Welcome to the McLoughlin Family Tree, mainly reflecting decendents of Bernard McLoughlin and Ellen Doyle. This Family Tree is authored by me, Jim P. McLoughlin of California, grandson of Bernard and Ellen and son of James and Rose (McGowan).

Special thanks to cousin Mick McLoughlin of Leicestershire, England for continuing to be a fountain of information on our extended family, now spread across Ireland, England, Scotland, Australia, and the United States.

I would appreciate any information you can offer such as additional family names, places of residence, and dates of birth or death. Also, if you have a particular preference about how you would like to see your family presented, please let me know, and I'll do my best to accomodate you.

Please feel free to send me any pictures you'd like to see included on this web-site. Several of those you see here were taken the day of the McLoughlin Family reunion in Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim on July 28th, 2002. Earlier that same day, my cousin Mick brought me and my daughter Katie to the nearby hospital to visit our Uncle John, the last surviving son of Bernard and Ellen. Then, just an hour after our visit, Uncle John died at the age of 87, after a three year battle with cancer. Two days later, at the dinner immediately following John's funeral, his family members were gracious enough to allow me to take some photos, also included here.

Also, thanks to Mick's son, Andy, who is web-master of the multi-purpose McLoughlin Family web-site. Check out his link below.

Browse around and come visit our family tree from time to time. The roots run deep and the branches keep growing...

  • Thomas Doyle (16 KB)
    Thomas Doyle, born sometime in the mid to late 1800's. Photo taken circa 1915. Thomas was father of Ellen Doyle (McLoughlin). This oldest known photo in the family tree comes to us courtesy of Mick McLoughlin of Leicestershire, England. Bernie McLoughlin of Connecticut writes. "That is an incredible picture. I have the original in a 22"x26" in our Library right by this computer. My late mother told me that she acquired it in 1946 when she married my father. The picture was in Thomas Doyle's daughter's house in New Haven. This daughter was I believe the oldest and of course our grand mother was the youngest. I believe this daughter was married to a Geenty and settled in New Haven. My mother said that Thomas Doyle's daughter brought this picture back from Ireland early in the 20th century. Our grandmother Ellen also had a sister in New Haven (Connecticut) named Mariah Tighe. She lived 5 houses from us when I was growing up and I remember her turning 90 in the summer of 1961. She died later that year. Mariah had four children, all now deceased. There are only two grandchildren from that line: John Ford who is a retired IBM executive living in Trumbull, Ct and Jim Tighe a retired federal agent for Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco living in Katy, Texas.

  • Ellen (Doyle) McLoughlin and Others (39 KB)
    Mick McLoughlin writes: "This photo is of historical interest in that it shows six of the McLoughlins with their mother "Ma". I think it was taken about 1960. It shows, left to right: Ellie; Katie (Mary to the American side of the family), who died about 12 years ago; Ma, who died 26 March 1967; Maggie, who died about 8 years ago; Bridgie; John, who died 28 July 2001; and Michael, my father, who died in 1976. It was taken in the yard of Ellie's house, and the shed roof you can see in the background was the old cattle byre, now Shamus' lounge.
