I have both a Julia (my great-great-great-grandmother) and several Juliette's (a "great" Aunt and some "great" Cousins who are several times removed) I'm cut & pasting my family tree for the Markey line below. It has several of the names that you are looking for as well. The only difference is that we're from the New York City area. Perhaps one of the Juliette Markey family members moved and changed to calling herself Julia" since Juliette was a bit old fashioned.

I hope this helps you find something more about your family.

I had posted the following message out on the's Ireland message folders and also on the subfolders. Several people suggested that they were probably talking about "Enniskean Civil Parish is in the northernmost part of Meath, on the border with Co. Cavan. Ervey", although there is a slight possibility that it might be in the area near Dunmanway down in County Cork, since there is an Enniskean there as well.

Here's my original message: START OF ORIGINAL MESSAGE:

I have been trying to determine where my GGG-GF was from. My grandmother had saved an old map of from the NY Sunday News, for March 15, 1964, that was titled "Erin's First Families". My grandmother had noted on it:
"Clark's & Corbett's - Grandmother Cannon's family from Tyrone. Michael Cannon from Connaught.
Markey's from County Meade "Towns Land of Ervey"'
I found that the Markey notation she made from the inscription of the gravestone of Francis Markey, who is my Great-great-great grandfather (died 24 January 1859, age 75). The full inscription reads:
To The Memory of
A Native Of The Parish of Ennaskeen
Towns Land of Ervey, County Meade
Who Departed This Life January
24th, 1859, Aged 75 Years

Also His Beloved Wife
Who Died February the 23rd, 1859
In The 74th Year of Her Age
Requiescant in Pace Amen
Erected By Their Affectionate Sons

I've been able to locate Connaught as a province and Tyrone and Meath as counties but I can't find any reference to Meade or Ervey and I didn't know if anyone knows of any place that might have changed the spelling of it's name. I just don't know where to go to research it. Of course it could also be how the family spelled it after they came over to the US from Ireland. I don't know if my GGG-GF could read or write so perhaps it was how his children understood his pronunciation of the word Meath and whatever town "Ervey" might be.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks. Pat Wilson-Perkins

Ann Cannon Hopkins and Ruby Maxwell were listed by my grandmother as being buried in the Sec 13, Range --, Plot 144 of The Calvary Cemetery however without their dates of internments or death, the cemetery cannot find them in their records. I will be going to the cemetery in the spring to see if they are listed on the headstones.

Francis & Fanny Markey (our Great-great-great-grandparents) are the parents of Patrick Markey.
Patrick Markey became a US citizen. I have a copy of his naturalization papers. I don't know if Francis & Fanny did.

In a nutshell: The Markey's are from: County Meath, The townland of Ervey, in the Civil Parish of Enniskean in the Barony of Lower Kells, Kells Poor Law Union.

We do not know the church parish that they were from which is where most of the records were probably kept during that time. They were Roman Catholic.


The Cannon's were Gram's mother's side of the family, (Alice Gertrude Cannon). She was Betsy's and Dad's Grandmother. Betsy and her mother are named after her, well Betsy is Alice Elizabeth.

Although I'm not sure who the "Clark's & Corbett's" were, I presume they were Gram's grandmother Cannon's family names, her grandmothers' parents last names. They were from County Tyrone which is in the Province of Ulster. The County is now part of Northern Ireland. Ulster has nine counties -- six are part of Northern Ireland (now a separate country) and three are in the Republic of Ireland.
I'm not sure who "Michael Cannon" was but he was from Connaught. It's a province. Ireland is divided into four provinces - Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connaught. Connaught is made up of Counties Mayo, Sligo, Galway, Leitrim and Roscommon. Trying to find more about him will be very difficult because we know so little about him.

Betsy, I know you sent me everything you had about the Cannon's and Markey's but do you remember anything from your conversations with Gram about the Cannon side of the family? I haven't started on that side at all. I should start posting messages on the message board since there were several siblings. Last question; Lucy asked was if Betsy was a McGarry. No, McGarry is on the Wilson line, Annie McGarry married Thomas F. Wilson, Sr. Betsy is related through the Markey's and the Cannon's side.
The Wilson's and the McGarry's are from Ireland but we don't know where. Dad remembers that one of his aunt's had told him that the family had come from Armagh. Armagh is both a County and a city in Northern Ireland in Ulster province. At the time when our family would have been there it was still Catholic. I just found a page about Armagh that told about a fire in 1922 that caused the loss of most records but they are working to restore the lost records. I'll save the page and also send in my information and see if they have anything.

I'm not sure where John P. or his parents are interred, I think they are interred in Holy Cross cemetery but I'd have to recheck my records.
1) Francis & Fanny Markey had 5 children, one of whom was Patrick Markey
2) Patrick Markey married Julia Gargan had 12 children, one of whom was Edward Joseph Markey

Thomas CANNON married Annie and had three children
Rev. Thomas CANNON (Jesuit Priest, served in the Philippines)
(died in childbirth, twins survive)
Sister Margaret CANNON (Maryknoll Sister, deceased 2000 or 2001)


Gram's map from the NY Sunday News, for March 15, 1964, that was titled "Erin's First Families" had noted on it:"Clark's & Corbett's - Grandmother Cannon's family from Tyrone.
Michael Cannon from Connaught.
Markey's from County Meade "Towns Land of Ervey"'

Betsy is related to the Markey and Cannon side not the McGarry and Wilson side but she likes reading the different stories and being kept in the genealogy loop so I keep sending her the information about both sides of the family. We have only that one 2nd cousin that I met through my research on Dad's side. They live down near Mom and Dad in Florida but didn't seem to want to make any effort to meet them. Even though I've been "talking" to the husband, it's actually the wife who is the relative. His last e-mail to me said that he had sent me pretty much all that he had; that golf was going to take up much of his time and that he wouldn't be doing genealogy over the summer. I think I got the brush off. ;o(

I believe that Meath in Gaelic would be pronounced by a Gaelic speaker as if it were spelled Meat. The final t is not as hard as in English and might easily be understood by an English speaker as Mead.

My g-g- grandmother was Ann, or Nancy, Markey and married Hugh McCabe in Ireland. The immigrated with their oldest daughter but I can find no ship record or immigration record. They settled in Schagticoke, New York and later lived in Troy, NY.

Reference my last post. Hugh and Nancy's children were Mary, born in Ireland; Margaret Ann, my g-grandmother, Francis and Julia.Julia married Thomas Mullen in Lansingburg on 1 January 1865. I have not researched their children.

Thank you for the Meath explanation. I had heard a similar explanation for the pronunciation but it still doesn't explain where they lived since there are a few similar sounding places to Enniskean.

By 1865 all of my immediate relatives were already here in the US in the Brooklyn, NY area but who knows we may be related still, just further back in our past. It seems as though they were always using the same family names which makes searching that much harder.

All the best in your searching.

I am the daughter of Edward J. Markey of Blue Hill, Maine. My grandfather was Edward J. Markey, Sr, and I believe he died in 1960. I am very interested in the family history and have enjoyed reading what information is posted here.
Thank you!
