, then Marion County Ohio.

Thanks so much to my aunt Juanita Plotner Callahan who worked so hard to compile all the information on the Plotner Family. I appreciate your great efforts and know that I pale in comparison with my endeavors to find "from whence we came".

Thank you to my mother, Helen Plotner Robbins Paratore for adding her stories and memories to our family tree and making it come alive again. It makes all the difference! Thank you also for being the great role model that you were for myself and all my brothers and sisters. This world would be a better place if all children had the advantages of a role model like you are.
People may now come to this page, to see "Who we Are".

Thank you also to my late Mother-in-law, Hazel L Brammer, who thought to write down the information on the George and Brammer Family Tree for us. You always thought of everyone else before yourself, and you will never be forgotten.

Please let me know if this research is connected to your family by leaving me an email.

Enjoy looking into our family tree.
