red mail Mary and Michael Sullivan
What I know about my grandparents: Grandfather: Michael Sullivan, born 10/25/1870. Could have come from Middle Mountain or Ardfield, Clonakilty, County Cork He emigrated to the USA through Boston in 1891 according to the US Census of 1900 and lived in Chicago, Illinois after a brief stay in Whiting, Indiana. He had at least one brother, Timothy, who emigrated to the USA in 1893 (birth: December, 1869). Grandmother: Mary Sullivan (also her maiden name), born 3.25.1871? in Ardfield, Clonakilty, County Cork. She emigrated to the USA in 1890. She had at least three sisters: Kate, Nell,(both emigrated to the USA) and another sister who remained in Ireland. They met and married in Chicago, Illinois in 1895. My grandfather had a niece, Bridget McCarthy, who lived with them in Chicago at the time of the 1910 census. I believe that a pub owner in Ardfield named Dermot Mahoney may be related to my grandmother. I am planning a visit to Ireland in April/May and will be in Clonakilty in early May 2016 and would appreciate any information about the family, especially finding my great-grandparents' names and where they are buried. Thank you.

I am looking for any information on Bartholomew Whelton who was born in 1795. He married Johanna Hurley (birth 1798 in Kinsale). They immigrated to Canada in 1822. We have all the info from there to present but can not find any information from Ireland.
red mail Hanglin/Hanglan/Anglin in Clonakilty?
I'm trying to find out where my great-great-grandfather, Thomas Hanglin, came from in Ireland. He was born between 1837-1841 and eventually emigrated to the States. On his marriage certificate in 1870 Jersey City, New Jersey, he lists his parents as Nicholas and Ellen Hanglan. I have found one entry in Griffith's that lists an Ellen Hanglan/Hanglin as leasing land in 1851. If this is Thomas's mother, perhaps his father died. One of the main difficulties is that the name is spelled so many different ways. Here in the States, I've seen it spelled in the same cemetery records four different ways! If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.
red mail Donovan/Mahoney
I am looking for information on an Elizabeth Donovan (nee Mahoney). She was bn 1789 and married a John Donovan prior to 1815. He was a shoemaker, but transported to New South Wales, Aust. in 1820. She may have followed in 1826, on the "Lady Rowena" or after. Her daughter Mary Ann Donovan emigrated to Sydney in 1835 aboard the "James Pattison". Elizabeth is said to have emigrated, but I can't find clear evidence except for a birth record for an Edward (listing Elizabeth as mother) in 1839. I would like to find her parents if possible, and possibly those of John.
