I am one of the few Americans of Irish heritage whose ancestors had no connection with the Famine of the Mid-19th Century. The last of my Irish ancestors who came over to America arrived in late 1820’s to settle in South Texas as Mexican citizens on a Mexican land grant. Mexico was trying to populate their Texas territory with Catholics to offset the Anglo settlers coming in from the U.S.. However, my Irish ancestors supported the cause of Texas Revolution and several died in support of that cause.
