Seeking to contact searchers interested in the Kelliher Families of Callinafercy, Count Kerry, Ireland. The first family of interest is that of Thomas Kelliher and Margaret O'Brien who would have married around 1865 and whose children included John (1866) Margaret/Mary (1867) Dennis (1869) Timothy (1870) James (1872) Hanorah (1874) Ellen (1876) Thomas (1880) and possibly others. It seems that James and brother Timothy immigrated to the Golfields of Western Australia in 1896. Timothy stayed and James went on to the goldfields of Alaska where he was joined by two or three of his brothers. I am related by marriage to the descendants of Timothy here in Western Australia, and am in touch with the Alaskan Kellihers.
The other Callinafercy family I am interested in is that of Patrick Kelliher and J (possibly Johanna) Heffernan who had children Dennis (abt 1880) Thomas (?) Timothy (?) James (?) and others. I am in touch with the descendants of Thomas here in Western Australia.
Would love to make contact with interested parties.
