Michael Francis DUNNE [Parents] was born about 1864. He died on 1 Feb 1937 in Dublin. Michael married Elizabeth (Lizzie) MOLLOY on 27 Jun 1906 in Crossna, Keadue, Co. Roscommon.

Other marriages:
'UNKNOWN',

Michael was a commercial traveller.

Elizabeth (Lizzie) MOLLOY [Parents] was born in 1874 in Derrynargon, Keadue, Co. Roscommon. She died before 1 Feb 1937. Elizabeth married Michael Francis DUNNE on 27 Jun 1906 in Crossna, Keadue, Co. Roscommon.

Lizzie and her younger siblings were born in Derrynargon, Keadue, Co. Roscommon, while her older siblings were born in Ballyfermoyle, Boyle, Co. Roscommon (according to their birth records). It could be that Derrynargon is located in Ballyfermoyle and all of Martin and Anne's children were born in Derrynargon. However, I have been unable to determine if this was the case.

Lizzie was Michael's second wife.

  M i Michael Francis DUNNE was born about 1864. He died on 1 Feb 1937.

Michael MOLLOY was born about 1781 in Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 22 Feb 1866 in probably Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Michael married Catherine CARTY.

Michael farmed in Ballyfermoyle. Research carried out in the late 1970s and early 1980s by Col. Cyril Mattimoe, a descendant of Michael above, tells us it certain the Molloys were NOT natives of Co. Roscommon. Cyril recalled his mother telling him the Molloy family was from Meath and initially assumed she meant Co. Meath. However, years later he discovered that the Meath his mother mentioned "was the old name of a territory in Co. Offaly which included Ferceall, the ancient territory of the Molloys". Another relative told Cyril the family came from Tullamore, Co. Offaly and another said that the Molloy farm in Ballyfermoyle had been in the family for 300 years, so it appears the Molloys left Offaly around the middle of the 17th century. Cyril thought it likely they were transported to Roscommon in the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland.

Cyril also tells us there was another Molloy family in the Cootehall area of Co. Roscommon. These were the Oakport Molloys and apparently they settled in the area in the late 16th century. Cyril found no evidence of a blood connection between the Oakport and Ballyfermoyle Molloys but it seems the two families were close.

On 19 July 1847, a Michael Molloy of Ballyfermoyle was fined sixpence plus sixpence in costs for "furiously driving his horse and cart through the street of Leitrim" on 13 July. Was this Michael above or his son Michael?  

Note from Helen: neither my husband nor I am directly related to the Molloy family but Michael's grandson Joe Molloy of Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim married my husband's grandaunt Linda Morahan in 1918. Another relative of my husband's, Laurence O'Hara, married a Catherine Mulloy or Molloy from Cootehall, daughter of Charles Mulloy/Molloy, in 1846. Could Catherine have been member of the Ballyfermoyle or Oakport Molloy families?

Catherine CARTY was born about 1793. She died on 21 Jan 1855 in probably Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Catherine married Michael MOLLOY.

They had the following children.

  M i John MOLLOY was born about 1810. He died on 12 Mar 1894.
  F ii Mary MOLLOY (caution: husband and children not verified) died.
  F iii Jane MOLLOY died.
  M iv
Michael MOLLOY was born in probably Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died.

Unfortunately we have no information on Michael.
  M v
James MOLLOY was born in Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died in U.S..

James emigrated to the United States.
  F vi Bridget (Biddy) MOLLOY died after 8 Mar 1880.
  F vii Elizabeth (Betty) MOLLOY died.
  F viii Eleanor (Ellen) MOLLOY died.
  F ix Catherine MOLLOY was born about 1830. She died on 12 Jul 1901.
  F x Ann MOLLOY was born about 1831. She died on 27 Oct 1906.
  F xi Margaret (Maggie) MOLLOY was born about 1833. She died on 20 Jan 1867.
  M xii Martin MOLLOY was born about 1834. He died on 12 Jul 1916.
  M xiii Thomas MOLLOY was born about 1835. He died on 16 Jun 1920.

Thomas MOLLOY [Parents] was born about 1835 in Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 16 Jun 1920 in Breanletter, Keadue, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. Thomas married Ann MARTIN on 28 Feb 1859 in Geevagh, Co. Sligo.

Thomas inherited the family farm in Ballyfermoyle. Following his death the farm went to his daughter Anne McManus and her husband.

Note: Birth records of the children of Thomas and his wife, Ann tell us they were born in Ballyfermoyle, and the death records of those who died before 1900 give Ballyfermoyle as their place of death. However, according to the 1901 and 1911 censuses, the family was living in Breanletter, and death records after 1900 give Breanletter as the place of death, although it does not appear that the family moved. Ballyfermoyle and Breanletter are adjoining townlands in the north-east corner of Ardcarne parish so it is possible the Molloy farm straddled the two townlands.

Ann MARTIN was born about 1837. She died on 12 Mar 1915 in Breanletter, Keadue, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Ann married Thomas MOLLOY on 28 Feb 1859 in Geevagh, Co. Sligo.

The 1911 census tells us that of Ann and Thomas's 15 children who were born alive, only six were still living. We can account for four of the living (Kate, Anne Jane, Henry and Emily) so it appears that of Michael, Tom, Patrick and Eddie, two had died by 2 April 1911.

  F i Catherine (Kate) MOLLOY was born about 3 Apr 1860. She died on 29 Sep 1921.

  M vi
Thomas (Tom) MOLLOY was born on 21 Jul 1866 in Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died in probably 3 3 1909 in Sligo, Co. Sligo.

A Thomas Molloy, aged 43 and originally from Ballyfermoyle, died in Sligo on 3 March 1909. The cause of death was "heart failure caused by exposure". I think it likely that this was Thomas above. His death record also tells us he was a commercial traveller and unmarried.

A Michael Molloy died in Ballyfermoyle on 6 December 1899 of tuberculosis aged 32 (indicating a birth year of about 1867), the informant being a brother named John Molloy of Ballyfermoyle.
