All Families and Individuals


Michael O'HARA [Parents] was born about 1840 in probably Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died about 1921 in Moigh, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Michael married Brigid HOGG on 23 Apr 1868 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

Michael farmed at Moigh in Cootehall.

Further information on the descendants of Michael and his wife, Brigid Hogg, is available from Niall McCormick, a great-grandson of theirs, who has put his family tree on the Ancestry website, www.Ancestry.co.uk. Niall can be contacted at niallmccormick@talktalk.net.

Brigid HOGG [Parents] was born in May 1851 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She died in 1931 in Moigh, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Brigid married Michael O'HARA on 23 Apr 1868 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

At the time of the death of Brigid's mother-in-law Honoria O'Hara (née Lavin) in 1896 Brigid and Michael were living in Lake View, Cootehall. They were still in Lake View at the time of the untimely death of their daughter Annie in 1901.

The 1911 census shows Michael and Brigid living in Moigh, Cootehall with three of their children, James, Joseph and Aloysius. The census also tells us that Michael and Brigid had been married 43 years and had 14 children born alive, 10 of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

Hogg researchers may also be interested in baptismal records found for a Josephine Hogg and a Patrick Hogg, children of James Hogg and Johanna Flynn of Cootehall. Josephine was baptised on 30 April 1843 with sponsors James Moraghan and Brigid Flynn, and Patrick on 5 July 1845 with Michael Tansey and Brigid Doyle as sponsors. James was the name of the father of Brigid Hogg, above, so it is possible Josephine and Patrick could have been siblings of Brigid. We also know of a John Hogg in Cootehall who could have been a been a brother of Josephine and Patrick and/or Brigid. John married a Johanna O'Farrell and they had a son, Andrew, in 1878. Descendants of Mary 'Mud' O'Hara (1863-1941) remember a relative of hers named Andrew Hogg (who served in the RIC), so it seems likely that the Andrew born in 1878 was connected to her, possibly being the husband of her niece Mary Jane O'Hara (born 1882).

Annie, who was a nun, died at the age of 24. According to her obituary in the Freeman's Journal on 6 April 1901, "Deceased entered the Convent of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary in Blon Vire, Calvados, France about four years ago, taking in religion the name of Sr. St. Ludgarde. Three years later, owing to delicate health, the good Rev Mother General, who loved her and deeply regrets her demise, acceded to the kind request of her uncle (Rev P. O'Hara, P.P.) and parents and allowed her to visit her native country for change of air. On her arrival in Ireland she was affectionately received and tenderly nursed by her beloved parents. Her illness, though painful, was borne with the utmost patience, fortitude and resignation to the Holy Will of her Eternal Father. Her good Rev Mother General, being informed that she was seriously ill, granted her the privilege of making her Holy Vows on her dying bed".

According to the marriage certificate of James's daughter Bridget, James was from Cootehall.

Note from Helen: Although neither my husband nor I am blood-related to the Hogg family, two of James's descendants married members of the the O'Hara family of Cootehall to whom my husband is related: James's daughter Brigid married Michael O'Hara and James's grandson Andrew Hogg married Mary Jane O'Hara who was Michael's first cousin twice removed.

I am told that the Hoggs of Cootehall were originally a Protestant family. I am also told that there was a Hogg family from Kilmore, Co. Roscommon who it is known donated money to a Catholic church in the Lake District in the UK . Were the Cootehall Hoggs related to the Kilmore Hoggs?

Thanks go to Paddy Waldron for the information shown here on James Hogg and his children. Paddy came across this information while researching his Waldron ancestors (one of whom may have married a Hogg) who are reputed to have come from Knockvicar, Co. Roscommon.
