Descendants of 'unknown' MEEHAN (to contribute information, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com)

Third Generation


5. Thomas KELLY (Mary MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born in Jan 1841. He died on 28 Oct 1910 in Huntley, Ontario. He was buried in Corkery Cemetery, Huntley, Ontario.

Thomas married Jane O'LEARY, daughter of Samuel O'LEARY and Mary CONBOY, in 1867 in Huntley, Ontario. Jane was born about 1842 in Ontario. She died on 22 Nov 1934 in Ottawa. She was buried in Corkery Cemetery, Huntley, Ontario.

They had the following children.

+ 25 M i Thomas KELLY was born about 1868. He died in 1909.

8. Eleanor (Ellen) O'HARA (Eleanor (Ellen) MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born about 23 Apr 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 23 Apr 1849. She died on 2 Jul 1928 in Cartrontaylor, Ballintogher, Co. Sligo. She was buried in Kilmactranny Cemetery, Co. Sligo.

Sponsors at Ellen's baptism were Edward Walpole and Mary Anne O'Hara. Ellen's name on her baptismal certificate is Helena.

According to her marriage certificate, Ellen's residence prior to her marriage was Cleigna in Cootehall.

From her newspaper death notice we know that Ellen died at the home of her daughter Bridget Kelly in Cartrontaylor.

Eleanor married Patrick MULLANY/MULLANEY, son of Denis MULLANY, on 13 Jan 1867 in probably Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Patrick was born about 1838 in Kilmactranny, Co. Sligo. He died about 1916 in Coolmurla, Geevagh, Co. Sligo.

Patrick and his wife, Ellen, and family lived in Coolmurla (sometimes spelled Coolmurly), Kilmactranny, Co. Sligo. Kilmactranny is the name of the civil parish, Coolmurla also being located in the Catholic parish of Geevagh, comprised of the civil parishes of Killadoon and Shancough, as well as Kilmactranny.

Note: I have seen Patrick's name spelled as Mullany as well as Mullaney. His family appears to have gone by the name Mullaney.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Michael O'Hara and Maria O'Hara.

Eleanor and Patrick had the following children.

+ 26 F i Mary Jane MULLANEY was born on 5 Aug 1868. She died on 25 Oct 1940.

+ 35 F x Bridget Mary MULLANEY was born about 1885. She died on 25 Apr 1967.
  36 F xi
Margaret MULLANEY was born about 1888 in Coolmurla, Geevagh, Co. Sligo.

9. Margaret O'HARA (Eleanor (Ellen) MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born about 8 May 1851 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 10 May 1851 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She died on 28 May 1940 in Derrynargon, Keadue, Co. Roscommon. She was buried in Jamestown Cemetery, Co. Leitrim.

Witnesses to the marriage of Margaret and Owen were James Barrett and Bridget O'Hara, Bridget presumably being Margaret's sister.

Owen and Margaret farmed in the townland of Cloonfeacle near Carrick-on-Shannon.

Margaret died at the home of her daughter Linda Molloy and was buried in Jamestown Cemetery, as were her husband, Owen, and their two their children who died young, William and Gretta. Their gravestone, if there was one, is no longer visible.   

Note: The O'Hara family is twice connected to another family being researched - the Gordons of Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. Margaret O'Hara's daughter, Mary Morahan, married Cormac Gordon whose older sister, Bridget Gordon, was married to Margaret's younger brother, Laurence O'Hara.

Margaret married Owen MORAHAN, son of John MORAHAN and Mary BERTRIDGE, on 4 Feb 1875 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Owen was born about 10 Dec 1842 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 12 Dec 1842 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 3 Feb 1928 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was buried in Jamestown Cemetery, Co. Leitrim.

The only baptismal record found by the Leitrim Genealogy Centre for an Owen Morahan baptised in Kiltoghert gives a baptismal date of 12 December 1842 and parents' names of John Morahan and Mary RUTLEDGE (sponsors were Mathew Gaffney and Ann Jones). The genealogist from the Leitrim Genealogy Centre thinks that 'Rutledge' should actually read 'Bertridge' given the similarity between the names and the fact that there is no evidence of any more baptisms around that time in Kiltoghert where the mother was Mary Rutledge. Nor is there any record of a marriage in Kiltoghert between a John Morahan and a Mary Rutledge whereas a marriage did take place between John or James Morahan (it is unclear on the actual marriage record) and Mary Bertridge on 24 March 1836 in Kiltoghert. Furthermore Owen's date of baptism does not conflict with the baptism dates of John Morahan's and Mary Bertridge's other children, or with their date of marriage.

