Hey folks, am doing research for some relatives on McKeon. Thanks to efforts of my mother have the following which may be of use to you. Anyone with any leads to fill in the blanks?
Area: Kilnagross, Leitrim Ireland Parents of group: Pat McKeon and Mary Murray married circa 1866
Number of children: 7
1st Child: Thomas b. 1867 emmigrated Australia (?) circa 1900 2nd Child: Maria b. 1868 emmigrated America year unknown 3rd Child: John b. 1869 emmigrated America yearn unknown 4th Child: Eliza Ann b. 1871 emmigrated America 1893 5th Child: Bernard b. 1872 emmigrated Australia (?) circa 1900 6th Child: Margaret b. 1874 emmigrated America year unknown 7th Child: Catherine b. 1877 remained Ireland (Our branch of family - married Thomas Ward 1908)
Our question is anyone know details of Thomas or Bernard McKeon? We see a Bernard McKeon date of death 1916 in Braidwood with the right parents name, but that's a very tenuous link without any more info. Any info on the family would be useful.
