  1. Need a family tree for ARTHUR KEEFFE born 1770 MULLAGHROE. Cousin Janet from Boston is visiting next week. Also relatives needed.

    1. Denis, you didn’t by any chance mean Arthur Keeffe born in Mullaghroe on March 15th 1871 to Jeremiah Keeffe and Hanora Hickey? The parish or civil records don’t really go back before 1850.

        1. Indeed there are records from 1751-1776, 1822-1823, and a few entries from other years but they are far from complete, and it is hard to impossible to make a tangible link to the records post 1850.
          But I know nothing of the family unfortunately 🙁

      3. thanks micheal in millstreet parish they go back to 1750 its prior generation janet is tracing see all the crazy imformation she got.I AM FROM DOON many keefes around cullenand knocknagree knockduff etc janet visiting cullen this monday and tuesday It would be nice to help.go raibh ma aguit MICHIL

  2. Arthur was a family member of Jeremiah and hanora o keeffe mologhroe Cullen, I believe he went on to live and teach in Brosna co. Kerry

    1. Thanks Denis I have a good idea of your connection with O’Keeffe family. Man in question is a Arthur O’Keeffe MOLLOGUE written on his tomb stone erected BY BROTHER PATRICK Next graces hows died 1842. There was in millstreet baptismal born 24 march 1770 ARTHUR KEEFFE, FATHER DONATI AND MOTHER JULIA CALL SPONSOR CORNEILIUS SULLIVAN AND JOHANNA LEARY. THIS IS THE PERSON WE ARE TRYING TO TRACE. HE MUST BE CONNECTED WITH JERMIAH O KEEFFE OF MULLAGHROE I THINK ITS THE PRIOR GENERATION HE IS FROM. ANY HELP JANET WHO IS IN CULLEN AREA TODAY

  3. Cornelius o Sullivan may have been known as corney as there was a marriage connection in one of the generations and that family still Carries the corney name. My knowledge would be sketchy.d

  4. I am not so sure DENIS as I know them well back to okeeffe go back another generation this arthur was born 1770 perhap s some of the DEN KEEFE OF KNOCKDUFF MAY KNOW ANOTHER WE WILL DEAL WITH THE JER CHARLIEs ha ha

  5. Do you know if she has had a DNA test or has a GEDmatch number, as I have some local GEDmatch numbers for O’Keefe/Keeffe families.
