On February, 7, 1837 John Brosnan married Mary Sheehy. They had the following children:
Thomas, July 7, 1840 (He married Elizabeth O'Sullivan).
John, June 4, 1843 (He married Johanna O'Sullivan).
Mary, March 11, 1846 (She married James Ashe, Kinard East.)
Patrick, Novemeber 3, 1848.
William, April 18l 1852
William, May 7, 1854
Stephen, October 27, 1857
James, November 7, 1860.
I presume Patrick, William Stephen and James emigrated. John married to Johanna o'Sullivan settled in Goulin near Foherough.
A cousin of yours from Foherough is visiting Boston shortly and may like to meet you. You may contact me direct on email@example.com
if you wish to be put in touch with him. Pat.
The Springfield Republican newspaper has the deaths of Patrick and Johanna. More on that later.
