My grandfather , Patrick Michael Kearney, in 1914, from county Louth, migrated to USA with 2 brothers, had 3 brothers who migrated to Canada, and another 3 brothers, who went to Australia. I know of a Thomas that lives at the homestead in Ireland still. I would like to find the Kearneys in Canada and Australia. At one time, I saw a picture of a pugilist , a Kearney, in a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE. HE looked like an uncle of mine.

My ancestors is James who married Elizabeth Herbert in Timmins, Ontario, and then they moved to Batavia NY. James's father was Patrick who married Mary Duffy in November of 1823 in Ulster. Patrick was born in 1798, which I found on Ancestry but I can't find much more. Does this sound familiar to anybody?
