Hi Annemarie. I believe you are referring to my grandparents William in Westchester co NY. Also, my father was William and his sister died as an infant. I would love to speak to you more so please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Always wanted to trace my ancestral roots. Thank you and hope to hear fro you soon. Chris
hi annemarie. the healys you speak of are my mothers family.tim healy was my mothers father my grandfather. her name was nora healy who died in 2008.
I just joined your group. My Healy's were from Killavullen, which is all of 5 miles from Mallow. Joanna Healy/Haly married David O'Connor in the parish of Annakissy in 1814 and they had 7 kids. Most of the kids left Cork around the mid 1840's and came to Massachusetts and Connecticut
Hello, I'm researching my family's history and I am looking for anyone that might know anything about my descendents; the Healys of Killavullen/Cloyne Parish. I noticed your reply above. My great, great grandfather was a Cornelius Healy, a family coachman who married Ellen Ellard the daughter of the family he was working for. The Ellards we don't think lived in the parish, they could have come from Churchtown, they were known for breeding race horses and had strong links with Boston USA. Ellen was subsequently disowned by her father, who we think was called George. Cornelius and Ellen went on to have we think 4 children; Patrick (1863), Mary Ann (1865), Ellie (1871 my great grandmother) and the mysterious aunt Mags. By 1892 Cornelius had passed away and Mary Ann and Ellie had left for London, England, we don't know what happened to their mother Ellen. Patrick however seemed to stay in the Killavullen area, we think he married an Ellen Connell in 1883 and they went on to have a son John in 1886. Other names that pop up as witnesses/sponsors are Elizabeth Healy (Cornelius' sister/Mother?) Daniel Murphy, Mary Roche, Michael Burke or Bourke, and Michael and Hannah Neile. Other than Mary Ann's baptism at St Mary's Buttevant, I'm not even sure which church these marriages and baptisms took place, although my great grandmother was a Catholic. If you or anyone could add anything to our family's story it would be wonderful to hear from you. Many thanks for your time. Regards - John Coulter
Sorry for the very late reply, I rarely use this site anymore but I should.
I will look in to it and see if there is a connection
