Hello!

I was wondering if anyone had any information about a Nellie (Ellen) Breen? Born around 1872 in Ireland, traveled to either Massachusetts or New York. She married Patrick Counihan and had 3 kids. I think she might be part of the David Breen and Honora Nora Connor family? It's just a guess, I don't have much information!

My grandfather was the David Patrick Breen who appears in your family tree. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Ellen (Nellie) Breen. It is possible that she was the Ellen who was David's sister. There are more Breens out there than I would have expected. Do you have any info on your David? Maybe we can find a link.

My grandfather, David Breen, was the son of David and Norah Breen. He lived in Glencar, Kerry, before emigrating to the US . I don't think he left from Liverpool. He spent the rest of his life in NYC. I don't know anything about his sister Nellie (Ellen)except that she left Ireland. His other siblings were Henry, Michael, Honora (Hannah) and Deborah. He died in 1931.

My grandfather, David Breen, was born in Kerry, Ireland. His siblings were Henry, Michael, Deborah, Ellen (Nellie) and Honora (Nora). He emigrated to New York City in the 1890s where he was a horseshoer for the NYC Fire Dept. among others. He was very active in Irish American politics.
He died in 1931 after being hit by an automobile.

I don't know if he left from Liverpool, but I don't think so. Hope this helps. Rita
