Re: LOFTUS LEE O'FLAHERTY FLAHERTY of Lettermullan and/or Dinish Galway Ireland
Trying to make the connection with the Loftus and Lee family to the Donahue/Donohue's from Maureen Pier.

John Donohue married to Mary Mullen, daughter of Margaret Lee and John Mullen.

John Donohue came to the U.S. and lived in Anaconda, Montana, Chicago, Illinois and Boston, Massachusetts. In Boston, John, his wife Elizabeth Dunlap/Delap and their sons, Robert and Thomas lived near Martin Loftus and Redmond or Reddy Loftus. I have several pictures from Elizabeth with Reddy and her boys with Reddy. Martin and Reddy are sons of Penelope Lee and Thomas Conneelly.

Now Robert Donohue died in Boston in 1927 and is buried at New Calvary Cemetery. Buried in the plot next to Robert is Martin Loftus. My grandmother remembers that they got a phone call in 1971 asking for permission to have the spot for burial for his cousin who just died.

Now, I have Conneelly relatives that I've connected to on the Rosmuc side of my family but not the Donahue/Donohue side. The Lee side I am trying to connect to Margaret Lee but have had no luck finding parents. I have Ancestry DNA my name is thekid186 and Gedmatch as A078763. My Mother's Gedmatch is A839666. Now my Mother is a Donahue (Tom, John, John Donohue) her mother's side is a Coyne from Rosmuc and Coyne from Cornamona.

Would love help in nailing this elusive link down!!
