Carrying on the Donohue Family Name
It is probable, but unknown, if Timothy Donohue had any Brothers or Sisters.
So our trace of the Legacy of the Donohue Family name begins at his birth
in what is believed to be Kilmeany or Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland, in 1834'ish.
( Probably was O’Donoghue; and town sounds like Kil ‘main’ ey where he or Bridget was born)
