Dates: about 1800 to 1853 County Carlow - Margaret
Keaughran (aka Keoghan), born 1833 in County Carlow, arrived at Fremantle,
Western Australia, aboard the ship “Mermaid” from Portsmouth, England, on
13 May 1851; the ship carried 208 convicts and 29 pensioner guards and
their families. Edward Keaughran (born about 1800), a private in the 2nd
Royal Artillery, was a pensioner guard and his wife Eliza (born about
1801) and children Margaret, Thomas James (born 1838), Ellen Jane (born
1845) and Mary Ann (born 1847) were on the ship. Thomas James Keaughran
and brother Edward Francis (born about 1838) were probably born in Malta
when Edward and Eliza Keaughran were stationed there. Any knowledge of
Keaughran families from County Carlow would be appreciated.

McGrath. Location : Carlow, Carlow parish, Co. Carlow. Date : 1780-1850.
My name: Godfrey Duffy. Email : email@example.com
James McGrath was born in 1811 in Carlow. In 1830 he joined the 34th Foot Regiment in Milbank, Co.Kildare. At the time his occupation was recorded as blacksmith.
I would like to discover his baptism record and his parents' names?
His parents would have lived through the 1798 Rebellion and I am most interested to know if there is a detailed account of this for Carlow and if there is any folklore concerning the McGraths of Carlow?

My Great Grandfather was John Mooney b. abt 1845 and came
to the U.S. in 1867. He married Catherine Brennan b abt. 1846 and she came
to the U.S. 1866 or 1869. I can't find a record of them getting married in
Cleveland where they lived but they were married as of the 1870 Cleveland
Census and they had Maggie Brennan age 19 living with them. My
GGrandfather came back from a visit to Ireland on 9-15-1910 with John
Joseph Mooney who states that his father was James Mooney from Parknakyle
Bagnalstown. John Joseph also had a brother Thomas and a brother James who
came to the U.S. in the early 1900 hundreds. I am trying to connect my
GGrandfather with James Mooney their father. My Great Grandfather has John
Mooney and it looks like Ellizabeth Wynne on his death certificate but I
can't find any siblings.My GGrandmother has Jno Brennan as her father but
mother unknown on her death certificate. Place of birth for John Joseph
was Parknakyle abt 1881.Any help with the Mooney's from Parknakyle
Bagnalstown Carlow Ireland would be of great help. Thank you!! Regards,

Looking for relatives John W. Nolan and Mary Whelan married
Feb 5th, 1849 Roscrea, Tinryland, Carlow, Ireland. They are my Maternal Great-Grandparents. I have hit a dead end.
|Nolan / Noland||
My ancestor Pierce Noland came
from Ireland to Cecil Co. MD in 1677. He named his land in Maryland "Fethard."
I realize there is Fethard in County Tipperary and Fethard-on-Sea. I
feel that I am safe to theorize that he named his property for Fethard,
the ancient walled city of County Tipperary.
During the first week of August, my 27 yr. old married daughter and I spent two days and nights in County Carlow, the original ancestral home of the Nolan (d) family. We enjoyed our visit very much. We stayed at Green Lane Bed and Breakfast both nights. Our favorite sites were the Dolmen Stone and the Old Graves at the end of town.
We also visited both Fethards. In Fethard in County Tipperary we stayed at the Gateway Bed and Breakfast by the only surviving gate of the ancient wall. To this day, the people there will not take a funeral procession out of town in the direction that Cromwell entered their town.
I feel that Pierce Nolan(d)'s father probably had to surrender to Cromwell, and was probably one of the ones who chose Connaught over hell (the only two choices Cromwell gave them). It is said that Pierce Noland came from County Mayo to America, but I have no proof of this presently. I have many other Irish ancestors besides Nolan(d)s. Those are just my farthest back proven ones, and the only ones I am sure are from

|NOLAN||GG Grandfather Maurice Nolan emigrated to U.S. c 1854. I don't know whether he was from Carlow. Thanks,|
James Nolan b. Carlow @
1803. Brother of Edward, who was possibly older. Mother's name may
have been Mary Ann. Father's name Martin? or Patrick?
James moved to Peterborough, Ontario some time before 1829. Edward followed sometime after 1839. James later moved to Waterloo County, Ontario about 1843-4, while Edward stayed in Peterborough.

