I am the great granddaughter of Daniel Daniel Buckley from Millstreet, Cork. I would love to contact anyone who may know of my great grandfather and his family. When my mother and sister got the chance to visit Millstreet a few years back, they were greeted so warmly, like family.
My great grandfather Daniel was born 3 Apr/May 1872 in Millstreet, Cork. He was apprenticed as a tailor at the age of 6 and was a fully fledged tailor at age 14. He came with his family to the US when he was 16. He died in North Adams, Berkshire, MA on 14 Jul 1936.
His parents were Daniel Buckley m. Ellen Hickey, who was born Nov 1842 widowed after being married for 35 years, since 1865. She had 10 children of whom 5 survived. She was a naturalized citizen according to the 1900 census. Their other children are Eugene (born Nov 1865), Cornelius (born Apr 1870), John (Johnny, family story is he’s adopted) (born Sep 1880), and Kate (born Jun 1871) m. Dennis Falvey. She had 4 children of whom 3 survived.
Daniel and Ellen may have originally been from Cullen, but not sure. Any help would be most appreciated.
Thank you for any help you can offer. Warm greetings from US
