Did any of they people marry? Have Children? Are any relatives still living in Kerry, Ireland? Any info would be great! We are hoping to travel to Ireland in about 5 years...... Would love to meet relatives!

Perhaps contact the local history librarian at the Kerry county library...
If he can't help, maybe he can point you in the right direction.
Hi Sharon, the 1911 Census says that Ellen & James had 9 children of whom only 5 were living in 1911.
Sadly Julia also died in 1913
At Ellen's death in 1943, Hanna Coffey was present. It is likely that this is her daughter who appears to be single still.
Ellen was buried in Clogherbrien on the outskirts of Tralee.
There is a Hannah Coffey buried in Clogherbrien in 1973 who is possibly your Hannah.
Your Daniel was also buried in Clogherbrien in 1969.
I cannot find Patrick or Jack/John in Tralee records but it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that either one or both married or died in Killarney, Listowel or even Dingle Registration Districts. You could also search stevemorse.org to see if there is a record of them going to America.
A short Irish newspapers subscription might yield results for one or both of them, if they remained in Ireland.
I'm sorry I cannot be of more help to you but hopefully someone who knows your family will see your message.

Thank you, Marine! It would be so awesome if I can find someone from this tree who is still living in Ireland today.
