1Title:  Peggy Patton Family Papers Series II     
 Creator:  Patton, Peggy Family 
 Dates:  1860-1999 
 Abstract:  Peggy Patton (nee Calvey) (b. 1937) is from Cleveland, Ohio, and is of Irish descent. Her parents Martin Calvey (1901-1980) and Bridget Moran (1894-1987) were both born in Achill Island, County Mayo, Ireland, in different villages, located approximately six miles from each other. The Moran family came from the Deserted Village, in Dooagh, and the Calvey family came from Dookinella. One of Patton's uncles, Michael Moran (1896-1921), was a Lieutenant in the Irish Republican Army. After participating in the Easter Rising of 1916 in Ireland, Michael was arrested and imprisoned in Darmunt in England. Patton is the last living child of the Calveys. The collection consists of a draft from a chapter about the Moran family, a map of Achill Island, a newspaper clipping, photographs, a program, and information regarding surnames associated with Achill Island.
