Hey all - I'm looking for info on the Malone family of Cootehill. I have a 3rd great-grandfather, Patrick Malone of Pennsylvania (b. 1836 in Augeslan, Cootehill) who was the son of a Daniel Francis Malone (b. 1802) and Kitty McCue (b. 1796) of Cavan. McCue has also been spelled as McHugh, Magary, McGrough, and McKeough. They also had at least two other children (Thomas in 1843 and Daniel in 1846, both born in the same place).
I'm finding records that line up suggesting they may originally have come from Milltown, Westmeath about 80km southwest. Records from Griffiths in 1857 suggest there are a number of Malones who were tenants on land held by Richard Coote. For those better educated in the time and place, does a move like this sound likely? It would have happened between 1805 and 1830 or so. Was it common to move counties then? Does anyone else have these folks or other Malones of the area in their lineage?
