Miscellaneous Lines

Family lore was that "a large group of the CRONIN and HURLEY cousins came to America to seek their fortunes". Somehow our family forgot to mention the rest of the cousins who came along as well - we've discovered that the group surely included McCARTHYs, and probably included some of the following names as well: SULLIVAN, MURPHY, NOONAN, SHEEHAN, others???

Unfortunately, the names of all the family members are so similar, we haven't been able to identify which McCARTHY line is ours (or not, for that matter). Nor do we know whether the parent generations (b ca 1800) immigrated as well or stayed behind in IRL. We believe there was a group of CRONINs, HURLEYs and McCARTHYs sharing a house in Buffalo, Erie Co, NY in the 1850 US Census for NY, but haven't yet taken the time to check for details.


While thus far all our direct Irish lines ended up in WI, we've found collaterals in ME that could have been a part of the same group of cousins as my WI group. We also think some of them ended up here in San Joaquin County, California, headed for the Gold Rush as well.
