Tully of Meath Co Ireland
Posted by: linda Grennan (ID *****9803) Date: April 27, 2002 at 18:38:59

My research stems from Bridget Tully who was born in Kilskeer,Meath Co,Ireland in 1842. I do not know her father's
name. I've been told that her mother's first name was Ann or Anna (not maiden name known) and that her mother was also born in Kilskeer. Her mother would later marry Dennis Donahue (various spellings) but do not know if this was in Ireland or in the US. After imigrating to the US, they lived in Louisa Co Iowa. Currently, I do not know what ship they came over to the US or what port they might have entered in.

Bridget married Jacob Rinearson in Louisa Co Iowa in 1863. They would have several children. By the 1880's, they had moved to Brown Co KS where they died and are buried.

I have no documention other than marraige record and information given to me by other researcheres. I had orginally been told her name was Bridget Donahue but did find a will that stated that Dennis Donahue was her stepfather.

Any help on this line would be appreciated. We are hoping to go to Ireland in 2003 and would like to find more information.
