Timothy J. Horgan was originally from County Kerry, Ireland, from the town of Killorglin. He left out of Co. Cork to come to America. I have been able to locate his baptism record for County Kerry on the Irishgenealogy website.

I have not yet been able to find which relatives were resident of Co. Cork. But they originated in Killorglin. That's where Grampy visited back in the 1980s. We still have family living there.

Hello Peter,

If DNA testing is of interest to you please see my recent post:

The Horgans in the project so far do show a significant relationship to each other.

Hi Michael,

I administer a 2 1/2 year old DNA project that covers the name Horgan and many variants, including Harrigan, Hourigan, Organ, etc.

The project has carved out one group of Horgans sharing a similar genetic signature - these group members have Clare, Kerry, or Cork ancestry as far as they know.

I saw your posting on genforum in which you mention a presence in Missouri:

Coincidentally, several descendants of a Michael Hourigan who lived in Missouri have recently just joined the project. The family went by the name Smith. We don't know a lot about Michael Hourigan, except that he was born probably between 1820 and 1830 in Ireland, lived in Salem, Dent Co, Missouri, and died in 1882. The 1880 census record shows he was considerably older than his wife Caroline Smith, whom he married in 1879 (in the census he was 50, she was 33). She had a son from before the marriage, and we are all wondering if perhaps he had a family prior to his union with Caroline.

The project is always seeking new members. Our website is here. Please message me or email me if you want further details.
