Migration of the Muloney family to the New World and Oceana


North America accepted thousands of Irish immigrants during the 19th century as their homeland suffered under foreign imperialistic rule. Although settlers from the early portion of the century came to North America by choice in search of land, by far the largest influx of Irish immigrants came to North America during the Great Potato Famine of the late 1840s. Many of these Irish families left the country destitute and in some cases suffering from disease.

Research of immigration and passenger lists has shown many early immigrants bearing the name Muloney: Eleanor Moloney settled in Boston, Massachusetts. in 1767; Joseph Moloney settled in Pennsylvania in 1772; Biddy, Edmund, George, James, John, Michael, and Patrick Molony all arrived in Canada in 1847.
