My Mahoney family emigrated from Kilgarven, County Kerry, Ireland in the early 1800's.There were three sons that I know of, Patrick, Daniel (or Dennis) and John.
John married Margaret Conklin Lynch, an Irish girl born on Staten Island, and together they had 8 children. Only 4 children survived to be adults. They lived in Brooklyn NY near Hoyt and Sackett Streets in St. Agnes Parish.John and Margaret died in their 40's leaving their surviving children in the care of the oldest daughter Katherine(Kate)Mahoney.
Joseph Aloysius Mahoney was the second youngest son, and with his older brother John, he migrated to California.In San Francisco at a Nickel Dance, he met Phillis Ethel Chase.They married in 1912 and moved to Bonanza, Oregon to take up a homestead.They had 13 children, 11 of whom lived to be adults.
I'm dedicating this page to them and to finding their ancestors.
