  • I am seeking my Ahearn family.  ( The spelling I know changes so I can't rule out  relatives who may be  use a different form.  My family was listed variously as Ahearn or O'Hearn.And I have a friend whose name in the US is just Hearn. )   I have found a marriage registry for what appears to be my g-g-granparents' marriage- Timothy Ahearn and Mary Ann Madden in Cork. But that is my only clue.  I haven't  yet found their residence or family.   They emigrated from Ireland to Boston as a family unit, residing in Brookline, Mass ( a Boston suburb) and I am continuing to document their descendants.  Their children were  Daniel, David, Anna/Annie and Mary and possibly Michael. Annie is my g-grandmother.  

    Their  marriage record can be found at: Catholic Parish Registers, The National Library of Ireland; Dublin, Ireland; Microfilm Number: Microfilm 04801 / 03

    also at Ireland, Catholic Parish Registers, 1655-1915 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2016.

    Marriage  place:  Clountead, Ballingarry and Ballymartle, Cork, Ireland

    Parish variants: Ballingarry, Ballymartle, Belgooly, Clontead, Clonthead, Clountead, Clounted

    I don't know which to enter as the appropriate parish.

  • Thanks for troubli ng to reply.  I knew it was a long shot but  had to reach out just in case.  I forgot to note that on the Cork marriage registry they spelled his name Ahern. Oh well-we are all cousins one way or another.  Thanks again.  Joanne Close

    You're welcome. Dennis Ahern from Acton, Mass. used to have a website full of Ahern/Aherne information. Several of us Ahern/Aherne/O'Hern members met in Ireland back in 2001 for a clan reunion.  He has a lot of knowledge.  Here's one of his: which has several referral sites. This one is also one of his:  Give it a look and see if your people are mentioned.  Good luck!

  • I haven't come across a Michael O'Hern from Linton, Indiana, as yet but if I do I will contact you. I'm including a couple of wetbsites from Dennis Ahern in Massachusetts. Dennis has gathered a lot of info on Ahern, Aherne, O'Hern, and various other spellings. Check out his sites and maybe your Michael will turn up. Best wishes! Mary O