According to his death record, Owen died of 'old age'.

Note: In some documents, Owen is listed as "Eugene" (these names are interchangeable in Irish families).

They had the following children.

+ 37 M i John MORAHAN was born on 17 Nov 1875. He died on 24 Jan 1953.
+ 38 F ii Mary MORAHAN was born about 5 Aug 1877. She died on 20 Jan 1932.
+ 39 M iii Michael Joseph MORAHAN was born on 13 Jul 1879. He died on 7 Mar 1959.
  40 M iv
Lawrence (Larry) Aloysius MORAHAN was born on 7 May 1881 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 8 May 1881 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 29 Jul 1970 in Roebuck Road, Dublin. He was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin.

Sponsors at Larry's baptism were Michael Hunt and Ellen O'Hara.

Following studies at St. Patrick's College in Drumcondra, Dublin (Larry is listed as a 19-year-old student at the college in the 1901 census), Larry became a school teacher and it is known that he was teaching in Dublin in 1903. In 1904 he emigrated to the United States and possibly spent some time in Chicago before moving to Montana. We know that in 1906 he was living in Butte, Montana where a very large number of Irish were living at the time, attracted by the plentiful supply of jobs in mining. In Butte, Larry was involved, along with his first cousin Michael Hunt, in the publication of the Irish nationalist Butte Independent newspaper ("Published Every Saturday by Mulcahy, Morahan and Hunt"). By late 1911, however, Larry was living in Houston, Texas - Ellis Island records show that his brother Paddy, who arrived in New York in October 1911, was planning to join him there. Larry became naturalised in Houston on 9 May 1912.  

The 1920 census shows Larry and Paddy living in the same rooming house in Houston. Larry was now working as a clerk in a tax assessment company, although family sources say that he worked in the newspaper business in Houston. It appears he returned to live in Ireland prior to 1925 as he married Molly (Hurley) in Galway in that year and it is known that they lived in Galway for many years. He and Molly had no children, and Larry died in a Dublin nursing home at the age of 89. There is no stone marking his grave in Deansgrange Cemetery.
       
Lawrence married Mary (Molly) Teresa HURLEY, daughter of John HURLEY and Ellen HORAN, on 17 Sep 1925 in Cathedral of St. Nicholas, Galway. Mary was born on 31 Oct 1888 in Dominick St., Galway. She died on 14 Jan 1951 in Galway. She was buried in Bohermore Cemetery, Galway.

According to her marriage record Molly was a shopkeeper from Dominick St. in Galway. She and her husband, Larry, had no children.

Molly is buried with her husband's nephew Gussie Morahan and his wife, Rose, in Bohermore Cemetery.
+ 41 F v Bridget Linda (Linda) MORAHAN was born in Mar 1883. She died on 30 Apr 1958.
  42 M vi
Eugene MORAHAN was born on 15 May 1885 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 28 Jul 1935 in 283 Tara St., San Francisco.

Eugene emigrated to the United States in April 1909 and made his way to Butte, Montana where his brother Laurence was living. From his Declaration of Intention (to become a US citizen), made in Montana in March 1911, we know that Eugene was working as a miner in Butte at the time and that he was was 5ft 11ins tall with light brown hair and blue eyes.

Sometime prior to 1920 Eugene moved to the San Francisco area where it is known he worked as a foreman in the shipyards, a steelworker (as per the 1920 census), an automobile mechanic and eventually a labourer doing odd jobs (as per the 1930 census). It is known that he was living in San Mateo, south of San Francisco, in 1920. At some point during the 1920s he visited his brother Michael in Denver and gave each of Michael's children $5, a big sum in those days.  

Eugene died tragically at the age of 50 when a fire broke out at his home on Tara St. in San Francisco. His wife, Margaret, was away at the time visiting in the San Mateo area, when in the early hours of Sunday, 28 July 1935 the fire department was alerted to the fire at 283 Tara St. It is believed that Eugene had been smoking his pipe and listening to the radio as usual in the sitting room before going to bed and that the blaze was caused by the pipe which had been left smouldering in the sitting room. The fire was confined to the sitting room but Eugene died from "carbon monoxide poisoning, first and second degree burns to his face, arms, chest and legs". The coroner's report adds that "a quart bottle containing some wine was found in the bedroom".
       
Eugene married Margaret CLAFFEY, daughter of John CLAFFEY and Bridget BYRNE, on 15 Feb 1920 in St. Michael's Church, San Francisco. Margaret was born about 1884 in Corramore, Kiltoom, Co. Roscommon. She died after 28 Jul 1935. She was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, California.

