My gggrandmother, Ellen Flahive, is said to be from Tralee or Ballyheigue. Born about 1843 and parents may be Patrick Flahive and Catherine Sullivan.  She was a "tailoress" who immigrated to the US in 1869.  Married Patrick Ivers in Buffalo in 1869 and lived in Eldred PA the rest of her life  Died in 1892 while husband Patrick was on a trip back to Ireland.  When her daughter Kathryn was interviewed on her 90th birthday, she said her mother came from Tralee.  Looking for any connections or information avaialble as we are going to be in Ballyheigue in July of this year.  I will post a photo of Ellen.

  • Parents names for Ellen were on her marriage license in the state of New York in 1869 so likely to be correct.  At tht time last name was spelled Flahave.  First daughter was named Kathryn, which supports this name as well.  I am broadening my search for parents with these names.
