These are some of my families of County Kerry.
Hi my name is Madeline and I am a second generation Irish America. I live in Arizona, but was born in New York City.
Michael HANIFIN was born around 1840, and married Honoria TYTER in about 1865. They lived in the Leth East Ratass area of County Kerry. I believe it is near Tralee and Castleisland. Here are some of the children of Michael and Honoria HANIFIN:
William Denis Thomas Michael Catherine (Kate)born 1870, my Great-Grandma
There mayhave be more children, but I am still researching. I have the dates of the abovepeople. Email me if interested.
John PICKET married Mary Reardan in about 1863 in the Tralee, Castleisland Co. Kerry area. I am not sure of how many children they had. The children of John & Mary Picket are:

Kerry area. Jeremiah Piggott is listed in the 1916 Petition of Knocknagoshel.
I found out the TYTER name is very rare and usual to County Kerry. Some nice people on the Kerry rootsweb were kind enough to find out some information on the TYTER name for me. They told me that TYTER is a Palantine name found in Co. Kerry. The TYTER's were French Huguenots who came from the Palantine area of Germany. They left Palantine, Germany went to Holland, London and Ireland in search of religious freedom. Later on these families went to Canada. They madesettlements in the Limerick City and Kerry areas. The TYTER's were orginally named DETLOR/TETTLER, but when they came to Ireland the name was changed to TYTER.
Some families in County Kerry that I know are relatives of mine are: COTTER, HANIFIN, REARDAN, KEANE, GRIFFIN, MAHONEY, PIGGOTT, TYTER, BROWN
There are alot more, but I am researching them now. I hope you enjoyed reading about my family. I will continue to update this family. If you see a connection e mail me, please. Thanks, Madeline
