County: Leitrim
Civil Parish:
Related Surname Info: This is for Sligo, not Leitrim or Roscommon so I hope that is okay.

My great-grandmother, Ellen Foley married William Scanlon and lived in Sligo. She was born either 1863 or 1867; she died in 1909. (Her husband, Willie Scanlon remarried after her death, to Katherine Flanagan but they had no offspring.)

Ellen Foley’s siblings include:

--Theresa Foley who married Michael Conway; emigrated to USA (4 children-Alice, James, Eleanor and Margaret)

--Kate Foley, who married a Hannon and also emigrated to USA (5 children I believe—Norah, George and three unknown)

--Margaret (Peg) Foley; who married Milton _____? and also emigrated to USA; had at least one child, Charles, born circa 1920

--Norah (or Nora; nicknamed Gyp); married either Edward Boylan/Dillon; emigrated to USA; daughter Mary who married a Cosgrove

--Tom; had son, Tom possibly currently living in Sligo

--Mark who stayed on the family farm in Drumcondra, called “Oatfield;” married ____ Kelly (nickname \"Baby\"); had son, Tom

--Michael; married Isobel Dowd; emigrated to USA

--John (had store in Ballintogher)

--Mathilda (Tilly)

--Charles (named after his father); married Catherine (Kate) McSharry; 6 children: Ann who emigrated to Washington, DC, Kathleen (Kate), Charles, Jim who emigrated to NY (Jim and Charles might be twins), Jack and Stephen, who emigrated to Sydney, Australia.


--youngest child unidentified

My great-grandmother Ellen Foley\'s parents were Charles and Ann Foley (Ann’s maiden name may also have been Foley).

Ellen Foley Scanlon’s children, all deceased, were:
1) Tom Scanlon (who married an Annie);
2) John Scanlon, former solicitor general of Ireland; died in 1982; married Chris, possibly from England;
3) Terry Scanlon (Nora Teresa)--my grandmother--born June 15, 1905; married John/Sean Gallagher in 1927; settled in Dublin; and
4) Florence Scanlon (Florrie) who married Christopher O’Malley and emigrated to NY.
