Hi Phil: My Great Great grandmother was Mary Kennedy from Clogh, Co.
Kilkenny. She was married to a collier named Michael Comerford (1832-1875). Their
daughter Julia Comerford b.1861 in Clogh was my Great Grandmother who
immigrated to the US (Bronx NY) in 1884 and married John Mulhall from
Ballinakill, Co.Laois. The only other info I have on my Kennedy ancestors from Clog is another Mary Kennedy who was my Great Grandmother’s cousin and lived in Philadelphia. She was the maid of honor at my Great Grandmother’s wedding in 1885. I visited Clogh a couple of times in the 1980s. It appears to be a very small village, so I don’t know how many Kennedy families were there at the time. I remember searching the graveyard around the church. I would greatly appreciate hearing about your Kennedy line.
