McSweeney Family Genealogy Forum
hmm...most interesting! I just discovered that my gggggrandfather's name was Morgan McSweeney, and his son (my ggggrandfather) was named Eugene McSweeney. Eugene was born around 1800 in Ireland. I was always told that these McSweeneys were from County Cork, but I am not absolutely certain about the county of origin. Eugene immigrated to the US sometime in the middle of the century (1850s, perhaps?) and with his wife Ellen (Kennedy) McSweeney settled in Uxbridge along with their son, my ggrandfather Paul (Paul moved to Manchester NH.)
Now I am wondering if there is a connection between the name "Morgan" and "Eugene" among generations of McSweeneys, as I have seen this pattern in a few places now. My Morgan McSweeney would have had to be born sometime in the late 18th century. I wonder if there is any relation to these Bay Area McSweeneys.
