  • After visiting the Borrisokane / Terryglass area in the Summer of 2016, I returned to Canada with the knowledge that there are clans or groups of Hogans identified by various nicknames, this being due to the large number of Hogan Family Members in the area. Yet, I have been completely unsuccessful in discovering the list of nicknames, or where that could lead me. I have no direct Hogan Family Members here to draw Family knowledge from any longer.

    In addition, my hunt was not successful in finding out anything about my Hogan Family Ancestors before Luke Hogan (Borrisokane) b. late 1799 - Stone Mason. I did discover an old quarry where he likely worked but that was the extent of it.

    On the bright side, I did meet with Helen Fox and learned a gread deal about the Bollard (Ballard) Family of Terryglass, my GG Grandmother's Family and back to her Grandfather, John Bollard as well as property belonging to the Family until their emigration in 1832.

    So, I am still hoping to find more about my GG Grandfather's side of the Family. Any thoughts / ideas are most welcome and appreciated.

  • Hi Michelle, Although no connection, I understand your frustration about trying to identify your forebears. Reading items like yours has helped me immensely in just trying to understand how all the irish counties, townsland, etc fit together.  Hopefully I will eventually identify my Irish ancestor, GG grandfather born Ireland and joined the English 2/14th and travelled to New Zealand to fight the wars, but settled in Tasmania Australia.
