Hello to all you Mooney's out there. I've been doing family research for the past 12 years...so very difficult for me to locate our Mooney's who originally came from 40 miles of Dundee, Scotland. Evidently Felix (b. 1847) and Ned Mooney, (born in Ireland, after their predecessors had moved from Scotland to Ireland) were sea captains and emigrated to New York City. Felix served in the U.S. Civil War for the Union side in a volunteer infantry division. Ned owned his own ship and brought cargo (lots of lumber, trees) into the port of New York and into the port of Galveston, Texas. My granddad spoke of them often; of Felix's wife, Bridget (b. 1848), and their children. Their daughter Agnes (1876) owned an antiques shop in NYC. Another daughter, Annie (1873), worked for one of her sisters who was a milinist (ladies hat maker). Their other children were Catherine (1869), Mary (1870) ,John (1877) & Bridget (1878). I Anna Monney's parents were unhappy about her marrying William Wolfortt in NYC, as he was a Catholic. They virtually disowned her for this reason. Anyhow, if you're interested in finding any of these folks or have information that might help me further my research, please visit my family tree at ancestry.com; It is listed under Kimberly Wolfort or you may email me at email@example.com. Cheers!
Ok. So my dad told me a story about how I am somehow a direct descendant of the right hand man of Black Beard. Im not sure if that is on the Mooney side of my family or the Keeling side. So if anybody has any information on that, I would LOVE to hear about it:) I am a LDS member, so I would suggest using familysearch.com if you want to research. By the way, if anyone has any good stories about the Lunt name, I would love to hear them! Thanks everyone!!!
I honestly never thought there was this many Mooneys out there and I honestly know nothing about anyone in my family tree or where anyone is from?!?
