The Loomie family are ancestors of our daughter-in-law. This Irish family came to the U.S. at the time of the "Potato Famine" in the mid-19th century. Their original name, LOONIE, was changed to Loomie and Lonnie in recent generations. To date, no attempt has been made to trace the family history in Ireland. Mother, Loretta Murphy, was a strong woman who decreed that her three sons would grow up to be a doctor, a lawyer, and a priest. They did!
