Hi Kevein - thanks for the info. My Morans go back to Daniel who, according to Paul's research from the Griffith Value, was the only Moran in Boolakeel. There was another Moran in Kinard, John Moran. Is your John a descendant of him? Or, if from Boolakeel, maybe your John is the grandson of another son of Daniel. Have you pursued getting any records for your John? I find it hard to imagine that our Morans wouldn't be related somehow - living so close. There may have been a sister of Jeremiah that stayed behind in Ireland and married a Fenton. Let me know what you think and email me if you'd like.
