You might be on to something. I cannot identify any connection with the SPECIFIC people you have described. However, the surnames Fitzsimmons, Lynch and Boyle are associated with the McEntee in the Wheeling, WV area AS WELL AS in the parish records of ENNISKEEN in the barony of Clankee in County Cavan in the 1840s & 1850s. That may not be of any significance -- because your BOSTON PILOT article deals with a different parish. The surnames MAY permeate the entire area. AFTER arrival in America, most of my McEntee soon settled in the Wheeling, WV area. They stayed with their aunt MARY (McEntee) Muldoon. My grandmother's aunt Mary McEntee (1827-1897) married in 1851 to Thomas Muldoon (1827-1888) in Steubenville, OH. They moved to Wheeling about 1855. Thomas Muldoon owned his own tombstone business located in the rear of 1920 Market Street, Wheeling. His wife ran a grocery in the front of THAT same location. The Muldoons resided upstairs. The Muldoons were an initial residence for several immigrant children of my great grandfather, Andrew McEntee (1825-1901) or his wife Anne (1825-1887). MY Mary McEntee does not seem to be old enough to be your MARY. They may be cousins. I think you are on to something, so stay in touch
