I came upon your message from 2003 on the Genes Reunuited site just recently, I also have have been searching for information on the O'Leary family from Mountain Ash South Wales. I am a great grandaughter of Daniel O'Leary who was born in Millstreet Co. Cork in1841. He moved to Mountain Ash with his wife Catherine nee Moynihan and their family some time during the 1890's.Catherine and Daniel had I believe nine in family, Daniel, Catherine, Hanora, John, Cornielius, Denis, Timothy, Patrick and Peter. My grandfather John returned to Millstreet in1898 married my grandmother Mary Kelleher they lived in Killmeedy Millstreet, the eldest of their family was my late father Daniel. I know. John's brother Cornielius visited Killmeedy in the 1940's and 50's I have photos taken over that time. I do hope you receive this message and we can share information on our family.
Mary O'Leary-Gleeson.
