In reference to Julia Relihan's message of 8/30/99: My grandmother, Ellen Relihan, b.1860, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry, came to Los Angeles, California in the late 1870s. She was the daughter of Michael Relihan (m. Catherine Hartnett). Her uncle, Thomas Relihan (m Johanna Welch), had several children who came to the U.S., among them Edward (m. Julia Stack), Jeremiah (m. Mary Breshnahan), who had a dairy farm in Los Angeles), and Patrick. I believe that Jeremiah and Patrick had no children. During the late 1870s and early 1880s Edward was working in gold mines in Nevada.

I have information about the other children of Michael Relihan and of Michael's siblings, Thomas, Johanna (m. Patrick Hartnett), and Mary (m. 1. Patrick Hartnett, 2. Felix Ferron), which I'll be happy to share.

I would appreciate hearing from descendents of these people and from those with further information.

My name is Tim Relihan, brother of Julia Relihan,from Knockreagh, Listowel. I am a Great Grand son of Edward Relihan who travelled to the US and he worked in the gold mines, he must be the same one that you mentioned. Edward returned to Ireland and bought the farm in Knockreagh. He had a few children, one of them Thomas (m. O connell) inherted the farm. Edward was killed at the age of 45 when his cart over turned on him. I currently live near Fort Lauderdale in Florida.

I am trying to find information on my grandfather. Most important, his place of birth so I can get his birth certificate as part of my application for Irish citizenship.

His name was Michael Relihan(born either 1887 or 1888) and emigrated to US probably in 1890s. His father was Michael and his mother was Mary Cain.

Please contact me with any information at

My Great-Grandfather was Thomas Relihan of Kilcara, Duagh. He returned from the US in the late 1880s and married Mary Dillon. They had two children Katherine and Michael. Michael is my grandfather, he married my grandmother May Brosnan (from Listowel I think). Don't know if this helps.
