I am doing research on a McKeon line. James McKeon came to New York and hailed from Dublin Ireland. Accoriding to my sources he was married to a Mary Nolan in 1855 in Dublin and came to the US close after.
What I am in need of help with is finding the family James came from in Dublin. any information that would help me in finding a direction.
There are stories that this mckeon family was wealthy as they were big in horse racing. not sure if that true. It is possible there was a name change as he came to US but cant confirm.
