Johnson

Heffernan
John Heffernan
Searching for my gr,gr,gr grandfather Timothy Heffernan. Appears once on the US census 1860 with sons James b.1824, William b.1828, Thomas b.1822 and Patrick b.1842 along with his wife Ann. Son John b.1812 (per his tombstone in Texas) and Patrick b.1818 were not on the 1860 census. Obviously, Timothy b. 1780-1790s and Ann b. 1790 – 1800 were not using their true given names. I am in the Heffernan DNA project and I am trying to trace back to Ireland. The sons of Timothy all seem to have come to Texas. Timothy possibly is related (maybe brothers) to John and James Heffernan b. 1780-1790 and John Ryan (their cousin,also same birth range) who came to Beeville, Texas in 1829. All three plus John’s wife and children, were killed by the Mexican army. They received land grants in exchange for signing up to fight the Texas-Mexican war. They all died in 1836. But the flow of Heffernans in Texas did not stop. Thank you for any help you can give. John Scott Heffernan

Fenton
Deborah Budd
My gg grandfather, John Fenton was born in Passase West, Co. Cork in 1819-mariner-(Falmouth, Casey Carroll

Patrick Casey
I did extensive research in my family tree and have yet to let anyone down in their search (& I am very hard on myself accepting facts). My paternal great grandfather Daniel Casey b. 1842 in Lackabane townland, Donoughmore County Cork married Margaret Carroll b 1859 NYC. Her brother John Carroll was one time Deputy Leader of Tammany Hall. Their parents were Patrick Carroll b. 1823 County Limerick & Mary Roche b. 1829 Doneraile, Cork. Would love more info on them. My grandfather George Casey was a NYC detective that married a Marjorie Hughes b. 1897 NYC. Her parents were Peter Hughes b. 1865 in Tellehan Parish, Leitrim Townland, County Monaghan, and came to NYC in 1890. His parents were John Hughes & Lizzie Mucklin…there are lots of Hughes in Leitrim, I probably still have kin there. Peter married my great grandmother Margaret Duffy b. 1864 Patrick Duffy & Mary Duffy…I believe also from Couny Cork, would love innfo on them. My materanl grandmother Mary Wrenn was born in NYC 1903 to David Wreen & Margaret Young, both from Rathekeale, County Limerick although they married in NYC. David’s parents were David Wrenn & Mary Histon. Margaret’s parents were George Young, a famous dance innstructor, and Katherine O’Brien. The only hole in my family tree I dream of getting info on is my materal grandfather, Patrick Kehoe. Records I find listed him as Irish although he was born in Bonne Bay, Newfoundland in a fishing community called St. Joseph’s Cove that his father helped found. His parents were Thomas Kehoe (sometime interchanged throughout his life witht he spelling Keough) and Catherine Elizabeth Fogarty. I recieved a certificate of achivement from some Newfoundland geneaologist applauding my success in finding Thomas Kehoe’s parents where they failed. His parents were James Kehoe b. 1832 & Mary Moxley b. 1830, both in Carbonear Newfoundland. They married in 1857 in St. Patrick’s Parish there. I believe his parents were John Kehoe & Mary Power. My trail runs dry there. Most believe the patriarch of the Kehoe’s in Newfoundland came from County Wexford. They say Newfoundland it the most irish place outside Ireland, many came there from Eire because the fare was less expensive. Catherine Elizabeth Fogarty’s parents were Patrick Fogarty & Mary Kennedy, also from Bonne Bay & Carbonear.

Kenny Delany
Anne Kinney-Morstad
Looking for descendants of Thomas Kenny and Mary Delany.  My g-g-grandfather was their son David Kenny who emigrated to the US.  The Kennys are from the township of Doonamontane, in the parish of Ballyheigue in County Kerry.  From other family who have visited the area, I know that Bride Harrington was the niece of David Kenny.
