John studied at St. Michael's College, Co. Kerry; St. Munchin's Catholic College, Limerick; and St. John's Seminary, Waterford before being ordained a priest on 19 June 1904. His first mass was in the Pro-Cathedral, St. John's Church in Waterford.

According to family sources, John was a cousin of Bishop John Francis Cunningham of Concordia, Kansas. While no proof of this has been found, it seems likely they were related as Bishop Cunningham's mother's maiden name was Fitzgerald and John was sent to Concordia in September 1904 from where Bishop Cunningham appointed him assistant pastor (i.e. assistant parish priest) of the Sacred Heart Church at Salina, Kansas.

After 10 weeks in Salina Bishop Cunningham appointed John pastor of Ss. Peter and Paul's Church at Cawker City, Kansas, where he remained until February 1906 when he became pastor of the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help at Goodland, Kansas while also serving at the Sacred Heart Church in Colby, about 40 miles distant. In 1911 he was sent to Lincoln, Kansas as pastor of St. Patrick's. I have no further information on John's postings but he may have spent his entire career in Kansas as he died there aged 95.

Other marriages:
'UNKNOWN', (caution: not verified)

We do not have names for four out of William's five daughters who entered the convent (all joining the Sisters of Charity order in Kansas, along with their eldest sister, Ellen). However, we do have their names in religion: Sr. Anacleta, Sr. Mary Joseph, Sr. Mary Evangelist and Sr. Mary Baptist. We also have have names and dates of baptism for three of the above unnamed sisters: Catherine Mary (baptised 14 August 1866), Margaret (19 May 1868) and Bridget (9 March 1870). But which is which?

Catherine MCAULIFFE (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born in Ballybehy, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. She died. Catherine married William FLYNN on 24 Dec 1859 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Maurice Riordan and Bridget McAuliffe.

They had the following children.

Ellen (Sr. Agnes) FLYNN was born on 11 Jan 1860 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 12 Jan 1860 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. She died in 1934 in Topeka, Kansas.

According to her obituary in The Kerryman newspaper of 12 May 1934, Ellen was a relative of Bishop John Francis Cunningham of Concordia, Kansas. She was not a blood relative, however, being only connected to the bishop and his family through marriage. We are also told Ellen died following eight years of illness. The obituary goes on to say that Ellen had gone to Kansas in 1880 (probably encouraged by Bishop Cunningham who invited many of his relatives to Kansas to enter religious life there); and two years later she joind the Sisters of Charity order. She was primarily a teacher and spent a period of time teaching the children of silver and gold miners in "two [states] in the Rocky Mountain region". She also worked in hospitals and was superioress of St. John's Hospital, Leavenworth, Kansas and St. Vincent's Hospital in Billings, Montana.

A newspaper account from 1932 of Ellen and her sister Sr. Anacleta's Golden Jubilee celebrations mentions "other cousins from Ireland, William and Rodney McAuliffe and Miss Mary McAuliffe". Ellen's mother's maiden name was McAuliffe but I have been unable to determine how exactly these cousins werer connected to Ellen's family. I am also aware of another of Ellen's relatives, a Sr. Mary Felicitas McAuliffe (c.1889-1959) of the Sisters of St. Joseph order in Concordia, who is presumably related to the McAuliffes mentioned above. Her obituary tells us she was born in Salina, Kansas and was survived by a sister, Mrs. Mary Pfab of Atlanta, Georgia (whose son Charles was a Marianist priest) and a brother, William of Kansas City, Kansas. I am told Ellen's family was also connected to the O'Rourke family of Hill House, Abbeyfeale but I have not managed to establish how they might be linked.

I am adding John and his family to my family tree as I have been DNA-matched by Ancestry with a great-great-great-grandchild of John's (suggesting we are "5th-8th cousins"). I think it likely the connection is through the Cunningham family, although I have no proof.
