In the mean time, for those that don’t know me, here’s a bit — Here goes, rapid fire:

I am a weaver.
I am a genealogy researcher.
I write poems/prose.

Three of my passions are:

1) Weaving
2) Writing (various topic, styles, lengths)
3) Genealogy

Each of these interest have strong pull on my “free time”. Some how on the surface they seem separate topics – when I get involved in one, the others seem to draw me in to further research, or furthering a woven piece (by hand or on a loom).

When I can think of more detail, I will update this ‘blurb’.

Thank you, for visiting!

    • I do not have that ‘branch’ of the Turner family in my information yet — I did a quick search online and found this site:


      It shows several previous generations of this TURNER family; which may tie into one of the several (3 or 4 independent) TURNER families’ data in my family tree program.

      I hope this helps. If I find further facts, I will post a follow-up.

  2. Thank you Cathy for your illuminating site! You are the only researcher I have found who lists Mooney as a possible Jewish surname. The Mooneys are direct descendants of the Menapia Tribe – the oldest known Celtic Tribe in Europe and a branch of the Tribe of Dan/Tuatha de Danainn of early Irish History.
    The Tribe of Dan are one of the 10 Lost Tribes to be dispersed following the Assyrian Captivity. The majority of ‘Jews ‘ are descended from the Ten (Lost)Tribes and are not from the Tribe of Judah. A remnant of Judah and Benjamin remained in Judea, though some may have left subsequently, The purpose of the remnant tribes was to secure a presence of Israelites in the Land of Israel for perpetuity in keeping with God’s Covenant with Abraham, because one day God would make a way for them to return/alyah. Today, descendants from the all 12 Tribes are returning to their homeland. Finally, Gaffney is a Jewish name – in German it is Weinberger. Also, the name Dolan – as in Do – lan is rooted in Hebrew – there are some already in Israel of this name. Harlow is also Jewish in origin, All of these surnames are in my family tree.

    Keep up your ‘good work’ Cathy

    Take care, Claire/Ireland
