    Colleen Finucane Whelan (Sunday, 14 August 2016 19:18)

    This email is for Henry Finucane. Henry, I believe I am an ancestor of yours. I hope so as I think you are the last of the Finucane line that I can find on my fathers tree. My grand father was Michael Finuance, of House #11 Lissaniska, who immigrated to New York in 1907, and he was the son of James Finance and Mary Finucane of House #11 in Lissaniska. My grand father Michael Finucane, (son of James), had a brother named William Finucane, who stayed in Ireland and he also had two sisters, Margaret and Mary Finucane who also immigrated to New York. (first to Waterbury, Connecticut and then to Staten Island, New York.) I know my father visited the farm in Lissaniska many times when I was a child and he was so very fond of his relatives in Ireland and spoke of them often, including a William Finucane. I would love for you to correspond, if you wish. my email address is: colleenfwhelan@msn.com.

    I am trying to find out information about 2 priests called John O'Keeffe who were from Meenscovane, Kerry that I you have listed under local clergy. I think one of them was a priest in Ballybunion when he died in 1888.

    Looking for any information about a Mulvihill family, I think they were from the Moyvane area. My 2 x great grandfather was Henry Mulvihill born early 1800s ? He married Mary Meade and left Kerry mid 1800s to work and live in Belfast. any relations in Kerry still ?

    Thank you.

    Hello,
    I have been searching for information on a Herlihy family....who were from Kerry/Listowel. Ellen and Patrick Herlihy had 5 children..Patrick, Cornelius,Anne,Tim and Mary. Mary was born around 1929 and immigrated to Canada in 1950, landed in Nova Scotia, then made her way to Montreal where she stayed for a couple of years before moving on to Toronto. Any information would be gratefully appreciated......Mary's middle name was Theresa. There is no record of a marriage for her, but she had a significant other at one point whose name was Michael Kelly, who was also from Ireland. Thanks!
    email is vhuntinmi@wowway.com

    Cathy Umbers (Sunday, 25 July 2010 04:36)

    I was born Catherine Doody in 1951,daughter of William Doody b 1918 Islandanny Duagh to Humphrey Doody and Catherine Fitzmaurice. I have traced 5 of Humphreys siblings to Indianapolis. Humphreys's sister Catherine Doody married Timothy Broderick of Lacka East in 1908. 2 sons on 1911 census (Lacka East): John Broderick b1908 Kilmorna, and Michael Broderick b1909, Kilmorna. Any Broderick relatives reading this please get in touch. Now working on the Brosnan and Barry ancestors of a cousin. Her maternal grandparents were John Brosnan from Shronebeirne Duagh and Catherine Barry from Lacka East Duagh. They married in 1919. John had siblings who went to Chicago and Catherine had siblings who went to Pittsburgh. I would love someone to explain to me how you define the boundaries of Islandan(n)y. It has come up on birth & marriage records of people living in the townlands of Lacka East, Shronebeirne & Sluicequarter. I cannot find it on a map. Where was it and where did the name come from please? I really enjoy browsing through this website. Looking forward to a visit to Kerry in a couple of weeks. Email:cathy@umbers.me.uk

    Excuses, the e-address below is out of date and incorrect. It should be

    Jim McMahon <jimcmcmahon@yahoo.ie>

    Cathal Cavanagh (Wednesday, 07 July 2010 16:54)

    Jim McMahon son of author Bryan McMahon from Listowel would very much like to contact the Terry who wrote the following on the McMahons.
    Jim's email: jimcmcm@gofree.indigo.ie as Terry's info corresponds closely with his own family.

