My great grandmother was Bridget Agnes Ruane Burke. She arrived in New York City just after 1900, and married Edward Joseph Burke. She had two sisters, Anna Ruane Cunningham and Kate Ruane Conlin. The Cunningham branch may be in New Jersey. I've met Alice and Christine, two Cunningham cousins, only once. They were very blonde and fair like Grandmommy was. I don't know if the Conlin branch came over. Our Burke branch is very large-most of us are in either New York or New Jersey right now. We are eager to know the Ruane side!

Our Ruanes come from the same county! Patrick Joseph Ruane moved to Jersey City, Hudson County, NJ. Married Ellen Kirrane. Children include Martin Joseph who married Katherine Murphy. All affiliated with St. Patrick's Church. Some buried in Holy Name Cemetery in Jersey City. We currently live in NJ. Email me at jhart1@home.com Thanks and hope we connect!

My paternal grandfather was John Ruane from County Mayo. He was married to Ann or Anna Judge first and had 2 sons, John Vincent (my father) and Martin. After she died, he married an Irish woman named Rose. John Ruane lived in Bayonne, NJ until he died. What struck me about your earlier message is that the family plot is in Holy Name Cemetery in Jersey City. There is a big stone with the name RUANE carved on it on the plot. How many Ruanes are buried in that cemetery? Relatives, perhaps?

I haven't actually been to the cemetery to look at the stones. I'll have to wait now, since NJ is under 14" of snow! Our Ruanes are also buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, which is the older of the two Catholic cemeteries. Let's keep in touch. Jackie

Hi Jackie,
I was very glad to hear from you. Yes, let's stay in touch.
My other siblings live in south Jersey (Maple Shade and Cape May Courthouse) and I may be able to travel back to see them later this year. If I do, I'll let you know as one of the things I'll want to do is to go to the cemetery.
Good luck with the snow.

I am researching the Kirrane Surname.

Can you tell me anything more about ELLEN KIRRANE?

Thanks.

Our Ellen Kirrane (@1851-1932) was born in Slievgorrif, County Mayo, Ireland. Her parents were Rodger Kirrane Mary Barrett (no dates). She married Patrick Thomas Ruane (@1836-1914) in 1869. He was from Ballykilleen, Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, Ireland. His parents were John Ruane (@1810-1856/1864) and Ellen (@1816-May 19, 1876). That's about all we know that far back. It's pretty sketchy! You can email me at jhart1@home.com Thanks for writing!

Dear Barbara, John Ruane from Bayonne was my great uncle. He and Rose were always at my house when we were growing up in Bayonne. Uncle John is my grandfather's brother. His name was Jim. They also had a sister Anna and Margaret. Anna went to live in Philadelphia and Aunt Margaret lived in California. One of her children still lives in Staten Island. My siblings and I have been to the homestead in Bunniconlon, Mayo and have akwayshad a great time. Write if you would like more information.

WOW! We had no idea you even existed! WOW! Our parents died young and we weren't part of the Staten Island circle, so we missed this part of our history. That missing connection is one reason I came to this board in the first place. I called my sisters last night and they're over the moon! Diane said that she had always felt that we were a small goup alone, one that got smaller and lost all connections after our parents died. It enlarged a bit as we had children and they had children, but was still an alone group. And now, even though she doesn't know you, she has a sense or reconnection. As do I. Please, we want more info. There a 4 of us, 3 girls (Barbara, Diane and Kathleen), 1 boy (Raymond). I'm in Santa Clara, CA and the others are in south Jersey. We are hoping that you are willing to talk to us off the board. Please email me and I will send you my phone number. If you'd rather not, at least tell us what you know about my maternal grandmother and the Dugans, if you know.

Heart in Hands,
Barbara
WOW!
