This is John Loughnane (1848-1892), second son of Denis Loughnane (1819-1897) and Catherine Donohue (1829?-1901) married Oct.1846.

As far as I know they (Denis and Catherine)married in Templederry, Co. Tipperary but lived mostly in Reiskmore, Toomevara, Co. Tipperary, Nenagh poor union, upper Ormond, Ballymackey. I think it was Kilalloe Parish, and I have a news clipping that Catherine was brought to Ballinree Church for service and burial. Denis died of throat cancer.

I believe there were 7 or 8 children, at least, I believe John was oldest, with a James next (Rev James who eventually was Administrator in Co. Clare, Newmarket on Fergus, in one of their Catholic churches there). John came to US, Hartford CT and married my great grandmother Anne Shea (1857-1936 - from Nenagh, Tipperary). They had 4 or 5 children. Within 18 mos.period of time or less, John died, a baby died, and a 7 yr.old son died. Anne ended up with two daughters, Catherine and Mary(Molly) my grandmother. I believe John worked in a book store or something like that, and Anne worked as a housekeeper/servant for years and then eventually ran a boarding house.
