Basic family tree on Wikitree Crowe-937. Also GedMatch no, WD3404946
My family line is one of several, possibly a dozen that lived on or around the mountain of Glenaneigh, west of Clonoulty, Tipperary and then 'streamed' away. It is now crowned with a wind turbine farm! Crowes from Kilcommon parish in the 1800s are almost certain to be related, Clonoulty possibly. Crowes from Cappawhite and Sologhead are related but more distantly.
I am connected to a group of people, now eleven, who are related to Crowe or are Crowes themselves. If you are interested I can help make contact with them.
Slowly, I am building up a network of people in other countries who are related to our Crowes too.
