Fourth Generation

(Continued)


147. Cornelius (Con) MULVIHILL (Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM , Daniel , Bryan ) was born in 1863 in Gortdromasillihy, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Oct 1938 in Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

A Cornelius Mulvihill died aged 69 in Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry on 20 October 1938. The informant was his widow, Annie. I am told Con and Annie lived in Bedford, Listowel, but as Clieveragh is adjacent to Bedford I am assuming that this was our Con above. His age at death does not tie in exactly with the year of birth I have for our Con (1863) but ages at death on death records in those days in rural Ireland were often unreliable.  

I have been told by a family source that Con was disinherited when he married Annie as she was so young. She was 20 and Con was about 42. This may have been the reason they moved after the marriage to Annie's native county of Waterford, where they lived for several years before returning to north Kerry.

Cornelius married Johanna (Annie) SLATTERY, daughter of James SLATTERY and Margaret CASEY, on 1 Nov 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Johanna was born on 7 Dec 1884 in Lyrattin, Ballinamult, Co. Waterford. She died after 20 Oct 1938 in probably Clieveragh, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

According to the 1901 census, Annie was a 16 year-old student in  a house on Dirty Lane, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford (this was probably a convent). Somehow she ended up working afterwards as a housekeeper for the parish priest of Moyvane, Co. Kerry, a long distance in those days from her native Co. Waterford.

Annie and her husband, Con, had 14 children (seven boys and seven girls), all but one of whom emigrated (it was Jeremiah who stayed). The family lived in Boolavonteen, Mallinamult for a number of years and in Flowerhill, Lismore, Co. Waterford for a time before returning to north Kerry where they settled in Burntwood, Bedford, Listowel.

They had the following children.

  537 M i
Michael MULVIHILL was born on 4 Aug 1906 in Co. Waterford. He died.

A Michael Mulvihill who was born in Co. Waterford on 17 February 1909 filed a petition for naturalization in New York on 1 September 1931. He was living in the Bronx and worked as a shipping clerk. He had married Margaret (surname not given) on 22 November 1932 in New York and thay had one child, Margaret, born 3 June 1934 in New York. Could this be our Michael above, or a younger brother of Michael above if Michael above had died as a child?

161. Catherine (Kate) HARRINGTON (Ellen CUNNINGHAM , John , Bryan ) was born about 1851 in probably Irremore, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

Although it appears Kate above married John Daly, she applied for a search of the 1851 census on 3 January 1921 (presumably to verify pension eligibility) under the name Kate Harrington (c/o a solicitor's office in Listowel) rather than Kate Daly, which is surprising.

According to the 1911 census Kate had six children born alive, four of whom were still living at the time of the census. Those living included Thomas, Maria and Maggie who were listed with Kate in both the 1901 and 1911 censuses.
