Classification: Query
Surnames: Woods, McConnaghey
All based on family heresay and my memory...but this William A Woods was my great great grandfather. He was mayor of Sligo and also owned the Woods General Store which up until a few years ago still existed and was owned by descendant Kitty McConnaghy (sp?) whom we met whilst visiting Sligo in the early 2000's. Our branch of the family live in South Africa and were sent here they say as a "remittance man", his son they presume was either an alcoholic, gambler or both and was paid to stay away in the 'colonies' when he was mayor. He became a postal rider here. My grandfather was Bill Woods (William Abbott Woods), my father is Jeremy William Abbott Woods and my brother is William Abbott Woods (b. 1973)
