The children born in Co. Kerry were McCarthy's? I have a Patrick Tangney I keep coming across. He was from Killarney, came to US in 1899 at the age of 19 and went to Southington, Connecticut. Not sure if he had any relation to my great grandmother, Julia O'Rourke also from Killarney. They came on the same boat, my ggrandmother was only 11 and Patrick Tangney is listed above her on the ship manifest. Can't figure out who she came to US with.

Found 2 Patrick Tangney's in Connecticut census from 1920, one was a fireman in New London, CT and the other one lived in Hartford Ct.

I have found 3 other Tangney's from Killarney that went to Southington in 1900. Daniel (age 60), May (age 50) and Mick (age 30). Actually, the ellis island records show there were a lot of Tangney's that came to US.

Please let me know if there is any connection with the Tangney's and the O'Rourke's.
