John O'Donnell m Elizabeth Carney(when, where, dob for both) They had 4 sons(not 3 as i previously thought) Peter(born before 1844) Patrick(1844) James(1845 my great grandfather)and John F(Dec 1854)
I have several questions regarding them I know my grandmother and her sibblings (James and Susan Doherty children) were all born in Co Donegal in/around Carndonagh Glenmakee area. Patrick 1867, John Nov 21 1868, Neil 1871, MaryAnn(grandmother)July 28 1873, Maggie 1875, Denis 1878, and Philip 1880. All were baptised in Sacred Heart Church in Carndonagh I think. So my question is where was James and his brothers born? I ask because at some point before 1881John and Elizabeth were in Cork. Now I'm wondering if James was born there and moved to Co Donegal when he married Susan Doherty? or ifJohn F was born in Co Donegal and with some of family moved to Co Cork before . I do know that John F married Bridget Doherty(feb 1861)IN sACRED Heart Church in Carndonagh Jan 1881, they immigrated to MA(Stoneham/and later Boston's North End) April 1881. Bridgets parents were Neil Doherty and Mary Coats (1838-1878)They came to Boston sometime before 1878 as they died seperately in Boston that year.
Is there any connection between Susan Doherty dob 1845, and Neil Doherty 1838. The years aren't all that far apar(7) so I thought perhaps they could be sibblings? Just don't know Susan's father's name may have been John or James, not sure.
