Cronin and Vaughan families in Dromtarriff/Dromagh, County Cork
Searching for information about the family of Elizabeth Cronin, baptized 26 July 1835 in Dromtarriffe (Drom Tarbh) parish in County Cork, near Dromagh, in a townland called Garranbaun (An Garrán Bán), which had various spellings over the years as anglicized. Wish to confirm that she is my great-grandmother, who emigrated to the US and died in New York City in 1891. She married a James Cullen in NYC, and had 7 children who survived to adulthood. Her parents are listed in her baptismal record as John Cronin and Mary Vaughan, who had at least three other children, baptized in the years indicated: Patrick (1834), Mary (1837), and John (1842). If this is the right family, Patrick also came to the US, living first in NY and later in San Francisco, where he died in 1898, leaving 8 surviving children (his wife was Catherine A. Smith). Their brother John also apparently emigrated, to NYC, and has numerous descendants in upstate NY. Their sister Mary appears to have remained in the parish, where she married Cornelius Fitzpatrick in 1860, and they had at least one child there, Jeremiah (born 1866). I already have the baptismal/marriage records for the people named (where available online), and can supply that info and much info about the families in the US, but would like to learn more about the family in Ireland.
