Hi Dan,

No Nicholas in the family that I know of, just lots of John, Daniel, Denis &
Michaels. Do you know which McCarthy sept you are? Mine is supposed to be
Bawnie. They were from Bantry Co Cork. Supposedly they came over the
mountains from Co Kerry via Tousist. I suppose that is where they met up
with the Harringtons as that family is spread all over the Beara Peninsula.

By the way, you wouldn't happen to have a Bridget Hogan married to Thomas
Bourke around 1830 would you? Possibly in Kingstown Co Dublin.

I have some McCarthys in Chicago.
I have a Mary Ann McCarthy b. 3/28/1860 Chicago,
daughter of Nicholas McCarthy and Catherine
Montgomery, both born Ireland. Catherine born abt.
Mary Ann wed Hugh "Chick" Curran, b. 1856 Chicago.
Hugh was 10th Ward leader, head of city refuge, and
Deputy US Marshall of Chicago.
I have LOTS more if this connects to yours.
