Mary married Patrick GOODWIN. Patrick was born in 1849 in Ireland. He died in 1918 in Kentucky.

Patrick emigrated to the United States around 1862 with his mother. I am told that upon arrival his mother sent him back to Ireland to prevent him from joining the Union Army during the Civil War. He returned to the States around 1867, and from the 1870 census we know he was in Lexington, Kentucky working as a miner. By the time of the 1880 census he was a harness maker in Carlisle, Kentucky.

William married Mary Elizabeth MATTECK. Mary was born in 1890 in Taylor, Texas. She died in 1968 in Houston, Texas.

They had the following children.

+ 88 M i Charles Richard DILLAWN was born in 1927. He died in 2019.

45. Bridget (Bridie) COLLINS (Mary SHANAHAN , John SHANAHAN , Mary ) was born about 14 Sep 1866 in Ahalahana, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 16 Sep 1866 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Baptismal sponsors were Richard Collins and Bridget Connor.

Bridget married William (Bill) BUCKLEY, son of 'unknown' BUCKLEY, on 25 Feb 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. William was born about 1870 in probably Glenalappa, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I am told that Bridie and Bill lived in Aughrim, Moyvane. A 1911 census return has been found for their household and although their home was located in Glenalappa West, which adjoins Aughrim to the south, the record almoat certainly relates to our Bridie and Bill as their daughters' names match.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Timothy Dineen and Ellen Collins.

Bridget and William had the following children.

+ 89 F i Mary BUCKLEY was born about 1906. She died.
  90 M ii
'unknown' BUCKLEY died.

46. Mary (Minnie) COLLINS (Mary SHANAHAN , John SHANAHAN , Mary ) was born about 14 Sep 1866 in Ahalahana, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 16 Sep 1866 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died in between about 1907 and 1911.

Baptismal sponsors were James Shanahan and Mary Woulfe.

Mary married William (Willie) WALSH, son of William WALSH and Mary 'UNKNOWN', on 19 Feb 1901 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. William was born in possibly 1873 in probably Doonard, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died in Oct 1932. He was buried in Listowel Cemetery, Co. Kerry.

A 1911 census return has been located for Willie's household in Doonard Upper in Tarbert which tells us he was a widower at this time. The fact that his wife, Minnie, had died may account for the fact that two of their children (William and James) are listed in the 1911 census return with the family of their uncle Jer Collins, indicating that Jer and his siblings may have been helping to raise them. It is known that Willie later remarried.

I was originally told that Willie was from Marble Hole in Tarbert. I was never able to determine where exactly Marble Hole was located but, having come across the marriage record of Mary and Willie (on www.irishgenealogy.ie), I believe it to be in the townland of Doonard where Willie was living prior to his marriage.

Five of Willie and Minnie's six children emigrated, four to Australia and one to England. Only Paddy remained in Ireland; he ran the family farm in Doonard.
