Looking for CULLEN, SMALE, COFFEY, MAFFEY, MILLER, etc., of Illinois

Query by bonzodog26

I would like to make contact with any descendants of my great granduncle, Patrick Joseph Cullen (1863-1931) who was born in Humewood, Kiltegan, County Wicklow, Ireland. He emigrated to Rockford, Illinois in 1887, where he married Catherine (Katie) Ida Cleary from the west of Ireland in 1890. I believe he was a Weigh master at a stone quarry in the Rockford area. It is said that he survived a hurricane while at work. The following details were freely obtained from various genealogical websites and it is the only information I have of this branch of the family to date.

Patrick & Katie's family:-

1. Loretta Cullen (m. Edmond Smale; family: Donald Smale [m. Louise Stambaugh] & Jean Smale [m. George W. Coffey])

2. Anna Cullen (m. Joseph Maffey; family: Doris Maffey [m. Ralph Miller] & Shirley Maffey [m. Edward C. Dorr & Gunnard E. Sjoblom])

3. Veronica Cullen (died young)

4. William Cullen (m. Anna Peterson; family: Alice [m. Kenneth Lee Darrion] & Loraine Cullen of Seattle. William later m. Ida Westrick)

5. Patrick Cullen (m. Mabel Manning; family: John & Raymond Cullen)

6. Raymond John or John Raymond Cullen (m. Viola Holmquist; family: Thomas Cullen [m. Frances Marshall] & Geraldine Cullen [m. Ralph C. Foster])

7. Lester T. Cullen (family: unknown)

My aim is to make contact with my 3rd cousins, complete the genealogy of this branch of the family, and to share with them the genealogy of our entire Cullen family dating back to 1799 in Ireland. Please submit a comment or contact me through this website if you are related to any of the above. Thank you.

Hi Lester. Are you related to any of the people listed above? If so, how are you related, and to whom?

I am the Great Granddaughter of Raymond Cullen. Geraldine "Jerry" (Connell) Cullen is my grandmother. I know a lot more information if you would like to expand on the family tree, let me know

Hi grisgurl. Thanks for posting your comment. It's great to find someone that is actually related to the above branch. If we're talking about the same family (and it's not just coincidence) then your great great grandfather, Patrick Cullen, is one of my great grandfather's brothers (his name was William). Their other siblings were James, Thomas, John, and Mary Cullen.
Do you recognise the other names I put in the tree above? Does it agree with the info you have? I hope we can swap family data by email.
My address is [email protected]

Hi Grisgurl,
I am seeking info on Viola Holmquist. Will you contact me if you're still monitoring? Thanks!
