Kehoes from Ireland to Wisconsin, US
Posted by: Mary DesJardins Hitchcock (ID *****9424) Date: April 06, 2011 at 16:16:01
  of 1252

In the 1880 US Census, in the tiny farming hamlet of Eaton, Brown County Wisconsin we find these Kehoes:
William Kehoe b. 1814 in Ireland, emigrated 1848, arrived NY May 9, 1848 on the Countess of Durham; in WI by 1850, in Brown County, Wisconsin by 1860, and died in Eaton, Brown, WI US in 1871. Family lore says his family died on the ship coming over to the US.
James J. Kehoe was born about 1833 in Ireland, emigrated in 1861 (no ship record found) and came to Eaton, Brown County, WI by 1870, died 1916 in Brown County, WI. He married Mary Neville 1876. in Wisconsin.(b. County Offaly, Lynally, Tullemore)
Denis Kehoe was born about 1842 in Ireland, emigrated in 1861 (no ship record found), came to Eaton, Brown County, WI by 1880, married to Mary Doyle, who we believed he married in about 1876 in Wisconsin.
Mrs Anastasia Kehoe was born about 1789 and died in Eaton, Brown County, Wisconsin in 1866.
We know these Kehoes were related, and believe that Anastasia may have been Denis' grandmother, and possibly William's mother-in-law?????
I find in the Griffith Valuation, an Anastasia Kehoe and a Denis Kehoe
at Townland Bregorteen, County Wexford, Barony Shelmaliere West, Parish Kilbrideglynn, Roman Catholic Parish of Glynn.
Can anyone help me? Where do I go from here? How can I look at birth, baptisms, marriage and death records at the CATHOLIC Parish of Glynn.....or where else shall I look.
I will be in Ireland for one month may-June....any suggestions?
