Michael Sorohan1

M, b. circa 1761
  • Note*: Michael Sorohan and Thomas Sorohan On the 1821 Irish Census for County Cavan, Townland of Dennbane, there are three Sorohan/Sorahan families living in close proximity to each other. Given the ages, it has been hypothesized that the two oldest are brothers, specifically Thomas Sorohan, age 45 and Michael Sorohan, age 60. It is also believed that the third Sorohan, Thomas, age 30, is the son of the older brother, Michael. Further, a descendant of each of the believed "brothers" has tested his DNA and the Y chromosome matches exactly, proving they descend from a common Sorahan/Sullivan ancestor. Unfortunately, the match is too far back, as of yet, to find autosomal matches that might help support our hypotheses.
  • 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

Family: Bridget (?) b. c 1761
