|I am researching the KEATING family from Barnaboy, Daingean, County Offaly, Ireland. Matthew Keating, born around 1780,first appears listing his children in the Daingean baptismal records beginning in 1823.He is married to Margaret Handiboe who died January 11, 1864 at the age of 75 years and is buried in the Kilclonfert Cemetary, County Offaly, Ireland.Although not listed in the baptismal records in Daingean, Peter Keating was born on June 29, 1818 and arrived in Southington, CT around 1850.He was married to Rosannah Hughes (born in 1836 in Croghan, County Offaly -- John Hughes and Ann Campbell) on March 28, 1856 in Meriden, CT.Peter's siblings are Michael, Edward, Matthew, Mary Ann, Margaret and Thomas.It appears that only Peter came to America.|
Any additional information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
