In Conclusion


I can now report with confidence the following new or corrected information:  
Dennis Buggy

Dennis Buggy was born on or before 6 June 1829 to Richard Buggy and Mary Brannagan, probably at the Buggy family residence in Kyleballynamoe Townland, Tubbridbritain Civil Parish, Freshford Catholic Parish, County Kilkenny, Ireland.[1]

He was baptized 6 June 1829 in Freshford Catholic Parish, County Kilkenny, Ireland.[2]

Dennis Buggy married 1) Alice Fagan on 23 September 1854 in Derby, New Haven County, Connecticut.[3]

Dennis Buggy married 2) Catherine Phelan on 20 January 1856 at St. Mary Church, Derby, New Haven County, Connecticut.[4]  The couple may also have married on 17 January in Naugatuck.[5]


Please add this new information, along with its source information, to genealogy databases.  The sources are usually found in the footnotes and can be copied into database notes.

Many thanks to Ruth McLaughlin, Matthew Whalen, Michel Ann Dobyns, and my friend and yoga teacher (a Dennis Buggy descendant) for inspiration, encouragement and sharing.

Thanks to you for joining me.  It’s been a fun challenge.  I learned a lot, and I hope you did, too.

THE END (until new information surfaces to require reevaluation)
