BEGLEY Family History

This interesting and unusual surname is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicization of the Gaelic "O Beaglaoich", meaning "descendant of Beaglaoch", a person name composed of the elements "beag", small, and "laoch", hero. This is the name of Co. Donegal sept located in the barony of Kilmacrenan, where its present day representatives are still to be found. The placename Tulloghobegley, a parish in the barony of Kilmacrenan, perpetuates their association with that area.

    Hello all, my great-grandmother was Annie Begley. She was born in Ahgloragh and moved to the U.S. as a young woman where she met my great-grandfather. Sadly she died in the 60's so never met her.

    I did meet her brother Peter, known to us as "Uncle Pete" when he visited America. I have only very vague memory of this meeting, just "the nice old man in the suit".?????? ???????I just finally found where Ahgloragh actually is, for some reason I couldn't find it and thought perhaps Grandma had the town name wrong. Turns out she was right. Anyhow, it feels great to finally be able to pinpoint where my great-grandmother came from!?????
