Hi Nancy,

It is possible your Terence was a brother to my great-grandfather. I think my ggf James was born about 1859 (d. 1911), and they had a sister Rose born in 1846 (d. 1918). The generation is right, and Terence McEntee is not so common a name.

Terence is a recurring name in the tree, where James had a brother Terence and their father was Terence as well (married to Mary Dunne).

I saw two Terence's in Griffiths in 1850 (for their father). One near Carrickmacross and the other (spelled McIntee) in Cavan in Kildrumsherdan. Looking at the parish records for Carrickmacross does not look like a match. Drung/Kildrumsherdan is possible where I see the correct names Terence and Mary with a son James on Feb 6, 1859. Unfortunately her maiden name is not recorded.

That matches our oral history that we were from Co. Cavan, but had been living in Ballybay when we emigrated.

Does that spark anything for you?
