Richard B. Kearney is my Great Great Grandfather on my my fathers mother's side. He was born in Cahir, Ballydrehid, Tipperary, Ireland. He was the son of James Kearney and Mary Bridget Baron. He had a brother James Kearney, who was married to Catherine (Kate) Houlihan. They lived in Cahir, Kilmoyler, Tipperary, Ireland and raised five (5) children. Bridget, Thomas, James, Robert and Johanna. Their family still live in the old Homestead. I have traveled to Cahir for my 50th Birthday and met with Robert Kearney and Johanna Peters daughter Breda Kearney in 2015.
My Great Grandfather fled Ireland and settled in Meriden, Connecticut. James and Rose Brady had seven (7) children. Mary Ann, Rose (my Great Grandmother), Catherine, Marie Helen, Josephine, James B Jr and Madelyn.
