Hi Deborah May:

My Father In law (now deceased) was Andrew DeCoursey, son of Andrew DeCoursey, great grandson of Denis Decoursey who came to New York City from County Cork during the middle of the famine(exact townland unknown) and married a Catherine Spillane (maiden name, also from County Cork, original townland unknown) in the 1850s. Denis's parents were apparently John DeCoursey and Julia Mahoney. I have extensive research but it stops back there. I am aware of Kinsale DeCourcey's and DeCoursey and my father in law travelled there years ago (there is still a DeCoursey country poster from the Kinsale region at his home) but he always thought that his people were from a small town and no links to any of the nobility (i.e. Kinsale DeCoursey's) so Lisapatrick makes a lot of sense to me. Do you have any Mahoney's or Spillane's in your line? My email is JPALLENJD@YAHOO.COM. If you send me an email, I can send Family Tress and Powerpoint. I am now only a limited member of Ancestry. Please let me know, thanks! Regards, Jim Allen, Bergen County, NJ USA, son in law of Drew DeCoursey
