Hi - I have tangled DNA links to this family - hoping to my mysterious Michel Kelly.
William McGauran m. Eleanor Beirne about 1805.
Son Luke McGauran m. Catherine Kelly in her home parish of Aughrim, Roscommon in 1853. They lived in Kilmore near Beirnes in 1858, later in Foxwood.
Their son Luke McGuaran lived with Catherine's sister Bridget in Elia, Roscommon in 1901.
My Michael Kelly went to Australia bef 1840. Patrick McGauran went to Brooklyn NY in 1886. Very keen for anyone who has any Kelly information in particular. Thanks.
