Mary J Vaughan

Looking for information on Mary J Vaughan ( Mohan/ Maughn) born about 1855 in Clifden.  She married Valentine Carroll in 1874 or so and had son Patrick in 1875.  they then emmigrated to Boston.  Have not been able to find a birth certificate for Mary - her parents appear to be Festus Vaugn & Anne Conneely.  I also do not have any information about her sibblings

    I responded to your prior message on Mary Vaughan/Mohan with father Festus but can't locate the message. Do you know if the message was deleted?

    I remembered the family was from Faul townland in Moyrus civil parish. Here is Anne Conneely in the 1901 census

    Mary had a brother Patrick baptized in Clifden on October 25 1853 with father Festus Vaughan and mother Anne Coneela with sponsors John Coneela and Honor Coneela.

    Looks like there are other siblings where the mother was shown as Anne Vaughan rather than Anne Conneely.

  • hi Roger- I did not see the other reply.   this is great information.  looks like there was also a brother John.   the Conneely/ Coneela etc names are tough to follow but I guess so is Vaughan/ Mohan.  thank you for this info and please feel free to share anything else you may locate.   I am going to try and dig some more.    Appreciate it!!!   Karen

    I think you may need to sign-up for a short-term subscription to Roots Ireland to try to unscramble two or three families all with a father named Festus Vaughan. There is one in Faul and anotheralso in Clifden parish and then a third in Ballyconneely RC parish with. I think your family is in Faul.

    I found a number of Vaughan baptismal records but some showed a mother Annie Vaughan and others Conneely or a variant spelling.

    I would stick to Clifden records. The second family was in Ballyconneela RC parish.

    For the Faul family there were triplets  Thomas, Anne and Bridget baptized March 25 1873   

    John June 11 1864 

     Anthony March 11 1871

    Honor February 28 1864 NOTE John and Honor 3 months apart. That is why I question if there were two families in Clifden.

    Martin March 10 1861

    Daniel October 10 1858

    I know this is confusing. Let me know if you have questions.
