Rev. Robert Fitzgerald Meredith of Dicksgrove, Co. Kerry: #4 of 52 Ancestors
I'm finding it nearly impossible to write about some of my favorite ancestors simply because I have too much information on them for one little blog post. So just be aware, family members reading this, that there is more information! And genealogists, there...

Week 3 of #52 Ancestors: Philip Joseph Sullivan (1911-1969)
