My name is Kevin Leahy and my family comes from Mitchelstown. I have done all my DNA tests and included is the big y at FTDNA. I have many Lee men a fairly close match. What is your Ancestry name and i will check to see if we share Autosomal DNA there.
My Ancestry name is Dan Lee. I think that I have identifired my Great-grandfather's birth in Labbamolage, Co. Cork in 1847. I have not been able to verify any relatives from the area, thriugh DNA. My Great-grandfather's name was Patrick Lee. My Y DNA is M222 DF109 according to Living DNA.
I appreciate any help that you can provide.
I have a Patrick Lee (b 1833) married a Mary O'Donnell (b 1825) from Anglesborough which is not far from Labbamolage. They had at least 3 children - Ellen, Mary and Johanna All born in South Carolina.
My Ancestry name is Patrick Clifford
I have been busy, checked ancestry and no match to me there
Ancestry has a match for me, Richard Lee. His ancestor is Patrick Lee, b. 17 Mar 1843 Gurtmagrough County Galway, Ireland. This is not my great-grandfather, because he settled in Wisconsin, and my great-grandfather settled in Philadelphia. I need to look at birth records for Gurtmagrough, Co. Galway Ireland for a cousin. I thought for sure my great-grandfather was born in Cork, from my memory of family history.
My great great great grandmother was Mary Lee. She married James Keane of Labbamalogga and had two sons Thomas born 1826 and John my great great grandfather born 1834, died 1882.I wil research Mary Lee further by viewing the NLI.ie records from Mitchelstown church records.

There were several Lee Baptisms from Labbamolaga in 1826. One was William Lee, parents were Robert Lee and Mary Kenedy, sponsors were Thomas Lee and Bridget Kenedy. William could have been my GG-grandfather. Other Baptisms were Timothy Mulcahy, Robert Lee and Ellen Lee were sponsors, and Richard Lee, parents Thomas Lee & Margaret Molan, sponsors Daniel Lee & Catherine Lee.
