Generation No. 2
The Children of Mr. & Mrs. Conway:
JAMES (JAMESIE)2 CONWAY (Seamus MacConnmhaigh) (MR.1), our great-grandfather, was born in Letterkeen, a townland located next to the townland of Shramore, in the civil parish of Burrishoole, County Mayo, Ireland. Quite a few Conways were from these two townlands., Ireland. He married BRIDGET (Brid) MCMENAMON in County Mayo, Ireland. She was born in Ireland, and died in Newport, Co. Mayo, Ireland Their children were: Catherine, our grandmother, Walter, James, Patrick, Mary (Moira) and another daughter. Our great-grandmother, Bridget, kept a small shop in the front of her house on Georges Street. Jamsie went to Canada with his brothers, Michael and, Patrick. He was a rebel and had to flee to Canada. Our great-grandmother, Bridget would not go and stayed in Newport with their children. The brothers settled in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada, and became farmers. Vincent Ketterick, son of our Uncle Michael Ketterick, was informed by Sean Conway, a relative from Shramore, that JAMES (JAMSIE) came back to Newport and died in Ireland. I think his middle name was probably Patrick because my father said his mother told him he was named Patrick after both of his grandfathers.
MICHAEL2 CONWAY (Micheal McConnmhaigh) (MR.1) was born in Letterkeen, Burrisholle, Co. Mayo, Ireland, and died in Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada. MICHAEL was the brother of our great-grandfather, and was married in Ireland. His wife and daughter went with him to Canada. His, daughter, Mary, used to write to my father. I have two of her letters. One of her letters is dated January 24, 1914. She said it was 35 degrees below zero. Her address at that time was 937 Railway Street, Swift Current. She was working in an office in the town. She married a man whose first name was Bernie and they moved to New York City. I believe my father visited her there in 1939. Michael moved to Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada, and died there.
WALTER CONWAY (Ualtar McConnmhaigh), b.Letterkeen, Burrishoole, Co. Mayo, Ireland, was the brother of our great-grandfather. Perhaps Walter was the father of our grandmother's cousins, Mary and Kate Conway.
PATRICK CONWAY, b. Letterkeen, Burrishoole. Co. Mayo, Ireland; d. Abt. 1937, GreenValley California. Patrick (Padraig MacConnmhaigh) the brother of our great-grandfather, served in the Connaught Rangers during the South African Boer War. Later, he was stationed in Castlebar. He deserted from the army and fled to Canada with his brothers, James (Jamsie) and Michael. He never married. Later he moved to Green Valley, California. In California, he lived in a boarding house, run by a couple from Ireland. He wrote to my father in 1935, and asked him to come out to see him, but my father had just gotten married and did not have the money to go out to California. He died a few years later before my father had a chance to go and visit him.
My father told me about a Peter Conway who was driving a horse and wagon. The wagon for filled with guns and ammunition for the rebels. While crossing a bridge, the wagon slid off and into the water went the wagon-load of supplies.
In the 1901 Census of Ireland, there was a Anthony Conway, age 55, living with his family at 11 George's Street. Vincent Ketterick thought he could have been a cousin of our grandfather. He was a shopkeeper. There was a Patrick and Bridget, both ages 50, living at 25 Georges Street, Newport. Patrick's occupation was listed as Victualler/grocer. In Shramore, a Peter Conway, and a John Conway are listed as farmers and heads of families.

He was born in Half Mile, Kilmeena, County Mayo, Ireland, and died in Newport, Co. Mayo, Ireland. Our grandmother grew up in the house on Georges Street. Our grandparents had six children and continued to live in the house on Georges Street. In 1950, when we visited her, her health was beginning to fail. Later, as her old house needed so many repairs, she moved to Rose Cottage, Quay Road, Newport, and her old home on Georges Street was torn down. After I was married, she sent me a letter and enclosed some shamrocks. I still have those dried shamrocks. She died in May or June of 1961.

