Surnames: Traynor, Bohan, Connally
My Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Bohan born abt 1882 in Ireland (Killarney,Ireland?) married to James Patrick Traynor born abt 1829 in Ireland. I am not sure about the Killarney part but sure of the Ireland part. She had to have immigrated between abt1852-1879 as her first child was born in NYC in 1879. I find her with her widowed brother-in-law Timothy Connally, as well as his daughter 12 year old Teresa, and Mary Traynor listed as his mother-in-law in the 1880 Federal Census. I followed Connolly as far as I could and see that he had a wife named Bridget, and a daughter Kate as well as some sons. I mention those names because of the Irish naming customs. I'm wanting to fill in some blanks and wonder if my information matches anyone else's. Or if you might have a direction I should go in. I am very new to this research business.
