John QUIGLEY son of Malachy QUIGLEY

Posted: 10 Apr 2012 10:52AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: QUIGLEY, MORRISSY/MORRISSEY
I am descended from John QUIGLEY & Ann MELVERN (Nancy), per family-made pedigree and family group sheets. The diary of their son, John Philip, gives his father, John's, birthplace as Clooney Parish, Ireland. John & Nancy Ann's marriage record gives the father of John as Malachy QUIGLEY, a stonemason. Malachy's wife is said to be Mary MORRISSY or MORRISSEY.

Is anyone familiar with this family?

I have found, in an index of the County Clare Tithe Applotment books, a Malachy QUIGLY as an occupier of land in Clooney in 1825, but no details are included to confirm or disprove whether this is my Malachy.

John QUIGLEY died when his daughter, Margaret, was two years old, according to descendent-made biographies. His widow, Nancy Ann and children, John and Margaret, are living in Walmgate, York in 1861 with a COSGRAVE family to whom their relationship is not specified. A Hugh QUIGLEY is shown on the same page. Further tracing reveals that the COSGRAVEs and Hugh's son are all from Clare, Ireland.

John & Nancy Ann's son, John Philip QUIGLEY emigrated to America in 1870, along with his mother. Margaret emigrated to America in 1869.

Any information/advice welcome and appreciated!
