The earliest of the Carty name we can confirm, the three brothers legend being earlier still.
Mary Carty is buried in Aughnacliffe RC under a stone erected by Thomas, no record of him being there. He may be buried in another cemetry, or even may have been C of I, and could be accross the road in St Thomas’ but search of online inscriptions of that cemetry does not show anything.
Was subject of the turnip incident in famine times, and the reason why the Haero was such a rebel, according to dad.
Had one daughter, Margaret, as well as John, who we know from the Sean Mac Eoin picture as “The Man with the Beard”
Her family we had a complete blank on, however they are showing up on a number of family trees.
There appears to have been a lot of marriages between Carty and Mullaniffe families, and the Thomas’s seem to have been fond of girls called Mary Ann and variants thereof. The Catholic insistance of Latin in records confuses matters as its often written as Miriam.
There is our Thomas and Mary Ann
There is Thomas and Mary Ann with family in Australis who appear to have emigrated there and maybe returned – Kirkland family tree on MyHeritage has info.
Theres a Mary ann born in 1807/9 and one born 1825, the latter a daughter of a Eugene Mullaniffe and Mary Corran.
All probably cousins or cousins of sorts!!!
