Re: Thomas J. Madigan, Sergeant Major U.S. Army, born in Kilrush

I found a few more clues, mainly at ancestry.com: The application for our Thomas's headstone, made on 11 May 1942, almost 21 years after his death, by John Madigan, of 1062 Fillmore St., Denver, Colorado: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-994Q-YBPX?i=1307&cc=1916249&personaUrl=%2Fark%...

Re: Thomas J. Madigan, Sergeant Major U.S. Army, born in Kilrush

Some user-donated family trees at ancestry.com have confused the Thomas Madigan who died in Denver in 1921 with the son of John Madigan and Mary McDonnell who died in 1930 in the townland of Einagh in Killard parish, but adjoining Kilrush parish: !CENSUS: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/...

Re: Thomas J. Madigan, Sergeant Major U.S. Army, born in Kilrush

Great research, all. I don't know what happened Denis Keane's widow, Bridget Madigan, except that she appears to have been alive when he died in 1887, described as married, rather than widowed. However, she does not appear to be the Bridget Keane in these census returns: !CENSUS: http://www.census.n...

Jimbo, Griffith's Valuation for the Barony of Pubblebrien, including the parish of Mungret, is dated 9 Nov 1850.

Re: Fr. Patrick Quaid

Sharon You do not appear to have mentioned Fr. Ignatius Murphy's monumental three-volume History of the Diocese of Killaloe, which I think provides the best background for any study of a 19th century priest of the diocese. Other Clare priests that come to mind for their public campaigning and pastor...

Hi Sheila It was not you but the National Library who mislabelled the 1878-80 Kilballyowen microfilm!

Re: Carrigaholt registers

One small point - the microfilm containing baptisms from 19 Feb 1878 to 29 Mar 1881 and marriages from 5 Mar 1878 to 30 Apr 1881 at http:...

Re: DEENIHAN of Kilrush

Over nine years on, I stumbled across the marriages of Maurice Deenihan's parents, Thomas Denihan (son of another Maurice) and Bridget Shea, who were married first in the established church in Rathronan, County Limerick, on 28 Aug 1853 (see civil record ) and again in the Catholic church in Athea pa...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Another variant on the same theme: John Griffin was enumerated with his maternal grandparents as "Niece" in 1901 but "Nephew" in 1911. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurphy/1080464/ http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurph...

Re: Did John Clancy from Clare marry his brother's widow (1924)?

Almost 11 years on, Jim Herlihy has drawn my attention to this Clancy family again with a post in a Facebook group called "Royal Irish Constabulary1816-1922 -A forgotten Irish Police Force".

John Clancy's daughter-in-law has appeared in an online phone book since I last looked for her.

Re: John Egan (jun) of Kilrush m. 1862 Anne Kelly of Glascloon

When I started this thread almost nine years ago, I suspected that Anne Egan née Kelly was a half-sister of my GGgrandmother Mary Clancy née Galvin, whose widowed mother Mary Galvin née Conors or O'Connor married Thomas Kelly of Glascloon shortly after the death of her first husband in 1837.