    c Mahon :
    I am Terry, descended from Bryan McMahon b. 1831 or 1837 who came to New
    Zealand circa 1855, and married Margaret Devane in Australia on Dec 17,
    1866. Bryan had brothers Patrick, John and Owen, and daughter Ellena b. Jan
    13, 1839 and another daughter. John m. Ellen Tangnay on May 22, 1864. All
    are believed to have left Co. Kerry (Molahiffe, Mile Height or Ballyseedy
    areas), some to the USA and some to Australia for the gold rushes. Bryan's
    father was Thade (Timothy) who m. Margaret Hannafin. He had brothers Jermiah
    (Darby) who d. April 16, 1857, and who m. Mary Murphy who d. Jan 31, 1878;
    Terence who m. Johanna Murphy Jul 14, 1839; Owen who m. Catherine
    O'Sullivan; Denis; Brian who m. Catherine Enright; Charles who m. Ellen
    O'Sullivan and Daniel. Their father was Terence who m. Margaret Moriarty and
    he d. Dec 10, 1840. His brothers were John who m. ? Flynn; Owen who m. Nora
    Stack in 1810; and Timothy who was a half-brother. Their father was Darby
    (we believe it could have been Dairmaird or Jeremiah) who d. 1778 and who m.
    firstly M. O'Sullivan the mother of Timothy; darby m. secondly Eleanor
    O'Mahony who was mother to the other three. Darby had 9 sisters whose
    details are not known. Darby's father was John McMahon who m. Catherine
    Moriarty. John's brothers were Brian, Jeremiah, Timothy and Terence. John
    would have been b. circa 1710. His father was Terence who was b. circa 1680.
    We believe he was one of four brothers who came to Co. Kerry from Co. Clare,
    and he settled in Molahiffe. Two of the others are believed to have gone,
    one to Knockanure (north of Listowel in Co. Kerry) and one to Kilmoiley. A
    fourth went to Co. Limerick, where one line included the French connection
    through Jean-Baptiste de MacMahon (John MacMahon) b. 1715. Terence stayed in
    the Molahiffe area, and his grandson Darby (and probably Terence and his son
    also) are buried in the ruins of the old Molahiffe abbey near the church at
    Firies.

    Someone in the area may have better knowledge of the graves and their
    inscriptions. We would dearly like to hear from anyone with this knowledge.
    We would also like to hear from anyone with any interest in any of the
    people mentioned above. Unfortunately the older records in the Molahiffe
    parish were destroyed by fire, but the family were Catholics, and leased
    land for potato farming. Terence's G/G/Grandson Jeremiah (Darby) leased land
    at Bushmount off Daniel C. Coltsman, and Jeremiah himself sublet land to
    Timothy Cahill. This was in 1853.

    Please send all information/inquiries and we can
    swap information. We believe we came from the Co. Clare MacMahon/McMahon
    family who descended from the O'Brien Kings from Brian Boru.

Hi Anne Morrisson,

 

Good to hear from your family again.

 

There was a Fr Mulvihill OMI in North America and a place called Mulvihillnamed after him, he may be of Kilbaha, Moyvane, Newtownsandes. Co Kerry, he was uncle of Brother Patrick Shine of the Presentation Brothers in Cork. See picture of him at knockanure.myphotoalbum.com

Message: From KY Gregory relation; I saw the info on the Kane family, Is .

the name spelled Kain in Ireland? we have Cain here as well as the Kane that was mentioned. John c Kane was the father of William Kane, Mary Kenaly was his mother. Thomas Kane was john's father and Cecelia McGovern was john's mother.

I hope that you are doing well.

Bobisxtws

information on Bolton's Cross came from Jonah McKenna Moss. In a follow up letter he said:

 

 

"The Justice family was a large wealthy Anglo-Irish protestant family), with two branches which resided in Kerry, and Mallow area in Cork. All the various family trees agree on the point that the daughter of John Bolton and Mary Justice, Julia Bolton married one of the Mallow Justices (my ancestor), uniting the two families again. The Mallow Justices married into the Allens, Ashetons, Barret, and Holmes families as well. One branch converted to Catholicism and moved to Boston and Melbourne Australia.

 

Essentially, I am trying to figure out why there is a place in Listowel called Bolton's Crossroads, and which Boltons it was named for, since there is a high likelihood that they might have been connected to mine. "

 

 

he Tithe Applotment Book (1830) for Listowel parish lists “Mr Bolton’s Demesne” and “Mr Bolton” as holder of the same land, along with another plot listed to 2 other men (Mulvihill and Horan).

