John CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born about 1851 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 1 Jan 1930 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. John married Honora (Nora) CREGAN (caution: not verified) on 27 Jan 1891 in Glin, Co. Limerick.

The information below on John's family may be incorrect: I was given detailed information on John and his family by a very reliable family source but when I came across their details in the 1901 census, I saw that John's mother is listed as Margaret (rather than Johanna, who had died in 1897). Furthermore John's county of birth is given as Limerick in the census whereas our John was definitely born in Kerry. Therefore either the family listed below is not that of our John or errors were made in filling out the census form. Any assistance in establishing the correct names of John's family members would be much appreciated. If you can help, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com. Thank you. For now I have added cautions to the names of John's wife and children.

John died from a stroke.

Honora (Nora) CREGAN (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born about 1859 in Co. Kerry. She died on 3 Jun 1941 in Glin, Co. Limerick. Honora married John CUNNINGHAM on 27 Jan 1891 in Glin, Co. Limerick.

John and Nora farmed in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick.

According to the 1911 census, John and Nora had been married for 20 years and had eight children born alive, seven of whom were alive at time of the census. All seven are listed. However, it appears John and Nora had nine children born alive, two of whom died before the 1911 census: John born in 1893 (i.e. the first John) and Johanna.

They had the following children.

  M i
Bryan CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 2 Nov 1891 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. He died on 15 Apr 1939 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick.

I was told Bryan emigrated to the United States. However, death registry records tells us Bryan died in Glin in 1939 of pneumonia aged 45 (he was in fact 47). He was a farmer and was unmarried. As the eldest son, our Bryan above would have inherited the family farm so I think it unlikely he emigrated.
  M ii
John CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 3 Apr 1893 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. He died before 10 Feb 1899 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

John died as a child.
  F iii
Margaret CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born about 1893 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. She died on 2 Apr 1931 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick.

I have been told Margaret emigrated to the United States. However, we know that Margaret died in Glin in 1931 of "probably heart disease" aged only 37. Perhaps she had indeed emigrated but had returned.
  M iv Denis CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 25 Jun 1894. He died in Jun 1987.
  M v
Richard CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 20 Dec 1895 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. He died in probably U.S..

Richard emigrated to the United States, arriving in New York on 3 April 1923. Acording to the ship manifest his contact in New York was his brother John who had emigrated three years earlier and who lived at 2437 8th Avenue.
  F vi
Johanna CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 7 Sep 1897 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. She died on 23 Aug 1899 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick.

Johanna died just two weeks before her second birthday. The cause of death was "probably debility from birth".
  F vii
John CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 10 Feb 1899 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. She died after 1998 in U.S..

John emigrated to the United States at the age of 21, arriving in New York on 11 June 1920. His contact in New York was a cousin, Denis Cregan, who lived in Long Island City. It appears John was the first of several siblings to emigrate to the U.S.
  F viii
Catherine (Cathy) CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 23 Jan 1901 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. She died on 8 Jan 1975 in Newcastle West, Co. Limerick. She was buried in Kilfergus Cemetery, Glin, Co. Limerick.

I am told Catherine was the only member of the family who did not emigrate, although it appears her eldest brother Bryan also did not emigrate. She lived in Clogough and never married.

  M ix
Patrick (Paddy) CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) was born on 1 Nov 1904 in Clogough, Glin, Co. Limerick. He died on 4 Jun 1972 in Glin, Co. Limerick. He was buried in Kilfergus Cemetery, Glin, Co. Limerick.

Paddy emigrated to the United States and retired to Glin where he died. He never married.

Nicholas MADDEN [Parents] was born about 1844 in probably Kilgarvan, Lisselton, Co. Kerry. He died on 23 Apr 1919 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Killehenny Cemetery, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. Nicholas married Sarah NOLAN on 14 Feb 1888 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

According to Nicholas's death certificate the cause of death was "probably paralysis, twelve months, no medical attendant".

Much of the information below on the family of Nicholas and his wife, Sarah, has come from the genealogical research carried out some years ago by the late Mary Lane (née O'Sullivan) of Meenkilly, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick, a granddaughter of Nicholas and Sarah. I am very grateful to Mary's family for sharing the results of her research.

Madden researchers may also be interested in the following:
An Ellen Madden of Lower Kilgarvan died on 30 December 1978 aged 77, and a Sr. Jude Madden of Kilgarvan and the Redcote Convent, Southampton died on 23 June 1982.

Sarah NOLAN [Parents] was born on 23 Dec 1864 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She died on 13 Dec 1947 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Old Cemetery, Knockanure, Co. Kerry. Sarah married Nicholas MADDEN on 14 Feb 1888 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

It appears that Sarah and her husband, Nicholas, inherited the Nolan family farm in Lenamore.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Sarah and Nicholas were Daniel Madden and Katie Nolan (probably Sarah's sister).

They had the following children.

  F i
Catherine (Katie) MADDEN was born on 7 Dec 1888 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 11 Dec 1888 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She died on 6 Nov 1962 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Killehenny Cemetery, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.

Sarah's baptismal sponsors were Thomas Fitzmaurice and Margaret Shine.

Sarah emigrated to the United States, arriving in New York on 25 September 1914. She was joining her sister Margaret who was living at 126 East 98th St. in New York. Sarah made the voyage to the States with a Nora Madden, daughter of a Daniel Madden of [what looks like] Asdee, Ballylongford. Perhaps Sarah and Nora were cousins. Nora was travelling on to Chicago to join her sister Mary.

The 1920 census shows Sarah working as a servant for a family in Manhattan. Ten years later Sarah was working for another family in Manhattan, in a house with many other servants.
  F v Bridget MADDEN was born on 9 Feb 1895. She died on 25 Mar 1970.

Elizabeth was only 24 years of age when she died.

Ann (Annie) MADDEN was born on 10 Jul 1899 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 11 Jul 1899 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She died on 11 Apr 1983 in St. John's Mercy Convent, Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Annie's baptismal sponsor was Margaret Madden (no second sponsor was recorded).

Annie completed her training as a nurse in 1926 in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England. Later that year she joined St. John's Mercy Convent in Tralee, Co. Kerry, becoming Sr. Dolores, and joined the staff of St. Catherine's Hospital, Tralee. Annie was later appointed assistant matron. After her retirement she moved to Listowel, Co. Kerry where she was Superior at the Mercy convent there for a number of years.

Joseph was ordained in 1927 and served in Sacramento, California. It is thought he may have ministered for a time in Australia following his ordination.

Joseph died of heart failure at the home of his sister Jane. I do not know if he had moved back to Ireland or was home on holiday when he died.

  F x Jane MADDEN was born on 1 Feb 1905. She died on 22 Dec 1985.

James (Jim) O'CONNOR [Parents] was born on 10 May 1916 in Gortdromagowna, Knockanure, Co. Kerry. He died on 7 Dec 2001. He was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. James married Catherine (Kathleen) STACK in 1956.

Jim and Kathleen farmed at Gortdromagowna, Knockanure. Their farm was called "The Hill", so named, at least as far back as the 1870s, to reflect the topography and to distinguish the property from those of four other O'Connor families in the area at the time.

I am told the O'Connors of The Hill are connected to the O'Connor family of Gortdromasillihy in Moyvane, a Jackie O'Connor having divided his property in the late 19th century between two sons, Cornelius who received land in Gortdromasillihy and Jackie, who got the farm at the Hill in Gortdromagowna. However I have been unable to connect Jackie to Jim's family.
