Connaughton - Lisaquill, Tang, Co Westmeath Ireland
I am the granddaughter of ELLEN "Nellie" CONNAUGHTON MILLER ((1980-1948), who married WILLIAM T. MILLER. She was born in Ireland. She is the daughter of ANNE MURPHY(1843-1918) and JAMES CONNAUGHTON(1838-1924)both of whom never left Ireland. Most of her siblings emmigrated to Brooklyn, NY. NELLIE had three sisters; MARY(1868-1960)who married JOHN CONLON, CATHERINE "Kate" (1876-) who married JOHN HORAN and then married JOSEPH DONOUGHUE, when John died, and ANNE (1877-) who remained in Ireland and I don't believe she married. She may have been a nun. Nellie had six brothers; JOHN "Jack" (1870-)who was married....no other info., MICHAEL(1872-1912)who was a trolley car operator and died on the Titanic, Matthew (1882-1916) who enlisted in the British Army and was killed in France during WWI. He is buried in France. PATRICK(1887-)a twin,who died in an accident in NYC sometime between 1918 and 1928. He was in the army. JAMES(1887-)was PATRICK'S twin and was married. THOMAS(1888-1974)remained in Ireland and was married. I am looking for missing information, stories, photos and ancestors,as well as, descendants of ANNE MURPHY and JAMES CONNAUGHTON fromLISAQUILL, TANG, COUNTY WEATMEATH, IRELAND. I am looking to connect with relatives living here in the US and in Ireland to share stories and information, etc. Also, I am planning on visitng Ireland within the year and would like to meet any remaining relatives there. If you are related and are interested in connecting on-line or in person, please contact me.
