    My maiden name was Lunnin, my great great grandfather was Hugh Lunnin who was born in Ireland in 1832 He and his wife Isabella S Morton are buried in Boston Massachusetts. His father’s name was Hugh, mother’s name unknown. I cannot find what town or county they originated from, any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
