I am looking for information on James Hehir or Heheir born 1823 in County Galway. He married Mary Connor and they emigrated to the U.S., settling in Nashville, TN, before 1860.

Scrolling through old posts and found yours. This is the family of my gr, great grandmother, Mary Hehir who married Michael Hehir (yes, same family name), they had ten children, all emigrated about 1884, settled in Binghamton, NY, USA. Mary's sister Margaret married Michael Nagle of Teermaclane and we have definitive proof due to two of Michael and Mary's daughters visiting family in Ireland in 1910 - when they returned through Ellis Island they listed their Uncle Michael Nagle as their nearest relative in Ireland.
