Nora Heffernan Donnelly
Birth: Nov. 13, 1861
Glenough Lower
County Tipperary, Ireland
Death: Oct. 27, 1958
Cicero
Onondaga County
New York, USA

The youngest of nine children of Thomas Heffernan and Ellen Dugan Heffernan, Honora "Nora" Heffernan Donnelly was born November 13, 1861 in Glenough Lower, Tipperary, Ireland. She came to America in 1864 (the year her father died) as a very young child and later married Irish-American Thomas John Donnelly, on October 18, 1881 in Cazenovia, Madison County, New York. They lived in Canastota, Madison County where they raised seven children: Thomas James Donnelly, Helen M. Donnelly Dietz, Mary Lillian "Mame" Donnelly Barrett, Nora Donnelly, Catherine Donnelly, John Dardis Donnelly, and Dorothy Donnelly Heintz. Norah was almost 97 when she died on October 27, 1958 in Cicero, Onondaga County, New York. She is buried in Saint James Catholic Cemetery in Cazenovia. The Heffernans are descended from Eneas Heffernan (16th century), a Knight of Saint John of Jerusalem (Knight of Malta) and Bishop of Emly.
