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

On 17 July 1925, arriving in New York on the SS America from Cobh, Ireland were Michael P. Walsh (age 66), Daisy Fox Walsh (age 55) and their daughter Daisy E. Walsh (age 33). Their trip did beg the question if Margaret Walsh Duncan (1867 - 1928) was also ever able to return to Ireland to visit her ...

Re: Maiden name of Mrs Lynch, wife of P. Lynch, Editor

Hi Sheila, To add to the information provided by Sharon. Nothing new from the 1850 census, but here is the 1855 NY state census of the Patrick Lynch household. Patrick Lynch had the occupation of "editor"; his step-son, Thomas "Nehan" (age 26) was an "assistant editor". The "Nehan" step-children sho...

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

So, how was Margaret Walsh, a single 39 year old Irish immigrant, able to purchase in 1906 the Continental Hotel in Atlantic City? Did Michael P. Walsh provide assistance to his younger sister? As mentioned in last posting, Michael Walsh (born 1859) appears likely to have immigrated to America since...

The Continental Hotel, on South Tennessee avenue , with its central location near to the Pennsylvania steam and electric depots and the Reading station , and in the midst of Atlantic City's shopping and amusement district, yet but a step from the Boardwalk , has rapidly forced itself to the front a...

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

Hi Sheila, Thank you very much for letting me know that additional death records for 1871 through 1878 are now available. And also the availability of Clare newspapers in the British archive. 102 McNamara's died between 1871 and 1878 in the Galway registration district which includes Tulla parish. I...

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

There was another Edward Walsh living at the Continental Hotel on 15 Tennessee Avenue in Atlantic City in the 1910 census. This Edward Walsh was age 53, married (but not with family), born in Connecticut, both parents born in Ireland, working as a bartender at the Continental Hotel. This census reco...

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

The Edward Walsh who died in Philadelphia was baptized as Edmond Walsh in Kilnoe parish on 17 February 1873. The baptism sponsors were reported as "Ned and old Mrs. Walsh". "Ned Walsh" was likely either the child's uncle Edmond Walsh (≈1828 - 1900) or his first cousin Edmond Walsh, Jr., (1857 - 1928...

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

Captain George W. Duncan, the lighthouse keeper at New Castle in Delaware Bay, was the likely source of the below article in the Wilmington Delaware newspaper that tells the story of another brother of Margaret Walsh Duncan: There comes a somewhat peculiar story from Atlantic City. It is to the effe...

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

Captain George W. Duncan, the father-in-law of Margaret Walsh Duncan, was a lighthouse keeper at New Castle in Delaware Bay. His parents were Irish born and he seemed particularly fond of Margaret Walsh as well as her Irish relatives who would often stay at the lighthouse. And Captain and Mrs. Georg...

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...