Looking for John Nolan, born April,
1857 in Cty Carlow. His father was John Nolan, b. Aug. 1822 also in Cty
Carlow. John Sr. had 4 sons, John, James, William and Michael. His
wife died when the boys were children. John Jr. came to upstate NY in
1876. His father and brothers followed and were all in NY by 1885.
So far I have had no luck finding
them in Ireland.
James NOLAN Born: c 1830 Baynalstown.
Knowing that there are lots of NOLAN descendants on
the list, I thought I'd see if anyone recognizes this information:
In the 1900 US census in Jersey City, NJ, Thomas Aughney is listed with his wife and children. Thomas was born in 1862 in Roscat, near Tullow, Co. Carlow, and came to the US in 1882. Listed with Thomas' family is ANNIE NOLAN, niece, b. Feb 1889, age 11, b. New Jersey, parents b. Ireland, attending school. Since Thomas' wife's name was Morrisy, I think that therefore Annie was probably the daughter of a sister of Thomas. He had 2 sisters that I know of, but I do not know anything beyond their baptism date; Mary Aughney, b. 1860, and Joanna, b. 1857, both in Roscat. There was a Joanna Aughney on the passenger list of the SS Batavia, arrived NY 8 July 1872, age 17, spinster, from Ireland to U.S., Steerage. Since Aughney is not a common name and the age is close, I suspect this is Thomas's sister, but I have not found any record of her in the US.
A brother of Thomas Aughney was Joseph, and I believe it was he who was listed on the passenger list of the SS Commonwealth, Queenstown to Boston, May 1902; Joseph Aughney, age 35, single, farmer, Irish, last residence Roscat, destination Madison, Wisconsin, going to MICHAEL NOLAN, 620 West Wash Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin; sponsor Uncle Mike Nolan. I did find a Michael Nolan in Madison, Wisconsin in the 1910 US census but he was a widower so no wife's name was given. The census information was that he was age 72, b. Ireland, immigrated 1864, and had children living with him - Henry T. age 24, Nellie age 21 and Elizabeth age 12, all born in Wisconsin.
I could not find him in the 1900 census. These Aughney siblings' parents were Michael Aughney & Catherine McDonald, so why was Michael NOLAN listed as Joseph's Uncle? I believe it is the same Joseph Aughney who sailed on the SS Caronia, from Queenstown, arrived New York City 27 Sep 1905, age 40, male, single, Labr., last residence Tullow, destination New York, previously in U.S.; to join Brother Thomas Aughney, 265 Monmouth St., New York [should be New Jersey].
SO. does anyone have in their records a NOLAN who married an AUGHNEY? Or does anyone recognize ANNIE NOLAN or MICHAEL NOLAN?
So many Nolan's......surely someone
can connect to mine?
Mathew Nolan was born probably in 1830's. He and his sister, Julia Mary Nolan born August 09, 1841 were both born in Tullow, County Carlow.
At some point in time prior to 1853, they were in New Jersey where Mathew married Mary Ann Norris and they had the first 3 of 7 children: Daniel, Thomas Martin, Mary Catharine, John Peter, Julia Mary, Mary Elizabeth (Mamie), and Mathew Martin.
At some point in time prior to 1861, they arrived in New Orleans where Mathew's last 4 children were born. The 1870 census does not have the first 3 children living with them (assuming they died young?).
In 1876, Julia Mary Nolan (Mathew's sister) married Michael Spellman and had 2 children (Mary Ellen and John Peter). Love how they carried names over.
Around 1872, Mathew "deserted his family" and is a brick wall at this point. Mary Ann, his wife, died the following year and the 4 children were put in an orphanage (unable to find which one at this point), but John and Julia were in the 1880 census with their aunt Julia and Uncle Michael.
Have found a Nolan relative with the old family bible, but no mention of deaths on the 3 older children, just their births. No one seems to know what happened to Mathew.
Possibility of a Miller connection in New Jersey....have 2 letters written to Julia Mary Nolan Spellman dated 1868 and 1869 that were written by a "Nellie Miller" (poss. Mary Ellen) and she mentions here brother Will and sister Abbie. They lived in Jersey City on Henderson St. and ran a boarding house.
Any help to anyone?
Searching for information re parents,
siblings of JOHN M. NOLAN, b (believe in County Carlow) between
1832-1838. Married Catherine Doran. Had two sons, James M. b 1864 and
John M. b 1865.
Family immigrated to U.S. in about 1865. Lived in Albany, NY where they had four more children, Catherine; Ellen: Helen and Dennis.
Not certain about birthplace, parents and siblings of Catherine Doran.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
My Nolan's are a brother and sister:
Julia Mary Nolan was born August 09, 1841. Her brother, Mathew Nolan was born Bet. 1834 - 1844. Family members have a Bible that gives Mathew's line, but there was no mention of Julia (found the connection through the Census when 2 of his children were living with her and her husband). No DOB or DOD is listed for him and conflict with Census and marriage date in bible puts his DOB probably in the years listed above.
Mathew married Mary Ann Norris in New Jersey and I've been unable to find them in Census there. First time I find either Mathew or Julia is in the 1870 Census of Algiers, Orleans Parish, Louisiana. They had 3 children born in NJ that I "assume" died young as I do not find them in LA and then had 4 more children in LA. In 1872, Mary died after Matthew "deserted" the family. No further information has been found on him. This information has been handed down by the family and the children were placed in an orphanage. The two oldest children are found living with Julia and her husband, Michael Spellman and listed as Niece and Nephew (Julia Mary Nolan and John Peter Nolan.) The two younger children, Mary Elizabeth (Mamie) and Mathew M. Nolan were still in an orphanage according to family, but I haven't been able to pinpoint them in the census.
What was strange in my research is that when I contacted a family member of the Mathew Nolan line, she never knew that we were related, but had "heard stories" about a "Nice Mr. Spellman" that helped her grandfather, John by giving him a job in his store and teaching him math. What puzzled me was that he was not "Uncle Michael". But stories may have gotten handed down wrong :)
I have not been able to track Julia or Mathew in passenger lists and they may have a connection to a Miller family in Jersey City, New Jersey as I have 2 letters written in 1868 and 1869 from a "Nellie Miller" who mentions her brother, Will and her sister, Abbie. I checked census for 1860 with them and around them and no Nolan's in the area, so not sure if they are related or just "good friends".
Thanks for any help,
