I have established by death record (finally) that Dennis Nerney died July 30, 1893 in Clarkstown (New City), Rockland Co., NY.
It doesn't sound like he is related to Chris' Dennis Nerney as, from the family info. and such I have this (as in most things) tentative tree.
James Nerney (Roscommon, IR)= Margaret Ga__?__
children: ...(1) Dennis (b. Aug. 27, 1842/43?, Strokestown, Roscommon, IR, d. see above)
(3) Robert Patrick
...-> (1) Dennis married Mary Hester (b. Feb. 12, 1845, County Clare, IR; d. March 3, 1923, Oakland, CA, USA) July 28, 1863 in Stockton on Tees, Durham Co. England, divorced her in New Tacoma, Pierce Co., Washington Territory in 1884 (while she was living in Oakland, CA). They had as children: Emma (1869), Martha (1871), James Clare (1874), John Hester (1877), Esther/Hester (1879) and Robert Emmett (1882).It is probable, but I would dearly like to find some hard evidence that he remarried Kate Flarity c. 1882 and had the children Emmett and Margaret (b. c. 1888).
If anyone has any knowledge that might match this family I would dearly like to hear from you!
