Hugh O'Brien Cootehill Co Cavan Ireland
« on: Monday 21 July 14 02:50 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for the family of Hugh O'Brien (1832) and Mary Connolly.  They lived in both Aughanullen and Lisnalong Co. Monaghen and Cootehill, Co. Cavan. 

Hugh's father was Patrick O'Brien and his mother was Mary Coyle.   Mary’s mother was Judy McKenna.

The only birth record I was able to find was for my Aunt Rosie (13 Oct 1867, in 153, COOTEHILL, CAVAN, IRE).  My great grandmother Bridget and her brother Patrick were born in Lisnalong around 1864 & 1865.

Hugh and Mary had:
Anne (abt : 1855- 1860) married a William Connelly.  In 1901 & 1911 lived in Cormeen Co Monaghan) - (Children: Kate-1889; Patrick J -1891; Bridget- 1893; James-1895; Arthur-1897 (immigrated to NY)

Bridget (abt : 1861-1864) moved to Boston  Area
Patrick (abt : 1861-1864) moved to New York City

Susan (abt : 1865-1866) married an Andrew Dempsey .  In 1901 & 1911 lived in Dummakenna, Cormeen Co Monaghan) - (Children: Mary Anne -1892; Alice-1900 )

Rose (13 Oct 1867 in Cootehill, Cavan, Ireland) married a Peter Clerkin - (Children: Peter-1904)

James married a Mary Lennon

Any help in much appreciated.
Thanks, Annie

Hi
Rather a long time after your post
I live in Cootehill not far from Lisnalong approx 4KM
I don't personally know this family but there are still O Briens around.
You could have letter printed in.local Monaghan paper The Northern Standard if you Google you will find email.Send Fao Editor
There may be a charge for this but it will be seen by the locals.This is a rural area people know everyone.
At moment due to corona virus i dont expect many will be out to buy paper
But it's your best chance of finding your relatives.
Dunmakenna is close to Lisnalong about 1 KM..There are about 4 Dempsey families still in that area.
Best Regards
