To all following this post, I have had a major break. Julie who responded above joined Nancy Reeb's Mullaney email list and we've made a connection. My Uncle sent me a fairly extensive booklet of our family history, compiled by a Vivian Mullaney Talbot covering 1835-1979. It confirms what Tom Mulcahy said above. This is what I have and there's lots more so post if you have questions:
Patrick and Nancy (Quinlan) Mullaney arrived in the states in 1835 with some of their children. They came from Cather Town, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, but it does not say where they came into the states from Ireland. They settled first in McHenry Co Illinois, then moved to Citron Valley, Draford Co, Wisconsin. They had 9 children, James, Mary (Ryan), John, Dennis, Andrew, Mullaney, Patrick, William, Michael, and Nancy (Coakley). Some dates of birth on the children range from 1817-1825. I have information on most of these children including spouses and children. My line follows their son Andrew (b. 1824) who married Mary Clancy. They had 7 children, Patrick Francis, John, Cornelius, Katherine (Doyle), James, Dennis, Andrew. I don't have much info on the rest of the children of Andrew and Mary, but I have very extensive info on their oldest son Patrick Francis.
Patrick Francis (b. 1854 in Prairie Du. Chein, Wisc - d. 1932 in Souix Falls, SD) maried Mary Ann Finnegan (b. ?-d.1925 in Miller, SD) after following her family's wagon train to Severdrup township, S. Dakota, in Souix Falls, S. Dakota, April 5, 1883. They had 10 children, James D., Francis A., Patrick D., Bernard S., Mary Ellen (Burkey), Mathew J., Thomas, Leo I., Elmer J., Walter C....I have extensive on these familys also. I have not yet compiled this info into an online family tree, but will aim to do so soon.
