mad in pursuit: PRICE & DUNNE

This is my father's branch of the family, who settled in St. Louis, Missouri. My grandmother Bridget Dunne came from rural County Galway, Ireland, shortly before World War I. The parents of my grandfather Walter Price emigrated from Derbyshire, England, during the late 19th century and have roots in Worcestershire (Price), Derbyshire (Nash) and Lincolnshire (Newham). These histories are included together in the .PDF file "Of Brilliance and Belonging." If you have questions or additional information, contact us!
