sagirl: i remember your dad from way back. i think there were a lot of familys related but we were never sure how. the kellys,mc canns,kings, fitzsimmons, mcauley (my lot) glenholmes i,m sure iv,e forgotten some you can ask your dad. we were not so much a big family circle more a small tribe.!

Hi jonjoe

Yes I know Dad talks about the (tribe) and you are right there was quite a mix with all family and although he has told me how it came about I am still not sure as a verrry long story as we know!!
He has told me all the surnames and you have mentioned them all if I remember correctly!!

He would be delighted to hear that I was in touch with anyone from the (tribe) even though he still goes (home) as often as he can to see his sisters

Thanks for getting in touch

the bible is a book of hate.its filled with stories  of rape murder incest and genocides.if you were foolish enough to believe and follow every word in the bible you would either end up in jail or the mad house.

hI Billy, I think you are referring to the old testament when you say these things. Jesus changed all that. Try reading the new testament, and I feel your opinion may change.

Well Susan, how are you, hope all is well.  Cant say how many years its been from I last spoke to you.  Everybody is doing great.  Any chance of you coming home for a visit.  Was just telling our Patricia today that you had got in touch through this forum.  Are you on facebook, if yes I am under Cullen and Patricia is under Braniff.

Last seen your mum at Maureens funeral, must say her, mary and teasie doing great, hope I am good at their age.

Must tell our Thomas u have been in touch.

jonjoe - as far as I can remember, the glenholmes and kings were cousins of the  kellys.  My aunt Becky Kelly's married name was mccann and aunt maggie kelly's married name was fitzsimmons. the armours were also cousins of the kellys.
