I'm researching the family of Robert V. Cleary. With the aid of other family links we have traced his ancestors back to Londonderry Ireland, then to Escanaba Michigan, then to Butte, Montana where my husband's grandfather, Parick F. Cleary, was in charge of the cabinet shop at the Anna-Conda Mine. Around 1930, following the death of his grandfather, the family moved to Long Beach California. Some family members also moved to Medina, WA. My husband's parents lived in Oakland, CA until they passed away in 1972 and 1974. His sisters and brothers and numerous nieces and nephews all live in the Bay Area.

I have also been trying to find his mother's side of the family. She was born November 1, 1901. Her mother was Bridget Swas (AKA Anna)who was born in Oakland about 1876. She married William White of Oakland - probably in 1900 or 1901.
We have been told that the White family was a prominent family in Oakland who owned the jute mills. William White became ill after the SF earthquake where he was helping to evacuate survivors. He died around 1911 and we have not been able to trace any link with the White family to date.

I also need to trace my own roots and although I have a good deal of information on the Hosking/Shobrook/Dash families of Devon and Cornwall, England, I still have some digging to do.
