Trying to trace my great great grandfather Daniel Mann

Postby Siobhan7 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:49 pm

Hi. Wondering if anyone has advice. I have found my Great Grandmother Ellen Mann who went from Ireland to New Bedford Mass. from Ireland and married my great grandfather Christopher Collins. I know her parents were Daniel and Ellen Mann but cannot find them online. What am I doing wrong?

Noticed Ellen Jr.'s maiden name is spelled differently on her childrens' birth records.
In Massachusetts, it's spelled "Mahone, Mahon, and Mann." In Ireland, it's spelled "Mahon."

According to the 1901 & 1911 Dublin, Ireland censuses (where Christopher was born), the Collins were Roman Catholic. I searched the Catholic records on Ancestry for Ellen, daughter of Daniel & Ellen M----, between 1865-1870.

Thought it was interesting, in 1880, there was a Bridget & Joannah Mc Mann in hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts (where the Collins were married in 1889). I'm pretty sure they were the daughters of Charles Mc Mahon and his wife, Mary Mc donnell of Killaloe, Co. Clare, Ireland.

Just for fun, I searched Killaloe for any Ellen Mc Mahons. Sure enough, there was one baptised in 1873 (of course, one can be baptised at any age) to Daniel Mc Mahon and his wife, Bridget Egan, who may be the same Bridget Correy who married Daniel in 1865 in Killaloe.

Thought the following family tree was also interesting. Don't know if they are related but wonder if Bridget died young and Daniel remarried Ellen Flannigan? He appears to have been from Killaloe.
