Descendants of Edmond MULVIHILL (to contribute information, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com)

First Generation


1. Edmond MULVIHILL was born about 1799. He died in May 1857 in probably Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Edmond farmed in Tarbert, Co. Kerry and, according to a number of online posts, divided his farm between his sons Edmond, Patrick and Jeremiah.

It appears Edmond's family is closely related to the Mulvihills of Ballygoughlin, Glin, Co. Limerick and the Mulvihill family of Dirha (or Derry as it now seems to be called), Listowel, Co. Kerry as there is a large plot in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane with several headstones naming members of all three families. I have not managed to establish how Edmond is connected to the Ballygoughlin and Dirha families; however, the Dirha family is descended from another Mulvihill family who had settled in Shronowen, Listowel (Jeremiah Mulvihill was born in Shronowen in 1843 and died in Dirha in 1910).

Note from Helen: neither my husband nor I are descended from Edmond. However, several members of my family, particularly those connected to my Cunningham family, married descendants of Edmund, hence my interest and their inclusion on this website.

Edmond married Julia 'UNKNOWN'. Julia was born about 1803. She died in 1871 in probably Tarbert, Co. Kerry. She was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

They had the following children.

Jeremiah MULVIHILL was born about 1836 in probably Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died on 2 Mar 1897 in Tarmons, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He was buried in the large Mulvihill plot, Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I have been told Jeremiah farmed in Murhur, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. However, it seems he also farmed in East Tarmons as, for one thing, he died there; secondly, his headstone in Murhur Cemetery reads:
"Erected by Margaret Mulvihill of East Tarmons in loving memory of her husband Jeremiah Mulvihill died 2 March 1897 aged 60.
Also her sister Ellen Mulvihill died 1896 aged 96".

Jeremiah's brother Edmund was married to Ellen Moore, sister of Jeremiah's wife, Margaret. I am told Jeremiah and Margaret had no children.
       
Jeremiah married Margaret MOORE, daughter of 'unknown' MOORE. Margaret died.
