In the Monameagh, Cashel parish in 1827, a Thomas Heade and Mary farmed a 1a 0r 0p plot owned by Lady Caroline Damer while a son, Thos Hayde and Catherine Cuddihy farmed a very small plot owned by Lord Portlington.

Thomas and Catherine married in 1821 and had at least 6 children in the 1820s and 1830s.

By 1850 Thomas appears to have died and his wife Catherine was farming 1a 1 r 23p on land owned by Thomas Dwyer (who was the major landowner in Monameagh at this time).

One of their sons, Patrick Joseph born 1826, immigrated to America in 1849.  He married Bridget Barry in New York in 1851.  He served in the Engineers during the civil wars. In 1880, they were in Missouri.  His descendants are in Kansas City, California and Canada.

Monameagh is just south of Dually where Trees # 1, 9 and 10 can be traced back to.  It can only be speculated when the family moved south to this area.
