My grandfather was a Michael L.(?Luke) Feeney,son of Peter Feeney/O'Feeney. Michael's birthdate, as given on his death cert. was Jan. 10,1839, but suspect he may have been born a few years earlier. His mother's name on the d.cert. is rather smudged, but looks like Katherine Bracken. We thought they were from Sligo, but can find no trace...US census records state he arrived US in 1850. We think some of his siblings were named (those favorite, plentiful names among the Irish) Margaret, Peter, Catherine, Sarah. His US occupations have been listed as horseshoer and wagon maker. Would love to be able to extend this family line. Thanks to all who can help...would prefer direct e-mail to email@example.com
