I AM INDEBTED TO DAN MORAHAN OF PINE, COLORADO FOR ALL HIS HELP WITH MY MORAHAN RESEARCH.

Sponsors at Michael's baptism were William O'Hara and Mary Ellen Doyle.

Michael worked on the railroads in Ireland and England prior to emigrating to the United States where from 1903 to 1948 he worked as an locomotive engineer with Chicago, Burlington & Quincy in Lincoln, Nebraska. Michael returned to Ireland in 1910 in Ireland to marry Emily Logan. The following month Michael returned to Lincoln and Emily lived with her in-laws until she joined her husband in the United States a year later. According to the ship manifest, Michael lived at the time at 33 S. 10th St., Lincoln.

Michael and Emily later moved to Denver, Colorado, where Michael worked for Colorado Southern. He was engineer on the first diesel engine used by Colorado Southern in Colorado.

Note: Michael had a cousin named Patrick Mullany who lived in New York City in 1910. According to Ellis Island records Michael was going to join Patrick in New York prior to his return to Nebraska. It is possible that Michael may have been related to Patrick through his aunt, Ellen O'Hara, who was married to a Patrick MULLEANY. Perhaps Ellen and Patrick had a son named Patrick who emigrated to the United States. There is another MULLEANY connection in that Patrick O'Hara who was Ellen's first cousin once removed was married to a Mary Jane Mulleany.

Michael married Emily Marion LOGAN, daughter of John Joseph LOGAN and Anne (Annie) Josephine MCPARTLAND, on 7 Sep 1910 in St. Patrick's Church, Galway. Emily was born on 22 May 1884 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 1 Jun 1884 in Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She died on 7 Jul 1966 in Denver, Colorado. She was buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Golden, Colorado.

Sponsors at Emily's baptism were John McHugh and and Honora Connaughton.

It is known that Emily and Joseph were somehow related. The connection seems to be through the Meehans: Emily's grandfather on her father's side married a Winifred Meehan who, it is thought, was closely related to (perhaps a sister of) Ellen Meehan who was Michael's grandmother on his mother's side. If Winifred and Ellen were indeed sisters, this would have made Emily and Michael second cousins.

Emily used to sign her name as Emily Maurine Morahan so it is possible that her middle name may have been Maurine rather than Marion.  

Emily died in the Mercy Hospital in Denver.

They had the following children.

  118 F i
Florence Camilla MORAHAN was born on 18 Jul 1912 in Lincoln, Nebraska. She died on 9 Feb 2003 in Westminster, Colorado. She was buried on 15 Feb 2003 in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Golden, Colorado.

Florence worked as an industrial nurse for the Denver Tramway Company.

Frank was a master electrician and served as a medic in the U.S. Army during World War II.
+ 121 M iv Lawrence (Larry) Patrick MORAHAN was born on 2 May 1921. He died on 22 Feb 1987.
  122 M v
Gerald Thomas MORAHAN was born on 15 Sep 1926 in West Byron Place, Denver, Colorado. He died on 4 Jun 1998 in Michigan. He was buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Golden, Colorado (Dominican plot).

Gerald  was ordained a priest  in the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) in 1952 in Dubuque, Iowa. His religious name was Bertrand and he spent his entire ministry working in parishes, beginning at St. Margaret Parish, Boyce, Louisiana. In 1956 he was assigned to St. Vincent Ferrer parish, River Forest, Illinois, and in 1958 he was sent to Holy Name parish, Kansas City, Missouri. In 1970 he returned to St. Vincent Ferrer parish, where he spent the next 13 years, after which he began ministry at a new parish, St. Gertrude's, in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. He served there as an associate pastor until his death 15 years later.

61. Bridget Linda (Linda) MORAHAN (Owen MORAHAN , Mary BERTRIDGE , Catherine ) was born in Mar 1883 in Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 19 Mar 1883 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died on 30 Apr 1958 in Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Roscommon. She was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Roscommon.

This picture of Linda was taken on the occasion of her engagement. She married Joe Molloy in July 1918 so it is likely the photo was taken in 1917.

Note: Cyril Mattimoe, a relative of Joe's, did extensive research into the Molloy family in the late 1970s and late 1980s. In his notes, alongside a reference to the marriage of Linda and Joe, is a mention of the marriage in 1849 of an Edward Molloy and an Anna Morahan. There is no further refernce to Edward or Anna in Cyril's notes so we cannot tell if they were related to Joe or Linda. This needs to be looked into.

Bridget married Joseph (Joe) Kevin MOLLOY, son of Martin MOLLOY and Anne SIMON, on 8 Jul 1918 in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. Joseph was born on 2 Jun 1878 in Ballyfermoyle, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died on 10 Apr 1948 in Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Roscommon. He was buried in Ardcarne Cemetery, Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Roscommon.

Joe was one of a family of 19 children (five from his father's first marriage and 14 from his second). According to his marriage record, Joe was a farmer and was living at the time in Derrynargon, Carrick-on-Shannon.

Joe and Linda left Derreenargon around 1940 and moved to a farm in Hollymount, Carrick-on-Shannon.
