Sexton...you folks wouldn't believe how I was teased in school with this name biggrin.gif ...I started research on this name back in the 90's, that's when I got into my celtic connections. I know there is Sexton's in County Clare and County Limerick Ireland today.

Any Sexton's amongst us here? If there is, maybe we can compare notes sometime...you never know, we may wind up being related! biggrin.gif
