The History of 8 Families

i have just begun working on my grandfather's family history. His name was John Frederick Carney he was born in [Kiltamagh] Kiltimaguh, County Mayo, Connaught, Ireland and came to America c 1911.

His parents were Anthony Carney, --<1916, and Bridget McHale. Anthony's first wife Maria Clark died after their son Thomas Anthony was born. Anthony Carney and Bridget McHale lived in Lisduff, Kiltmaugh until 1910 at which point they moved to Ardboley, Civil parish of Balla, Co. Mayo.

Anthony Carney, --<1916, and Maria Clark's children are:

  1. Martin Carney, 1876--,
  2. Mary Carney, 1878--,
  3. James Carney, 1879--, remained in Co Mayo, Ireland.
  4. Patrick Carney, 1881--, remained in Co Mayo, Ireland.
  5. Michael Crney, 1883--,
  6. Thomas Anthony Carney, 1884--, came to the America, aprox 1911.
  7. Anna Maria Carney, 1886--,
  8. Margaret Carney, 1889--,

Anthony Carney and Bridget Mchale's children are:

  1. John Fredrick Carney, 6-12-1892--, born in Kiltimagh, Co Mayo, Ireland. Livedin Coventry England before comming to the states in 1915.
  2. Richard Carney, 1894--, came to the America in aprox 1916.
  3. Mary Ellen Carney, 1896--, remained in Co Mayo, Ireland
  4. Margaret Carney, 1898--, came to America
  5. Anthony Carney, 1900--, who I believed owned a taproom in England.
Bridget Carney, nee Mchale was living in Ardboley, Balla, Co Mayo in 1911.

My Grandfather, Thomas Anthony Carney lived in Coventry England for a time before coming to the states. I am only guessing that Anthony's taproom was in Coventry.
