My great grandafther was John B. Maroney (b. March 1843) and he was born about the same time the son of Bridget and Patrick Maroney was born. I am not sure if they weremy John's parents or not. I have three places of birth for him -- TN (Memphis, specifically), AR and MS but have not been able to proove any of them. Bridget and Patrick's son (according to the census) was born in NY, which I figure was when they came from Ireland. My John Maroney enlisted in the Confederate army in Pontotoc Co., MS in 1862. He was wounded at Sharpsburg, MD and released. I don't have any idea where is is from that time until he shows up in Prairie Co., AR in `878 when he married my great grandmother. I've not found him on the 1870 census yet.
Anyway, I am working on Patrick and Bridget hoping to find out if they were his parents. At one time I had copies of Patrick's estate papers, but think they got thrown away by accident.
Oh--I have Queen's in my family, who some say is the same as Quinn. My Queen's are on my dad's side of the family, and Maroney is on my mom's.
