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

Hi Jimbo, again Writing about the visit of Cochise to Camp Bowie on May 13, 1868, you quote from the account given by Douglas C. McChristian (2005): leading a party of approximately fifty warriors, he swept down on the herd grazing a mile or two from the post. However, he was unaware that the soldie...

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

Hi Jimbo Don’t be troubled! Remember I said some people consider it an insult - not everybody by any means – certainly not – maybe not even most people – it’s just something I’m conscious of when I’m in a graveyard. Your post is very interesting. I don’t think I ever saw The Battle at Apache Pass . ...

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

Hi Sharon Thank you for keeping Thomas McNamara in mind while going through the very tiresome business of moving house, and for posting that extra information you found. Hi Jimbo Thanks to your discovery of Michael W. Stackpool in San Francisco and your subsequent postings, I have been prompted to l...

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

Hi Jimbo This morning I located the assembly place of the Fenians in Drumcliff Townland. It was the mention of Ballyallia lake in Edmund Lenihan’s piece that prompted me. It led me to look again at that article by Eva Ó Cathaoir and Mathún Mac Fheoris in Clare History and Society , and I noted this ...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you again. Like you, I will put last things first: I notice that the cemetery in the photo is a lawn cemetery – so very much safer than most graveyards in Ireland where every grave is surrounded by a kerbstone, making it necessary to watch your step every minute. For that reason I thi...

Hi Jimbo In Peasants into patriots: instruments of radical politicization in Clare 1800-1907 , by Caroline Maguire (2011) - pages 135 – 136: https://dspace.mic.ul.ie/handle/10395/1024, there’s a mention of Constable Thomas Hogan (footnote 42: Local Studies Ennis, Irish Folklore Commission, Schools C...

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

Hi Jimbo Here are three newspaper reports that I transcribed but did not post on the topic of “Six Co. Clare Fenians (I.R.B.) remembered by John Devoy.” The first two were quite relevant and it may be that I just overlooked them at the time. The last one probably did not seem relevant at the time: s...

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

Hi Jimbo You have done a lot of work on John Maguire, who, at age 19, seems to have been a well known member of I.R.B. in Ennis. Eva Ó Cathaoir’s biographical note on Cornelius Hassett says, “… had been reported on 6 March 1867 by the constabulary as constantly in the company of suspects John Maguir...

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

Hi Sharon Thank you very much for that help. So Col. John Healy and Thomas Healy are not one and the same, as I had imagined. They both happen to be from New Haven – that’s all. I did a brief search for Col. John Healy and found this piece, which mentions that he came to Ireland in connection with t...

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

Hi Jimbo I looked again at the transcriptions from the Clare Journal reports on the Fenian Risings in Clare (“Six Co. Clare Fenians (I.R.B.) remembered by John Devoy,” page two: http://www.ourlibrary.ca/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7027&sid=ad0609e269fb5c69787fbc1e0fe734be&start=15)) and see that I in...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you very much indeed for doing all that work on Thomas Hogan, and for confirming that Thomas was his first name (not Patrick). I’ve edited my transcription of the Clare Journal report to show that his name was Thomas. I agree that Thomas probably went to America with John Maguire – li...

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

Hi Jimbo Good work there finding the “Irish-American Judge” and finding that 1886 newspaper article. I feel sure you are right in thinking he was Judge Michael Cooney and that the writer of the article was either Cooney, or Michel Stackpool. It is also possible, I suppose, that it was someone who wa...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you very much indeed for researching Robert Quinn and Richard Meade and for finding that they were not drummed out of the army – though it sounds like Robert Quinn might have been happy to be drummed out. I found the death of a Richard Meade, but think he is too old to have been one o...

Re: Surnames in Irish in 1911

Thank you for that interesting information. It confirms that I was okay opting for Murray rather than Murrihy – on that occasion at least. Thank you for your help.

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

Hi Jimbo I’ve been looking through From the Earth a Cry: The Story of John Boyle O’Reilly , by Ian Kenneally. I read it some years ago, but, as you can imagine, it is much more meaningful to me now. I was hoping for some mention of San Francisco, but found none. One thing that may interest you is th...
