47. Michael Joseph MORAHAN (James , Charles , 'unknown' ) was born on 31 May 1877 in Cortober, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 19 Sep 1939 in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey.

Michael began his working life as a boat builder in Killarney alongside his father in the family business, Morahan & Son. By the time of the 1911 census Michael was a "sculptor - carver and modeller" in Killarney.

We know he moved to London soon afterwards because when his father, James, died in Killarney in 1912 Michael's address was 7 Vale Cottages, Kingston Vale, Putney, London (he was the informant on James's death certificate). A later address of Michael's was 32 Fairfield South, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey.

Michael married Emily Mary MCSWINEY, daughter of John MCSWINEY, on 13 Apr 1899 in Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Dominic, Hackney, London. Emily was born about 1876 in Lambeth, London. She died in probably before 29 September 1939.

48. James MORAHAN (John , Charles , 'unknown' ) was born in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died in Oct 1957 in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

The 1901 census tells us that James was a "boat and car builder". He later added coffin-making to his business.

Patrick lived in St. Patrick's Park in Carrick-on-Shannon.

James married Elizabeth 'UNKNOWN'. Elizabeth died on 15 Mar 1956 in St. Patrick's Park, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

They had the following children.

  139 F i
Mary MORAHAN died.

Mary was unmarried at the time of the death of her father in 1957.

50. Mary Ann MORAHAN (John , Charles , 'unknown' ) was born about 1874 in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died after 30 Apr 1942 in San Francisco.

Mary lived in San Francisco, California. It appears her first husband, Jack, died relatively young and she subsequently married a Michael McDonnell. Michael was born about 1882 in Northern Ireland (Jack was also Northern Irish). Apparently Mary and Michael had a son named Michael who was born about 1908 in Northern Ireland and the family later moved to California where Michael worked for the Pacific Gas & Electric Company in San Francisco. However I have been unable so far to verify the above.

A younger sister of Mary's, Katie, married Paddy Harvey, a brother of Mary's husband Jack.

Mary married John (Jack) HARVEY, son of Patrick HARVEY and Mary SHARP, on 18 Jul 1900 in Church of St. Paul, Arran Quay, Dublin. John was born about 1872 in Red Bay, Kilmore, Co. Antrim.

Jack was a policeman in Dublin.

They had the following children.

+ 140 F i Mona Mary HARVEY was born on 17 Jan 1902. She died in 1997.

51. Charles MORAHAN (John , Charles , 'unknown' ) was born in 1876 in probably Cloonmaan, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He died on 1 Oct 1956 in Dublin. He was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.

Charles joined the RIC (Royal Irish Constabulary) and we know he was stationed in the town of Bellinagh, Co. Cavan at the time of the 1911 census.  After he left the force he returned to Carrick-on-Shannon, living on The Market and working, it is thought, as a market superintendent. He and his wife, Emily, and family later moved to Dublin where they lived at 31 Talbot St.

According to the Irish Calendar of Wills and Administrations, 1858-1920, a Thomas Morahan of Cleaheen, Co. Roscommon who died on 16 August 1905 left his estate (worth £93) to a Charles Morahan, police constable. This Charles could be our Charles above although it seems more likely to have been Charles Morahan of Cleaheen, also a member of the police force, whose wife's name was Bridget and who died in 1949 aged 81 (i.e., born about 1868). Note: Bridget died on 30 March 1965. It appears she and Charles had no children.

Charles married Emily Jane O'SHAUGHNESSY, daughter of John O'SHAUGHNESSY, on 18 Jul 1906 in Clifden, Co. Galway. Emily was born about 1883 in Co. Galway. She died after 1 Oct 1956 in Dublin. She was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.

According to her obituary in The Leitrim Observer, Katie was a native of the townland of Cloonmaan in the parish of Tumna, Co. Roscommon. Her address at the time of her marriage (1902) was 18 St. Benedict's Gardens, Dublin. She married Patrick Harvey, a brother of John Harvey who was married to Katie's eldest sister, Mary.  

Around 1907 Katie and Patrick moved to Glasgow where they lived for more than 30 years. Following Patrick's death in 1940 Katie returned to Carrick-on-Shannon where she lived in St. Patrick's Park. Their son Patrick had  moved to Carrick-on-Shannon around 1919, and the family of their daughter Violet - and perhaps Violet herlelf - also settled in Carrick at some point.

Catherine married Patrick (Paddy) HARVEY, son of Patrick HARVEY and Mary SHARP, on 24 May 1902 in St. Joseph's Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin. Patrick was born about 1876 in Red Bay, Kilmore, Co. Antrim. He died in 1940 in Glasgow. He was buried in St. Kentigern's Cemetery, Glasgow.

Paddy worked a policeman from 1897 to 1907 (probably entirely in Dublin), after which he and his wife, Katie, moved to Lambhill, Glasgow where Paddy's brother George had settled. I am told Paddy ran a pub in the Glasgow area, and by the time of the marriage of his daughter Violet in 1930 he was living on Crossburn St. in Glasgow and working as an iron foundry labourer.

They had the following children.

Paddy was a boat builder, carpenter and painter. He lived in St. Patrick's Park in Carrick-on-Shannon. It appears he never married.
