red mail Joseph & Ann O'Connor (Connor)
All I know is that my family, the O'Connor's, came from County Kerry. They were Joseph & Ann (also known as Pammy) O'Connor. Their children were Mary (born in Ireland 1856), Elizabeth, Ann, Joseph and Catherine (Born in the US in 1879.) I do not know what village they were from. I was told that they came to the US sometime after the Potato Famine. They dropped the "O" in the ocean when they came to the US so thereafter their surname was Connor. Mary Connor married Joseph Kennedy and had five children in the US. Elizabeth married Thomas Malon. Ann never married. Joseph married Elizabeth Arbaugh and Catherine married William E. Booth. Any information or help is greatly appreciated.

red mail Barry's of Kilmore/Clashmelcon, Co Kerry
In the US, I was able to find my G-G-Grandfather, Michael Barry b. 1822, on a small farm (20 Acres) on Indian Hanna Way above the Brandywine River near Embreesville in Newlin Township, Chester County, PA. I found him in the 1860 Census (Marshalton Post Office) with wife and 3 children. I also found his marrage to Margaret Gainor and the baptismal records of their 8 children in the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Historical Research Center which holds the historical records for St. Agnes Parish (RC) in West Chester, PA. The marrage is dated May 28, 1854. Searching church records in Ireland, I found a Michael Barry of Kilmore b. 1822 to John and Honora (nee Griffin). I also found that they belonged to the Causway Parish (RC), Co Kerry. Then I happened on a Margaret Gainor of Tiduff, also of the Causway Parish (RC). The only discrepancy here is that the baptismal record lists her birth as 1820, 2 years senior to Michael, and the 1860 census list her age as 26, or born in 1834. It is not too great a leap of faith to consider that G-G-Grandmother Margaret may have fibbed a bit about her age to the census taker. The 1851 Griffith's Valuation also shows Michael residing in Clashmelcon, Map reference 27 (house, forge and land). Then I found across the road a John Barry in the same baile/Townsland of Clashmelcon, Civil Parish of Killury, Co Kerry map references 8,16,17, 18a, 19b, 30, and a small island called Kippin Rock (no ref #) and Townsland Ardoughter map ref 20. Somewhere between the 1851 Valuation and the marrage in West Chester, Michael and Margaret made their mway to America and settled down to raise 8 children, including my G-Grandfather, Edward Patick Barry. John and Honora (nee Griffin) Barry had: John b. July 29, 1807 Edward b. May 27, 1810 Lawrence b. November 28, 1811 Michael b. February 7, 1813 (may have died very young) Francis b. June 24, 1815 Michael b. February 28, 1822 Michael Barry of Clashmelcon is also mentioned at the bottom of page 22 in Jeremiah King's "County Kerry Past and Present", 1931 as one of the 84 Barry families in Co Kerry that he enumerated. It seems that there are too many ties between Michael Barry of Kilmore and Margaret Gainor of Tiduff and the Michael and Margaret of Chester County, PA to be a coincidence. If anyone has an interest in the Barrys and Griffins of Kilmore or the Gainors of Tiduff, I'd be happy to share what I have unearthed so far. If you have some information that compliments this, then please consider adding it to the record. Thank you.
red mail Heffernan Family of County Kerry 1800's
My great-grandmother Hannah Heffernan, was born 1847 in Ireland and I at this time can only assume she lived in County Kerry Area, with her father Thomas Heffernan and mother Deborah Heffernan, as I have found her brother Michael Mick Heffernan & his family mentioned in the 1911 Census. This Michael Heffernan of County Kerry, (my great grandmothers brother) had a son Thomas Heffernan who became a Catholic Priest and he came to the US, San Francisco California in 1924 & died there in 1925. I am trying to find a connection to the possible remaining Heffernan Family thatmay still may live in Ireland, to help me complete my family tree.

In 1841 Timothy and his family are living at Half Moon Court, St Andrew above Bars, Holborn (also with Jeremiah listed as part of the household). TIMOTHY died before the 1851 census.
