Hello well i'm trying to find out more of my g.g grandmother Bridget CONNOR born abt 1844, County Kerry or Cork i want to find about her siblings all i know is that father Michael CONNOR. Bridget married Daniel HORGAN abt 1862 Kerry or Cork. My Cousin Shirley said her father said family came from Cork but most of her children born in Castleisland so she must been born Cork then must of moved to Kerry. There children Mary HORGAN abt 1864. Timothy HORGAN. abt 1865. Kate HORGAN 1866. Norah HORGAN 1868. Daniel HORGAN 1869 & Bridget HORGAN 1869. Husband Daniel HORGAN died abt 1870 and Bridget remarried John BREEN 1872, Ballymacelligott, Tralee. We found out that says Bridget's maiden name was CAHILL not CONNOR on Marrige Certificate so i'm thinking that Bridget may been youngest and staying with realitives who were CAHILL We would like solve mystery why had two names. Bridget and John BREEN immigrated to Timaru, in the Canterbury Region New Zealand 1875 with Bridget's daughters and sons went to the USA. Bridget & John's son Michael BREEN also went to NZ on the Rakaia Ship. And On Bridget's children all say maiden name CONNOR so that must be her name at birth. well Bridget's Cousin's or Nephew and Neice John CONNOR 1856 Maglass,Ballymacelligott Amelia CONNOR 1857 Maglass, Ballymacelligott. Immigrated to NZ 1876 with Kate and Bridget HORGAN. Thats also were Bridget & John BREEN were from aswell. if Any one knows of this family or a descendant would be very intrested. and John CONNOR changed name to O'CONNOR he died 1930 NZ. Amelia died 1933. NZ and Bridget BREEN died 1899, Timaru, NZ. Family may of changed with the O two
