Patrick J. Hourihan

I am trying to trace my branch of the Hourihan tree. My grandfather, Patrick J. Hourihan, was born in Durrus, Bantry, Ire. in April 1868 or 1866.His parents were Eugene Hourihan and Catherine Hazel. He immigrated to USA in 1888 and came through NYC. I believe he had a brother named John Joseph, but I am not certain. He moved to Elizabeth, NJ He married Mary Hourihan (maiden name Hourihan) who I believe was born in NY I have an affidavit that was signed in 1938 by Margaret Flynn who was born in Bantry and states that her family knew the Hourihans from Durrus for over 100 years and visited one another frequently. I think the affidavit was filed in support of a social security application. If anyone has any knowledge of the Durrus Hourihans let me know. I plan to go to Bantry on October 5th and would like to have as much informatiion as I can muster before I leave JAH
