I'm not sure if there is a connection, but I've been trying to trace our family tree, and there are alot of names I recognize in your messages.
I know our family came from Ireland. My fathers name was Oscar Thomas Mahorney, borne in 1922 in Cythiana, Ky. I'm not sure if thats the right spelling on the town. His parents were Thomas Henry Mahorney, birthplace Harrison Co., Ky,1860 and Stella Mae Martin-Mahorney, same birthplace, Aug.23, 1906.
My great aunt, Blanche Mahorney ,Oct.26,1896,was married to Clarrence Mahorney, Jun. 29,1891.
I hope that maybe there is a connection that we can figure out. Thanks.
