Genealogy: Healy / Sweeney

My Healy Great Grandparents had a farm in Millstreet, My Grandmother Margaret Healy left the farm in the 1920′s and came to New York.

Does anyone know of a Denis and Margaret SWEENEY HEALY FARM IN Millstreet.T? We were in Millstreet a few years ago but could not find it. The children went to the Coulhabeg School and there were about 18 children, Any help would be great.Thanks a million, Chris Kennedy. <email>

Genealogy: Greetings from Connecticut

Greetings from Stamford, Connecticut, USA! I am proud to say that my ancestors lived in Millstreet at least as early as the 1830′s and probably long before that. My great-great-grandfather John Murphy married Ellen Curtin in Millstreet parish in 1858. Their daughters Mary and Margaret went to the US in the 1880′s, son Daniel went to NZ, and daughter Ellen (Nellie) and sons Patrick and Daniel (Twins) and John, I have no idea what happened to them. Margaret disliked America and came back to Ireland; she and Nellie ran a guesthouse in Cork city at 8 Kings Terrace, that still stands, from at least 1910 on.

Would love to find out if there are any Murphys and Curtins still living in Millstreet whose roots go back to the 1830′s. Better still would be to find living cousins!

From photos I can see that your area is beautiful, and I hope to come visit soon.
