Re: O'Kelly family of Cascade Lodge, Lissyneillan

Matthias Kenny's wife was actually a widow and by her first marriage was the mother of the Joseph Coghlan mentioned above, who appears to have obtained a decree against his uncle Patrick O'Kelly for a debt.

O'Kelly family of Cascade Lodge, Lissyneillan

In the index to the Kilmurry Ibrickan baptismal register kept in the parish, some person or persons has written in two different colour inks above the children of William Kelly and Cath Kennedy: "Craggaknock" and "Cascade Lodge". Cath Kennedy's nephew James Griffin, born in 1870, wrote a family hist...

Minogue=Mannix=Manahan=Manihan

A recent query prompted me to return to this thread. The surname Mannix did not occur in Clare in the Tithe Applotment Books, but there were seven households in Griffith's Valuation, and then just one in 1901 and 1911, in the townland of Drummin: http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/su...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Thanks for that Bob. I have now realised that the use of niece or nephew to describe a grandchild in 1901 and 1911 was so widespread that it is not worth trying to document every occurence on this thread. However, I have just come across a literal translation of sean-athair and sean-mháthair that is...

Re: John Flanagan, born 1823

I have been researching a Malone family whose address is given on birth and marriage records as Millpark up to 1895 and I have found them in Kilkerin townland in the censuses of 1901 and 1911. While they could have moved between 1895 and 1901, I think it is more likely that Millpark is a local name ...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Maggie Jane Lynch was double counted in 1911, with her parents in Moveen West and as a "niece" with her maternal grandmother in Furroor Upper.

Re: MCNAMARA'S OF FORTVILLE, LISPUCKANE, KILMALEY

Sorry, Bob, I should have avoided the terms "senior" and "junior" when referring to a sequence of more than two generations with the same name. Let's try numbering the generations I, II and III. Edward Bennett I married Margaret McNamara. I do not know either his father's name or his date of death. ...

Have you looked for this family in Twigge's book on the MacNamara family? http://oac.ie/site/content/pedigrees-macnamara-family My understanding is that Edward Bennett senior married Margaret McNamara and they had a son Edward Bennett junior who married Catherine McMahon.

Another Sligo/Mayo example ... Bridget Kelleher was baptised in KILSHALVEY KILTURRA (Bunninadden) parish in County Sligo.
