I saw your message from 9/06 regarding Tarmeys in the Williamstown area. I was especially taken by your mention of Michael Tarmey of Kilnalag.
My mom, Nora Keane, was born in Moneen which is just down the road from Kilnalag. Her dad was a Martin Keane and her mom was Kate Tobin. She came to the US in 1928 and returned for a visit in the early 1930s. While looking through old photos she had saved, I came across a photo of a tombstone for a Michael Tarmey of Kilnalag. I don't have the dates handy as I moved recently and a lot of my documnets are in boxes.
I don't know if there is a connection between our families but I assumed Michael had some significance for my mom or she wouldn't have saved the photo for so many years.
Please drop me a line as I would love to make a connection if possible
