Hi, I am trying  to find any connection with the Kealy/Byrne family of Borris Carlow.

James Kealy married Johanna Byrne: 20 Feb 1873; Myshall district; Carlow; James liv Knockandrain; Witness: Henry Lucas and Margaret Kinsella

I'm not sure when James died but I believe Johanna died in childbirth 1883, aged 35.

Their known children so far :

Andrew                   4 Jan    1874 (poss d1875)

Catherine/Kathleen:      9 Aug   1875 (twin)      

Ellen:                           9 Aug   1875 (twin)      

Mary Ann/Maria:         2 Dec   1876                

James:              Bapt     29 Dec 1878   

Patrick:                        15 Apr 1880               

Margaret:      July-Sept  1883 (d1884)

I know from the 1901 Census that some of the children were living   5 Cashel Kiledmona    Carlow

Patrick             20        farmer              single 

Katie                24        farmers dau      single

Ellie                 24        farmers dau      single

Maria               22        farmers dau      single – went to states after 1901 poss 1903 ship Ivernia to New York

My main interest is Catherine/Kathleen. She married my gt grandfather John Ruxton Weir in Dublin Mar 1908. Days after the marriage they travelled to New York to Catherine/Kathleen's sister Mary. In Apr 1909 John is in England marrying my gt grandmother Sarah Ruxton. John left his family (which included my grandmother) in the early 1920s and was never heard from or seen again. I found his death in Glasgow 1930. With him was his wife Kathleen Weir nee Kealy?????

Any help at all tracing the Kealy family that will hopefully answer the many questions I have regarding Catherine/Kathleen and John will be wonderful and very much appreciated.
