I am researching the family name Ruane, from the Kiltmagh area of county Mayo, Ireland. To date I have determined that the family were farmers. The earliest ancestor that I have found is Jack Ruane, born approx, 1810. He had at least one son named Patrick who also worked the family farm. Patrick had several children, most of whom left Ireland for England and the U.S.
I'm also researching the family names Phillips, Ingleby and Joy. If anybody has any information that may relate to any of these names, please drop me an e-mail.
