Dear Michael, I have been tring very hard to find information on my grandmother.

Her birth name is Rita Margaret Carney,born 1918, in county Mayo? Her parents were James Carney and Agnus Swift. She came to America by herself around 1928-1935 and lived with an uncle, John Bannon in New York. She married Arthur Lee Wright on Oct.31,1936, and had a son on Dec. 15,1937. They divorced in 1941, and she was not allowed to take my father with her, we think she may have gone back to Ireland.

I would just like to hear any information any one might have on her and what happened to her. This a missing piece of my heritage. If any one knows her, please let her know Arthur has passed on and we love her.

Any info any one might have would be appreciated

Thank you,
