Please ignore my previous post.

A recent update has found my Stevenson is not from Longford

Can an admin remove my last post please?

When I sent away for a history of my husband's surname, Frawley, it said it was a variant of Farrell and descended from the O'Fearghails of Longford:
http://www.farrellclanireland.com/

But I knew that his eldest descendant was born in Rathkeale, Limerick Ireland in 1821 and that they were known to have been there a long time. I tested the Y out to 67 markers and he tested positive for R-L226 Irish III which is most notably linked to the Dál gCais clan/tribe located mainly in Counties Clare, Tipperary, Limerick, and Cork. When I look at the map of Irish III, I see Longford seems to have a presence of Irish III males:

So, I'm curious to know if there was a known migration of Farrell's South or if this is an ancient NPE? I guess, what I'm most curious about is: What is the typical Y signature of males who's surname descends from the O'Fearghails of Longford? Thanks!

My gg grandfather was John Owens born circa 1828 in Legan, County Longford. He was the son of Edward Owens and Bridget Devine…

Elizabeth M McGrath migrated to the U.S. about 1852 as an orphan. She married, Charles James Smith, about 1860, in New York. Yes, she was only 13 and he was only 19.

Mastersons from Leggagh, Co. Longford

My father, Laurence Masterson (b. 1909, Leggagh, Moyne, Co. Longford; d. September 24, 1954, Chicago, USA ) arrived in the United States September 15, 1930. He was the son of Thomas (b. 1875. Moyne-area, Co. Longford) and Anne Corcoran (b. 1866, Crott, Moyne, Co. Longford). My father had three brothers and one sister. Brothers Peter and Patrick also left Ireland for the United States. His brother Thomas and sister Catherine, and his Mother, Anne, stayed behind. His father Thomas also lived in the USA before returning to Ireland where he died and is buried in Moyne RC cemetery. I've participated in DNA testing 6 times (ftDNA - 2 times; National Geographic - 2 times; 23andme - 1; Ancestry - 1). I have two first cousins living in the Ballinamuck, Co. Longford area. My ancestry search has come to a dead-end at Thomas Masterson and Anne Corcoran; little has been revealed regarding their parents. I travel to Ireland and Longford every two years.
