Celtic Cowboy Company Website Newsletter

Newsletter for February, 2011

Winter will soon be gone and am I glad. We had one of the coldest ever for these parts and I had to be out in it. I will be glad to see Spring come. I look at the freeze desolation to my garden and see a major project coming. I look forward to the undertaking.

My new job has resulted in my placing a section for it on the website where interested parties can get information on the company and employees, who report to me, can find the forms and data they may need.

The website is still averaging over 3,000 visits a week. The subjects of interest are still evenly split between Aeroplanes Vought, Moran Genealogy and The Celtic Connection to Texas History

. To my Dutch friends of Crossmolina, Edmond and Aine Van Estrik- my computer crashed and one of the things lost was your e-mail address. Please contact me so I can respond and regain your address.

The Celtic Connection to Texas History

There are some nice paintings of historical interest soon to be posted in this area, watch for them


More pictures posted on the Moran Websites, there are some new Coats Of Arms, and a map showing the line in Mayo where Cromwell's Settlement Act was in effect (on the other side, East, of Carrowkeel.


There are two sides to every story and in my direct family's case that other side of the Moran family is the Traynor family. Of course this changes as you go back or forward in generations, but in the case of my Father, his mother's maiden name is Traynor. That makes all my Father's brothers and sisters (13) and their children, and their children, etc. related as well. Kate Sullivan, daughter of my Father's sister Kae Moran (Sullivan), has built a website showing the Traynors and all the allied families. It has gotten to be quite a genealogical database and has provided many finds including the interrelationship of several of the same families over the generations and finding a large number of cousins in New Zealand. Kate Sullivan, daughter of Jim Sullivan and Kae MORAN Sullivan, who put together the TRAYNOR family genealogy. can be reached at this e-mail address:kategalway@yahoo.com That site is http://www.tribalpages.com the username is "Traynor" for the ID ( password), please e-mail Kate.


There is nothing new in this section. I need to find time to post the List of Engineering Designs called V-List.


Looking forward to showing the results of the Garden Project when I am through with it sometime late Spring

Updated the Hook'em Horns .PPS. Looking forward to the "New Look", new results Longhorns this coming football season, 2010 was a bitter pill.
