I don't know if it's any help, but I took a photo of a Coughlan's Pub on one of the main streets in Kinsale this past August?

Surnames: Lordan/Coughlin/Mullen/Riordan/Gubbins/Healy
My grandmother was born in Kinsale - actually Brown Mill town. Parents: Dennis Coughlin and Honora (Nora) Lordan. Their children were as follows:
William (Joe) 1864 - never married
Catherine - 1865 - married Charles Crump - 6 children
Jack -
Ellen (Nelle) - 1868 - Michael Beggs and then Michael Burke - 2 children
Dennis - 1869 - Mollie
Ann (Johanna) - 1870 - John Gallagher (no children)
Daniel - married Nellie O'Leary - 7 children
Patrick - 1875 - Handa Furlong, 2 children
Mary - 1876 - William OConnor - 4 children - William, Ann don't know others

Story goes that Nora Lordan's parents were both named Lordan and that their marriage brought together 2 branches of the family.

Dennis was apparently an overseer on an estate - daughter nelle wrote to a cousin (Jack Nyhan) that the family wanted to emigrate and wanted a sponsor. The family did not know she had done this. Well, cousin Jack was all for it, so the custom was that the oldest 2 went first - my grandmother didn't want to leave Ireland, but thankfully, she did leave. They came through Philadelphia because it was $6.00 cheaper than going through New York. All of the children headed for Chicago and most of them are buried at Mt. Carmel cemetery in Hillside, Ill.

I'm still researching the Irish family and am about to employ a genealogist in Kinsale. It's such a beautiful spot - I can understand my grandmother's reluctance to leave.

Do you know what year she wrote to her cousin, Jack Nyhan?
My grandfather was John "Jack" Nyhan, who changed his
spelling upon entering the US in 1908, to Nihan. His father
was William and mother was Catherine Sullivan, their parents
where James and Ellen O'Brien.

Hi Peggy - I'm looking at some information on a Hanorah "Nora" Lordan, b. 1838 (about) in Ireland, who married a John Marsh, b. abt 1833 in NY. They lived in Centralia, Marion County, IL in 1880 with daughters Katie, 13, Mary, 12, Nora, 7, and Sophie, 6. All but Katie were born in IL, and Katie was born in MI. Is this woman related to your Hanorah Lordan? It seems so unusual a name to be coincidence. Best Regards, Cinda Marsh

Dear Cinda,

Quite a series of coincidences - according to my mother, her grandparents - Hannorah Lordan Coughlin's parents represented the merger of 2 parts of the same family - both named Lordan. They stayed in Ireland throughout the famine - my grandmother, Nora Lordan Coughlin's oldest daughter, was named Katherine and she came to the states in 1890. She and her husband, Charlie Crump, lived in Chicago, Heyworth, and Rankin, Illinois. The entire Coughlin group came to the Chicago area in the early 1890's. They were sponsored by their cousin, Jack Nyhan.

Any of this sound at all familiar? Since my family has this Lordan merger back in the 1830's or so, I suspect that we are probably distantly related.

Sorry to be so late responding. Our Jack Nyhan was in Chicago before 1890 which is the year my grandmother came to this country. I can't get over how many of the Irish had the same name - just amazing to me.

I really don't know much - Hanorah and John Marsh married in Michigan, and moved to Centralia, IL. She was born in County Cork, Ireland, and died in Centralia, and that's all I know. I just couldn't imagine two Hanorah Lordans not being related. An interesting mystery. I'll let you know if I ever solve it....Cinda

I know this reply is about 4 years overdue, but we must be kissing cousins! How much do you know about the Lordan family - my Coughlin relatives - all from Chicago originally - would really love to know more about that branch of the family. I live in Wisconsin, so I'm just up the road from Chicago.
