Thanks for responding on Houlihans of Kilkee, Co. Clare. I will contact bob. Ann's death notice in Chicago papers stated "NY and California papers please copy". I believe the relatives in California were named O'Brien. I do not know the names of the relatives in NY or her parents or siblings... yet!

Kaki, I just found a bob@cambert.com who is looking for a Houlihan in Illinois - which is where Chicago is. You might try that.
I am looking for a Houlihan family who left Kilkee about 1875 and emigrated to New York City and included a daughter
named Bridget Agnes who was born about 1862 in, presumably, Kilkee in County Clare.

I'm just getting started on this. If NY papers did copy ANN HOULIHAN MCINERNEY LAMB'S death notice d.4-17-1885 I would think it would list her NY relatives. So if I'm able to get a copy of the notice we'll have the names. BRIDGET'S parents would be ANN'S generation. Do you have their names? I might be able to order the mircofilm of the NY Times Obits thru the Library Share Program-I've done that with books-does it work with archival material? I'll let you know . Good luck with your search and keep in touch.

Houlihan again

Thanks for mentioning the remark about NY in a death notice in a Chicago paper
regarding a Houlihan from Kilkee, County Clare. If you find the New York-to-Chicago Houlihan connection please post. Don't know if I mentioned it but "my" Bridget Agnes Houlihan married a Patrick Joseph Harrigan III; they lived in New
York City approx 1880-1920. Therefore Harrigan "survivors" would also be relevant. O'Brien in Calif rings no bell with me. Thankx.

In response to County Clare, Ireland query for Houlihan, Lamb ---. My husband's grandfather, James Jacob and his brothers Patrick and Edward arrived in this country about 1905. I'll bet that your Joseph and these fellows are related. I know nothing about the brothers other than their names. I have an immigration CD coming that's supposed to list all immigrants. Maybe that will give us a clue as to who traveled to America and when. Sorry that this is all the help I can give. Between the two of us, maybe we can make some headway. It would be wonderful, if on this try, I could find James' parents. Regards, Janet

You have a goldmine!

First, I was born and raised in USA, only spent 14 days ever in Ireland.

Are you saying you have not determined what to do with these placenames? Like where they are in Ireland?

You may know this but....

From "The General Alphabetical Index to the Townlands & Towns of Ireland"- a standard reference work:

Kingscourt Town is in Co. Cavan, Enniskeen Civil Parish, Bailieborough Poor Law Union.

Cootehill Town is also in Co. Cavan, Drumgoon Civil Parish, Cootehill Poor Law Union.

His birth and probably his parents' marriage should be in the Irish Civil records. These are indexed by year and the indices and full records are on microfilm at the LDS and can be ordered at any branch. These are NOT the IGI!

They indexed by registration district, NOT by county. In your case you need to look in the Bailieborough registration district. His parents' marriage will give names of both fathers which will be helpful when you go into religious records to back past 1864, the start of civil records.

I am not an expert on Co. Cavan so I cannot help you further (i.e. with names of religious parishes, dates of records, etc.) I would refer you to the free, on-line, 80-page guide to Ireland research on the LDS web site:

www.familysearch.org/sg/Ireland.html

For more info on Civil records see the free on-line article and the sub links in it at the link below.

Your ancestor has left you a goldmine of clues. Follow the trail!

Best regards,
