O'SHANNON
I am researching O'SHANNON from somewhere in Carlow up to mid 1840s or 50s.
Joan
O'NEILL I am trying to find out information about Martin and Catherine O'Neill. They lived in Co. Carlow in the late 1800's, and had many children. If anyone has any information, I would love to hear from you! Thanks in advance! Beverly Sinclair
O'NEILL
I am wondering if any of you listers out there can help me.
My g-g grandfather's name was Patrick O'Neil(l). The information that I have says that he was born in 1832 in "Carlow, Ireland." (Whether this is a reference to the city of Carlow or the county, I have no way of knowing.) Patrick had at least one other sibling. His name was Henry, and he was born in December of 1834. I am almost positive that Patrick & Henry's parents' names were John & Catherine O'Neil(l).
What I am interested in is information about any of the above-mentioned individuals (e.g. where in County Carlow they were from, who their siblings were, who their ancestors were, etc.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Mark O'Neill

O'Connor
Seeking info on John O'Connor and his wife Bridget Doyle from Clonmore Parish, Ballyduff, County Carlow. Bridget was born @ 1820 and she and her children (without John) ended up in Portland ME on May 22, 1873. Bridget and John's children included Patrick, Henry, Catherine, Edward (his name changed to Connor) who remained in Portland, and Michael, James, Timothy and John who moved to the Boston area. Bridget's sister, Catherine, also emigrated to Portland and married a Mr. Melaugh.

Catharine O'Neill.)

PAYNE/PAINE /
TYNDALL
Looking for Irish Quaker family of MARGARET PAYNE (b.c. 1789), who married Thomas George HARRIS and emigrated from County Carlow to central Wisconsin USA in 1840s. Family tradition posits a connection to COMMON SENSE author Thomas Paine but I have never been able to confirm that. She was cousin to the TYNDALLs.
Richard Harris
Pollard
George Pollard my GGF came from Hackettstown Carlow. Likely from the Parish not the town. I have lots of info on the family after arriving in Canada. His father was Henry ( died in Ireland ) mother Ann maiden name ? Hegerty or Willoughby. She Died in Canada 1863. George had sibs Frances, Jane, Ann, William, Mary Elizabeth. All came to Canada prior to 1850 living first in Hamilton On. and then moving to Logan Twp. Perth Co.On. There was also a brother John. I would like to find out what townland they came from and any other info anyone can share
Yvonne & John Irvine
Pollard We are pursuing the family of Henry Pollard (b. bef. 1807) and Ann Willoughby (b. abt. 1788). Their children were Frances (b. abt. 1824), Jane (b. abt. 1826), George (b. abt. 1828), William (b. abt. 1830), Elizabeth (b. abt. 1833) and John (b. abt. 1836). Elizabeth was born in County Carlow, Ireland and reason to believe they all came from Hacketstown, Co. Carlow. With exception of the patriarch, Henry, the family emigrated to Canada about 1850 and settled in Perth Cty., Ontario, Canada. Would like any information to confirm the location in County Carlow that the family came from.

PATCHELL
Some details :
My paternal grandmother was Ellen Patchell. She died in Cork on 7 January 1937.
I think that she was about 66/70 years old, so probably born around 1867/1871. I am not sure if she herself was from Carlow, but I am sure her father was. Her father was John Patchell, died in Cork on 17 March 1890, aged 50, so born about 1840. He was a railway station master in Little Island, Cork. They were of the Church of Ireland. 
I would love to find some trace of them in Carlow, and would really appreciate if anybody there can help me.
 
Thank you,

Prendergast
Catherine Prendergast my Great, Great Grandmother married one Patrick Shannon and ended up in County Clare? I have no idea why or how Patrick and Catherine met? I'm working on the Pennsylvania records now. James Prendergast who came over to Pennsylvania in the late 1800's is buried at a very old cemetery up on a hill in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. His stone is gone, so I'm going to PA in June and having another one put up in Memory of him (have no idea where he's buried there). I know Catherine lived to be quite old and fell at a 4th of July party and broke her leg and died soon afterwards. James her father lived to be 100 years of age.

