Hi Phil: My Great Great grandmother was Mary Kennedy from Clogh, Co.
Kilkenny. She was married to a collier named Michael Comerford (1832-1875). Their
daughter Julia Comerford b.1861 in Clogh was my Great Grandmother who
immigrated to the US (Bronx NY) in 1884 and married John Mulhall from
Ballinakill, Co.Laois. The only other info I have on my Kennedy ancestors from Clog is another Mary Kennedy who was my Great Grandmother’s cousin and lived in Philadelphia. She was the maid of honor at my Great Grandmother’s wedding in 1885. I visited Clogh a couple of times in the 1980s. It appears to be a very small village, so I don’t know how many Kennedy families were there at the time. I remember searching the graveyard around the church. I would greatly appreciate hearing about your Kennedy line.

Thank you,

Hi Thomas, I was delighted to receive your reply.

You are the 3rd 'Kennedy' cousin from the US I've made countact with since I started my Family Tree.

I'm sending you an invitation to the Kennedy Family Tree which I hope you'll accept.

There are numerous Mary Kennedys on my Kennedy Family Tree so I hope your ancestor is among them. My father, Dan Kennedy, believed that all the Kennedys in Clogh were related so I included every Kennedy from Clogh I found in my research.

Hi Thomas,
I was delighted you accepted my invitation to view my Family Tree. I thought the Mary Kennedy born in 1830 might well be your ancestor! Julia's bridesmaid might be the Mary Ann Kennedy born in the 1860s - father Frank & mother Kate Comerford - emigrated to the US 1880s. The two Marys might be related through the Kennedys & the Comerfords. Can you confirm your email address as lawhiteman@aol.com - I have tried, without success, to contact you directly at that email address. Regards Phil Kennedy

Hello Phil, my gggrandfather was John Kennedy but I don't know where he was born for definite. His son my g grandfather Francis Joseph Kennedy b Clogh (according to military pension records) abt 1885 m Elizabeth Ann Shaw in Lanchester, Durham, England 1908, they had 11 children. Don't know if this relates to any of your lines? I don't know the name of his spouse or any other offspring. Sorry but as this is one of my "walls" this is all the info I have at the present.

Hi, Delighted to hear from you. So far I have only found one Francis Kennedy, born in Clogh. He emigrated to the US. Very interesting that your ancestor was in the Army - a great source of information. My father's 1st cousin was Joseph Kennedy & he had a son Frank ( born about 1960 ). As I'm sure you know the same names keep turning up in Irish families. My father was of the opinion that all the Kennedys in Clogh were related so going on that alone we must be connected. My grandfather had a brother John - don't know much about hiim. If you give me your email address I'll send you an invitation to view my Family Tree - then you can see all the Kennedys I could find in Clogh. I've made contact with a few Kennedy decendants in the US & the UK, who like yourself, only knew their ancestor came from Clogh & had no concrete information. Let's hope we make the connection. Times were tough back in the 1800s. Most people were illiterate & many births/deaths were not recorded. Regards, Phil Kennedy Foley, Kilkenny City, Ireland
