Coyne & Walsh families - Clifden areas
Hi; is anyone researching the COYNE and/or WALSH families from around Clifden; any dates from about 1790-1860. I have parents Martin COYNE and Mary WALSH probably born around 1800; don't know when they married. Two sons I know - Thomas born c1820 and John Joseph born c1834. Thomas may have married someone called Biddy prior to 1850.
Family website and database at: - there's a link called Ancestors that goes to the database.

Re: Coyne & Walsh families - Clifden areas
I know this was posted a long time ago, but I too have a Galway Coyne/Walsh- I am researching my 2 and 3X grandparents- Mary Walsh had a mother named Hannah or Honora Coyne- who married a man by the name of Michael Walsh.(Some of my research has pointed to the possibility that this may have been a Stephen Walsh instead of a Michael but our family Bible had Michael written down as the father of Mary)

Honora and Michael likely had many children but definitely Mary Walsh. Mary Walsh may or may not have been married to Charles Davitt- but they definitely had a child together (Irene Davitt b.1898) In the 1920 census Irene is living with a woman by the name of Barbara McMannamus or McMannus in Chicago, IL Barbara's mother is listed as Honora/Hanna Walsh and is also living with Barbara in 1920. Irene Davitt (Mary Walsh's dtr ), is listed as the Niece of Barbara, meaning that Barbara was very likely Mary Walsh's sister.
Irene was raised by her grandmother (Hannah/Honora Walsh) and it was believed that this was because Mary died soon after Irene was born.
Although the family is supposedly from Galway, there is also a possible connection to England and it is said that Mary Walsh had 2 sons who were hung by the English.

I would be curious to know if anyone out there has any information or connection with any of this information and perhaps we can collaborate
