I have been searching for several months, with little success, to find out more information about my ggrandmother, Johanna Hallissey.
From Ohio census information I can determine she was born about 1855, came to the US about 1873 and was married in Jan 1875 to Thomas Mahoney in Springfield, Ohio. I had always been told Thomas came from County Cork, but his obituary said Tralee, County Kerry.
I know she had a sister named Mary Agnes. I still cannot locate any information on her parent's names. I am waiting for a copy of the church's marriage license from the Arch Diocese of Cincinnati. If there is nothing there, I have no idea where else to turn.
Family history states Johanna was from Kenmare, County Kerry. That's all.
If as you all research your Halliseys, you come up with sisters Johanna and Mary Agnes, please let me know.
My Johanna died at the age of 46 in 1901 in Springfield, Ohio. She had ten children, Catherine, Dennis, William, Mary Agnes, Clara, DAvid, Thomas, Nell, James and John.
I'll keep watching the postings!
