Timothy CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified) [Parents] was born in possibly about 1800s in Co. Limerick; or Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He died in probably Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Timothy married Mary GRIFFIN (caution: not verified).

Mary GRIFFIN (caution: not verified) died in date unknown. Mary married Timothy CUNNINGHAM (caution: not verified).

I am assuming, although I have no firm proof, that Mary was the wife of our Timothy Cunningham. I am basing my assumption on a baptismal record located for a Dermot Cunningham, son of a Timothy Cunningham and a Mary Griffin of Kilbaha, who was baptised on 26 November 1841 (the sponsor was Winifred Cunningham).


James HARRINGTON (Caution: relationship to parents not verified) [Parents] was born about 1830. He died in between 31 Mar 1901 and 2 Apr 1911 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. James married Johanna CUNNINGHAM on 19 Feb 1852 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I have been told that James Harrington above, husband of Johanna Cunningaham, may have come from Irremore, Listwel, Co. Kerry. Our Johanna's husband's name was definitely James Harrington and the Cunningham family of Kilbaha certainly had connections with Irremore in that a distant Cunningham cousin of Johanna's, Bishop John Francis Cunningham (who was a granduncle of the James Harrington of Irremore who we believe was married to our Johanna Cunningham), was born in Irremore and encouraged several members of Johanna's extended family to join him in Kansas to enter religious life. For these reasons I believe that Johanna's husband was the James Harrington from Irremore whose parents were John Harrington and Bridget Fitzgerald (a niece of Bishop Cunningham). I have, nevertheless, added a caution after James's name.

If Johanna's husband was in fact James Harrington, son of John Harrington and Bridget Fitzgerald, then Johanna may have been related to James as I believe that James's maternal grandmother, Margaret Cunningham, was blood-related to Johanna's family. Unfortunately I have been unable to find evidence that proves this.  

Note: A Mary Harrington of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry emigrated to the United States in 1899 aged 25, joining her brother (first name or initial illegible on manifest) at 374 Lexington Avenue in Brooklyn. Could Mary have been a daughter or granddaughter of James and Johanna?

Johanna CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born about 21 Nov 1823 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 23 Nov 1823 in Listowel, Co. Kerry. She died in between 31 Mar 1901 and 2 Apr 1911 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Johanna married James HARRINGTON (Caution: relationship to parents not verified) on 19 Feb 1852 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.
