Hello Nan,
Yes this is the same Kate. Please tell me that you are also looking for this
family. I would be so excited. Kate and Annie are the sisters of my
grandfather Hugh LEONARD. I have never been able to find anything on him so
I am hoping that I may get a clue from his siblings. I understand that Annie
supposedly had a son in NY. There has been no contact between the Irish part
of the family and the American part of the family since the early 1900's. I
did find one of the siblings (Mary) 2 daughters in Chicago and if you recall
me mentioning it months ago one wasn't interested and the other hung up on
As far as I know Kate was in Chicago as her SSDI says Last Residence-
Chicago, Cook County.
Doura is a misspelling as it should be DOWRA.
The townland was Cashelbane and sometimes called Cashelbawn. It was in
Killinagh, Tullyhaw, Co. Cavan.
I look forward to hearing form you as I know that I have relative in the US
somewhere but since my grandfather returned to Ireland and there has been no
contact I am having a very difficult time finding any. I hope they aren't
like all the Chicago sisters or I may not want to find any.
