I found your postings on Ancestry and I wondered if we may have a connection.
My great-grandfather was William J. Donahue (or Donohue). He was born abt. 1846. His parents are believed to be John Donaghy and Jane Hanlon. I found a marriage record for them and they were married on 7 April 1845. They were married in Dungannon, Tyrone and Armagh, Ireland. I am not familiar with Irish geography, so I don’t know where that is beyond Northern Ireland.
John Donaghy and his wife and two children sailed for the US in 1849. They settled in Brooklyn, NY. I am finding a lot of Donaghy’s in the Tyrone area. I have a DNA connection to a Margaret A. Donahue 1857-1952. I believe she was the daughter of James Donaghy of Philadelphia. I don’t know how I would be connected to her, but I would love to know.
My g-grandfather settled in Brooklyn, NY and died there in 1900. He was married and had three children, my grandmother being one of them.
If you recognize any of these people, please contact me at email@example.com
. I have been searching for years for information about my g-grandfather, with little luck.
Thanks for any help you might provide.