QUINN Several Quinn's from Borris, Carlow emigrated to Canada, and settled in the St. Anicet area near Three Rivers, Quebec. The emigration appears to have been in concert with emigration to the same area by a family from Borris named Curren (Currin, Curran). James Curren was Godfather to Peter Quinn, and he (or possibly a son) died in St. Anicet in 1878, aged 80 years. I believe all of these people emigrated between 1820 and 1830:

Peter Quinn, Michael Quinn, John Quinn, Thomas Quinn James Curren Hugh Curren William Curren J Curren (may be James or another)

The Quinns came from the Ballinagree area of Borris, Carlow, and I believe the Currens also lived in the RC parish of Borris.

This is a follow up to the Mary Quinn Doyle posting re Quinn, continuing Research on Quinns in the Ballinagree area of Borris.

Peter Quinn was baptized 12/1810 in RC Church, Borris, the son of Terence Quinn and Mary Byrne. His brother Michael was baptized there in 1813. John Quinn was baptized in 1812, the son of Paul Quinn and Catherine (maiden name unknown). The other Quinns noted in Mary's posting may have been cousins or brothers.

In 1825. Terence, Paul and Michael Quinn are listed (in the Tithes Applottment) as farming in Borris. However, by 1857 (In Griffiths Valuation), the only remaining Quinn is Paul, and it appears that the three farms had been consolidated into one holding. At that time, the land was being leased to them by Kavanaugh, but it later passed into possession of John Neill, and is now largely owned by his son Arthur.

Several Quinn's emigrated to Canada, and settled in the St. Anicet area near Three Rivers, Quebec. The emigration appears to have been in concert with emigration to the same area by a family from Borris named Curren (Currin, Curran). James Curren was Godfather to Peter Quinn, and he (or possibly a son) died in St. Anicet in 1878, aged 80 years. I believe all of these people emigrated between 1820 and 1830.

If anyone has any additional information on either of these families, I would love to hear from you.

QUINN

 

Terence Quinn and Mary Burn (Byrne) were Roman Catholics. I believe that they had five sons (Peter. Michael, Thomas, Terence, John) who would have been born approximately around the 1800-1820 timeframe in County Carlow. All these sons eventually ended up in the Saint-Anicet
area of Quebec, Canada. Their estimated time of arrival in Quebec began as early as 1832 in the land records that I was able to locate. My great-grandfather, Peter Quinn, the son of Terence Quinn and
Mary Burn (Byrne), was born in County Carlow around 1810-1811. He was married in Quebec in 1846. On his marriage certificate it stated that both of his parents, Terence Quinn and Mary Burn, were deceased by the time of his marriage in 1846. Can anyone please suggest any advice for
me about how I could proceed to find out where in County Carlow these Quinns were from? So many people have told me that "Quinn" is such a common name but I haven't been able to locate anyone researching Quinns in County Carlow. Are there any Quinns out there or anyone interested in Quinns????? I would love to hear from you! Thanks. Mary Quinn Doyle bdoyle@psouth.ne

Rigney
Researching the Rigney family of Bagenalstown and the Barry family of Corries. Denis Barry married Mary Barry in January, 1822. At least two of their children immigrated to Chicago, Illinois in the 1850s. One of their descendants and my uncle, John Dungan Rigney, pitched for the Chicago White Sox in the 1940s.

