I am responding because of the prolific use of the name MAURICE in your Murphy family. You mention one that inherited a KEANE farm but a marriage with a KEANE is not mentioned until a generation later with an ELLEN KEANE. Was there a connection between the MURPHY and KEANE families before this marriage?
My great-grandfather was MAURICE KEANE who was born circa 1865. His obit states Parish Castlemahon as where he was from (Not necessarily his birth-place, I guess). Maurice married a Bridget WHITE whose parents were John WHITE and Bridget CONNORS.
Do you have any other info on the KEANE relationships? I have no clue as to who the parents of Maurice KEANE are until I get his death certificate. (In about 2 months, if I'm lucky!!- Chicago!!). Anything at all would be appreciated.
