This is Patrick McKeon, born at Kinnegrelly townlands near Collooney in County Sligo. His parents were John and Mary (Burke) McKeon who had 10 children in total (James 1873; Brigid 1875, John 1877, Maria/Mary 1879, Michael 1882, Annie 1884, Bridget 1886, Jane 1890 and Thomas 1892.) One child died sometime between the 1901 and 1911 census', likely Brigid since there was a subsequent child of the same name. Thomas was a lifelong resident at the Kinnegrelly homestead, and died 1962. He and wife Catherine had three children: Michael, John, and Mary. Michael and John's daughters still reside in the area.
Patrick emigrated to New York in 1911 on Steamship Cedric (sister ship to Titanic). He married Marie/Mary Magee of County Mayo, and they settled in Barnstable, Massachusetts. They had 5 children: Mary, Patrick, Jane, John (1922-1978), and Annie. My father is John.
