Patrick McCabe ane wife Elizabeth lived in Lisnahederna, a townland, close to Mullagh.  Elizabeth died in about 1904.  Patrick much earlier.  Luke Vincent and Michael James emigrated to Philadelphia where they were ordained priests.  Margaret and Mary likewise...however as single women housekeeping for their brothers. My own grandfather John Benedict emigrated in about 1880.

The only remaining was Patrick, son of Patrick, who married a woman named May; he kept the homestead with his wife and mother Elizabeth..Bessy.The home still stands in Lisnahederna.

  • Hi,  

    Yes Luke & Michael were ordained in Overbrook, for Philadelphia.  I have just googled Overbrook, see this link, next year the campus is celebrating 150 years, so I am unsure if it is the same place, but you could contact them.  Luke was ordained 1869 & Michael in 1892, their mother was Elizabeth Carolan.

    Regards Carmel O'allaghan