Margaret and her first husband, Eugene Morahan, had no children. They lived at 283 Tara St. in San Francisco, just around the corner from Margaret's sister Cecilia and her family who lived at 511 Mount Vernon Avenue. It is believed that Margaret and Eugene struggled financially.

Margaret's second marriage, to John Gibbons, was apparently arranged by a matchmaker named John Nerney.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Eugene and Margaret were Thomas Nerney and Agnes Naylor.

  43 M vii
Patrick (Paddy) MORAHAN was born on 21 Oct 1887 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 23 Oct 1887 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 5 Mar 1965 in Houston, Texas. He was buried on 8 Mar 1965 in Memorial Oaks Cemetery, Houston, Texas.

Sponsors at Paddy's baptism were John Morahan and Mary Hunt.

Paddy emigrated to the United States in 1911. According to Ellis Island records, he and his sister-in-law, Emily, (wife of his brother, Michael) travelled together, arriving in New York on 5 October 1911. On the ship manifest, Paddy's occupation was given as "clerk" and his final destination was Houston, Texas where his brother, Lawrence, lived. There is another Ellis Island record showing a re-entry to the U.S. for Paddy on 20 November 1922. By this time his home was Houston and he was a U.S. citizen having been naturalised in 1920. From Paddy's Declaration of Intention (to become an US citizen), made in Houston in January 1914, we know he was 5ft 9ins and had brown hair and grey eyes.

Paddy worked as a salesman for Standard Printing and Litho in Houston from 1911 until 1947 and then as a salesman for two other companies until 1962. Apparently his family was displeased when he married Opal, who was a divorcée.

Paddy's death was due to a heart attack. He died in Ben Taub General Hospital in Houston.
       
Patrick married Opal Emma COLLIER, daughter of George Wesley COLLIER and Sarah SANDERS, on 29 Jul 1947 in County Clerk's Office, Houston, Texas. Opal was born on 5 May 1906 in Oklahoma. She died on 5 Jul 1974 in 4404 Junius St., Dallas, Texas. She was buried on 12 Jul 1974 in Dallas City Cemetery.

From Opal's death certificate we know she had worked as a clerk in a drug store. The cause of death was "arteriosclerotic heart disease".

  44 M viii
William H. MORAHAN was born on 20 Sep 1889 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 21 Sep 1889 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 24 Apr 1912 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was buried in Jamestown Cemetery, Co. Leitrim.

William died of pneumonia aged only 22, four months after the death of his younger sister, Gretta.
+ 45 M ix Thomas (Tom) J. MORAHAN was born on 24 Jan 1891. He died on 10 Apr 1949.
  46 F x
Margaret (Gretta) Mary MORAHAN was born in Jun 1894 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 23 Jun 1894 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died on 1 Jan 1912 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was buried on 3 Jan 1912 in Jamestown Cemetery, Co. Leitrim.

According to family sources, Gretta died of tuberculosis, although the cause of death given on her death record is nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys), the duration of which was a year. She was only 17 years old.

11. Bridget O'HARA (Eleanor (Ellen) MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born about 2 Feb 1854 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 2 Feb 1854.

Sponsors at Bridget's baptism were Patrick O'Hara and Catherine O'Hara.

Bridget married Thomas MORAN (caution: not verified) on 12 Feb 1883 in Cootehall, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. Thomas was born in possibly Ballyfarnon, Co. Roscommon. He died.

A Bridget O'Hara of Clegna, Cootehall, daughter of Laurence O'Hara, married a Thomas Moran in Cootehall, Boyle, Co. Roscommon on 12 February 1883. It is likely that it was Bridget, daughter of our Laurence O'Hara and Ellen Meehen that Thomas above married but because this has not been verified I have added a caution.

Thomas was a merchant, according to his marriage record (1883), which also gives his address as Ballyfarnon and tells us his father, John, was a farmer. By the time of the birth of his son Thomas in 1890 he (i.e. the older Thomas) was a farmer (according to the younger Thomas's bith record).

They had the following children.

+ 47 M i Thomas MORAN was born on 23 Jan 1890.

15. Laurence O'HARA (Eleanor (Ellen) MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born about 24 Sep 1860 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 26 Sep 1860. He died on 12 Jan 1928 in Dublin. He was buried on 14 Jan 1928 in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin (grave OH 71.5 St. Bridget's).

The O'Hara family is twice connected to another family being researched, i.e., the Gordon family of Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. Laurence married Bridget Gordon; and Mary Morahan, a niece of Laurence's, married Bridget's younger brother, Cormac.

