My father - John K. Kealy was born in Dublin on July 29, 1909. He was the oldest child of Patrick Francis Kealy of Clonneygowan, County Offaly and Lena holohan of Bennettsbridge, County Kilkenny. My grandfather, Patrick Kealy was killed in an industrial accident in April 1915 at the Guinness Factgory - St. James Gate in Dublin. He was buried in Glasnevin Cemetary in the uniform of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. My grandmother returned to her home in Bennettsbridge, County Kilkenny and over the years there was very little contact with the Kealy family. My father emigrated from Ireland to Oakland, California in Nov. 1929.
