About Family Branches

James Byrne and Sarah Mellon were from the west of Ireland. One of their children, Katie, married a Monaghan policeman named John McKenna.

Arthur Phillips and Sarah McCormick were from County Antrim. One of their daughters, Sarah, married a Meath gardener named Patrick Bennett.

One of John and Katie's children was named Peter Henry. One of Patrick and Sarah's was named Margaret (Rita). Peter and Rita had seven children. This site is primarily the work of Paddy McKenna (RIP), one of those seven children.

It is intended to be a collaboration with others of their descendants. All assistance is therefore appreciated!

Family members can also view the blog that accompanies this TribalPages site, Wandering Around The Branch, which focuses on the Byrne and McKenna families, drawing on the letters preserved by Laurence Byrne (1858-1940) and the memoir written by John McKenna (1871-1943) of his time in the Royal Irish Constabulary around the time of partition.
