I am also researching Hehir.My grandfather, John Hehir was born in Clare in 1865, I believe his father was named Thomas.
I have no info before this date.

Surnames: Hehir
According to my family's notes there was also a Thomas born in 1844 in Clare Abbey, County Clare, Ireland (whom I forgot to mention)
There might have been twins Michael and Thomas (1839) - it's possible that this Thomas died and the next child was named after him.

Thomas (1844) apparently spelt his name HEHIR - like your ancestor.
Within the family the spelling varied e.g. O'Hare, O'Hehier, O'Heir, Hare, Hair etc.

It is believed that Thomas went to America.
Hope we can be of some help to each other.


Just a note - the subject header for my previous message should have read Killaloe, County Clare

I just happened on this page again today and noted your reply to my 2/7 post, I had assumed the Ancestry Board would have sent a copy directly to the poster's e-mail box, I guess not.

I am almost 100% sure my grandfather's (John Hehir) dad, Thomas never came to the US. His mother was Anne Casey from Ruan, he was born in Gortmore, Ennis, Clare in 1865. he emigrated in the mid 1880s, settling in Rochester, NY. Many years ago when I was not into researching my roots I do recall hearing that other Hehir cousins emigrated about the same time my grandparents did. These cousins then changed the spelling from Hehir to O'Hare and settled in Long Island. To the best of my knowledge there are no descendants living today from this branch. Other Hehir cousins settled in Meridian CT. I have reason to believe there are descendants from this branch alive someplace today but I have no idea where.
Regards,
Joan F.

Hi Lydia...

I do not believe there is any relationship between the O'Hare/
Hehier/O'Heir possible names you are researching w/ my Hehir ancestors. As you probably know the different Hehir
spellings are most common in Clare. To the very best of my knowledge no one from our branch ever emigrated to Australia.

I could be wrong but I know this family and I believe they were from Killow (a townland of Clare Abbey parish) and not Killaloe which is a much bigger place and a parish in its own right. I have visited the area and did establish where the ruins of the Killow church were. Hope it helps.

yes, it should have read Killow, County Clare.
I went back through my hard copy information and Killaloe was written (but with a question mark) as well as Killow.
County Kerry was just written by accident ( I've got some ancestors from there too)
per page
