Tom Andreaci writes that Kinnitty is the birthplace of his maternal grandfather, thomas joseph dooley.
Anyone got any information for Tom Andreaci who is researching his family connections in Kinnitty? His grandfather was the son of Daniel Dooley and Anna Delaney dooley.
He had seven sisters: Elizabeth, Katherine, Margaret, Susan, Christine, Mary and Ann.
Daniel worked in the general store and Thomas worked on a farm in kinnitty.
Thomas left ireland in 1911 ( at age 23) for New York and only returned about 1969 or 1970 fro a very short visit.
He married Helen O'Grady in 1914, who was born and raised in Kilkelly, County mayo and also came to America and settled.
Here is the family in the 1911 census: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/King_s_Co_/Kinnitty/Lismony/554063/
