Richardson Frederick Rathmore
Grandfather Frederick Richardson, grandmother Harriet and their two sons Cecil & Lionel lived here in the early 1900's. Lionel was born in Rathmore, Kinsale district, Co. Cork in 1905. Grandfather was a trapper although I do not know where exactly. I am interested in any information of possible location. He moved to Cappoquin where another son was born in 1908. There is some connection with the Blackwater river.

Sheehan/Linehan/Cronin/Healy (Rathmore? Millstreet?)
I am working on my families lines and I have hit a dead end with my paternal grandfather. Any information on:
Denis Joseph Sheehan Sr. Born 16 OCT 1868 Cork Death 18 OCT 1921 USA.
Wife Bridget A. Linehan Born Feb 1870 Cork Death Abt 1952 USA.
Marriage 1 SEP 1898 USA.
Port of Departure: Queenstown, Ireland and Liverpool, England
Ship Name: Samaria
Arrival Date: 13 Jul 1891
Port of Arrival: Boston, Massachusetts
I do not have birth certificates. The dates are from their Naturalization papers.
The only thing we know from Denis and Bridget is they came from Cork. I have a gut feeling about the name RATHMORE and so I am posting this in both Kerry and Cork Counties. There is also an association to MILLSTREET.
We are not even sure if that refers to the city or the county. I have recent leads that Denis' dad may have been John and his mom Mary Cronin both born about 1845. Also got a lead that Bridget's parents might be John J Linehan and Mary Healy. I have no dates for them.
You see my problem... Thank you for trying to help! I truly do appreciate any help anyone can give me, from the bottom of my heart!
