In 1856 Galway the Griffith Valuation took place.

At this time there were Martin Concannon's in the following
Parish's. Addergoole, Kilbennan, 2 x Kilcummin, Killosolan, Moylough, Bekan, Drum x 2, Kilcolman, none with a townland
called Dunmae nor is it recognized in placenames at that time.

350 Donohoe's in Galway, in many parish's and townlands neither has the name Dunmae.

I will look into this tomorrow and get back to you.

Hi, that may be Dunmore, Co Galway. There are many many Concannons's in Dunmore, who are my relatives.

I have a Martin Concannon - no information on him at all, except that he had a brother Michael, b 1850 d 1900. He was my great grandfather.

I will investigate if this is your link.

Dunmae was taken from the 1911 England census, and we all know the census takers wrote what they thought they heard and spelled it as they thought it should be spelled.
I don't have any family for the Martin Concannon in my file.
Where did your Concannon family live in the USA? In "my" Martin family connection I have one that ended up in New York and my connection ended up in Detroit, Wayne Co, Michigan.

Hi Nanette.
My Concannons are now in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Margaret Murphy (Concannon) was daughter of Thomas Concannon, brother to my great grandfather. Margaret b 1878 in Carrownagur, Dunmore Co Galway, and moved to the US - not sure when or where to exactly.

Her descendants now live in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Also do bear in mind that in 1847 & 1849 the Great Famine was in its fullness of death and destruction, misery and emigration. Parish baptismal records for Dunmore parish are very comprehensive from 1833 to late 1845.

Thanx for letting me know Chris. Maybe we will find a connection somewhere along the line. I have discovered that there are two Martin Concannon's born about 1847 Ireland both married to a Mary. One is Mary Donohoe, the other Mary Dunoon(or close to that).