It is believed that Laurence spent a number of years in Colorado as a young man.

Laurence died of heart failure at St. Vincent's Hospital in Dublin.

In 1914 a Laurence O'Hara, a farmer and rate collector from Clegna, was charged with the murder of a Patrick Farry of Moigh, Co. Roscommon. Mr. Farry was a member of the Carrick-on-Shannon District Council and chairman of the Knockvicar Creamery Society, of which Mr. O'Hara had been secretary at one time. It seems that on the evening of 26 November 1914 Mr. Farry received a beating from Mr. O'Hara over £10 or £12 which Mr. O'Hara said Mr. Farry owed him from the time he was secretary of the Creamery Society (a dispute which apparently had already been dealt with in the Dublin courts). Mr. Farry lost consciousness as a result of the beating and woke up in the early hours of the following morning covered in blood. He died three weeks later, on 18 December, and Mr. O'Hara was charged with murder. It was subsequently determined by a panel of medical professionals that Mr. Farry's death was due to pulmonary tuberculosis and was not related to the beating. Mr. O'Hara was thereby acquitted. Could this Laurence O'Hara have been our Laurence above?

Laurence married Bridget (Bea) GORDON, daughter of Thomas GORDON and Anne FOLEY, on 18 Jul 1886 in Fairymount Church. Bridget was born on 7 Jun 1859 in Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 11 Jun 1859 in Loughglynn, Co. Roscommon. She died on 5 Sep 1949 in Clegna, Cootehall, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was buried on 7 Sep 1949 in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin (grave OH 71.5, St. Bridget's).

There is a record in the LDS Vital Records Index for the christening in Loughglynn of a Bridget Gordon, daughter of Thomas Gordon and Anne Foley. The date of the christening ties in with the date of birth provided by the family (June 1859) and not with the information on Bea in the 1901 census which indicates that she was born about 1865.

Bea and her husband, Laurence, lived in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Bea died at the age of 90, outliving her husband, Laurence, by 21 years.

They had the following children.

  48 M i
John Gordon O'HARA was born about 1 Nov 1887 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 1 Nov 1887 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 2 Jul 1908 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

John died in a drowning accident at the age of 20. His body was found in a river in Clegna on 2 July 1908.
+ 49 F ii Evelyn (Eva) Mary O'HARA was born about 13 Jul 1889. She died on 12 Oct 1954.
  50 F iii
Florence Mary (Sr. Margaret) O'HARA was born about 14 Mar 1891 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 14 Mar 1891 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She died in 1968.

A Florrie O'Hara, aged 18, who was born in Co. Roscommon is listed as a pupil at the School of Rural and Domestic Economy in Clifden, Co. Galway in the 1911 census. This may be Florence.

Florence entered the convent, becoming Sr. Margaret.
  51 M iv
Joseph O'HARA was born about 21 May 1892 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 21 May 1892 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 14 Feb 1893 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

Joseph died of a "cold" at the age of nine months.
  52 F v
Josephine (Sr. Austin Camillus) O'HARA was born about 19 Nov 1893 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 19 Nov 1893 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She died in 1983.

A Josephine O'Hara, aged 16, who was born in Co. Roscommon is listed as a pupil boarding at the Presentation Convent School, Tuam, Co. Galway in the 1911 census. This may be our Josephine.

Josephine entered the convent, joining the order of the Sisters of Charity. Her name in religion was Sr. Austin Camillus.
+ 53 F vi Bridget (Bertha) O'HARA was born about 14 Dec 1896. She died on 1 Oct 1948.
+ 54 F vii Mary Catherine (Kathleen) O'HARA was born on 7 Aug 1900. She died on 4 Dec 1984.
  55 M viii
Laurence O'HARA was born on 12 Jan 1905 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 7 Feb 1905 in Clegna, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

Laurence died of pneumonia at the age of one month.
+ 56 F ix Matilda (Maud) Mary O'HARA was born on 28 May 1906. She died on 21 Feb 1976.

18. John Joseph LOGAN (Winifred MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born in Jan 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 13 Jan 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died in 1905.

Sponsors at John's baptism were Charles Meehan and Margaret Meehan. John worked as a station master for the railway company. His address at the time of his marriage in 1877 was Glooria, Co. Roscommon, and following his marriage, he and his wife, Annie, lived in Greatmeadow (also spelled Great Meadow), Boyle, Co. Roscommon. They later moved to Cartron, Co. Roscommon.

