I am actually tracing two McCarthy lines.
* Charles McCarthy was born @ 1800/1805 - a really rough guess - at Coolboy, Caheragh, Cork. He married before 1821 * Mary OSullivan. Their children are:
2)* Timothy Dennis McCarthy was born 31 July 1821 at Coolboy, Caheragh, Cork, Ireland and died after 1901 in Co.Cork. He married Ainne( Anne ) Leonard who was born @ 1824 at Barnagowlane, Skibbereen, Co.Cork. ( Barnagowlane is not the village of same name but their homeplace which they inherited from Ainnes family who had lived there for several generations. It is located in Caheragh near Abbeystrowery and Skibbereen. Timothy was the first of his McCarthy line at Barnagowlane even though there are other McCarthys there.) Their children are:
2)* Florence McCarthy , born March 12, 1850 at Barnagowlane, Skibbereen, Cork. He married February 12, 1881 at Killeenbagh, Skibbereen, Cork to * Ellen McCarthy. He died June 23, 1935 at Barnagowlane and Ellen died there June 24, 1940. ( One of their sons, my grandfather, Daniel Joseph McCarthy, born October 3, 1883 at Barnagowlane, emigrated to US in 1905 and settled in Newton center/Brighton, Mass.)
*Ellen was born 1854 and christened December 27, 1854 at Lissane, Drimoleague, Cork,Ireland . ( I believe St.Comghalls) She has one known sister, Mary McCarthy who married Michael Kiely and emigrated to California where she died 1919. Ellen is the daughter of * Cornelius McCarthy, born @ 1822 at Lissane, Cork,Ireland, and * Mary Collins, born @ 1826 and married @ 1853.
I am interested in learning of any other children for these families and in discovering their own parentage. Any advice, inspiration or information gratefully accepted.
