I will be pulling some of my church records to check sponsor names, as the
Geraghty's are family of the Mulledy's in Gurteen and also of my Horse family
in Daroge just up the path away's from Ballymahon. Some of the Sponsor
names do sound familiar, but I will check.
Also, you mentioned some parents of John Lyons the mother named Bridget
Skelly. I was wondering were the parents Peter and Bridget also from the
Ballymahon area? The reason I ask is that my fifth g grandmother was a Skelly
from the Shrule area back in the late 1700's we don't know her first name
though one of my found cousins thinks it may have been Bridget (but not the one
you speak of).
As I mentioned I will get a letter off to my cousin and see if she know the
Eustace name, etc.

My cousin lives in Gurteen and I will inquire if she knows any Eustace
family or relations there. Our family has lived in Gurteen and Edera right next
door for many generations so they remember your family.
I will let you know what she says, unfortunately she does not have the
internet so I will need to use snail mail.
Good luck on your search,
Several Eustace families were in the Parish Ballymacormick area and are
mentioned in the Tithe Applotment Books as living in Townland Farnagh in
1833. Specifically; William and Patrick, Edward and James. Patrick
Eustace, Not necessarily the same Patrick, lived in Townland Collum,
Cashel Parish and married Catherine Cunningham. They had eleven children
between 1823 and 1844. Descendents of this family live in
Schuylerville/Victory Mills, New York. There were two Eustace families
living near Ballymahon at various times between the 1820s and 1901. Luke
Eustace and his wife Brigid Gibbons and their family were present at
least by 1822 and members of their family were still in the area at the
time of the 1901 census. They are listed in records or Gorteenclareen
(Gurteen) Townland located about four miles from Ballymahon. James
Eustace and Bridget Kennedy were present as early as 1830. Bridget's
burial record in 1848, connects the family to Townland Laragh located
between Ballymahon and Gorteenclareen. James Eustace and his son John,
born in 1833, emigrated as the Famine came to a close and joined
relatives at Schuylerville, Saratoga County, New York and later to
Mapleton, Wisconsin. Later John Eustice, son of James went to Minnesota
and settled at Janesville in 1869.
We are interested in any Eustace connections in County Longford.

My ggrandfather Malachy Kenny was married to Anne Hughes. They lived in the village of Drumlish, County Longford. They had 5 children that I know of, Anne (Annie) my grandmother, Bridget, Michael, Thomas & John. Bridget was born 1874 and married John Kellegher July 18, 1901in Drumlish. John was the son of Francis Kellegher & Mary McGarry. Bridget & John stayed in Drumlish, however several of their children emmigrated to the US. Their children were Patrick, Francis, John Malachy, Mary Anne & Bridget Teresa. My grandmother Annie Kenny also emmigrated to the US, first to Rhode Island & then to NYC where she me my grandfather Henry Wienges.
Do you think there is a connection?
My gg grandfather was James HUGHES who married Bridget KELEHER in Killoe/Longford about 1840. James and Bridget came to Providence RI about 1852. James and Bridget's daughter, Margaret Hughes married William Bowe, whose parents also came from Ireland.
Question: Does anybody have any connection to this Hughes/Keleher family?

This is my 1st posting to the list.
I am interested to locate any relatives of Luke O'HARA b: C.1808 Clonquish
and wife Ann(e) QUINN b: C.1826.
Luke was a member of the 89th Regiment who became a Chelsea out-pensioner
and settled in Hobart Tasmania, Australia in November 1850. Both people
died in Tasmania.
I have surfed through the Genuki information on Longford without luck.
Fingers crossed!!! but is there somebody who may be related to their Irish
families or can steer me in the right direction.
Many thanks in advance.

My paternal grandparents, Margaret CORCORAN of Bunlahy and Philip HOURICAN of Dunbeggan, m 1838 in Granard Parish; they had 12 children, all b in Ireland.
Their son Michael b 1841, m Anne BRIODY b 1848; she was on the Rathmore census of 1901. They had 2 children who m BRADYs.
Daughter Alice m Thomas BRIODY, who is listed as living in Leggagh on the 1901 census; two of their daughters m BRADYs.
Daughter Mary m Daniel MULLIGAN of Rosduff.
Daughter Catherine b 1856 m Thomas DUIGNAN of Dunbeggan (these are my paternal gr-parents); they had one son who m a BRADY.
Daughter Bridget m a BRADY.
Son Philip m a BRADY.
From my family research, I would say that BRIODY & BRADY are really interchangeable. Does anyone on the list know something different about this?

