Subject: RE: Doheny
As much as I would like to prove a connection with my ancestors, I don't have any other sources to explore to prove this. Michael Doheny married Margaret Bray at Ballyfin, Queens County, in 1834 but as a previous reply states none of their children were baptised there. I'm aware Doheny is a common Tipp surname, but I had a search done at the record centres there but without success. |
Also, to confuse matters, at her death Margaret was listed as widow of Alexander Doheny, and the youngest daughter, Julia Anne, noted on her Scottish wedding certificate her father was also Alexander. Perhaps this was Michael's 2nd christian name, or perhaps they wished to distance themselves from the 'Young Irelander', especially as they had emigrated to the UK by 1851.
I am a Doheny descendent of Michael Doheny's brother or cousin. Mine came from Fethard (Three brothers, Thomas, Walter , and Dennis), who came to Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania in the US, and later moved to Sibley County, Minnesota in the 1850s. I also manage the Doheny List on Rootsweb.
