Flahives from Kilrush Ireland
Posted by: John J. Flahive III Date: November 07, 2001 at 16:43:49
  of 74

I'm John Flahive originally from Joliet, IL but most recently I'm living in the Augusta Georgia area with my with Tamara. My dad is John Joseph Flahive, Jr. of Minooka, IL and my grandpa is John Joseph Flahive, Sr. of Joliet, IL. Grandpa says his father (also John) was from Denison, IA and died of a lightning strike while farming before my grandpa was born in August 1917. His mother died of anemia before he was one year old, so he never met his parents. He was raised by his Uncle and Aunt who were from Kilrush, Ireland.

Does anyone know of any Flahives who are from Kilrush or still living in Kilrush? My grandpa is 84 and his healthiest days are behind him. He is heavy into genealogy and it would warm his heart to learn of others with whom he shares a heritage. I would like to know too so I can pass the info down to my son after he is born in late November.
