Looking for a connection to a Patrick McKeon b about 1840 m about 1860 in NYC to a Mary Webb. They had 10 Children: Bernard, Mary, Lizzie,Pheobe, Alice, Edward, Peter, John, John, Peter.

I realize John Peter are repeated but they each died young the name was used again, which the Irish often did.

y grgreatgrandfather was Joseph P. Clavin (1845-1934. He married a Catherine McKeon in NY City on 13 Aug. 1865. Rev John McEvoy of St John the Evangelist Church performed the ceremony. Little is known about Catherine. Her maiden name is alternatively spelled McKeon McKeown in various records. She was born in Ireland on 11 June, most likely in 1848. Her parents were Dennis McKeon Mary Wood. No records of the family have been found it is not kown if she had any brothers or sisters. Joseph Catherine hd a total of 13 known chidren. Various addresses from 13 Dec 1867 @ 2 Central Park Terrace W.54th St. (bet 8 9th Ave) 1880 on 48th St. 1886 to 1907 on W. 47th. Catherine McKeon however died 13 Nov 1904 at 56 yrs old and was in Calvary Cemetary 16 Nov 1904 in the Clavin family grav. She died of a cerebral hemorhage. They ran a taxi/limo business in NY City Thats allI know about her but if any of this sounds even vaguely familiar contact me e-mail.

McKeon: Longford to NY to LA?

Interesting. My Catherine McKeon's (b. 1816-20, d. Ireland) son, Thomas Heslin moved to NYC in the late 1860's, and he had brothers John and James. Legend is that he arrived in New Orleans, traveling with cousins from Longford to help found a Catholic mission to care for the recently freed slaves. His cousins, Thomas John Heslin, both priests were also in LA, as were McKeon's, Gormans, Reilly's and Igo's, all Longford cousins. Father Heslin later became the Bishop of Natchez.
Tell me more about your James.
