Just curious since I have a Lucy Killian in my ancestry. I have noticed on several places on the net a Lucy Killian from Milltown, Malbay Co. Clare. Mine married a Michael Maroney and went on to have a number of children who immigrated to the Massachusetts area.
Mary,born around 1866,died in October 7, 1932 in Worcester, Massachusetts who married James Hoy May 2, 1876. They had 7 children, Joseph (1877-1948), Lulie "Lucy" (1878-1923), Frances (1879-1938), John (1881-1963),Catherine (1884-19710, Maud (1887-1972) and Theresa "Tessie" (1894-1969).
Margaret,my husband's gggrandmother (1866-1932) married Michael Curtin in Boston February 13, 1889.From all family reports he too is a Clare man. They had three childre, John (1889-1981), Ethel (1891-1989) and Lucy (1894-1992). Lucy was born in Providence, Rhode Island so the family must have spent some time there.
Patrick Maroney-all I can find on him is that he was born around 1850 and married an Annie Gorman-a second marriage for her March, 1890. They had four children-she had one from a previous marriage- Micheal, Mary, Annie and Katie -all born between 1892 to 1898 in Boston.
Cornelius Maroney (1868-1936) who married Margaret Mulville(1872-1935) March 1899. The Mulvilles are from Roscommon-that was listed on one of her brother's WW1 registration forms and one was a NYC (Bronx) policeman.Another brother named Barthomew appears to have remained in Ireland according to her obit.
They had three children- Helen (1900-1994), Mary (1902-2000) and John (1903-1960).
Finally a Jeremiah Maroney (1875-1955).
There may be more Maroneys- a possible Elizabeth from Boston but I can't trace her beyond 1880. And the family started coming from Ireland around 1870 through the late 1880s and appeared to have stayed in the Boston and Worcester area for the most part. If the Irish naming pattern holds we are missing a few names like a Michael and possibly a Lucy but they may not have ever immigrated.
Any possible connections out there?
