Keenan of Kilrea
My gg grandmother Isabel(la) Keenan of Ergana(gh) townland, Kilrea, Derry married Archy Hegarty about 1840, so I assume she was born around 1820. Isabella had siblings or cousins named John, Charles, Paul, William, and Michael. Her first (known) daughter was named Mary Ann, so that may have been her mother's name. Isabella and Archy farmed 11 acres in Movanagher, a mile from Kilrea town (where the Hegartys lived). In addition they had a joinery shop so some of the famiy may have made furniture. Their son, my g-grandfather Thomas Francis b. 1849, emigrated to New York City about 1870 where he developed real estate 1880-1910 in Brooklyn. Thomas had siblings John, William, Mary Ann, Patrick, Archy, Daniel, Henry, Margaret, and Charles b. 1845-64. Looking for distant family or for information about life in Kilrea parish at the time.

Searching for the wherabouts my grandparents came from in Ireland. I believe it was Londonderry, possibly Kilrea. They were William McLoughlin,b,c1869,Susan,b,c1867(they emigrated to US in 1888 and 1889 respectively). Sons: William, b1893, Joseph b1894,Robert,b1900 and daughter Lizzie,b1898 All the children were born in Philadelphia, and are on the 1900 US Federal Census. I believe Susan may have died in US ,early 1900's as the family returned to Ireland and were raised by an aunt or gran on a ? farm. I don't know if there were any other siblings. If anyone recognises these names I would love to hear from them.Many thanks. S
