Celtic Cowboy Company Website

Newsletter for November, 2009

The good news is my health and the weather are both much improved over last month. My garden took a hit while I was in the hospital. I am working to salvage what is left. We (my wife and I) have been trekking north these past several Saturdays to visit my wife's niece who had a tragic accident that has kept her in a long hospital stay and possibly in a wheelchair the rest of her life.

The Celtic Connection to Texas History

Photograph and map related to Rebecca McIntosh was added. Some small additions to Confederate Texas were added.

Pictures have been added to 19th Century Texas.


Several Maps were added: related to Cromwell Act, Mayo and Sligo.

A picture of the Moran House on Massachusetts Ave in Washing ton D. C.'s Embassy Row has been added.

More Moran website pix were added.



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.

This section was developed for others to pursue, but as they have not - it is being restored on this website to see if it can get going. It is for students of Texas History of all ages but particularly for the younger ones to give them a forum in which to participate, get recognition and hopefully begin a life long appreciation of history.


This section has shown little outside interest so very little has been done here.


Nothing new was added to this section.
