MORAN, Owen...and Catherine (Kate) DUFFY...Researching my Greats...Owen MORAN, born abt 1844...came to US abt 1870, settled in Jersey City, NJ. Married Kate DUFFY, d/o John DUFFY & Bridget , born abt 1844-54..not sure if married in Ire or US. I have found an Owen & Kate MORAN in Cloonieron & Kilkelly , Mayo, but not sure if this is my family. Owen & Kate MORAN had 13 kids, 7 surviving as per 1900 US Census. Patrick, b Mar 1872...Mary, b 1874, married Daniel GUINAN...John, b 1876, married Elizabeth GARRY, ...Edward, b Oct 1877 died at age 5...James, b Jan 1879, married Bridget FITZPATRICK...Bridget, b Sep 1882, married John KELLY (my grandparents)...Thomas, b Mar 1885, no more info...Edward, b Oct 1887, died at 8 mos..Joseph, b Nov 1889, married Jesse WEEKS...all the above born in Jersey City, NJ. Kate DUFFY MORAN died Dec 26, 1903 & is buried in Holy Name Cem, JC, NJ. The last I have of Owen MORAN is returning from a trip to Ireland in 1911 thru Ellis Island. Manifest said he was "senile'. Three days later he went to Court of Common Pleas stating his Naturalization papers "were burnt by fire". He is not buried in family plot, altho there was room. If anyone can connect to this family, please get in touch with me at either:joyzee_goil@yahoo.com or jmatt413@comcast.net. Thank you.
