Possibly in the Castleisland, Brosna, Ballincuslane an
unknown O'Neill wed Elizabeth Emperor and had at least
Constantine b 1821 in Ahane Cross, Castleisland, Brosna, County Kerry,

siblings Haneas and Timothy
Contantine married Catherine Lane who was b June 1823

Mary, Noreen, Joanna, Richard and another that became
a nun Sister M. Alqogue (sp.)
They had William b 1849, ? Ire.
They immigrated 1851 from Liverpool to the US, possibly VA initially.
Eventually settling in Ohio and
daughter Mary Molly Angela b 1862 OH
married in 1886 Patrick Agnew b 1857 Cavan, Ire
Patrick was the son of Thomas Agnew and Ann Carroll,
both families I believe were from Cavan. Thomas was b
1825 in Drummamuck Glebe, Knockbride, Cavan.
Patrick b 1857 and sister Rose were the only ones of 8
known to immigrate to the USA, he in 1881, settling in
the Dayton Oh area.
They had 6 children. Youngest son Arthur Vincent b
1901-1993, married Mary Ricker .
They had 3 children, Mary Carol Agnew b 1931 and still
alive is the mother of our 3 children, but not my
To the best of my knowledge all of these families were Catholic
I'm just trying to put a little bit of my children’s
maternal side together for them and the grandkids. No
one is real interested at this point in their lives but
perhaps they will be in another 20 years.
If anyone has and information or any ties to these families, please contact me.
