My wife's family name is Keneally. Her father's family lived in the Bronx form many years; 1900-current.
There are too many Keneally's to list any here, for example:
her grandfather John Keneally had 10 children, eight boys so the Keneally name flourished. This Keneally line is related to Keneally's that also went to Australia. The Keneally's are traced to Newmarket, County Cork
John Joseph Keneally, b. Newmarket 1853, d NYC 1953; m. Mary Cashman 1900, b. 1881; d. 1926 (5 children); John remarried; Elizabeth O'Callaghan m. 1931; b. 1901, d. 1944 (5 children).
If you think there is some relationship, let me know and we will try to track it down.

My ancestors also came from Newmarket,County Cork esp. around Glenlara and Kanturk where my great grandfather Timothy was born to Cornelius Keneally and Honora Shine in 1835 or thereabouts. He emigrated to Australia and in 1879 married Bridget McCarthy.
Timothy, we think, had a brother Jeramiah and a sister Maree or Mary.
I would be gratefull for any help you can provide.

Jerry,

Your comment about Kenneally ancestors from Glenlara caught my eye. My great uncle Michael Fitzpatrick, from the farm Lisdangan in Newmarket, County Cork, married Abina Kenneally, from Glenlara in Newmarket, in 1906 in Manhattan.
They are both buried in St. Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx, along with 2 of their three children, Cecil and Theodore. My great Uncle died in 1916 (age 36), Abina lived until 1962 (age 82).

Abina's parents were James Kenneally (of Glenlara) and Abina Casey. No dates on either of them, but Abina was born in 1880, so they were both likely born somewhere in the 1850-1860 neighborhood

Abina had at least 3 sisters and 1 brother. Julia, Nora and Mollie all came to the US. Julia is buried with Abina and Michael in St. Raymond's. All I know about Thomas is that Julia referred to him as "brother Thomas Kenneally, Glenlara, Newmarket" in a 1911 Ellis Island record under the heading "nearest realtive in home country." It looks like perhaps Thomas inherited the family farm after the death of his father James?

Also, the witnesses to Abina and Michael's marriage were a Timothy Kenneally and a Mary Kenneally. Perhaps another brother and sister (or sister-in-law)?

All the above information comes from my great Uncle's marriage certificate, Ellis Island records, and St. Raymond's cemetery.

Do any of those Glenlara Kenneally's sound like your Kenneally's?

Best Regards,
Ed Fitzpatrick
