Denis McSweeney, Color Sargeant, Kerry Militia, married Margaret Hallinan. Had five children: Edward, Denis, Richard, Margaret & Ellen Mary. All born between 1861 and 1869 in Tralee or Ballymullen, County Kerry. Richard Eugene born 1863 emigrated to New York City, date unknown. Married Honora Connolly in September 1894. They had five children: Denis, 1895; John 1896; Richard 1898; Patrick 1900; Mary Agnes, 1902. In 1902 Honora McSweeney was hospitalized, and Richard disappeared. Sisters of Charity in 1902 thought he may have died of smallpox. Children were all placed out by various charitable organizations, including NY Foundling Home. Mary Agnes was sent to foster care in Chicago. Denis and John somehow ended up in Michigan. Am looking for any information on Richard McSweeney after 1902; also any possible descendants of Denis McSweeney born 1895 in NYC. Denis married Edith Ohus in Wayne County, MI and lived there in 1920. He then joined the Navy. Had at least two children: Thomas and Joe. Also would like to know who were the parents of Denis McSweeney of Tralee, born probably about 1830-1840, and his wife Margaret Hallinan of Tralee.
