Patrick Lyons & Nora O'Neil of Kilsheelan, Cnty Tipp., Cork, Ireland & Saugus MA
Posted by: Paula Lyons-Myrick (ID *****6883) Date: April 22, 2012 at 12:44:57
  of 1660

Seeking information regarding the family of Patrick Lyons, who was born abt 1858 to John Lyons and Margaret Quinn in Kilsheelan, County Tipperary, Ireland. Patrick married Nora O'Neil. Nora was born abt 1862 to Michael or John O'Neil and Mary Desmond in Cork (Cork City?) Ireland. Patrick and Nora immigrated to the Saugus, Massachusetts area abt 1875 to 1880 and married in Lynn Massachusetts in 1885.

There is possibly a link between Patrick Lyons and a William Lyons who married a Nancy Hoolihan in Kilsheelan Ireland in the 1860's and who had two children named Mary and Ned Lyons. I believe this William and Patrick's father may have been brothers.

Patrick and Nora had 13 children between the years of 1886 and 1903, these being John, Mary "Mamie", Willie, Maurice, James, Margaret, Agnes, Rose, Annie Louise and Nora Treasa (twins), Henry Thomas, Alice and William.

Patrick had several siblings also born in Kilsheelan, County Tipperary, Ireland, including brothers William, Thomas and Michael Lyons. These three brothers also immigrated to Massachusetts (Worcester, Fall River, Saugus and Lynn) and another brother, James Lyons, immigrated and settled in Yonkers New York. Patrick's sister, Bridget Lyons, it appears, remained in Ireland.

Once they had immigrated to the US, Patrick's brother's married as follows: William married Mary Ahaesy, Thomas married Hannah Sullivan, Michael married Catherine T. White and James married Mary (maiden name unknown).

Nora had two brothers, Maurice O'Neil and Jeremiah of Jerry O'Neil, who also immigrated to the Saugus & Lynn area of Massachusetts. Nora's brother Jeremiah reportedly never married and her brother Maurice married Catherine McManus.

Any information you may have regarding this family would be appreciated.