I am looking for Oliver Goldsmith's cousins of the Contarine family - or any
other family of the name Contarine. Oliver Goldsmith wrote letters to his
uncle, Thomas Contarine, and to his cousin Jane Contarine (Thomas
Contarine's daughter). I am looking, for instance, for any possible
brothers of this Thomas Contarine. My family includes a James Contarine
Daly, from Granard, Co. Longford, who was probably born sometime between
1779 and 1800, as he is mentioned as being a minor in 1801. James Contarine
Daly's parents were called John and Mary Daly, and his name suggests that
Mrs Mary Daly may have been Mary Contarine before she married. By the way,
is there any record that the Contarine family came to Co Longford from Wales
Thanks for any help you can offer. Best wishes, Brenda Morris
My great grandparents were: Briget Fealey and John Hughes of Longford.
They were married in 1874 and had 9 children. I am not sure if they
were from the part of Longford you referred to. The Hughes family is
still there as far as I know (Billy and Nan Hughes)

I am researching the following names, principally in the Granard
Longoford, some spilling over into Cavan...is anyone on the list
HUGHES, MULLIGAN, BRIODY

To find other Irish county web pages visit IGP:
My wife's great grandmother, Catherine (Leonard) CARROLL, b. abt. 1865,
gave her birth place as Longford, Ireland, in the 1891 census for Bacup,
Newchurch, Lancashire, England. Catherine and sister, Bridget, b. abt.
1863, in Ireland, were found as daughters in the household of Patrick
and Mary LEONARD in the 1881 census for Pemberton, Lancashire, England.
Patrick was a coal miner. In the 1891 census, Patrick's widow, Mary,
gave her birth place as Galway, Ireland. Since the family cannot be
found in the 1871 England census, I presume that they immigrated from
Ireland to England between 1871 and 1881.
In the IGI, I found a Catherine LEONARD, b. 11 Nov 1864 in Killashee,
Longford, Ireland to Patrick LEONARD and Mary CAGHLEN. Although not yet
proved, this seems the best current possibility to be my wife's great
Catherine's sister, Bridget, b. abt. 1863, might have been born just
prior to civil registration; however, she was probably christened in the
family's church, which I presume to be Roman Catholic.
Any information about this family is welcomed.
Hi fellow genies,
This is my first query to the list. I have checked its archives and
digested the information.
I am researching a Luke O'HARA b: C.1806 who married Ann QUIN(N) b: 1826
....don't know exactly when but before 1849.
Luke was a private in the 89th regiment of foot and seemed to be a Royal
Hospital Chelsea out pensioner who was discharged in 1847.
I have read all possible (via the net) about the regiment but am missing
where he could have married i.e. Ireland or England.
If by chance are there still O'Hara siblings descendants living in the
Clonguish area who could help me with any information of Luke or Ann?
Seems discharged/retired army men where encouraged to migrate to Hobart
Tasmania (previously known as Van Diemans Land in the 1840-1850's with the
promise of owning acreage in the Hobart and surrounding areas after 5 years
I would be very grateful for any slight 'piece' of information or direction
where to look for this person.
Many thanks for your help.

Have you tried the archives at Kew for Luke O'Hara's military records? It sounds as if perhaps you have, since you have some pension details, but, if not, you may be able to find out exactly where he served. You could then check church records for those areas in search of the place of marriage. (His age at the time of mustering in may give you an idea of the probability of his being married prior to joining the army or afterward.)
As for Irish record possibilities, the records for Clonguish, Newtownforbes, and Camagh (the cluster of applicable parishes) are reasonably complete on microfilm back to 1830, which are likely to cover both marriage and baptismal records for the O'Haras if these events took place in Luke's home area in Ireland. If you don't find anything there, I would also look at the records for Longford town (Ballymccormick and Templemichael), since Longford was a garrison town; Luke O'Hara may have been mustered in there.
