Was wondering if anyone was tracing this family name back to Ireland, and if so, what county?
I found the spelling (Coonely) on my gr gr grandfather's death certificate, listing Mary Coonely as his mother, married to Edward Moyles.My gr gr grandfather (Patrick Moyles)was born in August of 1819, so I would 'presume' that both Edward Moyles and Mary Coonely Moyles might have been born somewhere in the late 1790's or so?
The spelling of the last name for this forum seemed so close to what was listed on the death certificate that I thought i would give this forum a try!
Happy hunting to all!
