Looking for more precise information and additional family members of my great grandfather, PATRICK AHERN, B. 1829, CO. LIMERICK, AT GARRYGLASS FARM, BETWEEN ATHEA AND ABBEYFEALE. HIS PARENTS WERE JOHN AHERN AND MARY BRODERICK OF THE JOHN AHERN FAMILY WHO WERE AT THE GARRYGLASS HOMESTEAD IN 1770. The earlier family homestead was at LAURIGA. Both homesteads are still being farmed today by Ahern descendents. Patrick's brothers were John, Mick and Maurice (emmigrated to KY)and perhaps other siblings. Patrick emmigrated to Mass. Vt. and NH in the 1840's; he went to the Gold Rush in CA around 1849; returned to join his brother Maurice in a livery stable business in Lexington, KY. then bought the Ahern family farm in Charlestown, N.H., where his son Thomas Patrick Ahern, raised a large family. I visited Garryglass and Lauriga in Oct. 1998: they are being farmed by Maurice Ahern and Anthony Sheehy respectively, who have more detailed information about recent family members there and the members whoemmigrated to Australia. Helen Ahern in Abbeyfeale is in touch with most of the Ahern families there. I believe that Patrick's brother John's descendents, John and Bill, were in NY city in the 1930's. Would like to get in touch with any of families of Patrick's brothers, especially those of Maurice Ahern who was in Lexington, Ky.
