Descendants of 'unknown' TREACY (to contribute information, please email

Second Generation

2. 'unknown' TREACY (male) ('unknown' ) was born in about 1760s. He died in probably Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary.

'Unknown' above lived in the parish of Soloheadbeg (also spelled Solloghodbeg) in Co. Tipperary. It is a possibility that 'unknown' was named Thomas because it appears that his two sons, John and (probably) Nicholas, named their first-born sons Thomas, probably following the tradition at the time of naming the eldest son after the paternal grandfather.

There is an entry in the Title Applotment Books of 1824 for a Thomas Treacy of the townland of Glebe in the parish of Solloghodbeg. Could this Thomas be 'unknown' above?

'unknown' married 'UNKNOWN'. 'UNKNOWN' died.

They had the following children.

+ 5 M i John TREACY was born in possibly about 1787. He died in possibly 21 Feb 1848.
+ 6 M ii Nicholas TREACY (caution: not verified) was born about 1805. He died on 25 Mar 1848.

3. 'unknown' TREACY (male) (caution: relationship to siblings not verified) ('unknown' ) was born in about 1760s.

He had the following children.

+ 7 M i John TREACY was born about 1800.

4. Mary Margaret TREACY (caution: relationship to siblings not verified) ('unknown' ) was born about 1770.

I know of Margaret's existence from an Ancestry public family tree, discovered because I was found to be DNA-matched by Ancestry with a descendant of Margaret's. As I have Treacy ancestors who lived in Soloheadbeg, close to Oola, Co. Limerick where Margaret and her family lived, the connection appears to be through the Treacy family. The type of DNA match suggests that Margaret was a close relative of her (possible) siblings, and her approximate year of birth ties in with those of her (possible) siblings, so I have placed her as a sister of theirs. However, she may have beeen a first cousin or theirs rather than a sibling, or another type of relative, or she may not be connected to them at all. I have therefore added a caution beside her name.

Mary married Thomas REAL. Thomas was born about 1770 in Co. Limerick.

Patrick REAL was born about 1814 in Oola, Co. Limerick. He died about 1865 in Reeltown, Alabama.

James died in Reeltown, Alabama so presumably he was resident there. The Wikipedia entry for Reeltown tells us that "the 'Reel' in Reeltown is a misspelling of 'Real' from the last name of settlers James Patrick and Phillip O'Real. The town was called Thaddeus from 1880 to 1902 in honor of postmaster Thaddeus P. Webster. The name changed back to Reeltown in 1902". Was Reeltown named after Patrick above and his brother James, or relatives of theirs?
Patrick married Mary Ann BRITT. Mary was born about 1830 in Georgia. She died in 1900 in Elmore, Alabama.
