Notes for CATHERINE KELLEHER:

Bev and Claire Cronin visited the Kelleher homestead in Ireland in 1958. It was a farm in Aharas, a townland within 1/2 mile of Bawntemple just north of Ballingeary village. The Irish historical society gave us that information after being told Aharas did not exist. It was a rustic farmhouse, no screens on windows and the chickens ran in and out of house. They cooked over the open hearth and served us Irish whiskey, tea with all the trimmings. There were 3 brothers and families, Cornelius, Seamus, and John. I would have to guess they are the descendents of Jeremiah who remained in Ireland.
