Oral family history indicates that Patrick and Maria had a daughter Kathleen, who became a nun and died in South Australia. There is no record of a death for a Kathleen Kiernan, but women often take on another name when they become nuns.

Patrick Felix Kiernan was a prosperous businessman in Dublin in the early 19th century.
He had a woollen drapery shop at 4&5 Francis Street, Dublin, from 1806-1833.
Patrick was married to Maria Teresa Dunne. They had several children that we know of, all baptised at St. Nicholas (without), Dublin. They were Maria Anna in 1822, Maria Eleanor in 1823, John Joseph in 1826, Catherine in 1828 and Felix Jacob in 1831.
Patrick contributed to mainstream Catholic causes, such as the O'Connell tribute, and used patriotism in his adverts.
