McNaboe and Doyle

My direct maternal 3rd great-grandmother, Catherine Doyle, and my 3rd great-grandfather, Peter McNaboe (sometimes recorded due to translation as Victory) were both from Longford. Catherine Doyle McNaboe born 1816 and died on 11th May 1891, aged 75 years. Peter McNaboe born 1804 and died at Drumury, 22nd December 1889, Aged 85 years. They both were from Drumury, but buried in Moyne Cemetery, Dromard RC Parish, County Longford.

Peter and Catherine McNaboe had 10 children, including my second-great grandmother, Margaret McNaboe Devlin (daughter of Peter and Catherine) was born sometime between 1857-1860 in Moyne, County Longford, Ireland. She immigrated to the United States in 1878. I believe that the only child who stayed in Longford were their sons Peter b1841/1843 and Patrick b1847.

I've tried very hard to trace my Longford roots, but this is as far as I've been able to go thus far. I'm waiting on my mtDNA results, which I'm hoping might help.

It looks like my maternal great grandfather, Hugh Coyle, is from Longford. He is my mom's paternal grandfather. Looking forward to any DNA connections, both myself and my mom have tested and awaiting results. Hopefully my uncle will test as well. It's been difficult to research my mother's father's line because we were confused by his father's second marriage not matching the mother listed on my grandfather's wedding certificate. Still trying to work out where their biological mother is from. She is clearly Irish or Irish parents, but not sure from where. Hugh Coyle's parents are Hugh Coyle from Longford and Bridget Riley or Reilly. He was remarried to Annie Finley, who is also from Longford, and she raised his children from his first marriage to Bridget. Clearly something happened, but all those who knew are all passed on. My grandfather Hugh died when my mother was very young, so I only really know my Irish relatives through my grandmother's Tuam and Galway relatives, who know nothing about the Coyle side. My grandfather has been a mystery we are only just starting to unravel. My mom has more photos now after my other uncle passed on, but we don't know who all the people are.

Annie Finley and Hugh Coyle were married in 1907, after all his children were born in New York City. We know this is correct because my mother knew the two brothers of my grandfather, and the children are an exact match on the census, and the marriage certificate listed Hugh as widowed. Hugh Coyle was born in 1868 to John Coyle and Mary McEnerny, in Springtown, Granard, Longford, Ireland.

Tiernan and Arthur

Patrick Tiernan and Catherine Arthur married in Longford Templemichael in 1827. They emigrated to Albany NY USA. He died during the US Civil War, and his widow filed for a pension. She had to provide a marriage certificate, which is why I know when and where they were married. Their first children were born in Longford, and their later children were born in Albany NY.

I do not know the parents of Patrick Tiernan or Catherine Arthur.
