Charles MORAHAN (caution: relationship to brother John not verified) [Parents] was born in probably 1812 in Co. Roscommon. He was christened in probably 3 Jul 1812 in Killukin, Co. Roscommon. He died. Charles married Elizabeth (Eliza) CORRIGAN.

My husband, Joe Gordon, has been DNA matched with a great-great-great-grandchild of Charles, which is not surprising given that the Morahan surname is uncommon and  both Morahan families were from the Carrick-on-Shannon area. However, up until the DNA matching we had come across no evidence to connect the two families. My husband's DNA results indicate that Charles was a close relative of Joe's great-great-grandfather John Morahan who was born probably in the 1810s in probably Co. Leitrim. It is possible Charles and John were brothers but they could also have been first cousins, or otherwise closely related. In order to link them in my family tree I have positioned Charles as a brother of John but, as this relationship has not been proved, I have added a caution.

I have not yet come across any proof, although I think it likely, that Charles's and Joe's family were connected to another Morahan family in Carrick, that of coach builder Bernard Morahan whose sons Thomas (born about 1849) and Joseph (born about 1854) were also in the coach-building business.

A Charles Morahan, an 82-year-old widower and boat builder, died in Cleaheen, Co. Leitrim on 9 November 1890, indicating he was born around 1808, which would tie in with him being a sibling of John (and possible sister Winifred). The informant on Charles's death record was a grandson named Thomas Morahan of Cleaheen. Another Charles Morahan died aged 79 on 20 April 1891 in Cloonshannagh, Tarmonbarry, Co. Roscommon. However, I think it unlikely that either of these was our Charles above as our Charles lived in Cloonmaan.

Elizabeth (Eliza) CORRIGAN was born about 1815. She died on 2 Dec 1885 in Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. Elizabeth married Charles MORAHAN (caution: relationship to brother John not verified).

The informant on Eliza's death certificate was a grandson named Charles Morahan whose address was Clombrislawn, Cleaheen, Carrick-on-Shannon). However I have been unable to determine which of Eliza's sons had a son named Charles who lived in Clombrislawn - and there may have been more than one grandson named Charles in Clombrislawn).

Note: I have also seen Eliza's surname spelled as Currigan.
