Ellen Dugan Heffernan
Birth: 1815
Holycross
County Tipperary, Ireland
Death: Nov. 12, 1898
Madison County
New York, USA

Ellen Dugan Heffernan was born about 1815 in Holy Cross, Tipperary, Ireland. About 1844 she married Thomas Heffernan. In 1863 he and son Timothy came to America. A few months later Ellen and her surviving eight other children joined them in Madison County, New York. One of the children passed on an illness to Thomas, and he passed away, leaving Ellen a widow at age 48 with nine children in a new land. Their children were: Norah Heffernan Donnelly, Timothy Heffernan, Patrick Heffernan, John Heffernan, Catherine ("Kate") Heffernan Sheahan, Michael Heffernan, Thomas Heffernan, James Heffernan, and Edward Heffernan. By 1880 she was living with her son Patrick. She died at age 83 in November 1898 in Madison County, and family tradition is that she is probably buried in an unmarked grave near her husband in St. James Catholic Cemetery in Cazenovia, Madison County, New York. The cemetery, however, has no record of her burial there. So, if not St. James, what cemetery?

Thanks so much to all the Heffernan family genealogists for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
