Abel F. Mahony, Death Record, Nov. 13, 1939―"Father/Birthplace: Abel, Killarney. Mother/Birthplace: Ellen O'Sullivan, Killarney"




Gravestone in Castleisland―"Uncle Cain" is probably Kain Mahony (op cit), born 1828. The stone, erected in 1982, may have been partly for the purpose of providing some genealogy of Mahonys with the rare names of Cain and Abel.

2.  A number of connected names are in pews near each other:
Ellen and Maggie (dau. Margaret) Mahony,
Mrs. Alex Logue, Mollie's maternal grandmother,
Mrs. John Loeher (misspelled), Mollie's mother, Emily "Bella" Loehr
Alice Flynn is right next to Mrs. Loehr.
This may be where the Mahony-Flynn relationship started. The Flynns were also from Kerry. 
Bernard and James Degnan (Dignan), of the hatter's wife's family
The names Ball, Flood, and Lyons also appear, all of whom eventually had business relationships with Mahony the Hatter.
St. Mary's was the premier Catholic church in Yonkers back then, and to pay for a pew every year was a pretty big expenditure for sure.
