Does anyone have any information of John McCarthy and Margaret O'Leary of Kildee County Cork, Ireland? They were married circa 1840 and to the best of my knowledge they had sons Daniel, Jeremiah, Patrick, James, Timothy that I know of. I am sure they had daughters but I cannot find anything out about them.
Daniel migrated to the coal fields of Pennsylvania (Mahanoy City), Jeremiah and sons followed but returned to Ireland eventually settling in Garraneard, Ballinascarthy. Patrick and James later moved to New York, with James supposedly entering the seminary, or monastery.

I have been searching for twenty years, twqo genealogists have turned up little info, other than their roots were in Kildee and their parents Timothy and Margaret Maloney may have been pig farmers who owned considerable land in Ireland accroding to the Tithe Applotments of 1852, mwhich may expalin how they through the Famine. If you can help please contact me!
