I have some information about your family. My husband's mother is a Mulkern. Maybe you can fill in some info for me as well. Here goes: Michael Mulkern married Mary Nee in Galway. They had 3 children John 1832(Galway)-10/21/1900 (Portland, ME) Patrick 1844 (Galway) - 6/2/02 (Portland) Michael 1841 (Galway) - 9/17/12 (Portland)
John 1832 is the only one whose children I know about. He married Margaret Mary Nee. They had 5 children. Coleman 1864 - 1/24/07 Married Bridget Keeley (daughter of James Keeley and Margaret Gorham) 3 known children- Joseph Patrick 1895-1946 Lived with John and Barbara Feeney in Portland Maine after parents' death. Played on Portland HS "Bulldogs" football team with John Feeney Ford. Possibly went to work at a Keeley Brewery in Boston after HS graduation. Married Agnes Dunegan. John - Chief of Police, Portland, Maine 1948-1951 Margaret (or maybe Eulalia) John J. abt 1870 - 12/14/57 Married Bridget A.Connelly bd 3/1872. Had 2 children Coleman 1898 Margaret 1899 Bridget married Conroy Catherine Elizabeth (your info is the same as mine except I don't have the children) Mary married Corcoran
So your grandmother is my husband's gg aunt - the sister of his great grandfather, Coleman. I have been trying to figure out how his family was related to the Feeneys (John Ford the film director's family)because my family is related to the Feeneys and my greatgrandmother also lived with them, possibly at the same time as Joseph Patrick. I will forward your message on to 2 other Mulkern relatives that I know.
