    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: vitoman99 Surnames: Garrity, Gerughty Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.garrity/292/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I'm researching the family of Michael Garrity b. abt 1803 supposedly in Clare, Ireland. He was married to a woman named Mary and they had 6 children: Barnard b. 1837; Mary b. 1839; Patrick M b. 1840; Catherine b. 1842; Richard b. 1850 and Margaret b. 1855. Most of the children spelled their last names Gerughty. Michael lived in PA. The last place I found him was in the 1870 Mifflin Co., PA census. He was 67 years old and was living in a place with 30 or more other "paupers" and "idiots". He was a pauper. In 1860 his house burned down and 2 of his children, Richard and Margaret, perished. His wife and another daughter survived. I found them living with a priest in a nearby town. Does anyone have any information on this family?
