I am searching for information on a Talty family that left Milltown, Malbay, County Clare, Ireland about 1847. The family members were Michael and Bridget (Dorherty) Talty, their children: Anthony, Charles, Michael, Hugh, John, Peter, Margaret, Johanna, Mary, and Bridget. They originally landed in Canada, and from there moved to NY before settling in Dubuque and Waterloo, Iowa.

I have a Mary Talty who arrived about 1847 in Canada(I believe) and settled in Bath, Maine. She married Thomas Dolan. I don't know a lot about her but judging from naming patterns her mother's name was probably, Bridget. Her daughters, all born in maine, were Bridget, Mary, Josephine, Catherine and Margeret. Her death certificate says that her father was a farmer named Peter.

Talty/Boyle?

I'm intrigued by Julia's message on the Taltys, though I have no specific info about that family... My ggfather Michael Boyle emigrated from County Clare in 1847, is said to have come to New York and lived in Dubuque, Iowa in the 1852-1858 time frame (he then settled permanently in nearby Jackson County, Iowa). I haven't been able to track down precise origin in Clare, but there were many Boyles (as well as Taltys) who lived in the Miltown Malbay / Quilty / Kilmurry area. In fact, one of the area's Boyle families is said to be related to the Taltys. Would love to compare notes, find out which port of entry was used by your family.

Interesting. My gg grandfather was John Patrick (?) Talty who I believe was born in 1847(might be 1857) in Country Clare, Ireland. He had 9 children in Bridgeport, CT - the first born in 1883, Mary Talty. My g grandfather was his son Hugh Henry, who was born in 1896. I believe John Talty (gg grandfather) changed the family name to Taulty. All future generations carried the name of Taulty. Any info you have where we might intersect here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

In response to Mr. Boyle's inquiry -- I have not been able to pinpoint the port of entry for my Talty family but believe it may have been in Quebec, Canada before moving on to NY. My gg-grandfather, Peter Talty, made his way to Dubuque via NY. I found one of Peter's older brothers (Hugh) listed on the 1860 census for Dubuque. The first documentation of Peter's whereabouts in the US came from the 1870 census for Dubuque. I am still trying to determine where this family was from 1847 to 1860.

Peter also worked for the railroad in Dubuque before finally settling in Waterloo, IA where he continued to work for the railroad until he retired in the early 1900s. I do know that at the time of Peter's birth (late 1843, his family was living in the Diocese of Killaloe, Parish of Kilfarboy, Carhuduff, in Miltown Malbay (Church of St. Joseph). I have this information from Peter's baptismal certificate. I have just begun my search of the Griffith Valuation to try and pinpoint exactly where they lived, how they were employed in Ireland, and further family relationships.

Taltys in Carrowduff

As it happens, my great-grandmother Ellen Howe was born in Carrowduff, County Clare (it's in the Catholic parish of Kilfarboy but the civil parish of Kilmurry Ibrickane). That's in addition to my great-grandfather, Michael Boyle, also of County Clare.

Griffith's Valuation lists a number of Taltys in Carrowduff as well as nearby parishes (e.g., Tooreen in Kilfarboy). In Carrowduff we have Sinon Talty and Michael Talty. You'd find it interesting to know that there were several Dohertys in the same townland: James Doherty, son of Charles; James Doherty, son of John; Mary Doherty (apparently two), Bridget Doherty, John Doherty, Cornelius Doherty. The Howe family is right in the thick of it.

Among the Tooreen Taltys: Thomas, Patrick, John; John, son of Patrick; Peter, son of Patrick; Peter, son of John; John, son of Peter.

I also have the Tithe Applotment listing of 1826 for Carrowduff: Michael Talty and Andrew Talty are listed there, again with several Doghertys ... as well as my great-great-grandfather John Howe and two other Howes.

Finally, I have the 1985-86 register of electors from Carrowduff, which lists Gerard, Joseph and Sinon Talty, as well as Sinon's wife Mary and Sinon Jr.

All this is from the Clare Heritage Center. The center also has an 1830s census of Miltown Malbay that lists my Howes ... and may also list Taltys, although there are no Taltys on the sheet I have a photocopy of.

Another parallel to Julia's case: My great-grandfather Michael, as well as the Howe family members who emigrated to Iowa, worked on the railroad. This doesn't serve to prove any link, of course, but it gets me to thinking... and perhaps the Talty listings from Carrowduff are useful to you....
