Celtic Cowboy Company Website Newsletter

Newsletter for July, 2010

My hibiscus continue to greet me daily with a different blossom or two. What a great way to start each day. The relentless sun, heat and humidity are thankfully somewhat offset by the evening sea breeze from Galveston Bay. My wife and I can be found out on the front swing unwinding from the day's activities most evenings. Last night and today we are enjoying beneficial wind and rain from hurricane Alex which went into Northern Mexico yesterday.

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.


Added a graphic and photos of the candidates of the 1860 Presidential Election.

Put in some information on Napoleon's Irish Legion in the Wild Geese section of the Celtic Chronology Also placed a new picture of Framcis Scott Key in the Celtic Chronology.

The Celtic Lists section was improved.


Added Morans of Grundy County Tennessee and the family William Moran andMary (Ginnelly) Moran of Rosturk, County Mayo, Ireland to the Other Morans section.

Put up some more Moran website material.

Expanded information on Benjamin Moran, the diplomat, in the Moran Chronology (1857).

Made a correction to the Morans of Offaly (William T. Moran's wife's name).


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.
