Hello I am working on my direct paternal Mealey line. I manage my cousins y67 results. James Mealey -Living James Mealey-Living James Norman Mealey b.2 April 1947 Beverly Mass, d.14 Oct 1983 Salem Mass George John Mealey b. 30 March 1923 Peabody Mass. d.6 Feb. 1984 George William Mealey b. 9 Nov.1901 Peabody Mass. d. Nov.1965 Beverly Mass William R. Mealey b. 1872 Lowell Mass d.1940 Salem Mass. Micheal Mealey b. abt. 1839 PEI/Newfoundland d. 24 Nov. 1894 Lowell Mass. Lawrence Alonzo Mealey b.1800 Dunley Parish County Carlow Irish Free State d.1853 Lowell Mass. I am wondering where to go from here? What would be the next step or test to confirm my research? Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank You Donna Jean Tester Kit #691783 l-M223 James Mealey

Hello! My mother was an O’Malley. My O’Malley family came from Ireland initially to Wheeling, Ohio Co., WV (then known as Western Division of Virginia), not as one group, but appears to have possibly traveled with people they knew in Ireland. The ones we know of were the parents, Bridget Neilson/Nielson (sp?)(b. 1792) & Patrick O’Malley (b. 1788), and 5 children—Daniel (b. 1828), Mary Ellen (b. 1830), Catherine (b. 1832), Patrick (b. 1832-1836), & Bridget Ann (b. 1837). (Birth dates based on US census records, etc.). Based on the birth date of oldest child of these 5, the mother Bridget would have been 36 yrs old when Daniel was born. This tells me there must have been other children born prior to Daniel, but we have no information about how many or names of these “unknown” children. Mary Ellen married John Dixon 24 Jan 1852, in Wheeling, Ohio Co., WV, at St. Joseph’s Cathedral Catholic Church, and their daughter Bridget Louise Dixon was born in Wheeling on 6 Dec 1852. It is believed the father Patrick died in St. Louis, MO in 1853. John Dixon died in Riley Co., KS, on 7 Aug 1855. (Mary Ellen marries soon to John Henry Curtis.) The youngest known child Bridget Ann married Calvin Moses Dyche 23 Dec 1856, in Riley Co., KS. The son Patrick (b. 1832-36) was naturalized in Wheeling on 7 Sept 1857, married Ann Carey about one month later on 12 Oct 1857 at St. Xavier Catholic Church in St. Louis, MO (church marriage record provided parents names for Patrick & Ann). Daniel married Katherine “Kate” O’Malley (Ann Carey O’Malley’s sister) on 18 Jun 1858, in Riley Co., KS. Catherine married William A. Still on 23 Apr 1860, in Riley Co., KS. The mother Bridget & youngest child Bridget Ann were in Riley Co., KS, by 1855, along with Bridget’s daughter Mary with her husband John Dixon. (NOTE: The two Carey sisters also had a sister Mary Carey Kemple & a brother William Carey that stayed in Wheeling until their deaths. Mary Carey came on a ship with one of John Dixon’s brothers. On the ship that Patrick O’Malley (b. 1833-36) immigrated on, there was also a William Carey. In one of Kate Carey O’Malley’s obits, it was stated she was from Bangor Erris in Co. Mayo, Ireland. I am thinking that the O’Malleys were from a location not far from there. Also, the O’Malleys, Careys, & Dixons can all be found in records in Wheeling during the same time period. Patrick O’Malley & Ann Carey are my GGGP. I can be reached at opksmom”at”swbell.net. I had my 1C1R O’Malley male test thru FTDNA (Y-37; #436357). There is another O’Malley that agreed to test thru FTDNA (Y-37; #436483) whose O’Malley family came to Pottawatomie Co., KS, which is a neighboring county to Riley Co. We have not been able to figure out how these two O’Malley families might be related thru traditional genealogy records, although some members from both appear in a casual post funeral photo in mid-1950s. It appears the common ancestor was someone further back in Ireland.)

