Andrew Sorohan1

M, b. circa 1801, d. 20 February 1887
  • Birth*: Andrew Sorohan was born circa 1801.1,2
  • (Witness) Census: He appeared on the census of 1821 in the household of Michael Sorohan and Bridget (?) at Dennbawn, Denn Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.1
  • Anecdote*: Michael Sorohan (c1761-?) is the father of Andrew Sorohan (c1801-?) per the 1821 Cavan Census. On Andrew (bc1801) death registration, his son is listed as Michael Sorahan. This Michael bc1836 names his first son Andrew who dies in 1923. I am looking for the marriage record of Michael Sorahan bc1836 and Mary Smith.
    Also, a possible great, great grandchild of Michael bc1761 has taken a DNA test which might show her relationship to descendants of Michael Sorohan if my theory is correct. DNA results should appear in early June, 2017.
    The results of Teresa Sulllivan Cahill's DNA came in and she shows as a third cousin, once removed to Elaine McIntyre Beaudoin. This supports the notion that Andrew (bc1801) and Patrick (bc1794) are brothers.2
  • Biography*: Andrew is noted as a widower at the time of his death in 1887.2
  • Occupation*: Andrew Sorohan was a farmer before 1887.2
  • Death*: He died on 20 February 1887 at Denbawn, County Cavan, Ireland. On Andrew's death registration, informant is given as Michael Sorahan, son of deceased, who was present at his death.2

Michael Sorohan1

M, b. circa 1761
  • Birth*: Michael Sorohan was born circa 1761.1
  • Marriage*: He married Bridget (?) circa 1791. Assumed date of marriage somewhere before the date of birth of oldest child living at home in 1821.1
  • Anecdote*: The Cavan County 1821 Irish Census shows this family unit. At this time I am hypothesizing that the son Andrew bc1801 is the grandfather of Captain Andrew Sullivan (1882-1923).
  • Occupation*: Michael Sorohan was a farmer in 1821.1
  • Census*: He and Bridget (?) appeared on the census of 1821 at Dennbawn, Denn Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.1
