Hi: It seems that your Mary Ann was an aunt of my gr-gr grandmother Mary Ann MCGARRY, b.4/20/1845 to Patrick MCGARRY Jr. &Mary KANE. Patrick's parents were Patrick
MCGARRY & Ellen SHANLEY. They had 6 children as far as I have been able to discover, the 3rd being named Mary. As I have no other data on her middle name, I can only guess that this is the Mary Ann you are referring to She married a Patrick CONIFF according to my data. If this corresponds to your data, then we would be distantly related.The only other data I have is that she was born in 1813, & her husband in 1800. I do not have the locaion in Ireland where Patrick & Ellen SHANLEY come from, or any other data about them. I have been searching for this data for some time with no luck yet. Any data you would care to share would be most greatly appreciated. John T.MCANIFF III.
