Charlene McCarthy: (
I have Margaret REIDY who married David SHANAHAN 06 Mar 1886 Killeedy, Glenquin, Limerick, Ireland. They had seven children: John 21 Mar 1887, Ben 31 May 1888, David 05 Jan 1890, Margaret 05 Mar 1893, Mary 15 May 1894, Honora 29 Feb 1896 and Ita 14 Jul 1898. I have nothing further on Margaret REIDY and/or husband David SHANAHAN who must connect to my Killeedy lot.

My great-great-grandfather, David McCARTHY (1813) son of Owen McCARTHY and Johanna “Anna” GRIFFIN was baptized with his twin brother, Denis, Mahoonagh Parish, Co Limerick.

David McCARTHY (1813) married Margaret SHANAHAN 28 Feb 1843 Killeedy Civil Parish. I have nothing further on Owen McCARTHY and/or Johanna “Anna” GRIFFIN.

I cannot, for the life of me get any further but DNA doesn’t even show MCCARTHY results but does show PAUL, LESLIE, MCKENZIE, MATHESON, and others I have no idea where, where, why, or how …

I need to be able to continue with MCCARTHY / GRIFFIN / SHANAHAN to attempt to find the missing GENETIC ancestor. Ugh … suggestions?

My twin brother, David Joseph McCarthy, has haplogroup R-A14 which I have no idea where to from here!!!!
