of County Monaghan & Southern NE

I have one major family of MARTIN/McMAHON and married sons/daughters who left Clogher Diocese starting 1824. That family is shown immediately below; they settled in MA, CT & RI. I have a second family (related) of LARKIN/McGOUGH 
who left between 1839 and 1842 and came to Pawtucket, RI. That family is shown at bottom (note the middle name WILSON given one son). Further note: at least in USA these families were without exception Roman Catholic. As yet, I have found no records in Ireland of these families. All data is from records in US or headstones.

OBITUARY …. Pawtucket, Providence, RI
Friday, February 15, 1907. Pawtucket Gazette & Chronicle

Colonel James William Larkin.
Col. James W. Larkin died at his home, corner of Knowles street and West avenue, on Monday, the immediate cause being shock. He had been in good health of late, although he felt well enough until last Saturday to be about his business. James W. Larkin was born in this city in 1847, had lived here all his life and received his education in the public schools. At the age of 21 years he entered the grocery and grain business on North Main st., under the firm name of Pierce & Larkin, and while in this business he was elected a member of the Town Council of North Providence, of which Pawtucket was then a part. His parents were Thomas and Ellen (Gough) Larkin. After Pawtucket became a city he was elected a member of the Common Council from the Fifth Ward in 1890. The title of colonel was due to his service in the Rhode Island militia, he having been colonel of the Fifth Battalion, now the Second Regiment, for several years. When a young man, Col. Larkin was prominent in the Fenian movement in this state, and was the treasurer of the local committee. He was a member of Branch 268, Catholic Knights of America. After retiring from the grain business, in which he remained for 20 years, he took the road as salesman for the wholesale grocery houses, and until his health began to fail he was active in the duties of this position. In 1878 he married Miss Catherine E. Martin, daughter of the late Dennis Martin, a leather manufacturer of this city, and she and two daughters and a son survive him. A brother of the late Col. Larkin, Peter Larkin, died a few weeks ago. The funeral took place Thursday and was largely attended. His remains were removed from his late home, 238 West avenue, to St. Mary's Church, where a requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. McCabe. Many relatives and friends assisted at the mass, at the conclusion of which Miss Kathleen O'Brien sang, "He Leadeth Me." The flowers included a large floral piece from the employees of the millinery department of the Shepard Store, Providence. The bearers were Charles E. Gorman and James P. Tierney of Providence; Daniel Murphy, John T. Maguire, Robert J. Casey, and Thomas O'Brien of this city, the latter two being representatives of the Catholic Knights of America. Burial was at Mount St. Mary's Cemetery.
