Researching Our Family Tree

Request from England on the Donohue/Donohoe Family Name

Hugh Donohoe

There are many Donohue Families in the area but, from the information supplied by Abbey Heritage, it would appear that the below information from the headstone in Abbey cemetery is relevant.

The inscription on the Headstone is quite obliterated but reads as follows:

In loving memory of Thomas Donohue Coolfin died 14th Feb 1964 aged 82 years
His wife Bridget died 13th Dec 1970 aged 93 years
Their son James died 26th Oct 1969 aged 57 years
Their son John died 12th July 1988 aged 76 years
Their son Patrick died 19 Sept 1995 aged 87 years
Their son Tommy died 6th Jan 2001 aged 86 years
His wife Annie died 25th Jan 2007 aged 85 years RIP
Erected by his wife and family

The below image is a photo of my Grandparents’ gravestone – Michael Thomas Donohoe and Bridget Donohoe (nee Collins).

Michael was born in Coolfin 1907 and died in 1972 (age 65)

Bridget was born in Brookville in 1915 and died in 1998 (aged 83)

They are buried in Mill Hill, London, where they re-located after getting married in the Old Church, Clonlee Duniry in 1942

The ceremony was witnessed by Laurence Collins and Margaret Madden.

If possible, it would be great to add this information to the Abbey Heritage website.

Any memories or contributions from any members of the Donohoe/Donohue clan would be most welcome and can be sent to [email protected] and they will be passed on to the family.

  • i have been trying for many years to find my maternal grandads roots. His name was Thomas Quinn, His father was patrick. Thomas was working in N East England in the early 1930’s where he met my nana, they had a daughter Ivy born in 1932. i have managed to trace some family through DNA to a cecilia Quinn who emegrated with her sister Julia to Boston USA. i believe the quinn’s were closely connected to the Fahy and Cunnane families. i would so love any info which may help me to find out more TIA