John married Anne (Annie) Josephine MCPARTLAND, daughter of Myles MCPARTLAND and Catherine CARTY, on 12 Feb 1877 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Anne was born in Jul 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 8 Jul 1849. She died in 1911 in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

According to her marriage certificate, Annie's address at the time of her marriage in 1877 was Rockingham, Co. Roscommon. The occupation of her father, Myles, is given as coachman. Perhaps Myles worked at Rockingham Demesne.

Witnesses to the marriage of Annie and John were Charles Meehan and Catherine McPartland. Presumably Catherine was Annie's sister who married John's brother Peter.

At the time of the 1901 census, Annie, John and their family were living in the station house in the townland of Cartron in the parish of Kilmore, Co. Roscommon. Following John's death in 1905 Annie moved with some of her children to Moycullen, Co. Galway where her son Peter was working as station master. The 1911 census tells us that Annie was still with Peter in Moycullen.

Note: McPartland is sometimes written on documents as McParthlan, Parthlan and Partlan. All the variations seem interchangeable.

They had the following children.

  57 F i
Agnes LOGAN was born on 27 Jan 1880 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She died on 4 Feb 1880 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

Agnes died eight days after her birth.
  58 F ii
Annie Mary Josephine LOGAN was born on 10 Feb 1882 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 14 Feb 1882.

Birth and baptism records located for a Joseph Logan born 10 February 1882 to John Logan and Anne McPartland might in fact relate to Anne, or to a twin of Anne's. If so, sponsors at her or her twin's baptism were Thomas McPartland and Bridget Hargarden. Annie's name appears in the 1901 census return for her parents' household. Her age is given as 20 and her occupation looks like "clerk". There is no Joseph listed.
+ 59 F iii Emily Marion LOGAN was born on 22 May 1884. She died on 7 Jul 1966.
  60 M iv
Peter John LOGAN was born on 12 Apr 1886 in Dublin; or Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 18 Apr 1886 in Boyle, Co. Roscommon. He died on 3 Aug 1968 in Hill of Down, Co. Meath. He was buried in St. Finian's Cemetery, Clonard, Co. Westmeath.

Sponsors at Peter's baptism were Myles McPartland and Honora Hargaden. According to the 1911 census, Peter was born in the Dublin city which does not tie in with the information I received from family sources.

Peter was a station master and worked in Moycullen, Co. Galway and Hill of Down, Co. Meath. It is known that he was in Hill of Down in 1937 when he had to give evidence at an inquest into a fatality on the railway line. Peter was the last station master at Hill of Down.
       
Peter married Anna Maria HEVEY, daughter of Peter HEVEY and Annie 'UNKNOWN', on 20 Oct 1937 in St. Mary's Church, Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath. Anna was born in 1901. She died on 1 Feb 1984 in Hill of Down, Co. Meath. She was buried in St. Finian's Cemetery, Clonard, Co. Westmeath.

Anna was from Hill of Down, Co. Meath.
  61 M v
Charles LOGAN was born on 23 May 1888 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. He died on 1 Jun 1888 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

Charles died nine days after his birth.
  62 F vi
Catherine (Kathleen) Florence LOGAN was born on 8 Oct 1889 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 13 Oct 1889 in Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She died on 8 May 1969 in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

Sponsors at Kathleen's baptism were Patrick Connaughton and Anne Hayes.

  63 M vii
Thomas Frances LOGAN was born in 1895 in Co. Sligo. He died on 15 Jun 1974 in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. He was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.

According to the 1901 census, Thomas was born in Co. Sligo. However, his parents lived in Greatmeadow, Co. Roscommon at the time.

Thomas lived in Hill of Down, Co. Meath.

22. Elizabeth LOGAN (Winifred MEEHAN , 'unknown' ) was born about 1859. She died in 1939 in Co. Roscommon.

On Elizabeth's marriage certificate (transcribed from the original), her address is given as "Drumchinne", but I have been unable to find a townland or parish of this name in Co. Roscommon. The closest match was the townland of Drumshannagh near Boyle.

Elizabeth married Thomas GLYNN, son of Patrick GLYNN, on 16 Feb 1880 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. Thomas was born about 1855.

On Thomas's marriage certificate (transcribed from the original), his address is given as "Cuidera", but I have been unable to find a townland or parish of this name in Co. Roscommon.

Witnesses to the marriage were John Glynn and Anne Logan.

Note: A Jim Glynn from the Boyle area married an Evelyn Mary O'Hara from Cootehall around 1915 (the O'Haras being connected to the the Gordons and the Morahans, two other families being researched). Is it possible that Thomas and Jim might have been related?

They had the following children.
