Hello, I live in Australia - my cousin has done a lot of work on my mother's side of the family (Coady) & came up with the following about my father's side:
My father's family was from Picton, NSW
My father was Robert Moraghan - born 1892 died 1975
He had brothers = Reginald,Sydney & Thomas Charles/ sister Doris
My grandfather was Thomas Moraghan (1862-1933) married to Alice Twohig
Thomas's father was Charles Moraghan(ca`1818-1863) married to Mary Annne Carter

My generation (siblings are) John(1931-), Joan(1929-1982), Peter&Pauline(1934-), Dawn (1936-),Doreen(1936-37)
Do not know when the Moraghan side of the family came to Australia. My mother's side (Michael Coady 1839-1905)came in the 1840's Their name in Ireland was spelt Cody (Patrick Cody 1820-1857)

Incidentally, I lived in the US 34 years & my brother has lived in North Dakota longer). So there, is quite a Moraghan tribe in the Dakotas from our Australian side of the family. I have a son, Ben living in Fargo,ND.

Hope this helps - Kind regards - Brian Moraghan
