OVER 40 YEARS AGO I PURCHASED THE NASH FAMILY TREE ON A VERY LARGE PARCHMENT STARTS IN EARLY 1600'S IN COUNTY CORK. IT MEASURES 2M X 1M ALONG WITH IT CAME A LARGE OLD MAP OF LAND BOUNDRIES IN CORK. AND A SMALL POCKET ATLAS SIGNED 4 TIMES BY DANIEL ROCHE. THE NASH FAMILY ARE RELATED TO SO MANY OF THE WELL KNOWN IRISH FAMILY NAMES. THIS TREE IS RELATED TO THE QUEEN IF ENGLAND. NOW I CAN ADD ANOTHER BOOK, WONDERFUL.
SO SAD I DID NOT FIND THIS AUTHOR SOONER, MY SINCERE THOUGHTS ARE WITH HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
REGARDS

Page 99 - Well does the writer remember how the little one-roomed cabin looked as he entered it ; its rude door, hung on wooden hinges, creaking as they turned ; how joyful that good man was that he had been mindful to fetch a few nails, which he had used in the other cabin, just left, for his comfort in this, now the receptacle of all his substance.
