Looking for information on:
Catherine Carty (McCarty?), born Ireland circa 1862, Mother Ellen, Father John. Was in Boston before 1880.
John Ahern, born Ireland circa 1828 (co. Cork?). Father Simon, Mother Ellen. Emigrated to Boston mid 1840s, Married Ellen Flanagan
Any infor helpful. Thanks

Since Simon is an uncommon name in Ireland, and since I see Simon Aherns in Griffith's Valuation only in Cork, I would try the enormous multivolume compendium of Kerry and Cork information called O'Kief Coshe Mang, Slieve Lougher and Upper Blackwater Ireland. The printing is very small and each volume is separately indexed, but I have found many obituaries, probate records, memorial inscriptions and vital records in it for my McCarthys and Mayburys in far western Kerry. There is a copy of it in a few libraries I know of--you can do a search on Worldcat.org to see if there is one near you. Bring a magnifying glass!
