Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Enjoy your well earned break. Thank you very much all your assistance during the search for the missing Thomas McNamara of Glandree. And especially for all your hard work with the transcriptions of so many parish baptism records. I've also taken a break from Irish records, and have spent ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, I suspect that you caught the error in my last posting, but were too polite to say anything. The first sentence stated "if Johanna Walsh Harrison were to remarry." Johanna Walsh Harrison is third person singular. Thus, I need to go back and edit this sentence to read "if Johanna Walsh Har...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, According to the 1856 will of John Harrison, if Johanna Walsh Harrison was to remarry, a £20 I.O.U. along with £60 would be provided to Johanna. I agree that this £20 I.O.U. appears to have been a dowry provided by Johanna's mother to John Harrison upon their marriage in 1853. So in 1853 ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thanks! The 1856 will of John Harrison was not only long and complicated but rather creepy. He wanted to completely control his wife Johanna Walsh after his death. She had to reside in the same dwelling house with his beloved sister Mary Balton, and "in case they cannot agree or be peacea...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thanks for sharing your research on James W. Halpin baptized on 27 December 1861 in Tulla Parish. I had also been researching this same James Halpin; his three passport applications with a link to Tulla kept popping up when researching the Halpin family. The Michael McNamara who was his b...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thank you for the snippets of information from the article "William Mills and Marcus Molony, Sons of James Molony of Kiltannon” by Jane Halloran Ryan from The Other Clare (Vol. 43, 2019). The tombs of all three Molony men are at the Tulla Parish church as documented by "Association for th...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Yes, you are correct about the William Halpin married to Margaret Russell in 1861, being the son of James Halpin "of Kiltannon" and Anne McInerney. As I mentioned previously, I had done quite a bit of research on this family, but who the next generation married, such as the eight children...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thank you for sharing your research on John Halpin and Eliza Mealy of Quingardens. Their eldest son, James Halpin (1864) was the informant on the death record for mother Eliza (Mealey) Halpin in 1891. He was gone by the 1901 census. Never in a million of years would I have thought to look...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thanks for another posting that has required me to again revisit my scribbled notes that make little sense one or two years later. The forum link you provided was not very informative and referred to "some old post". Perhaps there was another discussion on a different genealogy forum that...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thanks again for the information on the Halpin marriages from the 20th century, that was all new information for me. Over a year ago I had researched this Halpin family and came to the same conclusion that the wife of William Halpin was recorded in the Tulla baptism records as both Bridge...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thank you for discovering the 1905 and 1908 marriage records with the Rev. James Halpin officiating. Yes, I agree, that the Halpins of Kilduff appear to be related to the Rev. James Halpin. And most likely to Margaret Halpin who married Michael McNamara in 1853 as well as Anne Halpin who ...

Hi Sheila, After having a thorough read of this thread from the beginning, I discovered information on the Edmond Considine that you are interested to know more about: I am intrigued by Edmond P. Considine, who seems to be occupying a house with John Considine in High Street (the Tobacconist and New...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila and Meredith, In reviewing prior research, especially research that had been completed years ago, I always find new clues that I missed the first time around. At the start of the search for the missing Thomas McNamara of Glandree, I didn't appreciate the importance of social class in Irela...

Hi Sheila, Thanks for updating the discussion of the McNamara's of Laharden from pages 13 and 19, including the discovery of Andrew McNmara as the "owner" of a small house in Knockducunna townland per the House and Building Return (Form B1) on the 1901 census. I see that for Laharden townland, House...
