In Reply to: Worcester Maroneys by Linda Curtin of 582

It still may be early days but I think I have found the elusive
branch of the Maroneys I have been looking.

The exciting part is -if this is the correct line in the 1930
census of Clinton Massachusetts the census taker asked an unheard of
question,I guess, where in Ireland were your parents born. This line
I am following is the Patrick Maroney line and his daughter states he was
born in Tipperary Ireland which would mean, theoretically, that his
brothers, Cornelius and Jeremiah, and his sisters, Margaret and Mary,
were also born in that county. Patrick's wife Annie was born in
Galway. She was a Gorman.

Although by 1930 both Patrick and Annie had returned to Boston,it
appears John T.-child of Annie and father unknown-had taken Patrick's
surname and had married an Anastasia Marra. And Anne who had this
information on her Census entry had married a George Francis Reardon.
Both remained in Clinton one of their children's obituary is right.
Mary by 1910 had married-presumably in the Clinton area and I still
have not found out what happened to Michael or Agnes otherwise know as Katie in earlier Census.

My question is this-does anyone know how prominent a name Maroney
is in Tipperary? Lucy Ellen Killeen is the mother's name. Is Killeen
common in Tipperary? Father's name is Michael.This is my husband's
great grandmother' s family.
