Norry Tuohy was born in 1872 in Gortacullin, Kilseily, County Clare.
Parents were John Tuohy and Mary Carthy
One of six children, John b.1864, Hugh b. 1866, Thomas b.1868, Margaret b 1870, Michael b.1871 and Honora/Nora/Norry b 1872) in Gortacullin, Kilseily, Limerick, Co Clare. My hypothesis is that Thomas and Hugh were the first to immigrate to New York, US about 1886 then Margaret and Norry arrived in NY about 1888 and John with his mother Mary arrived in 1889. On arrival in the US many in the family were known as Toohey. Sometime in the mid-late 1880's John Sr must have died in Ireland and Mary, his wife immigrated to Granville, NY. Unsure when Michael immigrated. They originally settled in Hartford, Washington Co, NY with the exception of Nora/Norry who settled in Albany, NY. Nora married Stephen Feenan of Albany, NY. The Feenan's remained in Albany. After a few years, the Tuohy/Toohey family moved to Granville, Washington Co, NY - this was about the time Margaret married John Dolan White of Granville, NY. In the early 1890's Hugh and Thomas moved to Waltham, MA Then sometime in the 1920's, Margaret Toohey & John White and their family of 9 children moved to Waltham, MA. John Jr. stayed in Granville, NY.
