ok see the link below , We knew Cussie well , He was at our wedding just 25 years ago, can probobly hook you up with pictures as well,,

William Hennessy married Bridget Brennan sometime 1863 or 1864. They had 6 children baptised in Castlecomer;Ann 1864,Bridget 1866,Patrick 1868, Joseph 1870,John 1872 and William 1874. Bridget came to NY about 1890. She married Nicholas Conroy. They had Helen 1892, Kathleen 1894, James 1896 and Elizbeth 1899. Additionally, John (1872) had a son William born 1895 who emigrated to Chicago. His ship registry lists Greens Hill Castlecomer as his hometown. In Chicago he was a police Captain known as Capt Bill Hennessy. He died 1985 and is buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Would love to hear from someone with information on the Hennessy and Brennan families.
