I am a descendant of John Thomas Keegan and have recently returned from Ireland. Came up with a blank at Longford re Thomas / Catherine and our ancestor the Convict Edward. I did find the location of Ballymakeegan at Longford where in the Griffiths
Valuation a Patrick Ward is listed as a land renter, but no Keegans.
Cheers Col Keegan