(Notes Per Sister Maura McGuire)
JAMES3 CONWAY (Seamus MacConnmhaigh), (JAMES (JAMESIE)2, MR.1) was born in County Mayo, Ireland, and died in Limerick City, Ireland. He married BRIDGET GINLEY in County Mayo, Ireland. She was born in Bunahowna, Mulranney, County Mayo, Ireland, and died in Ireland. JAMES was the brother of our grandmother. Two children were born in County Mayo before they moved to Limerick City. Their children were: Michael, Billy, Tommy, Marion, Josephine, Eileen, Christina and Paddy. James and his family were coach builders. His son, Billy, has one PTO of the traps which was made in the 1940's. They were very musical and had a band. They often visited Dingle in the late 40's and 50's. All the children except Marion lived in Limerick as adults. (Per Sister Maura McGuire)
MARY (MOIRA)3 CONWAY(MacConnmhaigh) (JAMES (JAMESIE)2, MR.1) was born in Co. Mayo, Ireland, and died February 04, 1943 in Newport, Co. Mayo, Ireland. She married MR. MCMANAMON. He was born in Ireland, and died in Australia. CONWAY (Moira MacConnmhaigh), Her nickname was Moira Mack. They had five children: Mary Kate (Mae), Emily, Celia, Thomas, and the youngest daughter, Sheila(?). They moved to England. Mr. McManamon became a policeman in London, where he deserted Moira. Her brother, Patrick Conway, searched London looking for him. He found out that Mr. McManamon had married an English woman, most likely without ever telling her he was already married. They moved to Australia. There was no way of finding out where in Australia he had moved, but Moira was stranded with no money. She came back to Newport and lived in the house next to our grandparents on Georges St. She died February 4, 1943, the same year as our grandfather.
PATRICK CONWAY (Padraig MacConnmhaigh) b. Co, Mayo, Ireland. He was brother of our grandmother, Catherine Conway Ketterick. When his sister, Mary (Moira Mack) was deserted by her husband, Patrick went to London, to search for him. My father said he stayed in England.
DAUGHTER CONWAY, b. Co. Mayo, Ireland; d. Manchester, England; m. CAPTAIN MC NALLY; b. England; d. France. MRS. MC NALLY ( Mrs. Mac an Fhailghigh), our Grandmother's sister, was a nurse. She took care of the injured soldiers in World War I. She married a Captain McNally, from England. Captain McNally was in the Royal Engineers, and died in the fighting in France during World War I. She had no children. She was gassed during the war. After the war she lived in Manchester, England. She offered to bring my father over to England when he was in his teens and send him to school but my father did not want to go back to school. He admitted that he was sorry he didn't take the opportunity to go to school in England.
JAMES KITTRICK/KETTERICK (Seamus Mac Shitric),. Our grandfather was born circa 1872, the son of Patrick and Bridget Kittrick, and grew up on his father's farm in the the Townland of Half Mile, in the Civil Parish of Kilmeena, County Mayo, Ireland. The farm was located on the road between Westport and Newport, about four miles outside of Newport. He married Catherine Conway, of Georges Street, Newport, County Mayo, Ireland on May 9, 1899. They had six children: Mary Bridget (Molly), Patrick James (James), Catherine (Kathleen), Michael Walter (Mikey), John Joseph, and Celena. He and his two brothers moved into Newport. After he married, the priest sent the marriage certificate to Dublin to be registered. The clerk copied the name Kittrick as Ketterick. Our grandfather was told that Ketterick was now his legal name and if he wanted the name changed back to Kittrick, he would have to hire a lawyer to do that for him. Since he had no money for a lawyer he left the name as Ketterick. He continued to use the name Kittrick, but he was told for any legal documents he would have to use Ketterick. My father told me that his fraternal grandfather told him that his grandfather had told him that at one time many generations ago their ancestors had come to Ireland from Scotland. Our grandfather served an apprenticeship to become a baker. Eventually he opened his own bakery. The first bakery was located behind the home on Georges Street. The old house and bakery were later torn down and government offices were built at that location. I saw the second bakery in 1950 when new baking shelves were installed and was very impressed. Our uncle, John, ran the bakery at that time. He had a van and a helper who delivered the freshly baked even to some nearby islands. Our cousin, Vincent Ketterick, tells me the bakery has been torn down, and now there is a gas station at that location. Our grandfather was also the postmaster for the town of Newport. Once a year, our grandfather would travel to Wishaw, Lanark. Scotland (near Glasgow) to work in the steel-mills there. I have a letter from our grandmother to my father, after our grandfather died. He died on a Monday night, at 9:00 p.m., September 6, 1943 of heart failure. This letter said that Uncle Mikie was in England driving a truck, and Uncle John Joe had two children and was expecting a third child. In the 1901 Census of Ireland, James Kettrick, age 28, his wife, Kate, age 20, and their daughter, Mary, age 1, are shown living at 23 Georges Street, Newport. James's occupation is listed as baker.
