Would like to exchange information about the McCarthys of Mitchelstown. John McCarthy (b.1795) married Honora Sullivan and their children were: Dennis (b. c1815); Thomas (b.1817) in Marshallstown; Johana (b. 1819) in Marshallstown); Patrick (b. 1822; Timothy (b. c1824) in Knockagarry; Mary (b.1826) in Knockagarry; Honora (b.c1828 in Knockagarry and Daniel born 1830.

Most of the children were in America by 1835.

If anyone is interested in this family please contact me.

Thanks.

One of my great-great-grandfather's sisters married a McCarthy. Johanna (Joan) Roche of Castleterry, Ballindangan, Mitchelstown, married Patrick McCarthy, probably in the 1830's. Their daughter Ellen was born in 1835 in the parish of Mitchelstown, followed by Mary in 1840, Bess, JOhn in 1847, Johanna in 1852, Kitty, and Michael. McCarthy Baptismal sponsors included Mary, Patrick, Julia, and Elizabeth. Families they married into:
Lee, Rea, Moher, Keefe, and Luddy.

I'm looking for information on Timothy McCarthy. He emigrated from Ireland to US (possibly through Virginia?) and settled in Ann Arbor Michigan by 1864. The Timothy you mentioned is about the right age. Can you tell me anything about him and his descendants? Thanks so much.

I am also researching my relatives from Mitchelstown, Dennis McCarthy born in 1775, married Johanna Dillon around 1800 and emigrated to Canada in 1825. Their children were Mary, Owen, Patrick, John, William (my ggrandfather), Johanna and Ellen. They lived in Douro, Ontario, Canada. Do any of these names fit with your ancestors?

I am also researching a Timothy McCarthy who was born about 1824 in Cork. From comparing to other family trees, I believe he came from Knockagarry, married someone named Mary, and moved to America between 1830 and 1854. He is my great great great grandfather. I would love to exchange information with anyone who is researching the same line.

Timothy, who went by Tim later in life, told him son Michael, who told my great aunt Bonnie, that the family is descended from the king of Munster. I doubt it to be true, but it is worth repeating.

He settled in Indiana and Michael was born in 1865, so it is possible that a link is missing in the family history there (since Tim would have been 40), which would account for the number of chilren I have found references to (10). Michael later moved to Wyoming after having Blair Blodgett (my great grandfather) who instead moved to Virginia and had Thomas Blair (my grandfather) who lived in a dozen states throughout his life.

You could check the 1901 or 1911 census in Ireland at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/
Searching mc carthy; co. cork; electoral district (DED)Mitchelstown in the 1901 census gets 45 hits (including a William, Ellen and Bridget McCarthy, who are brother and sisters, all in their 50's, living in Thomas St., Mitchelstown). If you know what part of the town or townland Denis was from that would help narrow it down, especially if members of the family were still there in 1901.

http://historicgraves.com/ has data from surveys of some Irish graveyards including Marshalstown and Brigown (Mitchelstown) where some McCarthys are buried. There is a good search facility on the site.
