Does anyone have any information about the following families?
Hugh O'Brien born 1830s-1840s
died ? buried Drumintee, County Armagh, Ireland
married Margaret McDonald
known children: Mary, born 1867.
Hugh's parents were Owen O'Brien and Bridget Finnegan.
I found a record for the birth of a Mary Breen - father Hugh Breen , mother Margaret McDonald, born 21 Sep 1867, Meigh, County Armagh. I think these are very likely to be the same people and I was very interested to find them under the name Breen.
There are 5 known siblings of Hugh, 4 emigrated to Australia, including my GG Granfather, Michael O'Brien. Hugh, and a sister, Mary, remained in Ireland.
O'Brien family history, based on letters from Mary to her sister in Australia, have Mary listed as marrying Michael Kenny.
They had the following children:
Maryanne Kenny (died as a child)
Mary Ellen Kenny
Interestingly, on irishgenealogy.ie I found a record for the marriage of a Mary Breen to Michael Kenny in 1871.
I also found a record which could possibly be one of Mary's daughters
Maggie Kenny m. William J. Leathem 1900, County Armagh
Does anyone have any information about these people?
Any help would be most appreciated.
I have been very interested to find (what appears to be)Hugh and his sister Mary under the name Breen.
