Timothy Coakley, my gggrandfather, was born in Cork, Ireland. He met and married Margaret Hogan, also of Cork, and together they emigrated to Dixon, Illinois, USA. There they raised five sons: Cornelius (my ggrandfather)b.12 Mar 1840, John S. b.1843, James b.1845, Thomas b.1848, Thomas Quinn b.1858.

Any information about the Coakley clan would be welcomed and appreciated.

Timothy Coakley was the brother of my 3rd great-grandfather Cornelius Coakley. Timothy never did live in Dixon, IL. He married Mary Hogan in LaSalle Co. and they lived near Arlington, IL and LaMoille, IL and then Walnut (all near where I grew up in Bureau County, IL). I'm still trying to figure out the Hogan family, as Cornelius married Mary Ann Hogan, who MAY have been a sister of Timothy's wife Margaret Hogan. If that is true, Margaret was from County Tipperary, not Cork like Timothy and Cornelius. Cornelius was actually born in Dunmanway, County Cork and Timothy in Bantry, County Cork. You are missing quite a few children of Timothy's - he had 12 in all. I've figured out 11. With Margaret (Hogan) Coakley: Cornelius was the oldest, and then John S., Thomas Quinn, James, Daniel, Michael and Timothy Jr. Then after Margaret died, he married Ann Burns and had William Henry, Andrew Joseph and Mary A. Coakley. I do have a photo of Timothy and one of his wife Ann Burns Coakley. They also had an older brother Daniel who came to this country. He left his estate to my Cornelius' living children. Not sure why he didn't leave anything to Timothy's children? It's been a few years since you left this message, so maybe you've already found all this.

Timothy Coakley was my great-great-grandfather. I am interested in ancestors of Timothy and have a lot of information of descendants of Cornelius (my great grandfather). I will share with anyone interested.
