Surname Saturday: Cahill (Ireland / Illinois)

This is my first Surname Saturday post, so I figured I’d start with my maiden name.  I’ll probably work in order by ahnetafel number just so I don’t lose my mind trying to remember what names I’ve done. 

My CAHILL clan hails from Thomastown, County Kilkenny, Ireland.  Michael CAHILL, my third great-grandfather, it the earliest known/proven ancestor in that line.  At least two of his children left Ireland and settled in Aurora, Kane, Illinois (one son eventually moved to Chicago, Cook, Illinois).  My direct line ancestors are in blue.
