Dunfanaghy Duffy & Creeslough McFadden
« on: Wednesday 06 April 11 07:36 BST (UK) »
Looking for any info or suggestions for great grandparents: He was James Duffy (b 1830, emig to US 1900 from Pound Street in Dunfanaghy, died US 1901). His brothers may have been John, Hugh, Patrick. One unknown sib or uncle was nabbed for counterfeiting.

She was Catherine McFadden (b circa 1830, died before 1901). She's from Tirlin, Creeslough, possibly Doe Parish. Her father was Anthony McFadden, no idea on mother. Two of her brothers were Dennis and Patrick (who married Rose Gallagher).

James and Catherine married circa 1850. They had Michael (b 1850?), Maurice (b 1864) Bridget (b 1865?), John (b 1865?), James (1867), Mary Anne (b 1871), Catherine (b 1873), Charles (b 1875).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

According to Ancestry DNA, we are 4th cousins and appear to share the McFadden branch of our trees. That would indicate we share the 3X grandparent,  on my branch that is Patrick Mc Fadden Sr. 17701862 Roshin, Donegal, Ireland. 2nd great-grandfather Patrick Mc Fadden jr.
18061876 Roshin, Donegal, Ireland, married a Bridget, birth name unknown My great  grandfather was Charles T. McFadden 18601933, married to Julia Gallagher. My grandmother Mary Alice (1880-1961) and the bulk of her siblings emigrated at the turn of the century to NY and Philadelphia areas. The records all refer to Roshin but they all said they were from Dunfanaghy.
