My grandmother was Catherine Mary (Kitty) Hanafin (born 5/04/1907), her father Denis Hanafin (born 1881- 1882) married Margaret Twomey in 1902-1903.
At the time of the 1911 Census Denis and Margaret lived at 8 Spa Road, Tralee with their children Jeremiah (born 1905),Denis (born 1910)and Catherine. Before her marriage to Denis I understand that Margaret spent some time in America before returning to Ireland. Following Margarets death Denis later married Susan(?)Devane and went on to have a family of at least two girls (Annie and a sister who went to Australia) and a boy Thomas who was a Railwayman like his father.
At the time of her marriage to John Mason (25/2/1930) Catherine’s residence is given as Kilduff, Ballymacelligot, the occupation of her father Denis is given as Railwayman.
Jeremiah (Jerry) married Margaret Barry and had a family of three boys (Eddie, Dermott and Denis) and three girls (Helen, Kathlene and Margaret),their family home was at Tursillagh.
If any of this sounds familiar then I would much appreciate your help with this branch of the Hanafin family tree. Any info on the related Twomey side would also be of interest.
Hope your still with us.
