Donoghue family in Barnsley

Anne Polding ( Posted on 27-Oct-2000

My Donoghue family tree branch begins with my gg-grandmother Ellen Donoghue who was born in Barnsley circa 1855. She married John Feeley. Her parents were called Michael and Ellen and came from Tipperary. I would be grateful for any information on this Donoghue family.

I have know clue about Donoghue, but I have the same surname as you - how cool is that.

Research on James Donahoo

E. Dale Donahoo ( Posted on 6-Nov-2000

James Donahoo was a revoluntary soldier born in Maryland 11/02/1765 and is buried in the Swellsville OH cemetery 05/05/1851. He had brothers or cousins by the name of William and Robert. He had a military pension in Philadelphia and in Delaware. He came to Belmont Co. Ohio in approx 1821 and resided there until his death. His wife's maiden name was Hester Justice. I am looking for Jame's father's name and place of residence.

Hello I am most interested in your ancestor. As you can see by my name, I am a DONAHOO from Maryland. My ancestor was John Donahoo, the lighthouse builder, dates aree about 1786 to 1858. One possibility is Gilbert Donahoo, born in Maryland (Harford County) in 1738. This might be his father. / Lauren

Donohue migration 1863

Paul Panarisi ( Posted on 16-Nov-2000

Hello all,
I am looking for clues as to the origin of my Donaghues/Donohues. Thomas Donohue was born in Ireland (whereabouts unknown). He had a son, James born in England in 1852. They came to America in 1863, settling in Trenton, NJ.
James Married Wilhelmina Randow in 1879.
Not much to go on, but desperation pushes the search forward.
Best Regards to all,

Footnote to my earlier post.
I received the 1870 NJ census yeserday and found a nest of Donoghues living in Trenton, NJ.
In one house there are about 9 of them, including three Charles Donoghues. Some must be nephews or such. Someone must surely belong to these fine people. They are from England, Ireland and Scotland and all living under one roof.
I am still seeking Thomas Donoghue b. 1820 in Ireland, married Susan (maiden name unknown) and arriving in America abt. 1863.
Regards to all,
Paul Panarisi

Paul, I am looking for information on the Donohue family - I do not know the name of the father, however, I did find a branch listed in the 1860 Pennsylvania Census for Philadelphia that lists siblings, etc. for my great grandmother, her name was Sarah Donohue Kingston born approx 1838.
On the 1860 census for family 381 were listed: William Donohue, age 29, white, male, paper stainer, born PA Tressilla Donohue, age 23, white, female Catherine Donohue, age 3, (I'm assuming problably child of couple above) Charles Donohue, age 23, paper stainer, born PA Sarah Donohue, age 60, white female (I'm thinking mother of family) Louis Kingston, age 24 or 29 hard to decipher, white, male, machinist, (my great great grandfather) born PA a/k/a Lucius H Kingston Sarah Kingston, age 22, white female, born PA (wife of Louis Kingston) Josephine Kingston, age 10/12, child of Louis and Sarah Donohue Kingston I would assume. Emma Donohue, age 16, white female, tailoress born PA Lydia Donohue, age 13, white, female, attended some school John Lacy (or Sacy, presumably Lacy capital letter tough to distingish) age 28, carpenter, born England.
This is the first 'clue' I've had to carry my search for information forward. Prior to this I've just had the names of Louis Kingston and Sarah Donohue who became his wife.
I do know that my grandfather, who was the son of Lucius/Louis Kingston and Sarah Donohue Kingston - his name was Andrew Jackson Kingston and he was born in Pennsylvania (presumably Philadelphia) March 11, 1870 was married in Camden, NJ on May 23, 1890.
It is difficult to find information as there are so many Donohue families that it is hard to pinpoint exactly who belongs to who. I am very exited by the find of the 1860 census information and hope it will provide more details.
Do you have the names of the Donohue's listed in the Trenton, NJ 1870 Census or where could I find it?

My father, also called Thomas Donohue, was born in Manchester, England on 7th July 1922. His father was John Donohue, born in Ireland, whereabouts unknown. Hope this helps a little.

