The descendants of Joseph and Ellen Crothers owe their existence to the decision of an Irish couple to travel to the other side of the world. Ellen lasted just 8 years in her new home and Joseph only 15, but time enough to achieve a measure of prosperity. Given the nature of occupations so many of those descendants have pursued, plenty have reason to be grateful for the education Joseph and Ellen received in County Tyrone.
