Hallisseys in Kenmare

Rosemary,

Margaret Hallissey, whose 10 children were born roughly between 1864 and 1879,
was my grand-aunt's mother-in-law. Margaret married a Jeremiah Quill in Ireland.
All their children were born in Ireland. They all immigrated to Holyoke,
Massachusetts, some time between 1880 and 1900.

The only exact place I can put Margaret Hallissey in Ireland is in Killfaddamore,
Kilgarvan, Kenmare in County Kerry, at the time her daughter Johanna was born,
1875.

I know that Margaret Hallissey died AFTER 1925, but I'm not sure when and have
not looked up her obituary, which would tell a great deal. Do you have any other
info on your Hallisseys that would help here?

Kerry Kate Coburn is right. Hallissey is not a common name in Kerry.
