Family tradition says that my g grandfather, Patrick Henry Quinlan, was born in Killarney, but we don't know when. The 1880 census gives his age as 53? but his death notec in 1909 states he was 65. The census date is most likely incorrect but we think he was nearer 70 when he died. We do not know his parent's names but his mother's maiden name may be Doyle. We think he had sisters Catherine and Johanna. We think he came to the USA in the a850s or early 1860s,first to Indiana, then to Plattsburg, Clinton, MO, USA and finally to Kansas City, Jackson, MO, USA. We think he married Catherine Morrissey while in IN and theire first child was born there. We do not know if his family came with him. The story was that one parent died and he did not "get along" with the new step parent, but no one knows if this is true or not. Looking for connections in County Kerry.
