Re: FERGUS / DONNELLY , WESTPORT, County MAYO

In Reply to: FERGUS / DONNELLY , WESTPORT, County MAYO by John Fergus of 221

Hi,
I'm looking for a female Donnelly connection. I have a woman by the name of Hannah Donnelly (b. 1790, Ireland; d. Jan 19, 1861, Quyon, Quebec, Canada) who married (1808 in Castlebar) Malachi Bernard Mulligan (b. 1780; d. 1849) from Castlebar. They lived in Cloonkeen, Co. Mayo. I'm thinking (based on Irish Family Naming Conventions) that her father might be named John Donnelly; she may have had an eldest brother named Patrick (based on the name of the mother's eldest brother/5th son rule). I'm thinking that this Donnelly family may have emigrated from Northern Ireland (Co. Tyrone, or thereabouts) with the Mulligan families - the Mulligans settled in Castlebar/Cloonkeen, and the Donnellys settled in Westport.

If you have ANY information that you think might apply, even if it doesn't mathc my info exactly, please contact me.

Thanks,

Jennifer Mulligan
