During the Cuban War for Independence, the USS Maine had been sent to Havana to look out for the interests of the United States. On February 15, 1898, at approximately 21:40, an explosion on USS Maine was caused by roughly 5 long tons of powder. The front of the ship was demolished and the remains quickly sunk to the bottom of the ocean. 260 men lost their lives in the explosion itself, with at least six more dying afterwards from related injuries. The event kicked off an atmosphere of contention that would eventually lead to the Spanish-American War.

Irish: variant of Mulroy .

History: Scottish bearers of this name are descended from Donald O’Kane, who in the 11th century migrated from the mouth of the Roe to Ferrindonald in Cromarty, Scotland. There his descendants, as barons of Foulis and vassals of the earls of Ross, held lands along the Firth of Cromarty. James Monroe (1758–1831), 5th president of the US (1817–25), came from a cadet branch of this family.
