I am interested in your HENNESSEY and MCEVOY lines. I have a Johanna HENNESSEY (b. 10 Nov 1840 d. 6 Mar 1922) (maternal gr grandaunt). However, she married a Maurice DOOLEY. She was from Newfoundland and I believe that Maurice was from Ireland (not sure, though).

I also have MCEVOYs. My MCEVOYs came from Dundlak, County Louth, Ireland. My gr grandmother, Alice MCEVOY (b. 16 Jan 1858 d. 6 Feb 1932) married Thomas KERR in Dundalk and emigrated to Chicago. I am not sure if Alice had any relations here in Chicago. Any connection?
