In Reply to: Mahoney/ Smith by Sharon Warnock of 1879

My husband's gg grandfather was James Smith who was married to Bridget Mahoney (May 5, 1843-Jan. 10, 1905) who settled in Melrose, Iowa. His other gg grandfather in this line (thru mother Phyllis Smith, whose mother was Agnes Crall and father was James Smith m. Ella O'Brien) was Patrick O'Brien (b. Kerry, Co. Dingle IRE) who married Catherine (Kate) Mahoney in Norwich, Connecticut in 1866. Also buried at Melrose Johanna & Michael Mahoney - the parents of Catherine M. (Kate) Mahoney O'Brien. According to their tombstones, James Smith was born in Co. Cavan and Bridget in County Cork. Since Bridget & Catherine Mahoney's children married, we don't know their exact relationship but were told Irish Catholics did not marry closer than 3rd cousins so they must not have been too close. Hope this is not too confusing - I was excited to see the Smith/Mahoney header. Good hunting & God bless! Steve & Marilyn Coleman in Iowa
