FLAHERTY of Mayo

My research indicates that my great grandmother, Bridget FLAHERTY (1845-1891) was born in County Mayo and probably from Crossmolina Parish. Her parents were Michael FLAHERTY and Mary O'MALLEY. She immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio, USA and married a James MURPHY there. She had sisters named Mary (1845-1919) and Margaret (Maggie) (1852-1918) who also immgrated to Cleveland and died there. Mary FLAHERTY married the bother of my James, Martin MURPHY, again in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. There was also a brother named John FLAHERTY, born about 1850, who may have died in the American Civil War. 

To date no record has been found confirming Crossmolina as their parish of origin and Ballinrobe remains as yet another possibility. I will also post there.

Anyone finding a Michael & Mary (nee O'Malley) connection, anywhere in County Mayo, Please contact me.

Hi,   I have the LDS vesion

Hi,

 

I have the LDS vesion of the Crossmolina register and could find no Flagherty-O'Malley matches. Unfortunately the register for those early years is in bad shape, and the 40's is particulary bad in that there is a five year span where they are simply missing.

Perhaps they are in Ballinrobe.
