I am Teresa Hanifin. My father Cletus James Hanifin was an attorney is Southern CA. He moved here from Illinos. He had 3 sons and adopted me. His first son was Patrick Hanifin. He remarried and had James Cletus Hanifin and Michael James Hanifin. He remarried after the death of his second wife and Virginia Lee Cook and him adopted me and named me Teresa Hanifin. Cletus had a brother and 2 sisters. Bill Hanifin moved to Hawaii and Margaret married and became Margaret Robertson. Marcella was the youngest she married and became Marcella Bray. I hope this helps.
Hello, I’m looking for information about my great-grandmother Ellen Hanifin, born somewhere in Ireland in about 1832, died in San Francisco in 1882. She was married to Dennis Cuff. I think her mother’s first name was Margaret. Anyone have any clues about her?
Hey folks! Just reaching out to anyone interested in the Florence, Oneida County, NY and/or the Yonkers, NY Hanifins. These were William Hanifin’s and John Hanifin, two brothers who came over from Kerry in 1834-35. The William was married to Ellen Malone in FLorence NY. He had John, William, Ellen, Catherine, Bridget (m. Connors) and Mary. John moved with his family to Yonkers NY. around 1885. His brother John married a Mary Golden in Oneida Co.,NY but moved with his family (Catherine, John, William B,and Thomas) to Palmer MA. They then had a son Morris there. Eventually John and Mary ended up in Chicopee (before I lost them!) Their children ended up all around the Springfield area- Longmeadow, Palmer etc…let me know if you’d like more info!
I can’t believe that I found Hanifin information with this spelling. My Dad always told me that the spelling was often varied. My Dad, Daniel, was born in 1901 in Inch Strand, Dingle area of Co.Kerry. He, his brothers John and Dennis, emigrated to the USA in the around the 1920s. Their brother, Stephen, stayed in Co. Kerry. My Dad settled in Brooklyn, NY., then moved to Newark, NJ after marrying my mother. My uncles settled in Newark also. My grandparents were Patrick Hanifin and Ellen Moriarty of Inch Strand.
I was never aware of any Hanifin cousins, though my Dad told of some settling in California and Australia.
My brothers, Patrick and John, and I were born and raised here in NJ. Patrick is deceased. My six Hanifin nephews are scattered between NJ, Va, Pa, and Mass.
