- Patrick and Mary had 11 children, one of them Jeremiah Arthur Foley who was my grandfather(1891- 1973)
- Patrick and Mary T Foley and Jeremiah O'Leary and Ellen (Courtney) O'Leary, left Shahahill West, Co Kerry, approx 1883 and settled in Truxton, Co Cortland,NY.
- Mary Theresa O'Leary's parents were Jeremiah O'Leary and Ellen Courtney
- My GGrandmother, Mary Theresa(Foley) O'Leary was a midwife, interpret of Gaelic/English, and
There were many other Irish families that settled near here that came from the Parish of Keel.
