I am interested in tracking the descendants of Denis Keenan and his wife Bridget Hurley. According to my Hurley cousin, Denis Keenan was born in Abbeyleix, Co Laois (then known as Queens County) in Ireland and worked as a butler. We know something about Bridget Hurley - she was born in Coolnagrane, Skibbereen, Cork, Ireland in November 1869.
Bridget went to the UK and stayed with her sister Mary in West Ham, London, according to the 1891 census.
In the 1901 census Bridget and Denis Keenan were living in Chelsea with their three oldest children: Raymond, Ellen, Catherine.
In 1911 they were in Chapel-en-le-Frith, Derbyshire and by then had three additional children: William, Mary, and Agnes.
So... if anybody is decended from William, Mary, Agnes, Raymond, Ellen, or Catherine Keenan I'd love to hear from you.
If you are in a direct matrilineal line of descent from Bridget Hurley through Mary, Agnes, Ellen, or Catherine then we share rather unusual rare mitochondrial DNA!
