Reddy Family

I am a complete loss.  As a result, this is a very broad request and simply a shot in the dark.

My gg-grandfather Richard Reddy (b. c.1817 - on headstone) emigrated from Ireland along with his brother Michael (b. c. 1818 - on headstone) and settled in West Hurley, New York, USA.  I do not know where the Reddys were from in Ireland.

Many of the Irish in West Hurley were from Kilkenny including O'Neills from Ballynamona, Cashins form Urlingford, Foleys from Bennettsbridge, etc.  I have concentrated on Kilkenny when looking for the Reddys, and they are mentioned whenever Graignamanagh comes up in my research.  

If anyone knows anything about Reddys in Graignamanagh, I would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks so much!

  • Hi Anne,

    I had a brief search but found nothing on the names mentioned. But the years are very early for Irish records. has a searchable database of Catholic Church records. There is a fee for using the site but it can be purchased on a daily, monthly or yearly basis.

    I wonder would a DNA be able to connect you with some of your Irish family. It may be able to narrow down the search on a location in Ireland.


    Best of luck with your search
