this photo allows. :0)

2nd at At Tinlough-It is hard to imagine how this cottage was habitable before they made it into an
animal shed years ago. Try to imagine a wee thatched roof and no metal porch on it. This is the home
where Catherine Power Costello (Nicholas’s sister) raised her children with Thomas Costelloe until at
least 1884. The field around it is still called Kittie’s field, and it is about 100 yds down the dirt road to
the larger Powerscompound (ALL Powers are gone from there now) and next door, the Kinsella-Walsh
home in Tinlough. Around the corner at bit is Grannyknock where Daniel’s (potential) brother James
Power resided.

Across the street from that is Granny ferry and Granny castle, which rests on the shore of the River Suir.
Across the River Suir is the great City of Waterford, Waterford County.

Two of James Power’s children (Alice and Peter) share their Oakland CA grave at St Mary’s with Nicholas
Power and his baby brother Peter Power.


The Blue are Catherine’s children, note the Peter Powers sponsor. Anastasia was born around 1884 ish.
She is not on the list however and neither is Mary the eldest of Josephine, who until we found James
believed to be the youngest of Catherine's kids. Josephine Costelloe Risher is Raymond Risher's Mom or
grandma. I think it is Mom though. 

Now lets complicate matters a bit in as much as Rischers come from none other than Yuba County!