Our grandmother had two cousins in Chicago, Mary and Kate Conway. They sent a passage ticket back to Newport. They expected that Emily McManamon would use the ticket to come out to them in Chicago. Emily decided she did not want to go. She decided to go to England instead. At that time, my father, James, had come home to Newport after the Connaught Rangers were disbanded. Our grandmother was afraid some of the town bullies would beat up my father for being in the English Army. England had just given Ireland its freedom and feeling against England was very strong. So she persuaded my father that it would be best if he used the ticket to go to Chicago. Kate and Mary never married. They looked quite a bit like our grandmother. I remember going with my father to visit them. They later bought a large apartment building, a very nice looking building at 936 Belle Plaine Avenue, Chicago. This area is now being 'gentrified' and the apartments are being sold as condos. The sisters did very well for themselves here . They had a niece who lived with them, Nora Conway.
My father told me when he was young the most thriving business in town was the Lumber Mill, Carey Ltd. Old Martin Carey left the mill to his son-in-law. Workers at the mill continually robbed the mill and it finally went out of business. My father thought it was shocking that these people could put the mill out of business. He remembered that Mr. Callaghan, a carpenter who lived two houses down from their family, worked there. My father told me about a man in town considered to be a rag picker. When World War I started, he would pay the young boys to bring him all the old clothes and rags they could find. He sold them, especially the silk rags, to the British, who used them to make parachutes. He made a lot of money and was the first person in Newport to own a car. With the advent of motor cars, the railway to Newport was closed down, and businesses in Newport were badly affected.
JANIE MCGRAIL was not a relative, she was a neighbor of our grandmother, who often came to visit. She was very nice, very cheerful. Jean McGreal, Mary A. McGreal : I don't know if they were relatives. Mary was the godmother of Uncle Mikie, and Jean was Celena's godmother.

She married Peter who was from Bleachyard, Burrisholle, Co. Mayo. They had six children and lived on a farm in Bleachyard. While expecting twins. Aunt Molly developed toxemia and she and her twins died on July 10, 1937. How sad there was no adequate treatment at that time for toxemia. In 1950, my mother, my brother, Jimmy, and myself were driving into Newport on the road that overlooks the town. In the distance, we saw a funeral procession. We were very shocked to find out the procession for Aunt Molly's son, Jim Kilroy. He was engaged and one Saturday he was in town to visit his fiancee. He had to cross a bridge to get home. It was a stormy night, and the wind apparently swept him off the bridge. His body was not found right away, because it was washed into a gully in the river. Aunt Molly's husband, Peter would come over to our Grandmother's house and visit with us.. As I remember Peter, he was very good-natured and a great talker with a natural interest in politics. Peter loved to tease me and my brother, Jimmy, about the politics of the 'Yanks'. Of course I felt that I had to defend the U.S., although at 13, I did not know too much of what was actually going in American politics. Everyone but me knew he was just leading me on and greatly enjoyed it. Peter died February 3, 1973 at Bleachyard, at the age of 86.

Notes of Kathleen Ketterick Morrone, from stories my father, James Ketterick, , told me me and information from my cousins, Sister Maura McGuire, Sister Evelyn McGuire, Vincent Ketterick, Kathleen Kilroy Thomas, her son, Roy Thomas, and Peter Kilroy,
