I am searching for information of the parents of John Francis Harrington and his birth.  I believe his mother's name was Margaret and I don't know his father's name.but believe he is connected to Ducheen, Glengarriff, West Cork, Cork.

Birth DEC 1879  Castletownbere, Cork, Ireland.  Some believe it may have actually been in 1885 but I believe the 1879 time frame is correct.

Death ABT 1942 Medford, Massachusetts, USA or Ireland.

John Francis Harrington immigrated to the US in about 1900

He married Annie Mary Blake on 20 Oct 1908Malden, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA.

This is all of the information I have on John in Ireland.  I don't know if I've given enough for you to research.

I appreciate your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.

All the best,

  • Rachel,

    I checked Free site for Glengarriff and Bantry for a John Harrington born 1875 1885.

    There are two records with a father - Daniel and a father - John in the Glengarriff Registrars District.

    Neither had a wife named Margaret

    In Bantry there is a birth of a John Harrington to Daniel Harrington and Margaret Downing for August 30th 1884.

    Daniel is described as a stone mason.

    Subscription site has a record of a marriage in Cambridge, Boston of a John Harrington to a Catherine Sullivan -  August 1908.

    Both born in Ireland.

    No record found for Malden.

    Perhaps you would get details of the marriage, which should show parents names.

  • Thank you so much for your reply McCoy.

    I haven't been able to get a copy of the actual marriage document yet.  I will continue to work on that.

    The Margaret Downing and Daniel Harrington parentage seems promising.  I will pursue that also.

    All the best,
