Mary....This might be a longshot, but I've been reading through your postings re the Castlegregory area and am wondering if you might have some connection to an O'Connor ancestor of mine.

Maurice O'Connor born ca1790 in the Castlegregory area (Cloghanseskeen or Cloghaneeanode are possible sites). He married Ellen Maunsell, who was also from the same area. Maurice and Ellen Maunsell O'Connor would be my Third Gr Grandparents. Their daughter, Johanna, ca 1820, married Thomas Currane; their first child, Mary, was born 1843. Other children born to the marriage were: Bridget, Patrick, Margaret (marr. Moriarity of Murreigh-Ballydavid), John and Thomas.

Mary Currane, born 1843, married James Harris of Derrymore. They had a family of ten of which the oldest, Michael Harris, born 1864, was my Grandfather.

I still have cousins living in the Castlegregory area, but they haven't been able to help me make a connection to any of the O'Connor families living there. Other related family names from Castlegregory are Spillane, Rohan and O'Hanlon and Courtney.

Thank you in advance for any ideas you may have on seeking information on the O'Connor families from the Castlegregory area.

Regards,
Mary
