Hello--My name is Mary-Jane (Janie) McCabe and I would like to share some basic family history of my O'Malley line. The oldest relative I could find was Ann Staunton born in 1839 who is my Great-Great Grandmother.She married William Mitchell (1823-1870) on November 20, in 1852 in Annagh Mayo, Ireland. They had four children: Mary born in 1854 (my Great Grandmother) in Ballyhaunis Mayo. Edward born 1870 in Churchpark Ballyhaunis Augustine born August 7, 1869 and Michael born 1879 in Churchpark Ballyhaunis. Michael died January 1946 in Rotherham Yorkshire England at age 75.William SR died at age 47 in Ballyhaunis. His widow, Ann Staunton lived at Chrurchpark Ballyhaunis in 1911 she was 72 years old and resided with her son Edward Mitchell who was 34 years old.

Harold "Mike" O'Malley
August 11, 2017 @ 6:44pm
Hello! I have just now placed Harold "Mike" Clifton O'Malley in the O'Malley project group. His sister, Jane O'Malley Brown, is actually the one registered with her email at FTDNA. I had asked them to do the Y test for me as my mother is an O'Malley. I also have my mother's 1st cousin, Fred O'Malley, already registered with the O'Malley project. We are from 2 different O'Malley families--both in Kansas for several generations. We believe we are related because of a group photo from the 1950's following a funeral with members from both families in the same photo. Obviously THEY knew they were related, but none of us have discovered how. My mom & Fred's families grew up in one county, and Jane & Mike's family grew up in a neighboring county. Each of the families have done a lot of old fashioned genealogy research, and with no luck tying them together. We go back to about 1850 on the O'Malley lines. Jane has asked me for my help--large learning curve concerning how best to use DNA results--so you can contact me thru my email: email@example.com and you will reach Susan Foster Nelson. Thanks!

Hi, I’m Susan Minnehan, wife of Francis (Fran) and thanks for allowing us to join your group. Fran has several O’Malley autosomal dna matches so I thought joining this group might be helpful to us (and possibly some of you) in learning the connection. I believe some of his matches are members of this group.
From the research I’ve been able to do it appears several of his O’Malley matches descend from Michael O’Malley born about 1770 in Maddaboy, Murroe, Limerick, Ireland.
Unfortunately we have no idea if the connection is from his great grandfather John Minihan born about 1820 in Limerick or Tipperary or his great grandmother Mary Larner, also born about 1820. We’re not positive where in Ireland she was from but think it may also be Limerick/Tipperary.
So if anyone matches Francis Minnehan on the various testing sites we’d love to hear from you! Thanks for reading this.

“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)”

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?

We are new to this group. My brother Michael Farrell Jr. results are included. We have a strangely low number of Farrell's on his match list. We ran the match list through Tyrone Bowes analysis and his results determined that our time as Farrell's has been relatively short. About 1/3 of those on the match list are O'Malley's or some variation. Here is what the report said: "We have pinpointed your Irish origenes to be the O'Malley family from Maddyboy, County Limerick, Ireland. " Now I just have to figure out how we jumped to Farrell...adoption perhaps. I understand that these origins are estimated to be about 1000 years ago. Our written Farrell records begin about 1825 in Buffalo, NY. It would be a great help if anyone knows of a Farrell-O'Malley relationship. I'm going to look for some Farrell's in Limerick now. I have about 800 years of mystery to solve. The switch could have happened a long time ago....
