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

First Generation


1. 'unknown' MORAHAN died.

Unknown's name may have been Dominic as baptismal records have been located online for Charles, Bridget, John and Thomas whose parents were Dominic Morahan and Mary Killelea - I believe John, my husband's ancestor, had siblings named Charles Bridget and Thomas. Baptismal records have also been found for two other children of Dominic and his wife, Mary (Margaret and Mary) I have included them below.

Morahan is an unusual surname in Ireland but is not uncommon in Connaught. It comes from the Irish 'Ó Murcháin' of which there were two septs, one in Offaly and one in Leitrim. The name is sometimes spelled 'Moraghan', or shortened to 'Moran'.

A Margaret Morahan, daughter of a Dominic Morahan and Mary Killelea, was baptised on on 22 May 1814 in Killukin. As I have no proof that Dominic and Mary were also the parents of Margaret's possible brother John (my husband's ancestor), I have added a caution.
