    I am looking for information on the McNamara and Harty Families from Co. Cork.

    Margaret McNamara (born abt. 1851) married Daniel Harty (b. 1849) from Ahadallane. She is listed in the 1901 census as having a sister living with her whos name was Hannah (McNamara) (b. abt. 1841) and living at 3 Carrigcleena Beg, Kilshanning, Cork.

    Four of the Harty children emigrated to the Philadelphia area around 1900. Ellen (Nellie, b. 1876), Hannah (Hanora, B. 1877), Anna (b. 1885), and Margaret (b.1889). I have some records that suggest the girls were born in Dripsey.
    There were siblings that stayed in Ireland….. Timothy (b. 1872), Michael (b. 1874), and Mary (Molly, b.1882) Perhaps we still have family in your area?
    I am hoping that we are related.
