Surnames: Kane/Cain/Keane/Kain/Cohan/spouces/Ready/Reidy/Green/Conway/Barrett/Keough/Kehoe/ect.
I have been working on my Kane family for over 10 years.
The name Kane came from the gailic name Keane. Years ago
a lot of them did not know how to write so the nanme was
spelled the way the person had to put it in writing interpred it. They all sound the same Cain/Kane/Keane/Kain/even Cohan and more. My own family is listed on a 1860 census in Poughkeepsie, NY as Edward O. Cain, a relative moved in with him Martin Keane following
this line from 1870 his name also changes. These familys
came from West Clare, Doobeg, Kilrush, Cooraclare ??? Have
only been able to get back to 1815. Think some (Michael b.1815) left Ireland for England year? then to NY CT and PA. When you
are doing research try different spellings. Good Luck and Happy St. Patricks Day...
