In 1917 my Grandfather, Rex Smalley Wheeler, was on the steamship Rochester which was torpedoed off the coast of Ireland. He was in a lifeboat that made it to shore after several days but died a couple of days after reaching Ireland. This would have been sometime around the middle of November, 1917. I have information that says he was buried in Killgallioan Cemetary, Portaclay, Mayo Co., Ireland. Could anyone confirm this for me or tell me just where this cemetary is located? Thank you for any assistance you may be able to give to me. Eleanor Greentree
