I am looking for Connells, McDermotts, Mahons and Higgins from County Galway. My great-great-great grandfather Stephen Connell was in Brierfield(Toole), Abbeyknockmoy, Tiaquin, County Galway according to Griffith's Valuation in 1855. His son Richard Connell, my great-great grandfather was born in 1841, he married Margaret Higgins on May 1, 1866 at the RC Chapel Mount Bellew. Margarets father was Thomas Higgins. He died before Richard and Margaret Higgins married. Richard and Margaret had so far as I know 4 sons, Stephen (b. 1867), Thomas, John, and Michael (b. 1876), and at least 1 daughter Mary. All four sons immigrated in the 1890s to the USA, NYC, then New Jersey.

My great grandfather was Stephen Connell, Richard and Margaret Connell's son. He married Sarah McDermott on Feb 7 1894, in Hoboken NJ. Sarah was born Dec14 1867, County Galway. Her father was Michael McDermott, her mother Bridget Mahon, Sarah had three sisters Mary (b.1864), Kathleen, and Margaret (b.1876) and 1 brother Denis (b.1865). I am trying to find info on my great-great-great grandfather Stephen Connell, and his wife, he was born abt. 1816. Also, I'm trying to find out anything I can about Michael McDermott, Bridget Mahon and Margaret Higgins
