same great great granda in both the kelly side and the mc Daid side!

Hi Mary Poppins,
my relatives married 2 sisters of Anne McDaid (18/Feb/1876) - Mary McDaid (15/Jun/1880 & Bridget McDaid (02/Aug/1884).
So it is my cousins who are related to you. Anne was one of seven children, their parents were John McDaid (1840/41) and Catherine McLaughlin (?), they married 25/11/1873.
I have more info on Anne's other siblings and their relatives if you want it.

I dont know whether anyone can tie in the link with this but I also have Mcdaid /McDevitt ancestors from Buncrana area. My father is a 93 year old McDaid from Urrismenagh, Clonmany.  I have had his DNA tested which has evidenced ancestors from Buncrana and elsewhere. I have been contacted by distant relatives in the USA who have an DNA commonality with my father i.e. we are related "way back when".
Basically the Grandfather of a relative now living in Butte , Montana USA was Owen Francis Mcdaid (McDevitt) born Buncrana 1883 ( I am not sure how they have) verified this birth?. His father was John William McDaid Buncrana 1860 and His father Neil Joseph b. 1828. His father possibly John b. abt. 1809.
Does tis ring any bells?
