It is unknown if Timothy Donahue came to the USA. His wife Bridget Meara b. 1812 in Ireland came to the USA. She lived in Waterbury, CT and died in 1879-1880. She had three children.
*Timothy Donahue b. btwn 1844-1849 in Ireland. m. Catherine Lynch in Waterbury, CT in 1873 d. 4/28/1895
**Stephen Donahue b. 1833? in Ireland m. Mary A. Kelly about 1870 d. 1/13/1920 in Waterbury or Middletown, CT
*** MaryAnn Donahue b. about 1846 in Ireland. Alive in 1870.
My major interest is to determine the name of the county and town where Timothy Donahue"Sr". and his wife Bridget Meara Donahue came from in Ireland. I have not found one record in the US that lists place of birth as anything other than Ireland. There is no oral history because my mothers father died when she was very young.
* Timothy Donahue married Catherine Lynch in Waterbury, CT
They had seven children. Bridget, Elizabeth, Frederick, Joseph, William, MaryJane, James
**Stephen Donahue married Mary A. Kelly. They had 3 daughters Mrs. John Gleason, Mrs. John Bushnell, and Mrs. Frank Bergin and 15 Grandchildren
Other descendant names include Brick, Murphy, Goulden, Lyons and others.
Please contact me if you have any information regarding the origins of this family. I am interested in joining but have already spent much time & money on research and would like to know if you have any clues that might be helpful. Thanks, Eileen
I feel like I am trying to find a needle in a haystack!
