John Whalen and Mary Sullivan (married approx 1830?) had 3 children: James H Whalen (born approx (1851?), Nora Whalen born 1859 (married name Mullahy from Ohio), and Michael Whalen (no information on him). I have a lot of information for the descendants of James H Whalen and Nora Whalen (married name Mullahy).
Looking for information about James H Whalen (born approx 1851). James H Whalen married Mary Ann Dempsey on 5/16/1877 in Hamilton County, TN and had 10 children. They moved from TN through IN (brief time) and settled in the KC area.
Mary Ann Dempsey was born in Washington DC and died in Kansas City on May 10, 1896. Not sure where/when James H Whalen died but believe it was around 1895-1897 in the Kansas City area.
Many of the children of James H Whalen and Mary Ann Dempsey were born in the Armourdale/Kansas City area. I have a lot of information about their descendants.
