Hudson Photos

John and Denis McEnery


Brothers John (on left) and Denis McEnery were born in Tubbertureen, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry - in 1872 and 1882 respectively - to Michael McEnery of Tubbertureen and Mary Hudson of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes.

John and Denis had nine siblings, six of whom survived to adulthood. The eldest two, Tom and Mary (shown in the previous two photos), emigrated to Australia. John (pictured) and his sister Hannah lived New York. Although this photo of John and Denis was probably taken in the U.S., Denis did not actually live there. He visited from Ireland at least twice and this picture was probably taken on one of those trips. Strangely, although Denis was younger than John by 10 years, he looks older in this photo. Of their remaining surviving siblings, Edmund and Jeremiah farmed in Tubbertureen, as did Denis himself; and Bridget married John O’Sullivan and lived in either Co. Kerry or Co. Limerick.

John married Maria Cregan from Co. Limerick and they had three children. Denis married Mary (Ciss) Egan from Tarbert, Co. Kerry and they had a family of 10.
