THIS JUST IN FROM IRELAND!

Annie Elizabeth Quinlan nee Rohan.1923 in Mulcahy's Garden.   Annie was the eldest girl from a family of twelve children, her father was Edward Rohan (Roughan) and her Mum was Mary Minihane (Monahane). 

We can add:  Mary is listed in the Sacred Heart burial records:

Mary Margaret Quinlin, born, February 25, 1928...died _____. 2014....In the church records it is spelled Quinlan,,....reads that she is the daughter of Thomas Quinlan and Anna Rohan and that Mary was adopted ..Mary married Thomas Dennis O'Connor..

When recently researching my ancestors who settled and died in Marmora, I came upon your site.   I was amazed to see a copy a photograph of Allie Monahan (Minihane) submitted by Jeanette Seabourne.  Allie is a Great Great Gran Aunt of mine.  I am living in Ireland very near to where Allie would have been born.

Allie is one of six children who was taken to Canada by her Mother Mary (Alice?) Minihane or Monahan after Allie's father died.  Mary Minihane went over to her brother Mathew Moloney who was living in Canada at this time.

Another Great Gran Aunt of mine, Mrs Thomas Quinlan nee Rohan died in Marmora in 1953, she had one daughter Mary who later married an O'Connor.  Please find an old photograph of Annie Elizabeth Quinlan nee Rohan attached.

I would appreciate any advice or support you can provide and likewise if interested in the story from my end I would love to share.

Wilma Brady/Bush July 31, 2016"Mary (Quinlan) O'Connor was a delightful lady. I first met her when she visited my grandparents when I was a child & she was a young girl, adopted by the Quinlans. I thought she was so pretty & had such a delightful Irish accent which she never lost. Mary remained a very sweet lady through the years - had a nice family - her daughter Wanda attended school with my youngest - Julia. Happy memories!"
