I am researching the Donaghy's of Northern Ireland. My Great grandfather was William Donaghy. I know he was born abt. 1875 and came to the U.S. in 1904. I know he was from County Tyrone, the townland listed on the Ship manifest was Grange. I'm Just not positive of what Parish. I think it is the Parish of Clonfeacle, because when he came to the U.S. he was traveling with Peter Harvey b. May 30 1889 and married Peters Sister Kathryn (Catherine) Harvey abt. 1907, and she listed her townland as Moy, which is in the Parish of Clonfeacle. There also is a townland Grange listed in the Parish Desertcreat which is close to Cookstown, and there is a family member who remembers stories told of Cookstown.
The name was Americanized or changed prior to the 1910 census to Donohoe and then to Donahue by 1930. They lived on 2nd Street in Philadelphia, PA for at least the next 40+ years.
But, I do not have any further / Prior information on William Donaghy (Donahue) or Peter and Kathryn (Catherine) Harvey, other than, all three listed Bernard Harvey (uncle and friend) as their contact in America (Philadelphia). I would love to find the names of their parents and if there were any more siblings. The 1900 U.S. census lists Bernards birth date as abt. 1849. His wife is listed as Mary b. 1851 in Ireland (nothing more specific). It looks as if they married in 1875 in Philadelphia and had five children; Francis,Minnie Lizzie, William, and Alice.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would love to learn more on exactly the family came from and about other members.