Donoghue of County Cork

Dan Donahue ( Posted on 26-Nov-2000

Just visited your site for the first time. Looked through all the messages and found no connection. Here is my family history that I know.
Patrick Donoghue born in Ireland abt 1830-40 and was married to a Mary Fitzgerald. They had two or three children.
Michael Donoghue, born Dec. 29, 1861 in Glounthane Parish,Courtstown Townland, Little Island, County Cork, Ireland. Immigrated to USA before 1889 to Lynn, MA and married Anna Curtin in Lynn, MA. She came to the USA from Ireland and maybe from the same area as there were Curtins in the church records. They had six children Ellen, Mary, William, Bridget, Henry and Jeremiah. All born in Lynn, MA.
Hannah (Anna)Donoghue, Born 1858 or 1859 (Two were listed in parish records.) in same parish in Ireland. Stayed in Ireland and married Patrick Sheehan. They had 8 children, Timothy, Patrick, Denis, Michael, Mary, John, Cornelius, Lawrence and William.
I just found this information out during a recent trip to Ireland. It was exciting to find this information in writing by reviewing the parish records and the 1901 census. I found Patrick Donoghue living with his daughter with her husband and 8 children in a two room cottage.
I hope to find more information about Patrick, his parents and other relatives.

Besides my father (Edward Francis) who was the last one born, there are James born in 1907 in either Washington DC or Philadelphia Pa and died in 1941 in Oregon. He's buried in a single grave in Middletown NJ. but supposed to have had a son.
William born in 1909 and died in 1943. He was married and had at least one child, believed to be a son. His wife was last known to be in Washington DC. in the 1940's or early 50's.
John, born 1910 and died some time in the late 1960's or early 70's. There are at least 3 children. One daughter Eleanor (Cranford?) lives in NJ somewhere along the shore. The son and another child are in the same area but I don't know names.
David's daughter I know and you can contact her thru me.
Mary (Polly) married George Lithco and had 3 children Sheila, Eileen and George,Jr. Last known to be on Staten Island in 1980.

Kevin; I have no direct information in respect of Hugh Donaghy, He may have been a relation of my Great Grandfather William, who was born about 1813 in the parish of Clonfeacle( Clonfeacle combines Moy in Co Tyrone & Blackwatertown Co Armagh), however 2 of my Great Grandfathers sons, Jack(John) and Patrick (Pat)did make contact with Patrick Mc Kearney, Grange, near Moy, Co Tyrone by way of letter, enclosing a photograph taken in Dore Studios San Francisco 1905. The letter was written by Marie Donohue. As follows;
'This is Pat and Jack, Myself and the children is well, I will send a long letter soon, Marie Donohue 3086-25 Street San Francisco'
We know that the 2 boys were certainly Donaghy's, (written on the back of the photo were the words 'Jack Donaghy 21 Sparta Street, Sanfrancisco') and presumably Marie was married to one of them. It has been said many times by My father and Granduncle Ned that the Donaghys referred to that went to the states did call themselves Donohue. I do know that the Donahues that currently reside in Moy originate fron Emyvale Co Monaghan and are unrelated to the Donaghys.

and Colm Donaghy ( Replied on 30-Nov-2002

Claire; I'm not sure if we are related although I guess it is a possibility, I suooose it depends how far back you go. Strangely enough I was born in Coalisland, in a little house in Brackaville. I have carried out limited research into the history of the name Donaghy and come up with conflicting views. Some (in fact most) observers say that we derive from the O'Donaghues in Munster, however I prefer the version that we derive from an offspring off the O'Neill clan. The last option I think is more realistic and is backed up by Arthur Daly of the O'Neill historical. Apparantly thr Donaghy in West Tyrone derive from the Maguires. If you are interested in tracing your ancestry you could try Willy O'Kane at Heritage World in Donaghmore or Armagh Ancestry both have web-sites If you can't get them I'll send them on to you. They have access to a multitude of records, however from my experience I would advise that you get as much information from living family members (make sure and write the information down as its amazing how much can be forgotten)
Good Luck
