Thomas Lahiff
Thomas Lahiff
A photo of Thomas Lahiff, son of John and Eliza Fitzgerald Lahiff who was born in Kilcorny County Clare Ireland. He had musical talent and it was said he could play any song he heard by ear on the piano. His daughters were also musically inclined and sang and danced their way to stardom on Broadway. The most famous of his daughters was Ann who changed her name to Nancy Carroll. She was among the first of many to have a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. An amazing feat for someone with poor Irish roots.

Catherine Kate Lahiff
A photo of Catherine “Kate” Lahiff who was born in 1866 on board a ship that was in Australian waters, hence she always referred to herself as Australian but she was very much Irish. In her lifetime she traveled to Australia as a domestic servant, lived in Providence, Rhode Island as a helper to her aunt Honora Lahiff McMahon, and married Henry Stone of England settling in New York for the remainder of her life. She and her husband continued to travel making three trips abroad to England and France. They had four children including Cecil McClintock Stone, John Henry Stone, Charlotte Agnes Stone (Taylor) and Cyril Granville Stone. Her sorrow included losing John Henry at 18 months to meningitis and losing her oldest son Cecil when he disappeared in 1928. He was never heard from again. Some described her as somewhat cold and unloving but her childhood left little time for nurturing and she learned to deal with life in a matter of fact way. She did adore Cecil and had high hopes for him. She encouraged his musical talents and he was often featured in local talent shows. Her husband Henry was a keen business man and she never again experienced the poverty of her youth.

John Lahiff
John Lahiff was a peasant Herder taking care of cattle in the Burren of County Clare most of his life. In 1873, he came to America with his mother and four young children entering through Castle Garden. He returned to Ireland minus one son who died in Providence, Rhode Island but having gained a baby daughter there as well. They returned to the Burren and continued to have children. In his late 50’s he again attempted to relocate his family to America, entering through Ellis Island in 1889. This time they remained in Newport, Rhode Island near his sisters Margaret and Honora. He lived out the remainder of his life there and died in 1919 never knowing his grandchildren would make great accomplishments as business people, Tavern owners, and even Broadway stars with one becoming the first to sing and dance in a talkie movie.
Eliza Fitzgerald Lahiff
Eliza Fitzgerald Lahiff
A photo of Eliza Fitzgerald, who married John Lahiff in 1864 in the Catholic Chapel of Carron, County Clare, Ireland. He was a Herd in the Barron and she a Herd’s daughter. She was a strong hard working woman. In her 55 years, she traveled from Ireland to Australia, back to Ireland, on to America, back to Ireland again and finally came to rest in Newport Rhode Island. She was the mother of 10 children all of whom made it to adulthood save one young Patrick who died of meningitis on her first trip to America. All of her children were baptized in the Catholic Church and most of them in St Columba church in Carron in the Burren County Clare. There must have been some entertainer in the family genes as many of her children and grandchildren were known for their musical and acting ability. Eliza died not long after arriving in America the second time and is buried on St Columba’s cemetery in Middletown, Newport, Rhode Island.
Her children included Bridget, Catherine (Kate), Thomas, Patrick, Mary Ellen, Peter, Honora, Michael, William and James Joseph.
