Guinty-Ginty surname origin

Posted: 1290364871000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Guinty, Ginty, McGinty
My gggrandfather was Michael Guinty, he had changed his name after arrival in the US from Ireland in 1847. His parents were Patrick and Mary, her maiden name was Hanley. Their last name before emigrating to America is up for debate. I have seen it listed as McInty (was it McGinty, written wrong by census takers?) or Ginty (there was a Ginty sept in Donegal), or McGeenty, or McGinnity. This is our major wall-creator, if we knew the original name we could find the family in Ireland. Personally, I believe the family was McGinty, and originated from Roscommon. There are lots of Hanley families listed on the eviction list from Ballikilkline (Check out the website). Any connections with your family lines?
