Moriarty Tree 2.jpg (154.51 KB)

My GG Grandfather was John Moriarty (1810-30 Sep 1882), born, I believe, in Tulla Beg, and died in Aghanagran, Kerry, Ireland.  He married Mary Dillane (1812-?).  Their son, also John (1833-1900), married Mary King (1854-1918).  They had several kids in Tulla Beg, including my Grandfather, Stephen Moriarty (1882-1957).  John, Mary, and kids emigrated to the US in 1886, settling in Stamford, CT.  Stephen married Julia Ryle, and the Ryles are from the Tralee area.  I am originally from Stamford, CT.  I  am searching for potential relatives still in Ireland through DNA.  I am on Ancestry, but have also loaded my DNA on GEDmatch, Kit GA5719625.  I did a yDNA 111 test on FamilytreeDNA, Kit B1024611.  If you are a Moriarty, King, Dillane, or Ryle (Real/Ryall/Riely) whose ancestors are from County Kerry, please let me know.  If you have a DNA test, all the better to see if we are related!   My wife and I will be visiting in July, and it would be wonderful to meet fellow family descendants!  Thanks.
