I am researching my father's side of the family. My ggreat-grandfather Andrew Newman left Co. Westmeath, Ireland in 1852 with two of his children. They arrived to the port of New York and from there made their way to Sherburne, NY where they found a home. In 1853 Andrew's wife Mary (Heslin) Newman arrived with the rest of their children.
My great-grandfather Michael Newman married Hannah O'Daniels (Daniels) in Sherburne where they raised their 10 children. Hannah's parents were James and Catherine (Ryan) O'Daniels (Daniels), they came from Ireland to Sherburne in the 1840's.
My grandfather Edward Newman left Sherburne and went to Mechanicville, NY in the early 1900's were he met and married Helen (Nellie McNally) Newman in 1904, they had five children. Edward was married before Nellie but have not been able to find to who or where.
My father Michael Newman left Mechanicville with his mother, brothers and sisters around 1918 and made their way to Denver, CO. where Nellie married William Farrell. Walter the oldest child left Denver and went to Sherburne where he lived with his father and grandparents. William, Nellie and the rest of the children left Denver and went to Los Angeles, CA in 1926. Michael met and married Marie (Lopez) Newman they had one child Linda.

Michael's mothers (Nellie) family is, father Henry McNally who came from Ireland in 1871 and settled in Stillwater (Mechanicville) area met and married Mary Sweeney, they had three children. Mary had been married before to Dennis Driscoll they lived in Halfmoon, NY and they had two daughters.
Mary came from Ireland in 1851 with her family, father Terence Sweeney, mother Ellen (Ryan) Sweeney, brothers and sisters and settled in Stillwater, NY.

I am hoping to find and exchange information with any decendants of the above families.