 

As to who these Boltons were, it is not easy to say! The “Kerry Evening Post” (22 May 1833) gives a marriage of Robert Ellis Bolton, youngest son of John Bolton, Prospect Lodge, Listowel, to Christiana, 3rd daughter of Mr Haycroft, Doneraile. This couple seems to have moved to Doneraile, as subsequent records show a Robert Ellis Bolton L.A.H.D. (I don’t know what that set of initials stands for!) buried there on 23 April 1890, aged 77 years & 10 months. Christiana was buried at Doneraile on 9 July 1886 (aged 71).

OBITUARY (Unknown Stoughton newspaper)

Word of the sudden death of James Drury, aged 72 years, reached Stoughton on Thursday, Nov. 2nd and was a surprise to everyone. He was in town only a short time ago and appeared to be in good health, and indeed was up to the night of his illness.

The night previous to his death he was suddenly taken ill, medical aid was immediately summoned and upon arrive, Dr. Robertson pronounced it paralytic stroke. Despite all that was done, he gradually sank and passed peacefully away the next day.

The late Mr. Drury came to Stoughton to live some seven years ago from Rapid City and located south of town. He was well and favorably known by many in this district as well as in town.

He leaves to mourn his loss, four boys, the eldest Edmond, of Winnipeg, and Charles, Patrick and Joseph of this place.

The funeral left his late residence on Saturday last at 9:30 and proceeded to the Catholic Church, Forget, where services were held by Father Monrad, after which followed by a large number of relatives and friends, the cortege proceeded to the Forget cemetery for interment. The sons have the sincere sympathy of their many friends in their bereavement.

NEWSPAPER CLIPPING FROM JOURNAL OF JAMES DRURY:

Letter to a Newspaper (1871 is handwritten on top):

EVICTIONS AT TARBERT

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TRALEE CHRONICLE

Tarbert, May 21

My Dear Sir – The long impending sword has been finally drawn by Mr. Elliott, against the persons referred to in my last letter. The following are the names of the house holders evicted.

Patrick Sylvey Connor, Tom Ned Connor, Mrs. Drury, James Enright, and Michael Burns. In All 36 individuals.

Will Mr. Elliott, or his Solicitor, in the case let the public know why so many have been so ruthlessly evicted? I shall await their reply. I will let the public look forward for it.

In the meantime, I can safely, I think, state that the eviction was not for rent or arrears of rent, nor for any unwillingness on their part to assume, if demanded, a higher rent.

A TARBERT MAN

I think we may have emailed sometime ago but Im really not sure.My KENNELLY ancestors are from Ireland and my greatgrandmother, MargaretKENNELLY ended up in Nebraska about 1877, with her husband and family,Maurice LANGAN,I dont have alot of information about Margaret, only that her parentswere Cornelius KENNELLY and Mary or Margaret NESTOR or NESTER. She had 2or 3 brothers, Patrick, Michael and possibly a Thomas..Dont know of anyother siblings. I can give dates of birth and death but didnt want tobore you with alot of dates and details unless you think there may be aconnection. Thanks for your time. :)CrisAtwater California

