Catherine Morahan b. circa 1891-3 in Co. Roscommon, Ireland (Boyle Barony, Tumna Parish, Gortleck Townland). Siblings who emigrated to New York City early 1900's: AnneMaria, Maggie(Margaret)Jane, Pat, Thomas. Siblings who stayed in Ireland: James, John Joseph, Eveline (?Bridget).
Father: possibly James, died by the time of the 1901 census, but youngest child was 2 at that time, so he most likely died between 1898-1901. He was a farmer.
Mother: Fanny, widowed, 43 years of age at time of 1901 census (b. 1858?) Given name may have been Frances.
Catherine (listed as Kate in the census, may have Frances as a middle name) emigrated to NYC about 1912. m Roy Burton in 1921. They had 1 child, Patricia Mary in 1928.
Patricia (my mother) remembers spending summer vacations between 1935-41 with her Aunt Annie at Broad Channel (on Long Island, NY). Last name FARRY would be cousins.
Looking for related Morahan's in both Ireland and America.
