3 lines of joiners, looking to know where they may have originated from before coming to Kilcorney.

John Pat (1935) son of Timothy (1895) m Margaret Cronin, son of John (1866) m Catherine Linehan (any information on her location would be appreciated) and possibly son of John Sean Nora?!

    Many Thanks for your reply. Just so I understand correctly was it John Cronin's mother who was also Cronin? And if so who was (& Cornelius Kelleher)?  
     

     

    Best Wishes,

  • There is a marriage for William  Swiney & Mary Cronin in Macroom 1800. Mary Cronin's parents were John Cronin & Mary Murry. My John Sweeny was born 1809 Knockopil to William & Mary (Cronin). John Sweeny wife's mother was Margaret Keleher. The three men: John Cronin, John Sweeny & Cornelius Keleher are listed together on the Griffiths.  Now there is a record for a Cornelius Cronin born to John Cronin & Julia Tobin of Knockraheen in 1808. My John Sweeny was born 1809 so John Cronin most likely was an Uncle or possibly the grandfather.  Now I don't know if the Cornelius Keleher listed on the Griffths is the same listed as the father of Daniel Keleher (1829) mother Mary Ryan but they all seem to be working the Massey land.

  • I may have misunderstood your inquiry; I thought you were asking for suggestions on where to focus your research. My response to your posting was only a suggestion that you consider Clondrohid as a possible point of origin, since there were a cluster of Cronins & Kehelers there in the early 1800’s. I only provided my family research as an illustration of the intertwining of Cronins & Kehelers, I was not suggesting a connection.

  • Gee Liz, it looks like I have a distant cousin DNA match to your Margaret Kelleher so maybe your Cronin & Kellehers are connected to mine. I suggest you look in the Clondrohid & Aghabulloge areas.

  • Great! do you have a gedmatch number so I can have a look at our common matches also- I have  established Cronin matches so it might narrow it down Reets thanks Liz and where might I find a tree for you?
