  • Is the family home in Knocknagappul near the Wedge Tomb?. I am somehow connected to this family. Trying to figue it all out. I visited with Mrs Cotter about 5 years ago, is connected to my Cronin family that emmigrated to Connecticut. I am returning there again in a few weeks, this time with more knowlegde (hopefully!)

  • Hi Kathy,

    Yes I believe the family homestead is in that area but I don't believe there is any settlement to view these days.  My attempt with these various Twohig families was to attempt to link them to my My Mother in Law.  She was hoping to unearth her Grandfather's Birth Place.  If you are over it would be great to meet up and compare notes or if there is some way I can help and try clarify your connection please give me any details you might have and will see what I can do.  The Twohigs in the Ballinagree area went under 4 or 5 different appendiges.  There were the "Dan" Twohigs, the "Den" Twohigs, The "Johnny" Twohigs, etc.  The Family Tree Report I have above can be viewed at from this context.  The descendents of say Denis Twohig and Daniel Twohig would have been referred to in this manner.  Good luck with your continued search and as I said if I can be of any assistance please let me know.

  • I can find the property that I visited on current property maps on Landdirect.ie , and correlate to Griffiths map (FindMyPast)  https://search.findmypast.com/record?id=OR%2FGRIFF%2FMAPS%2F5105&parentid=OR%2FGRIFF%2FMAP-PLAN%2F1669028 The current homes are within a larger (7B) on Griffiths map. 

     Griffiths lists John and Jeremiah Tuohig in same townland https://www.findmypast.com/search/results?_page=9&datasetname=griffith%27s%20valuation%201847-1864&townland=knocknagappul

    I would like to attach the image but cant seem to on this post. If you contact me at kellslax@aol.com I can send you what I have.

    I believe that my connected Cronins were at Rylane Cross, married into the Twohig line and my current contact is Cotter. I have an older cousin (90's) that I need to ask a few more questions before I leave! She had visited this farm many years ago.

    The Cronin connection to me is through cousins. My great grandmother Margaret Cronin was from Aghabullogue (Derryroe), b. Apr 1863 daughter of Denis Cronin and Mary Greany. My great grandfather James B Crowley, from Dripsey,  had a sister Mary, she married a Denis Cronin that is connected to the Knocknagappul family. The Cronins get me so confused! Too many Daniel, Denis and John to follow.

    Thanks- Kathy
