The Timmons Family

Gregory Timmons was born in Ireland, probably in the 1860s or 70s. About all I know of him is that by the 1890s he was living in the town of Garyross, in County Cavan. According to his daughter's birth certificate, his occupation was that of a farmer. His wife's name was Anne, although her maiden name is not known.

The children of Gregory and Anne Timmons were:

Another reference to a Timmons family in County Cavan is found in the 1796 Flaxgrowers Bounty List; it mentions an Owen Timmons of Kilsherdney, Co. Cavan being awarded a spinning wheel for growing 1/4 acre of flax.

I have been told of an Owen Timmons who immigrated to Liverpool from Ireland in the 1830s but I do not know what relation he has to the above Owen. However, I do find it interesting that Roseanne Timmons, above, was born in Ireland and later married Bernard Heerey in Liverpool, so I can't help but wonder if this is the same family.

I will begin posting other Timmons info here as I find it, whether or not it relates to my family. e-mail me if you have anything to add.
