  • Well this could be my Hennessy's or not?  Can you find out where he immigrated to?  Is Patrick related to John Hennessy and Michael Hennessey (spelled with an "ey"?

  • Hi Kathy,

    Patrick Hennessy immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts in 1839. He then went to Providence, Rhode Island along with his five other brothers (James, Bartholomew, John - and possibly Michael and William as well as his father, James (1787-1862). In 1859, Patrick left Providence, RI for Washington County, Arkansas. He became a highly successful farmer of the Civil War and Reconstruction Era. 

    His descendants live in the Southern US. He was my third great granduncle. His brother, John (1820-1902) was my third great grandfather.

    What do you think is your connection to Patrick, or the Hennessy family for that matter?

    Curiously, I have found that the spelling ("ey" vs "y" is irrelevant) My grandmother had two uncles who argued over this! One spelled it Hennessy, the other, Hennessey...
