Keenan, McCaffrey & Lindsey by Paul Thomas Keenan from Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, Scotland
28. November 2008
Hi everyone a fantastic site, keep up the great work. I know from personal experience how helpful everyone is at 'the Den' where I saw the record of the marriage of my gr gr grandparents Thomas Keenan and Cecilia McCaffrey married at St Johns in 1854 there were other Keenans and Byrne's and McCaffreys in the records however, not sure of any definate connections. Thomas and Cecilia came to Johnstone, Scotland in 1857 and a few others from the parish followed across the Irish sea. I think my Keenans were in Loughans townland but not sure. Thomas had a brother William who married Sarah Thompson in 1850 and a possible brother/cousin who married Catherine Treanor in 1853 (all St John's) Their parents were John Keenan and Anne nee Lindsey/Lindsay both born c 1895 and we think they originated outside the parish or even the county Down. Cecilia's bc 1830 had a sister Margaret 1832 and Elizabeth b 1838 who married a John Keenan (another brother or cousin)?parents were John McCaffrey and Margaret Byrne both c 1800. If anyone can give any info. on where Keenans/Lindsays McCaffreys and Byrnes lived or where they originated I would be very grateful. Even the smallest piece of seemingly useless fragments might be very significant/important. Also, if anyone needs access to Scots data please let me know as the mill factory skills honed in Tullylish in 1830-1860 period were in great demand around West Renfrewshire in the mid 19th century and it seems that many left Tullylish to live in Scotland or to save the fare to the US. if you lost some people they may not all have made it to the US directly and many spent 5/10/15 years before going to US... many stayed on in Scotland. I wish everyone a peaceful and holy Christmas and hope to get over to your lovely town again in 2009 Slan go Foill Paul

Reilly, Prior, Doran, by Lynda Poyroo from London
09. August 2008
Great site. My mother, Margaret Reilly, was born in Gilford, although all the family moved to England in 1938. My Uncle, Francis Patrick Reilly is remembered on the war memorial in Gilford. He was just 21 years old when he died. My Grandmother was Margaret Prior and my Grandfather was Edward Reilly and would be happy to hear from any family who believe they are related to us. Thanks for the photo of Kieran Prior.
Comment:
Thanks Lynda. What about sending us some photos of yourself?
