From Jim Heaney's family history

Mary Mccaffrey immigrated from county Fermangh in Ireland in 1869. He ended up in Southold as a farmhand. He met a woman named Mary Kane. Mary's last name was originally spelled CAINE.

Barney didn't plan to farm for someone else: his life, solely rented a few acres near bridge lane in East Cutchogue. He'd work in his job and in the evening, he worked on his rented acres until dark. 1872 he married Mary Kane. I actually bought the farm he was renting, built a home and he and Mary settled down to raise their family.

They were to eventually have nine children - five boys and four girls. All reach maturity but Jim, the third son, died at age 29 from a brain tumor. He left a widow, Nellie, and a son also named Jim.

April 1892, Mary Mccaffrey gave birth to her youngest daughter Julia. Their firstborn had been john in 1874. In june, Mary was stricken with appendicitis. The doctors knew what it was but they didn't know what to do about it. There were only a few specialists in the country who had performed the operation, but none in the area.

She suffered until her appendix burst. Peritonitis set in and she died from the poisoning. Her baby, Julia, was only six weeks old. Ironically, 10 years later her daughter Mary, had the same affliction but more surgeons had learned the simple operation and she was saved.

Barre was fortunate that he had a lovely ambitious and responsible daughter, Maggie who was 16 years old. Besides Julia there was also Kate, and Tom so they had three little ones to worry about. But he stayed at home until she was 29 before marrying Jim Lenihan, another Irish immigrant.

Julia Heaney often said that she would ask her father if she could do something, only to have him say ask Maggie. Barney was to live another 40 years, being 88 when he died. Of all his children only Julia live that long. Older all of his sons left except Hugh, who ran the farm. Hugh never married. It had married and stayed home to be a homemaker for her father and Hugh. Her husband was Tom Shalvey.
