Daniel (Dan) KEARNEY was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died before 27 Feb 1900. Daniel married Ellen CUNNINGHAM about 1850.

It is possible that Dan's parents were Daniel Kearney and Mary Enright as a baptismal record has been found on www.irishgenealogy.ie for a Daniel Cearney (sic) of Kilbeaha (sic) who was baptised on 1 March 1812. It is also possible that Dan was the Daniel Kearney of Kilbaha North as listed in Griffith's Valuation, carried out for the Kilbaha area in 1853. Daniel is the only Kearney listed for the whole of Kilbaha (North, South, West and Middle).

I have located a marriage record on www.irishgenealogy.ie for a Daniel Kearney and a Honora Cunningham who was from Kilbaha. The marriage took place on 8 February 1842. It probably doesn't relate to our Daniel and Ellen but it is woth noting in case there was a transcription error. Witnesses to this marriage were Miles Cunningham and Thomas Mulvihill.

Ellen CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born about 26 Apr 1825 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 28 Apr 1825 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Ellen married Daniel (Dan) KEARNEY about 1850.

They had the following children.

  F i Mary KEARNEY was born about 1850. She died after Apr 1917.
  M ii Patrick KEARNEY was born about 31 Jan 1851. He died in Apr or May 1917.
  F iii Honora KEARNEY (caution: not verified).
  F iv Margaret KEARNEY was born about 17 Mar 1853. She died after Apr 1917.
  M v Myles KEARNEY was born about 2 Aug 1855. He died on 10 Jan 1922.
  M vi Daniel KEARNEY was born about 2 Aug 1855.
  F vii
Ellen KEARNEY was born about 22 Jun 1860 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 24 Jun 1860 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Ellen's baptismal sponsors were Jeremiah Mulvihill and Honora Healy.
  M viii Michael (Mike) KEARNEY was born about 12 Feb 1863. He died about 1931.
  F ix Johanna (Joan) KEARNEY was born about 4 Apr 1865. She died after 29 Jun 1935.

Daniel KEARNEY [Parents] was born about 2 Aug 1855 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 4 Aug 1855 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Daniel married Ellen 'UNKNOWN'.

Sponsors at Daniel's baptism were James Thornton and Mary Mulvihill.

Ellen 'UNKNOWN' was born about 1865. Ellen married Daniel KEARNEY.

It is possible that Ellen's surname may have been Slattery because a Daniel Kearney of Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry married an Ellen Slattery of Listowel, Co. Kerry on 23 February 1895 in Listowel.


John (Johnny) HOLLY [Parents] was born about 1912 in Tarmons Hill, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died on 4 Mar 1991. He was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. John married Bridget (Pidge) KEARNEY "Pidge".

Johnny and his wife, Pidge, ran a grocery shop and hackney business in Moyvane village.

Patrick (Pat) O'CONNOR [Parents] was born about 1833 in Shronebeirne, Duagh, Co. Kerry. He died after 2 Apr 1911. Patrick married Ann (Nance) CUNNINGHAM on 19 Dec 1866 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

After their marriage, Pat and Nance lived in Kilbaha - they were immediate neighbours of Nance's brother, Bryan.

There are 1901 and 1911 census returns from Kilbaha North for Pat's household. The 1901 returns give the following information:

Patrick (67), head
Thomas (31), son
Mary (28), daughter
James (26), son
Nora (22), daughter
John (19), son

In 1911, Pat is listed along with his son Thomas and daughter, Mary. It is possible that Thomas and Mary never married.

