I will admit I have no knowledge of the Neenan clan movements to the US. My side of the family moved South to Cork city from their land around (please forgive the phonetic spelling here) Doneraile, in the 1850's. From there most ended up either destitute or in the employ of the UK, prior to 1922, generally in the Armed Forces. In my Grandfather's case the Royal Leinster Regiment during the First World War.
In the case of my branch of the family all surviving members have, since 1946, emigrated around the world using the UK as a first base.
I find the fact that most people with he surname of Neenan (at least where the internet is concerned) originate latterly from the US. This could give some credence to our particular family history 'belief' that the move to Cork was occaisioned because the family group at that time was a widow with 6 children, unable to make the move to the Americas.
I am aware that my branch of the family has the usual historic notes available, should anyone have an interest in the history of 'those left behind' I will be more than happy to pass them on.
