Genealogy: John Healy and Margaret Hinchin

Hello, I was hoping someone had information on my gggrandparents John Healy and Margaret Hinchin. Both born around 1832 in Cork. Their children were born in Cullen Cork and lived in Millstreet for a while.
Margaret’s father was Daniel Hinchin b. about 1804 her mother was Margaret Ahern b. about 1804. Margaret had sisters born in Keale, Johanna, Abina. John Healy had sisters, Ellen and Hannah. All the siblings born in the 1830’s.
Margaret Hinchin died in Keale, Cork in 1901.

  3. My name is Sondra Kelley (Zahn) Daughter of John Zahn, who is the Son of Margaret Mary Evans, Daughter of Nellie Agnes Osullivan BIRTH 13 APR 1884 β€’ Lauragh, Kerry, Ireland, Daughter of Johanna Healy & Daniel O’Sullivan ….. I’ve been searching for the Parents of Johanna Healy b1838 in Cork Ireland. Johanna is my ggGrandmother She Married Daniel O’Sullivan B 1838 in 1860 in Liss Ireland. As far as I can tell, Johanna and Daniel appeared here after a long voyage on a spaceship from Jupiter ?!?!? (kidding of course) – Maybe this is the link I’m searching for?! Anyone willing or able to help?

  4. Haha πŸ™‚ I think there were mass abductions in Ireland. Records are scarce. I don’t have much sibling information. It’s possible that Johanna Healy is a sister to my GGgrandfather John Healy. He was born 1832 around Millstreet, County Cork. But, I can’t find many records concerning him. I believe his father was Jeremiah Healy b. around 1803 probably somewhere around Keale/Millstreet. d. 1866. I know we have Sullivans, I guess someone dropped the “O” somewhere down the line. Maybe if you look around Millstreet, Cork, you’ll find something.

  5. We have a DNA match on the X gene, going way back. Healy is one of my family names through my maternal line. My g-grandmother was “Catherine” Mary Healy, b. circa 1845 in Castleisland, Kerry. Her father was Patrick Pearce Healy who married Ellen Kennedy.

    1. You also match my mom. That makes you on the side of the family with the surnames Healy, Webb, Hinchin, Ahern, Buckley, Dineen, McCarthers.

      You match her on the X gene and also the regular one-to-one. Her GEDmatch number is A241977 Peggy Healy Hatfield.
      I hope we can find the connection! πŸ™‚ If you search for Michelle Clements on Ancestry, my tree will be listed on the side as “Miki Clements” It’s a public tree. Do let me know if you find anyone familiar. Thanks! Do you have an Ancestry tree?

  6. Perhaps if you look on group called North Cork DNA MatchFinder on Facebook, it seems very good at finding connections, I believe you register your codes and I think after it gets updated the next day your matches that are in the group are listed. Worth a try.
