I have added the Griffiths Index for landholders in Latteragh in Tipperary. You will notice MOLOUGHNEY holding land at Knocknagoogh, Latteragh.
Also mentioned on the GLEESON/MOLOUGHNEY marriage certificate were present their parents. Thomas GLEESON's mother is noted as Johanna TUOHY by the family member holding the said certificate, of which there is some disagreement many think her name was TUCKY. As I've not personally seen the certificate I cannot comment but I would be more inclined to trust the certificate before hearsay. Her forename name was Johanna and she died on the 26 December 1865 at Nenagh Tipperary, Ireland

Winifred is my Great Great Grandmother, from mty mother side. I have an extract of the marriage cert to william whelan , and her surname is spelt Molochney, witnessed by - John Kennedy and Andrew ( her brother) and a Patrick- at Parish of Templederry County Tipperary. William was born 30th July 1826. Parish of Roscrea County Tipperary. His parents are Edward and Nancy Whelan. His Sponsors were John and Mary Quinlan.

From family recollection, her surname should be spelt Moloughney. Also
family recollections do confirm that Thomas Gleesons mother is a tucky .

Thomas Gleeson was intoxicated and so roughly handled the bridle on the horse, this caused the horse to rear, an he suffered a fracture of the spine and concussion. He was aged 43.

John mcredmond( her 3rd Husband) was born 1834 and died 27th April 1916 at New Norfolk Tasmania. he is Buried North Crescent Cemetary New Norfolk . Elizabeth ( their daughter) married Owen Eugene Cashion and Had 11 children.
