I have not been on this board for a few years.
I am still searching for information about the family of John and Mary Keane Flaherty. They were from Rosmuck, County Galway. Civil Parish was Kilcummin. John was born about 1861. Mary born about 1871. They had 6 children. Listed on the 1911 census, Mary(13), Kate(10), Joe(7), Annie(5), Ellen (8) and Sarah(1).
All children eventually went to the United States, except for Sarah who stayed in Ireland.
Ellen left in the mid 1920's and never returned.

Hello Lois,

I believe that the family neme you are researching was FAHERTY, not FLAHERTY. THis was confirmed by looking at the 1911 Irish Census.

My Rosmuc data shows Mary being born 03 Nov 1898 in Inver, Rosmuc to John Faherty & Mary Keane. She came to the USA via Philadelphia in 1920 to join her aunt Catherine Keane. In addition, my data also shows that Kate arrived in Philadelphi in 1923 at age 20 to join her sister Mary.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Dave! This is great information! I didn't know about the aunt. I will have to find out more information about her.
