Maurice CONNORS (caution: relationship to first cousin Patrick not verified) [Parents] was born about 1825 in Mountcollins, Co. Limerick. He died on 18 Jan 1897 in Caherlevoy, Mountcollins, Co. Limerick. Maurice married Mary LEAHY.

I have been DNA-matched by Ancestry with a great-grandson of Maurice's daughter Ellen and with a grandchild of Maurice's son Thomas. The exact type of relationship between Maurice's descendants and myself is unknown but it indicates a close connection between Maurice and my great-great-grandfather Patrick Connors. The likeliest scenario is that they were brothers or first cousins. Because Maurice appears to have been born in Mountcollins while Patrick may have been born in Dirreen, Athea, about 35km distant, I am making an assumption that they were not brothers (although this of course could be incorrect) and for the time being I am positioning Maurice as a first cousin of Patrick's and adding a caution.

Could Maurice have been a brother of Ann (born c.1825), William (c.1832) and Ellen (c.1842) Connors of Mountcollins who were childen of a Jeremiah Connors? I have also been DNA-matched with decendants of Jeremiah's.

Cornelius SHANAHAN (caution: relationship to John not verified) [Parents] was born about 17 Jul 1814 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 19 Jul 1814 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 29 May 1882 in Dooncaha, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Cornelius married Hanora MCMAHON about 1850.

I have been DNA-matched by Ancestry with great-great-grandchildren of Cornelius. The exact type of relationship between them and me has not been determined but it appears I could be their fourth cousin, which would make Cornelius above a brother of my great-great-grandfather John. However, because this is not 100% certain I have added a caution.

Cornelius's baptismal sponsors were James Shanahan and Honora Condon.

Cornelius was a farmer and publican. Although he lived in Moyvane village he died in Dooncaha, Tarbert. Had he moved there or had he been taken ill there?
