Hi. This must indeed be your family. Delighted to hear from you I can send you a website that we use where you can see the family tree. Its Geni.com and its very clearly set out there. The letter from America to Mary Anne Guinness from her cousin is great to have. I have entered Roper into the web site searching for possible cousins so this is great. Would love to hear more information that you have and I of course will share any photos and information that I have. I have also been to Guinness archives and found our link with the Guinness family which is really great. My name is Lisa Duggan and I am a great grand daughter of Julia Keely. Great to hear from you and look forward to sharing more information. Lisa

Hi, Lisa!  Iíve been tracing my Keely ancestors for years, and itís a thrill to find this connection to Dublin.  Iím really interested to learn about the contents of the letter from Thomas Roper and the exact relation  to the Guinness family Ė as well as more about the Keely origins in Ireland.

Iíve done some research on Thomas Roper and his mother, Fanny Keely Roper, that Iíd be happy to share.  I **think** that Fanny is the sister of Sylvester and Julia, but I havenít been able to find definitive proof.  (Iíll look a little harder now!)

I look forward to seeing the tree on Geni and would be happy to add any of my own information.

Hi, I'm descended from Sylvester Keely, and I have a record of his death in 1872 in New York.  Do you have any information on the 1881 record?  I'd like to double check it against my source.  Thanks and happy New Year!

Hi all, Hope you are all enjoying the information that has come to light about the Keely family. To think of all they went through during 1848 failed rebellion.  To read about Thomas Matthew Halpin and his seven month narrative of imprisonment under the suspension act .  Its a really interesting account of life in an irish prison. That he married both Kate Keely and then her sister Maryanne is another interesting twist in the story. The fact that James Keely defended him and Kate gave evidence during his trial is well documented and very interesting to read.  For James Keely having to say goodbye to four of his children and his son in law when they left for America must have been heart breaking. To then take up the threads of their lives and follow what happened to them and the narrative of Sylvester during his time fighting in the American civil war has given a real insight into the type of people the Keelys were. I was also sad to read that James Keely died of cholera and his wife dropped dead in the street of heart failure. Finding the new american cousins and a branch of the Halpins in Wicklow is another branch of our story.

Hi Arsenal!

I don't personally know of any Thomas Duggan born in that decade but it's possible that there could be a connection. Do you know his parents' names and ages? Or maybe his grandparents'?
