Surnames: QUIGLEY, COONEY, LACEY, Lacy
Interested in corresponding with anyone researching John Quigley and Honora Cooney, believed to be from Parish Castletownarra, emigrated to Chicago with daughter Nora in 1849, and had a total of ten children. Another relative Penelope Cooney appears as godmother to Nora's sister at St. Patrick's Church in Chicago in early 1860s. Said to be distant relatives of Archbishop James Edward Quigley born in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada in 1855, baptized at St. Gregory's Church in Oshawa. Archbishop's emigrant ancestors were James Quigley, and Mary Lacey[Lacy] who left the townland Carrigatogher, Parish of Burgesbeg(Youghal) in 1847. Archbishop's grandparents were Martin Quigley and Elizabeth Kelly, and "Honest" John Lacy. Malachy Quigley, another son of Martin and Elizabeth Quigley, married in Oshawa to Margaret Killen in 1844. Many descendants of all of these families.

Surnames: Lacey
Am researching Mary Lacy/Lacey from Tipperary born 15 August 1840. Father's name was Peter Lacy, unsure about the mother's name-difficult to read the writing on the marriage certificate, but it it looks like Rooney- I wonder if it is Cooney spelt with a "K" She emigrated to Australia where she married James McCarthy at Beechworth ,Australia in 1862. Many descendants. Hope to hear from you. Mary McCarthy

My ggrandfather, Edward Lacey, was born in Carrigatoher, Nenagh in 1826. His parents were John Lacey and Judith(nee Farrell). His sister was Mary the mother of Archbishop Quigley. She married James Quigley and emigtated to Canada in 1847. My ggrandfather emigrated to the USA in 1848. I have been to Ireland a few times and many Quigleys are still there in and around Nenagh. The old Lacey house still stands on the " Old Road" next to the old Quigley farm. The Laceys' were tenant farmers under a Capt Finch and bought the farm in 1906 under the land Acquisition Act. The present owner is John Grace. John Lacey lost a leg in a mining accident and was given a job as a tollgate tender on the Dublin Rd.

I don't know how the John Lacey became known as "Honest John." I found this reference in the Chicago Irish nationalist newspaper THE CITIZEN in an article published at the time of Archbishop Quigley's elevation to the Episcopal See. It talks about him visiting his Lacey relatives in Ireland in 1879 during his return to the states after his studies in Europe. If I recall correctly I think it mentioned also a Lacey uncle of his that was either a priest or prelate in Tipperary at the time.

Surnames: Sullivan, Murphy,Maseeth

While researching my Great-Grandmother I came across her marriage announcement in the local paper in 1907. The name Archbishop Quigley is mentioned as being the Uncle of a Miss Josephine E. Maseeth, who was a bridesmaid [Maid of Honor] for my Great-Grandmother Ella Katherine Murphy. I do not know if Ella and Josephine were related, since I haven’t been able to connect them, but they may be.


Perhaps something else in the article may yield clues for you.

Below is the full article.

As is appears in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle on Wednesday, January 23, 1907.
Sullivan-Murphy
Helen Katharine Murphy Becomes Bride of J. F. Sullivan, of New York.
At the Church of the Blessed Sacrament Miss Helen Katherine Murphy yesterday morning at 9:90 o'clock became the bride of James Frederick Sullivan, of New York. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. John Quinn, of Mount Read, a cousin of the bride, assisted by Rev. Thomas F. Connors, rector of the church. The sanctuary was adorned with palms and carnations. Seated there, aside from the two celebrants of the nuptial mass, were: Rev. J. J. Donnelly, of Victor; Rev. Father Donlon, of Scranton, Pa.; Rev. J. J. Breanihan, of Churchville: Rev. James Doyle, of Whitesborough; Rev. J. J. Kelley, of Spencerport, and three clergymen, of Rochester; Rev. Dr. A. E. Brees, of St. Bernard’s Seminary; Rev. Augustine M. O'Neill, of Immaculate Conception Church; Rev. D. J. Curran, of Corpus Christi Church; Rev. J. H. O'Brien, of St. Augustine's Church; Rev. William Glevson, of St. Mary's Church, and Rev. James A Hickey, of Holy Apostle Church. Miss Katherine Butler, the organist, played the bridal chorus from "Lohengrin" when the bridal party entered and Mendelssohn's March when it retired. Parts in the mass were sung by Miss Dorsey, soprano and William F. Predinore.
Miss Josephine E. Maseeth was bridesmaid and J. A. Henneasy, of Auburn, was the groomsman. The bride was gowned in white chiffon over taffeta, elaborately trimmed with duchess lace. She wore a sunburst of diamonds, the groom's gift to her, and carried a mother-of-pearl prayer book and white carnations. Her maid wore a white embroidered robe over taffeta, with bodies of pink velvet and carried pink carnations.
A wedding breakfast was served to some fifty guests at the home of the bride's sister and brother-in-law, Dr. and Mrs. F. W. Maloney, No. 388 West Avenue. Beautiful decorations in pink and green decked the rooms. Among those present from out of town were: Mrs. A. Sullivan, mother of the groom, and sons; W. J. and J. O. Sullivan, of Providence; M. E. Sullivan, also a brother of the groom. J. J. Maloney, Louis Trieg and W. H. Plunkett, of New York; Mrs. Ellis and Miss Bampfield, of Niagara Falls; Mr. and Mrs. William Daly and daughter, of Brockport, and Mrs. Thomas Fennell, of Canandaigua. Telegrams of congratulations were received from friends of the groom throughout the state. The bride's gift to her maid was a handsome bracelet. The groom gave to his man and usher pearl scarf pins.
Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan's wedding trip is to include Washington and Atlantic City. After March 10th they will be at home at the Van Cortland apartments. Park Avenue and Ninety-Sixth Street. New York. Mr. Sullivan is connected with the Daprato Statuary Company of that city.
Before the marriage the bridal party was entertained by Miss Maseeth, who gave a dinner, at which time Archbishop Quigley of Chicago, uncle of the hostess, bestowed his Episcopal blessing on the bride and groom. 8howers were given by Miss Schwab and Miss Popp. All the members of the wedding party, excepting bride and groom, were entertained last night at Cloak’s.

Tom Cook,

The archbishop's uncle was Fr. Edward Quigley, born in Cashel in 1810 and died August 2, 1883. He is buried in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery, Rochester. He was ordained (according to one source) on September 15, 1850 (40 years old?) or, according to the Buffalo diocesan archives in 1837. Where he was between ordination in '37 or '50 and his first known assignment in '61 is unknown. In either case he may have been ordained in Ireland (or France)and so in the intervening years he may simply have been finding his way in the new land before being accepted by the Rochester diocese (all of Western NY State.) He was stationed at Lima, NY in 1861, was assistant at the Rochester cathedral 1863-65, pastor of Buffalo's Immaculate Conception 1865-69, where his nephew, young James Edward lived while studying at the LaSalle Christian Brothers' St. Joseph's College Prep. He was pastor at St. Vincent de Paul in Attica, NY 1879-83, where he died.

GreenMan:
Josephine Masseth (correct spelling) was a sister of the Archbishop. She and Mr. M.(no name found) Masseth had three children, all of whom were at the archbishop's funeral in Chicago: Fr. John Masseth, Lillian Masseth and Mrs. Michael McInerney. My uncle, Fr. Daniel P. Quigley, cousin of the archbishop, was also among the family attendants. I doubt there was any blood relationship between Josephine Masseth and Ella Katherine Murphy, just the best of friends.