I handle my husbands DNA kits. He has tested Y-DNA 111 and R1b - M222 SNP Pack His haplogroup started at M-269 and as he upgraded he went to M-222 and finally after the SNP Pack he is now R-DF105 There appears to be a NPE around the 1850's which came as a shock. He has no matches to any Hodges in the Hodges Project and his highest matches are O'Malley. A little background. His supposed ggg grandparents George and Hannah Hodges arrived in Australia as convicts and went on to have a large family. I began to notice on Ancestry that he had no matches with any of their descendants. It wasn't until one of their 'grandsons' called Henry that the matches began. Henry was my husband's great grandfather. A match came up on Ancestry 33 cM across 4 segments which means we could share ggg grandparents and in her tree are O'Malley's. He was lucky enough to find a second cousin that tested that also descends from Henry and he too has the same match, in fact all descendants of Henry that have come up match with this O'Malley family. So my questions are; Do you think I'm on the right track in thinking he is an O'Malley? If so could you tell me a little about his branch? Thank you Jenny

Hi Jenny

I am one of those close matches. My ancestor John Malay was a convict and was convicted at the Old Bailey. He was transported to Van Diemens Land in 1830 and lived in Westbury, Tasmania. My closest match is with Dick O'Malley from the US whose ancestors came from Kinnadoohy in Ireland. Where did the Hodges live in Australia?

Hi Ian, three brothers were born between 1802 and 1810 at Fermoy, Co. Mayo, Ireland and were they tried at Mayo in 1833. The one I feel is my husbands likely ancestor ended up at Bathurst NSW. Thanks for your reply Jenny

I am genetically related to william hodges and and john malay who was transported. my great grandfather was John Melia born in Liverpool in 1852 (circa) and his father (Patrick?) Melia emigrated from Westport, Mayo during the Hunger. .But the matches are clear. I am R-DF 105 according to most recent analysis from my upload from 23&Me. But we shipped to the USA. Hectic times

Hi guys. I'm a great-great-great-great grandson of Luke O'Malley and Winifred Conroy. Both I believe born in Kilmaine Parish and lived in Killimor, The Neale. Their daughter Bridget was the mother of my Nana's maternal grandfather William Joyce. Is there any way I can add my father and my raw Ancestry DNA to the project so I can see if I match any of you all. Hoping I can discover more. I do know that Luke and Winifred had a son named James who is the second great grandfather of a couple of my Dad's DNA matches who helped me find that Killimor was the correct townland.

Hello friends and possible family members. I am new on here SO I am not familiar with Family Tree and how to use it, or DNA. Help me please somebody? I am very familiar with Ancestry and have an extensive tree there. My DNA details are on this site (uploaded by a distant O’Malley cousin) and my uncles' DNA is here too - he is a direct line male O'Malley or Meally [Ben Patrick O'Malley T685766 & me A309356]. We are in NSW Australia. Our ancestors came to Australia in 1842 as free settlers both of them. According to the shipping records, both Dominic b 1817 and Catherine b 1819 were named Meally and it was her maiden name too. I do not have details of exactly where they were born in Co Mayo unfortunately or when they were married. I have naming patterns of their 10 children only, as well as partially filled details of their death certificates in NSW Australia which stated Dominick’s father was John O’Malley and his mother was a Nolan. Catherine’s father was also a John. They could have been second cousins perhaps. Direct male line is John Meally b about 1790s Co Mayo RC possibly married a Nolan girl Dominick Meally b about 1817 Co Mayo labourer RC married Catherine Meally John Meally b 1849 Portland Vic Australia married Mary Ann Brennan NSW 1872 Benjamin Patrick O’Malley b 1898 NSW married Adelaide KEEP NSW 1922 Benjamin Patrick O’Malley b 1934 NSW (Sibling Joyce M O’Malley b1922 my mother)

Hi All! I married an O'Mailey and my son is an O'Mailey! I am in Rochester, NY. I can be found on Ancestry.com at kacielorraine and feel free to email me at kacielorraine@gmail.com. The farthest I have traced back the O'Mailey name so far is to David Owen O'Mailey/Mailey (B: 4 Mar 1886 in Ireland D: 24 Aug 1930 in Rochester, New York) with a possible father named Hugh. I of course hope to go much farther back! We have yet to do DNA testing, but plan to!

i have gone back to 1991 to John Mealey a GGGG grandfather of mine . The Name was originally O' Malley they came from Scotland in 11 century to Ireland , the Name spelling changed during the plantation by the British in 1366 and 1615 as anyone with an Irish sounding name had to change it to allow them to work under BRITISH RULE . it became Maley Malley Mealy and finally Meally and there you have it , bye now Michael Meally .

I have a number of O'Malley DNA matches across several DNA testing companies, but I couldn't find an O'Malley ancestor. That may have changed. Ancestry "Thrulines" has found a possible O'Malley 4th great grandmother. It's not a "slam dunk", but Its the best lead so far!

Try modern spelling of the name O' Malley, ie Malley - Maley - Mealey - Mealy - Meally .Sender Michael Meally .
