HARRINGTONS of Kenmare

Dear Pat,

I have traced my Harrington ancestors back to Timothy Harrington and Nellie Foley, who lived in Lisseyclearig, Kenmare. They were married in the 1840s and had several children. My direct line comes from their daughter Nellie Harrington, who moved to Wallingford, Ct sometime in the mid 1800s. She first settled in New Haven and married a Patrick Quinn there around 1876. When Patrick died she later married a Richard Connors who left her within a few years after the marriage. She then moved to Wallingford. She did have a brother named Patrick, but the genealogical records from the Kenmare Genealogical Centre, Ltd., of Cathedral Walk, Kilarney, show that Patrick was baptised the 27th day of March, 1858, a few years before your own ancestor. Timothy and Nellie also had a son Jeremiah, born in 1850. But in the census of 1911 he is listed as a bachelor, and again as a bachelor on his death certificate filed in 1919. You and I may actually be related through the Harringtons of Kenamre, but it could be a collateral relationaship. If your Harrington ancestors settled in Wallingford, CT, then we are in all likelyhood related. The Harrington homestaed still stands in Lisseyclearig, though there is no roof on it at this time. Sorry for the delay in resonding but I just walked through the door from a trip to Ireland for a visit to my Harrington cousins who now live in Nenagh, Tipperary. Do you know a Catherine Brewer? Her mother Sarah was a sister to my great grandmother, Nellie Harrington Quinn Connors. Catherine recently moved from Old Saybrook, CT to live with her son in California. She is now about 90 years old. A response would be most welcomed.

Dave
