|I started this research as a hobby to find some information for my grandchildren, it has now become a passion of mine to research all ancestors of this family.|
William Callaghan b. January 1835 in Ireland married Johanna Bourke on 2/2/1962 in Cappamore, County Limerick, Ireland.
They had 4 sons born in Cappamore : Patrick b. 1862, Richard b. 1864, Daniel b. 1866 and my great grandfather Dennis b. 1868.
Johanna died in Cappamore 7/30/1869.
William remarried to Mary Kennedy about 1871. They had 2 additional children in Ireland and then 5 more in the Terryville CT area. They lived on Town Hill Road there.
William was a shopkeeper in Cappamore and then worked as a Iron Polisher at Andrew Terry Company (now OZ Gedney) in Terryville CT. and at the Eagle Lock Company
I have also included Family Trees for my fiancee' Ron Raymond. Ron's family were among the first settlers in the United States and has many historical notes listed here,
