I am searching for the descendants of Timothy Kennelly (1797-1870+) born in Ireland possibly in CO Mayo. He married Catherine O'Connor in Kerry CO, Ireland and removed to Bulloch CO GA about 1832-1858. They migrated with families to Decorah,Winnesheik, IA and lived in Burr Oak and Decorah until his death in 1870+. His issue migrated to Emery, SD from 1885-1895 then on to Albert Lea, Freeborn, MN. Related families are Enright, Doran, Hennessey, Shawnassie, McCabe, Ryan, Donovan and more. I have quite alot to share if interested.

Mary b. 1846, Catherine b. 1847, James b. 1848, and Margaret b. 1850. The Doran family moved to Emery, SD and then on to Freeborn CO, MN. Johanna remarried Patrick Shannasie and lived in Fillmore CO, MN from 1870-1900. I have bits of history on the family if interested.

Do your Enrights link with ours from Austin, Mower Co., MN? I have John E. Enright who came from Ireland to Wisconsin, then on to Minnesota. He married Margaret Rose Frings in Milwaukee.

My ggg grandfater was Michael Kenely (we believe he changed the spelling of his last name, but cant find documentation. He owned a farm in Princeton, Mille Lacs County, MN. He was born in Ireland, I don't know where. He was married to Ellen Larkin. I unfortunately don't have dates at this time, we are in the process of moving and that information is packed, but if this is a possible link, I would love to hear from you! I will be able to get to the specific dates after 8/20/2000. You can e-mail me at

The Kennelly's I have been researching these past years settled in Albert Lea, MN about 1905 from South Dakota, Iowa, Georgia and (of course) Ireland. I would be glad to exchange info with you. Who are your ancestors???

Thanks for the quick reply. This is very exciting for me. I am the son of Richard P. Erlis Meyers(corrected spelling) Kennelly.
I have a sister, Susan Carol Kennelly Cameron in Moore Ok., a brother, Craig Robert in Boulder City, Nv., and a new cousin that I didn't know about? I am very interested in swapping as much info with you as possible. I have always wanted to know more about my family history on my fathers side as well as my Irish heritage. This is all very new to me, this internet stuff and how the geneology stuff works together. Would you be able to walk me through this?
Thanks, Paul
