My grandmother (ELLEN McENTEE 1874-1942)emigrated from the vicinity of Kingscourt, County Cavan in 1890 -- to reside initially with her mother's sister in Wheeling, WV.My grandmother's father, ANDREW McENTEE (1825-1901) had a farm at townland of Cornamaugh -- Kingscourt was the post office as you may know.Andrew died in Ireland.
Andrew McEntee's wife had the SAME surname Anne McEntee(maiden name 1828-1887) who died in the parish of Enniskeen, County Cavan. I believe she had brothers: Cormac (who married Mary Murphy in 1861 in Cavan); Thomas (who married Anne Murphy, also 1861 in Cavan), a brother, James, married twice, resided and died in County Cavan, older sister, Mary McEntee (1827-1897) who married in Steubenville, OH about 1851 to a Thomas Muldoon (1827-1888) and resided in WHEELING, WV. I believe both THIS Cormac McEntee and his brother, Thomas, emgrated to Wheeling, WV, also.
My Anne (1828-1887) married (1847) Andrew McEntee (same surname 1825-1901), a farmer in townland of Cornamaugh, parish of Enniskeen, Cavan, barony of Clankee, County Cavan. I have a fair amount of information on later generations of my McEntee. If interested let me know. DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON THE EARLIER McENTEE in that area of County Cavan?Thanks
