My Grandmother Bridie (Bridget) Cotter was born in Farranfore, Killarney, Ireland.
Her Father was William her mother was Nora(h) McCarthy Cotter. I have found the family in the 1901 and 1911 Censuses. Siblings listed as living were John, James, Mary, and Hannah and Nora(h).
I am looking form information on further ancestors and descendants. Grandma and her sister Hannah emigrated to Manhattan, New York. They married. Grandma to William Heffernan from Templeglantine, Limerick. Hannah to Irish-American Edward Foley. Granddad and Grandmom moved from Manhattan to the Bronx, then moved to Long Island the Foleys stayed in the Bronx.
Her sister Nora(h) married William Jamison and emigrated to England. They had a daughter Isabel who marrried Lionel Ryan Winstanley and had a son William.
Grandma had Cotter cousins here in the Bronx, I believe they are John's sons. 4 of the brothers that Immigrated to America somewhere in the 1950s. Michael Cotter, Thomas Cotter, William Cotter and James Cotter. William Cotter was an armoured car guard and was killed in 1976. His body was sent back to Ireland for burial. Michael I believe is still living and in his 70s or 80s. His wife's name is Mary, I do not know her maiden name, they were married in Chicago. Thomas went back to Ireland, and I am told James joined a branch of the Military Service here and settled in California.
The McCarthy side had relatives here in the USA. Mary McCarthy is a relative of my Grandmother's Mother but not sure how as have no other information on Nora(h) herself.
Mary McCarthy was born in New Jersey and had a brother James lived in New York. Mary McCarthy married Patrick Dermody. They had many children. The 4 girl children married a Hart, O'Hare, Hopper, and Del Rosso.
They were also related to a Reverend (Monsignor) Eugene McCarthy who was a pastor at St. Peter and Pauls Church in the Bronx. I am not sure if was Nora(h)s brother or a cousin.
Recently have come to find out that my mother is a first of Cousin of Liam Cotter who died on July 11, 2011.
Any info would be great
