Re: Tangney: Castleisland, Kerry to Manchester.N.H.
We might have a connection.My grandfather, Daniel Maurice Tagney, was born in Boston in 1873.His godmother was Margaret Tagney.His parents were Maurice Tangney and Flora Toone: a witness to the wedding of Maurice and Flora was Margaret Tangney.My great-grandfather, Maurice, was born near Killarney, and had a sister Margaret and a brother Patrick.However, they are about a generation older than the ancestors you mentioned. My great great grandfather was a shoemaker in Ireland but was a marble polisher in Boston.
I know there were some Tangneys in the Brockton or Rockland, MA, area as early as the civil war, and also some in Lynn MA.
There is a good chance that our lines meet sometime around 1900.Were any of the men named Maurice?
