Reply To: Welcome to the New Hanifin Genealogy Site and Forum

Hey folks! Just reaching out to anyone interested in the Florence, Oneida County, NY and/or the Yonkers, NY Hanifins. These were William Hanifin’s and John Hanifin, two brothers who came over from Kerry in 1834-35. The William was married to Ellen Malone in FLorence NY. He had John, William, Ellen, Catherine, Bridget (m. Connors) and Mary. John moved with his family to Yonkers NY. around 1885. His brother John married a Mary Golden in Oneida Co.,NY but moved with his family (Catherine, John, William B,and Thomas) to Palmer MA. They then had a son Morris there. Eventually John and Mary ended up in Chicopee (before I lost them!) Their children ended up all around the Springfield area- Longmeadow, Palmer etc…let me know if you’d like more info!

Best,

Nancy