Kevin O'Connor from Kent has provided information on Pat's family: Pat's father's name was Thomas O'Connor and his mother's last name was Brosnan. Besides Pat, Thomas had five other children that we know of: Mary, born in 1827; James (Kevin's great-grandfather), born in 1828 who went to farm in Meenahorna, Duagh; Thomas who farmed at Shronebeirne; John T. who moved to Farranpierce in the parish of Killehenny; and Denis who emigrated to the United States. Kevin has put his family history together in a book 'The Descendants of the O'Connors of Carrigafoyle Stemming from the Datheenachs Line' (2006). Besides  the O'Connors, other families covered in Kevin's work include the Brosnans of Shronebeirne, the Byrnes of Coolanelig in Duagh, the Keanes of Ballygrennan in Finuge, and many more. For further information contact Kevin at kevin@oconnor4488.fsworld.co.uk.

Ann (Nance) CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She died before 31 Mar 1901. Ann married Patrick (Pat) O'CONNOR on 19 Dec 1866 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

Marriage Notes:

The marriage was witnessed by Michael Hanrahan of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry.

The above information, along with the marriage date of 19 December 1866, come from microfilm copies of Moyvane parish registers held in the National Library of Ireland. However, on the Ancestry website the date of marriage is given as 19 February 1867.

They had the following children.

  M i
Thomas O'CONNOR was born about 22 May 1868 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 24 May 1868 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Thomas's baptism were James Connor and Johanna Cunningham.
  M ii
Myles O'CONNOR was born about 22 Oct 1869 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 24 Oct 1869 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He died in possibly U.S..

Sponsors at Myles's baptism were Daniel Kearney and Margaret Kearney.

Myles emigrated to the United States in 1899. It is thought that he lived initially in Poughkeepsie where he had a cousin (on the ship manifest, the cousin's name looks like Mary Lally of St. Mary's Church, Church St. Poughkeepsie) and later moved to New Jersey. It seems he subsequently lost contact with his family.
  F iii
Mary O'CONNOR was born on 4 May 1871 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 13 May 1871 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were John Connor and Ellen Sheehy.
  M iv
James O'CONNOR was born on 29 Dec 1873 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 Jan 1874 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry.

James's baptismal sponsors were John Connor and Margaret Thornton.

Unfortunately we have no further information on James.
  F v Johanna (Josie) O'CONNOR was born on 28 Dec 1875. She died on 29 Apr 1961.
  F vi Honora (Nora) O'CONNOR was born on 27 Apr 1878. She died on 29 Apr 1959.
  M vii
John O'CONNOR was born on 13 Aug 1881 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 13 Aug 1881 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly U.S..

John's baptismal sponsors were Daniel Kearney and Mary Cunningham.

According to Ellis Island records, John emigrated to the United States in September 1906. He was headed for San Francisco to join his sister Josie. The only other information we have about John is that he was naturalised in Spokane, Washington in 1916.

'unknown' MOORE (caution: not verified) was born in Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly before 2 Apr 1911. 'unknown' married Mary CUNNINGHAM.

It is thought by one family source that Myles's daughter Mary married a Pat O'Sullivan from Knockbawn (in Co. Kerry?) and that they emigrated to the United States where Pat was killed in a railway accident in the course of his work. However, other family sources believe Mary married a Mr. Moore (possibly named James) from Aughrim.

There is a record (on www.irishgenealogy.ie) of the marriage of a Mary Cunningham from Newtownsandes to a James Moore from Listowel on 28 May 1874, but the name of Mary's father on the register is John, not Myles. Furthermore Mary would have been 42 years of age in May 1974 so it is unlikely that this record relates to the marriage of our Mary.

Perhaps Mary married twice, marrying Pat O'Sullivan first and later marrying Mr. Moore.

If our Mary did indeed marry a Mr. Moore from Aughrim, then it is likely she lived with her niece Margaret Moore (née Mulvihill) in Aughrim towards the end of her life as there is a Mary Moore, aged 81 and widowed, listed in the 1911 census return of Margaret and her husband, Patrick Moore.

Mary CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born about 4 Oct 1832 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 6 Oct 1832 in Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. She died in possibly after 2 Apr 1911 in possibly Aughrim, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Mary married 'unknown' MOORE (caution: not verified).

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were James Cunningham and Mary Woulf.
