My Bridget Houlihan (1838-1910) and her husband Thomas Kett lived and died in the Kilkee area, Co. Clare. Bridget apparently had a brother Thomas Houlihan who went to the US about 1868. Bridget & Thomas' father was Patrick. I don't yet know the name of their mother. Thomas & Bridget Houlihan had a nephew - through whom I don't know -- named Pat Houlihan. That's all I've got at the moment.
