The closest I can come to being Irish is my second Great Grandmother on my mother's side. Grandma Lucy who I have been told had red hair must have inherited it from the Emerson side of the family. So today I celebrate being a wee bit Irish.
Pictured is Mary Ann Emerson daughter of Joseph Emerson and Elizabeth Carr both obelieved born in Ireland. Now if I win the Ancestry trip to Ireland I will see if we can find out more about them. If not I will just buy more of the Irish Nicholas Mosse Pottery that I collect.
