JOHN GUBBINS RIORDAN AND MARGARET HEALY

E-mail khahn123@aol.com for more information on the family of JOHN GUBBINS RIORDAN

He was born 16 May 1846, in Ballyvorneen, Caherconlish Parish, Limerick, Ireland
Ballyvorneen is in the Diocese of Cashel and Emly, which includes towns in both Limerick County and Tipperary County.

LIMERICK seems to be a very useful site for Limerick information.

John Riordan's father was DANIEL RIORDAN and his mother was JOHANNA GUBBINS
John G. Riordan moved to Chicago, with his brother Daniel and his sister Sarah in about 1867.On 21 June 1868 he married MARGARET HEALY. Margaret was born in Ireland (c.1845) and moved to Iowa with her family when she was very young.
She moved to Illinois in about 1865.

I have placed the obituaries of John G. Riordan and of Daniel Riordan's widow, Elizabeth Knott, online
