  • Patricia, Thank You for your attention. Unfortunately this is not the same Malachy/Malachi as mine. My great grandfather was born 30 July 1841 and died 22 Feburary 1895. He imigrated to New Jersey in (1866 arriving 4 June 1866 at Castle Garden, New York)

    His parents were verbally reported to me as;

    Andrew Higgins (aka. Edward Malachi) (b.25 December 1812 -- d.20 December 1867 / Ballinvoher-Kilnamanagh-French Park-Boyle-Roscommon-Connaught)

    Cecilia Kelly (b.16 July 1818/ Roscommon)

    (marriage: 18 July 1839)

    note: Andrew was told to me as being a Surveyor and (John b.1839 is recorded in 1901 as being a surveyor also John and Ellen are recorded as having two children at home in 1901)

    (Delia b.1875)

    (John b.1876)

    Their Children are recorded as:



    (Julia Cecilia    b.23 June 1840)

    Malachi           b.30 July 1841

    (John E.           b.15 August 1842)

    (father: Godfrey Malachi O'Higgins b.6 January 1784 / Kilnamanagh-Ballinvoher-French Park-Roscommon)

    (mother: Eliza E. Hamilton b.10 June 1785)


    Malachi married Hariet Whitford and they lived in Passaic County New Jersey their children, my grand father is George A.

    John      b.1874

    Thomas b.1876
