Descendants of Daniel FLANNERY and Maggie Hardigan.

Daniel Flannery was born and lived in Ireland in the early 1800's. Family stories say he came from Tipperary. The family name was originally O'Flannery. Through DNA testing this line belongs to the Munster Flannerys.

The best DNA match is with the Flannerys of the townland of Ballyguy in the parish of Abington in the County of Limerick. Abington straddles the county border and is located in both counties Limerick and Tipperary.

This family history site is of Daniel Flannery and his descendants. Daniel Flannery came to America around 1844 to escape the potato famine of 1844 -1852.

The earliest record found so far of their children in America is of son Daniel's marriage to Hannora Holland in Plainville, Ohio in 1856.

Later records show them in Wisconsin and Missouri. Some of the known sons worked for the railroad. In the early 1900's many of the descendants dropped one 'n' and going by Flanery. Some of the family can be found in different records with either spelling. Most went by "Flanery" by the mid 1900's.

Flannery Crest
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back
The sunshine warm upon your face.
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
