    Hi Maureen,

    Love to meet up and discuss our family roots. Patrick Devereux was my Grandfather and Mary was my Gran Aunt.

    My cousin Gladys informed me of this site and I love the fact that there is a photo. I have very little information about my grandmother (Mary Devereux Allen) and her brother (Patrick Devereux) So I appreciate learning more about them to bring them to life for myself and my children and grandchildren.
