My gr.gr.grandpa was Cornelius Hennessey from Dunbar Pa. Born in
Limerick Ireland he was married to Mary Elizabeth Bodkin my
gr.grandma was Julia Hennessey.
Cornelius also had a brother Patrick they are buried here in Dunbar
Pa. other than that the only thing I know is the names of Cornelius
and Mary Elizabeth's children I don't know any other siblings or
who Cornelius and Patrick's mother and father was if we could share
info. let me know.
