Second Generation

2. John FINUCANE (John ) was born in probably Ardmore, Carhoonakineely, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died in U.S..

There is a Griffith's Valuation (1851/52) entry for a John Finucane who, with a Daniel Finucane, leased a house and 11 acres in Carhoonakineely from a Richard Hinde Esq. Could the John in Griffith's Valuation be our John above? It is perhaps unlikely since our John emigrated to the United States as a young man. The only other Finucane to occupy land in Carhoonakineely at the time was a Patrick Finucane who, with a Thomas Quinn, leased a house and garden of one acre from Mr. Hinde.

John married Hanoria (Norrie) HANNAN, daughter of 'unknown' HANNAN and 'UNKNOWN'. Hanoria died in U.S..

Norrie and John married young, the parents of both objecting to the marriage. The couple lived in Listowel, Co.
