Skibgirl - My gr gr grandmother was Maria [pronounced Mariah] McCarthy from Letter [Lettertinish), Skibbereen. She was born ca 1815. Maria married Michael Minihane of Ballyally, near Lough Hyne, east of Baltimore., and had six children. It is said that we are of the Reagh/Riobach McCarthy clan.

I know that Maria had one brother, Daniel, who married Ellen Minihane, Michael's sister. They emigrated to Canada with all their children. I've found the names Charles and Patrick McCarthy in the Letter area in the 1800s. There are no McCarthys from this line currently living in Letter.

Do you think there might be any connection?
