My great grandmother was an Ann Hehir of Knock James, Tulla, Co. Clare. All I know is that she married Thomas Dooley of Ballyoughtera, Tulla, probably sometime in the 1860s. To my knowledge, they both lived out their lives there, but several of their children, including my grandfather Thomas F. Dooley, emigrated to America (Chicago). My cousin Anna (Dooley) Fitzgerald still lives in the house where Ann Hehir (her grandmother) grew up: you can write her at Knock James, Tulla, Co. Clare, Ireland. She may know something. Have you by any chance run across any references to Dooleys in your tracing of the Hehirs?
