|Those Far Away Places of Our Ancestors
Tracing Our ......Donohue, Hackett, Mahan, Brett, Ryan Roots
From the Info we gained at St.Agnes in Menands,NY and the Albany Records, Timothy Donohue and Bridget Hackett , arrived in
Albany, NY from County Kerry, Ireland around 1850 - 60'ish. We assume they came separately and met each other in Albany, where
they Wed, December 8, 1861.
Bridget had brothers Michael & Daniel. At this time we are unaware of any siblings etc of Timothy.
Timothy sailed from Queenstown(now Cobh), County Cork, and the Hackett's sailed from Liverpool, coming from Kilmeany,
(Listowel Parish), County Kerry, Ireland.
In 1850-51, James Mahan and his wife, Margaret Brett and their three children Bartholomew, John and Peter (our GrandFather)
sailed to America and settled in Watertown, NY. Around 1880, Peter married Mary Ryan in Rensselaer, NY.
