INTRODUCTION 




FEW YEARS AGO T attended a "Home Comfng" in the 
little village of my birth and early childhood, Somerset 
Center, Michigan, at which were present a vast number 
of the former residents of the town and vicinity, many of 
whom are more or less prominent in the various endeav- 
ors of life, and among the number were several of my immediate 
relatives. 

Until that time, my interest in genealogy matters had been but 
slight, but, awakened by the old scenes of my early life, and inspired 
by the throng of old friends and neighbors who were that day 
reunited, and realizing that we all hold the memory of our ancestors 
in deep respect, I decided to acquiesce in the request of the McCourties 
there present, to attempt the collection^nd classification of such 
family statistics and records as might be secured. 

This decision was made without much idea of what the work 
involved, but, once begun, it resulted in the sending and receiving 
of many hundreds of letters, searching the records of many counties 
in several of the different states, and in the course of my investiga- 
tions I incidentally traversed a great portion of this country and 
personally interviewed members of the family in various sections 
of America. As a result of all this, it was my pleasant privilege, 
about a year ago, to place in the hands of each living member of the 
McCourtie family in America, a copy of the history of that family, 
and the keen interest and appreciation with which the same was 
received has prompted me to compile and publish this little booklet 
covering the history of the Cohan family in America, in loving 
memory of my mother. 

1 have no apologies whatever to make for the imperfections that 
may be found in this history. While the failure or delay in securing 
desired information was, at times, discouraging, the satisfaction of 
having finally secured even so much is, to me, gratifying. 1 pre- 
sume that all genealogists have found it impossible to get replies 
from any considerable number of those addressed. To those, how- 
ever, who have assisted in furnishing such records as they could, in 
many cases exercising much interest and energetic research in 
unearthing valuable data which has been of great assistance in un- 
ravelling the tangled clues of ancestry, 1 can only express my cordial 
thanks and assure them that their encouragement and their desire 
to see the history in print, has kept my courage good and led me 
to persevere to the end. 

In assembling this data I have made many pleasant friends and 
acquaintances, have met with uniform courtesy from town and 



county clerks and state officials in the United States and in Ireland, 
during a recent visit for the purpose of this research. I have had 
many amusing' adventures, and have experienced more of the genuine 
pleasure and beauty of life through this work, than could possibly 
have been my privilege otherwise. 

In the arrangement of this work I have endeavored to consider 
the simplest method possible, and have included practically all data 
received covering the entire American ancestry period, (57 years, 
from the date of the emigration to America of William Cohan, the 
first, to and including the year 1914. This period includes the history 
of 113 members of the Cohan family, 82 of whom are now living, 
and to each of these 1 am sending gratis a copy of this booklet. 
Additional copies may be had upon request. 

In conclusion, 1 commend this, with my best wishes, to the Cohan 
family in America, and trust that in the future, descendants of the 
family may seem disposed to take up the thread here left off, and 
perfect and continue the same from generation to generation.

ST. JOHNS, NEW BRUNSWICK 

* William Cohan (II) Founder of the Cohan Family in America. 

William Cohan, son of Cornelius Cohan and Joanna Sattery, 
of Bandon, County Cork-, Ireland; married to Honorah Burke, 
daughter of William Burke and Catherine Deasy (Dacey) 
Burke. These families lived along the mail coach road 
(probably in Desert-Dizard— Bellelangly, Killbrittain or 
Haw idea:') close to the town of Bandon, which is a very quaint 
and picturesque city of about 10,000 people, situated in the 
beautiful valley of the Bandon River in County Cork, where 
is located the famous Blarney Castle. To William Cohan and 
Honorah Burke Cohan were horn nine children, Joanna, Tim- 
othy, Catherine, Cornelius, William, Patrick, Mary, Margaret 
and John. Joanna, Timothy and John died in infancy and 
are buried at Bandon, Ireland. Honorah Burke Cohan died 
in March, 1847, and is buried at Bandon, Ireland, but as no 
church or official records or statistics were kept until the year 
1855, the exact burial cemetery is unknown. Her brother, 
Daniel Burke, later removed to England and all effort to 
definitely trace the Burke family has been unsuccessful, altho 
there are several Burke families still residing in Bandon, 
Ireland, one of which, Daniel Burke, a grocer, baker ami pro- 
vision merchant, expressed the belief that their relationship 
can be later established. A nephew of Honorah Burke Cohan, 
Michael Burke, who once resided in Boston, Mass , and whose 
daughters, Catherine and Leonara, still reside at Somerville, 
Mass., has since returned to Ireland mid now resides > me 
where in the vicinity of Bandon. Another nephew of Honorah 
Burke Cohan, William Burke, resided at 822 Magnolia St., 
Oakland, Cal., in 1907, and still resides in Oakland, and it is 
reported that one of his three sons, John J. Burke, educated 
for the priesthood at Santa Clara College, but who afterward 



12 

practiced law, was a member of the State Legislature oJ < al 
lfornia in 1907, and died during a strenuous session of that 
body. Two other sons, Bernard B. (unmarried) and William 
H. Burke, Jr., with a family of four children, also reside in 
Oakland. 

There are no Cohans now residing in Bandon, Ireland, 
or vicinity, and it is the opinion of the writer, who recently 
visited Bandon, that the Cohan family may probably have 
originated in Wexford County, where it is reported that sev- 
eral Cohan families still reside, and that William Cohan, our 
ancestor, may have removed to Bandon from Wexford. Jere- 
mith Deasy, Insurance Broker, born Bandon, Ireland, 1843, 
now of 2053 Sutter St., San Francisco, Cal., is undoubtedly a 
cousin. 

Immediately following- the death of* Honorah Burke Cohan, 
William Cohan, with his daughters, Catherine, Mary and 
Margaret, emigrated to America, William intending to soon 
return for his three sons, Cornelius, William and Patrick, 
who had remained to care for the crops on the farm near 
Bandon, Ireland. While enroute, William Cohan took ill 
with ship fever .and died, May, 1847, soon after landing at 
St. Johns, New Brunswick, where he is buried, the exact 
burial cemetery being unknown. After his death the daugh- 
ters, Catherine, Mary and Margaret, then mere children, 
continued their emigration journey alone to the home id' their 
cousin, John Murphy, in Canton, Mass., where they were 
later joined by their brothels, Cornelius, William ami Patrick, 
who had also emigrated to America in the latter part of the 
year 1847. (Cornelius Murphy, Contractor, Kilton St., 

* Dorchester, Mass., Mrs. Donovan of Lynn, Mass., and Mrs 
Tirrell of Boston, Mass., are children of this cousin, John 
Murphy.)