Have been trying to trace some family history...can only get back to 1901 census for the name Cunningham. After searching several other sites I decided to check my gr-great grand mothers maiden name. She was Bridget Kennelly and arrived in the US with her son Denis Cunningham and his wife Katie O'Sullivan. They left Direen, Athea CO. Limerick in 1906. She was married to Cornelius Cunningham but left him in Ireland for America. The ships manifest indicates that she was 60 at the time of arrival but so does the 1901 census. I have noticed a lot of names that seem to fit others that are tied to the Cuninghams. Any help would be appreciated. ThanksSteve Cunningham This is Peggy. Just received your email to contact you since you just had a chat with a Collins person. First, Thank you for remembering me. (researching my dad's side: Flavin (Flahavan), Costello, Hanrahan, Stack, and Collins being the maiden name of as far back as I have gotten on my birth name of Flavin/Flahavan, Mary Collins marrying John Flahavan both born about 1800. I so wish I could find someone right in your area to do some paid searching for me, especially at the Church in Ballybunion and Ballylongford. Let me know if you ever find me someone, since I don't forsee us getting back to Kerry. Peggy in California They were the Jackeen Con's, they went to school with me and my siblings. My brother Dick or Paddy Fitz or Kathleen Stack opposite the Church would fill you in. Please send me copy of the article on Joe Daly, who came to Moyvane South from Glin as an orphan, became one of the family, corresponding with my father for years from USA and gaining a reputation as a tenor. I am looking for anyone with a connection to the subject couple.Michael KEANE, born in Ballylongford, Kerry in 1865, came to Montreal in 1901,Bridget Kinsella from Gory, Wexford, arrived in the same year.They married in St Patrick's cathedral in June 1902, and lived in Griffintown.Their 6 children were baptized with the last name KANE.Mary J, born Mar 22, 1903 - nothing knownHelen G, born Apr 10, 1904 - nothing knownAnne (Dudie), born Jul 29, 1906, married Arthur AllanJohn, born Aug 23, 1908, married Muriel DuncanMichael, born Mar 23, 1914, married Suzanne LegerEdward(Eddie), born Aug 24, 1918, married Gwen Rochon.Mike Kane in Nova Scotia When my grandmother Julia Howard (later Mrs. Edw.Brennan) arrived in Chicago in 1907her passenger manifest (Ellis Island) states she was going to her "Cousin Nora Ahern" who was living at 1343 Watson Ave. Chicago.Traveling with gramma from Listowel was Catherine Dillon.Catherine Dillon also stated her destination was "Cousin Nora Ahern" of the same Watson Ave address in Chicago.Catherine Dillon listed her father as Thomas Dillon of LIstowel.Does anyone have either this CATHERINE DILLOR or NORA AHERN in their I noticed on your family tree a Murt Daly. I am researching my wife'sfamily, which has its origins in Ireland. Her father was Mortimer Daley,born in Broken Hill, Australia in 1904. He was called after hisgrandfather, Murty Daley, or Daly, who lived in either County Clare orCounty Limerick. Murty's son, Martin, migrated to Australia in the lateninetheenth century (where he married an Irish girl, Catherine Guare). All I know about Murty Dal()y is that he was possibly married to a BridgetFitzpatrick. Is there a possible relationship between your Murty Daly andthe one I am looking for? If not, are there any on-line records I coulduse to further my search.

I was contacted recently by a Kevin O'Connorin the UK who is researching his north Kerry roots. One of his ancestors wasThomas O'Connor from Shronebeirne in Duagh, one of whose sons, Patrick (born1834 in Shronebeirne), settled in Kilbaha. It's probably a long-shot thatthere's any connection between Kevin's O'Connors and mine seeing thatO'Connor is such a common name and I think that my O'Connors may have movedto Kilbaha before Kevin's Patrick arrived, but you'd never know... You told me when we were last in touch that you thought my O'Connors hadmoved from the Athea side of the river to settle in Kilbaha. I've just beenlooking at a map of Athea and surroundings and I see that Athea seems to beactually on the river so I can't figure out which side of the river they mayhave come from. Do you think they may have come from south of the river,i.e., south of Kilbaha, or somewhere close to Athea? Any information at allyou might have would be much appreciated.

Is she an ancestor of yours? Do you know anything about that side of the family? Thank you,-- As far as I know, Johanna Kennelly of Newtownsandes (b. 1843?) married Patrick Moore in Ireland. Their Children were Catherine, Honorah Mary (my great-grandmother), Mary, Michael, and William. Patrick Moore seems to have died in Ireland, whereupon the rest of the family emigrated to the U.S. Here I have conflicting information - it may have been 1872 or 1881, but the former is more likely. The family came through Philadelphia and went to Pittsburgh, PA, later moving to New York, which is where my family's from. Jer,Are you still at this address?I stopped by to see you a few years ago.
