Looking for any info on the O'Neill family from Valencia Island, Co. Kerry. John O'Neill and wife Mary Foley had five children that we know of, born at Revenue Larahan, Valencia Island between 1851 and 1868: John, Patrick, Daniel, Michael and Maria O'Neill.
By the late 1870's they had moved to Merthyr Tydfil, Dowlais, Wales where the older sons worked in the steel mill there. Patrick O'Neill married Mary Lehan of Wales and they emigrated to Greenport, NY and then to New London, Connecticut (my hometown). Many of the Valencia Island families wound up in New London.
John (the son) supposedly married an O'Mara, probably from the same family of O'Maras that lived in Groton, CT.
Daniel O'Neill and Maria O'Neill married a pair of siblings, Anna Murphy and Dennis J. Murphy, respectively.
Looking for any information anyone may know about the O'Neill or Murphy families! Thanks!
