Re: Non-registration of deaths

Lucille

There could be a simpler explanation they may be just misfiled or filed under a different name, we found my grandfather Christopher Gallerys death registration eventually it was simply misfiled (I dont know if you every found it)

Re: Trove Newspapers - a rich source of County Clare materia

Both Trove and the similar service Papers past http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast are fantastic resources. Paddy Waldron kindly pointed this out to me and also that the Freemans Journal in Australia reprinted entire articles from the Irish papers. It has been a great help in my rese...

Her son plays for the parish teams she goes to church there and gets the kids christened school etc there as it is just a mile outside t...

Re: Patrick Hehir of Doonsallagh

I am related to the Hehirs of Ballycorick through a Taaffe of Erinagh and Drumcanin marriage (my gt grandmother was Helena Taaffe). Her sister married a Hehir. I know one of the Taaffes lived in Miltown in the 1800s I think it was my gt grandmother;s uncle or aunt. I will have to dig out the connect...

Re: Denis Shannon, Esq. of Kildimo, Clare who died 23 March

Pete you are right it may well have been Denis of Kildimo. It is D Shannon. As his Kenny nephews in the locallty all signed I thought it was David Shannon. This may be wrong. I think that D. Is used for David. Dan. for Dan. Denis for Denis. I may be wrong. They were big into shortening type in those...

Re: Patrick Madigan, County Clare, Ireland

If you look in the tithe indexes on Clare library website there are Madigans in Kilmurry ibrickane. In Griffiths I see no Madigans in Kilmurry ibrickane but loads in kilrush. I am not convinced for a marriage in America that they had to come from neighbouring parishes. It is probable that they would...

Re: Boston Pilot - Missing Friends - Devitt & McNamara, Milt

thanks I had seen this resource before. My gt gt gt uncle James Kenny was missing and his nephew C.D. Kenny (Cornelius David) of Rochester NY and then Baltimore looked for him. The Pilot was a Catholic newspaper. From family letters sent to me by C.D Kennys grandson I know that they found James Kenn...

Re: Denis Shannon, Esq. of Kildimo, Clare who died 23 March

This is what I know about my gt gt gt gt gt grandfather David Shannon of Kildeemo (Kildimo). Its not a lot. I think he had a son called David who may be the David of Clohanes who died in 1833. Denis may be his son or the son of the other Denis. Shannon, David d. AFT 1799 (he or his son David signed ...

Paddy I think your post was uncalled for. I did not complain or comment on your use of the PM. I have shared info in the past with you. I dont really care if you want to PM. your comments on Pierce and Patrick Shannon coming from Scotland are unfounded. They came originally from West Clare to Limeri...

Women not going to funerals was correct and was not an irish or a West of Ireland thing it was also in the UK. I dont know if you saw cranfield based on the Eliza Gaskell book which one of the episodes was all about women not going to funerals and how revolutionary it was for a woman to follow her f...

Re: Denis Shannon, Esq. of Kildimo, Clare who died 23 March

Lucille I have a fair bit on the Shannons of Kildimo. Freda Shannon who is Paddy's cousin does not think they were related. However Denis is a name in her family she has a brother Denis. She told me the house the Shannons lived in - another family have it now. She said they were local landlords and ...

Re: Fr. Thomas Shannon, Clare to Philadelphia

Denis Shannon is mentioned twice in the 1807 presentments as repairing roads in the right area (near Annagh). He is also mentioned with the Mahons which could mean he is related to the Cragaknock Shannons but may not. Paddy Waldron gave me a completely unfollowable courtcase which talks about the cr...

Thanks that is interesting. There is a book of his poems in the NLI.
