INFORMATION on Keys; I see in your notes from October 2011 a reference to some of my ancestors.  “Dan Keys Ahalahanna born 1835 to Dan Keys and Deb. Hanrahan.” .  I have the baptismal records for the children born to Daniel Keyes and Deborah (Hanrahan) Keyes from the parish in Moyvane.  These records include the marriage of their oldest daughter, Mary Keyes, to Richard Collins in 1861.  Both were from Ahalahana.  Deborah (Hanrahan) Keyes was a daughter of Denis Hanrahan and Dorothy (Clifford) Hanrahan.  

The descendant chart for Daniel Keyes and Deborah Hanrahan is attached.  My great grandfather was Thomas Keyes (born 1844 to Daniel Keyes and Deborah Hanrahan).  Of course, I have the details of his marriage, children and other descendants from my own family records in the United States.  He immigrated in 1871.  But, I don’t have information about what happened to the rest of the Keyes children (except for Mary [Keyes] Collins) and some of their descendants, and that information is only from the Irish Genealogy church records.

So, I am writing to ask if, perhaps, you have anything more on the family than what appeared in your notes.  If so, I would appreciate knowing about it. Thanks, Patrick McDonnell.
