I am new to this group but am confirmed to be a direct descendent of Michael Cuffe and Mary Cafferkey who lived in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  Looking forward to connecting with others.  Fiona McNamara

    Unfortunately I couldn't find any Cuffes or Cafferkeys in the irish phone book.

    Howver here's a copy of the marriage record from www.rootsireland.ie/ which has the fathers' names:

    THEY WERE MARRIED IN THE CHAPEL OF KILCOMMON ERRIS BY THOMAS DOLPHIN.

    Do you need further assistance to go back further from Michael & Mary?

  • Thanks ColCaff -  I have seen that record and believe I found evidence that John Cuffe married Bridget Cafferkey ( parents of Michael Cuffe). And John Cafferkey married Ellen ( parents of Mary Cafferkey). But I don't have a maiden name for Ellen.  Any suggestions are certainly welcome.  Fiona
