Many Thanks, actually Peter went to Connectcut 1909, under the name Keefe, the O been dropped,
on the 1901 census for Mary, that is her sister Alice, who also went to the States. 1908, the Mulcahy boys on census are no relation,( this puzzled me for ages, but it seems they were been looked after by Mary Moran (senior). I think their mother was in workhouse, in Carrick on Suir.  On the1901 census Mary (born 1876) was working in a house in Carrick on Suir, Co Tipperary, this been the local town, my father was born 1904, Mary would then be 28years old.  My great- grandmother was a very canny lady, gave my fathers name as Hurley, on 1911 census, that  been the name of the people where Mary used to work, so I worked the rest out.(I have requested a few times for it to be changed to Moran and update his age, but they have not done it)  Thank you for the links to the graves, unfortunately, Mary's one did not download the picture. I am delighted with all your help. Also, I think Bridget Moran born 1875 and Alice born 1879, appear to have died in infancy, leaving them with 5 boys and 2 girls, all, except John went to America.

Well I am just amazed at this information, it seems my father was well and truly led up the garden path, as he had no idea at all about these relatives, his grandmother ( who reared him) died when he was about twelve, he then had to take a job as a servant until he was old enough to join the army, he had no one to tell him anything, indeed, he did not even know when he was born, always thought or was told that his mother was only 17years when he was born, well, we now know different Thank goodness for modern technology.
