Garrett ROCHE died. Garrett married Catherine (Kit) HENNESSY.

From Jan Fortado in Massachussets, a great-great-great-granddaughter of Garrett's brother, Richard, we have some information on the Roche family:

Garrett and his brothers, Richard and Paddy, were from the townland of Flemingstown in the parish of Kilgullen in Co. Cork. It is thought that they could have had more siblings. Garrett, Richard and Paddy were very close. It is believed that Richard was the eldest - he was born about 1775, and Garrett was born possibly in the late 1790s. Richard married Kit Farrell, Garrett married Kit Hennessy, and Paddy married Moll Luddy.

Catherine (Kit) HENNESSY died. Catherine married Garrett ROCHE.

They had the following children.

James GORDON [Parents] was born about 24 Aug 1822 in Tibohine (Fairymount), Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 26 Aug 1822. He died on 20 Jul 1895 in Kilgarriff, Co. Roscommon. James married Catherine DUFFY on 5 Feb 1855 in Loughglynn, Co. Roscommon.

Cormac Gordon, a great-grandson of James, has told me that he had a number of Gordon relatives who were Sisters of Charity nuns who worked in the Harlem area of Manhattan up until the 1960s. Unfortunately I have been unable to find any further information on them.

It is known that a Gordon family with a son named Cormac was living in West Hempstead, Long Island, New York in the 1980s and '90s. The Cormac/Gordon name combination seems to be unique to our particular Gordon family so I am wondering if this West Hempstead family is connected to us. The only other information I have on this family is that Cormac has siblings named Rory, Patrick, Tara, Shannon and Deirdre.

Catherine DUFFY died before 20 Jul 1895 in probably Kilgarriff, Co. Roscommon. Catherine married James GORDON on 5 Feb 1855 in Loughglynn, Co. Roscommon.
