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
  • Occupation*: Andrew Sorohan was a farmer before 1887.2
  • Biography*: Andrew is noted as a widower at the time of his death in 1887.2
  • Name Variation: As of 1887, Andrew Sorohan was also known as Sorahan.3
  • 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