Roach
I'm splashing around in the same pond in the same time period. My interest is Eamon (Edmund/Edward) Roach b. 23 12 1795 in Borris to James Roach and Mary Fogarty. But, in tracking him, I have come up with limited info on Doyle and Doran. Some of these people ended up in NF and their descendants migrated to the US.  John Roche of Knockroe? m Mary Maher of Rahanna 10 2 1825. Witnesses were Edward (Ned) Clooney & MARY DORAN (Philip Doran's wife???). There were several Morans - could they be Dorans??? Poor handwriting??? Bridget. James, etc.  In any event, an Edward Roche m Bridget M(D)oran 16 11 1797. Witnesses were James M(D)oran and James Carty.  One of their children Margaret Roche bapt. 2 4 1803 and sponsored by Bryan Cannon & Judith DOYLE.  Those families are all in a muddle...lots of intermarriage.

Rice  / Nolan
From your extract on Tullow st you say that nanny Nolans brother left his diaries of the Boer war. My grandfather William Rice served in the Boer War I wonder if he was ever mentioned in these diaries. He was from Carlow . It is said that he took part in a ? military propaganda film during the Boer war where he "wore a bandage and used crutches to limp across a field. Part of the "fee" for doing this was a "slap up meal" If you have any information at all I would be truly grateful
Many thanks

ROACH / FOGARTY

1. JAMES ROACH b Borris, Co. Carlow, died in Borris, Co. Carlow. He m MARY FOGARTY b Borris, Co. Carlow, d Borris, Co. Carlow.

Parents: James Roache and Mary Fogarty - Children:
1. Patt b 21 7 1786 - Sponsors Edmond Phelan (Whelan) and Catherine Dwyer.
2. Edmond (twin) b 18 4 1788 - Sponsors Richard Butler and Mary Dowling.
3. Philip (twin) b 18 4 1788 - Sponsors James Butler and Elinor Byrne.
4. James b 20 7 1789 - Sponsors James Byrne and Mary Rute (likely Rupe).
5. Margaret b 22 5 1793 - Sponsors John Byrne and Bridget Neill (without an O)
6. Edmond b 23 12 1795 - Sponsors Thomas Evans (possibly Evers) and Mary Murphy (usually when two infants have the same name, the eldest has died).
7. Thomas b 14 12 1802 - Sponsors Matthew Owens and Anne Roache
(6) EDWARD F ROACH, b. 23 Dec 1795, St.Mary's/St. Mullins, Borris, Co. Carlow; d. 10 Feb 1879, St. John's, NF - aged 85, after 56 years in NF, 45 in government service (Source: St. John's Gazette).
He May HAVE married (1) MARGARET BYRNE Abt. 1813 in St. Mary's/St. Mullins, Cos Carlow & Wexford. Secondly, he did marry (2) CATHERINE MAHER 07 Feb 1829 , RC Basilica, St. John's, NF. She was born abt. 1805, Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary, and died 04 May 1885 in St. John's, NF.
The name may also have been rendered Eamon Roch, but both the Carlow Genealogy Centre and a private researcher spelled it (Anglicized) as Edmond/Edward Roach, baptized 22 or 23 Dec, 1795 in Borris, Co Carlow.
Edward arrived in NF in 1823. We have now located a family there and it is possible he may have been married (three children) before coming to NF (a widower). The specific information on his possible family in Borris/St.Mullin's/St. Mary's - where the Diocese of Leighlan-Kildare spans the borders of both Counties:
Edward Roach m. Margaret Byrne (related to Elinor, James or John Byrne [sponsors] above?). Children:
1. Mary Ann bapt 2 June 1814 - Sp: Patrick Mullow(n)ey & Bridget Garvy
2. John born 13 January - bapt 22 Jan 1817 - Sp: Joanna Byrne & Mary Roache
3. Ann bapt 28 June 1821...AND here the records end!!!
Was this a first marriage for Edward? While Borris-St Mullins-St Mary's overlap Carlow/Wexford in the Diocese (Leighlin-Kildare), they are missing records 1810-12 and 1814-20. Parish boundaries have blurred with the passage of time and now seem to include St Mary's as part of St Mullin's Parish as well. In Film 4169 of the NLI for Borris, there is a gap from 1814-25 for St. Mullins.
In NF, (widowed or not) Edward F. Roach, Borris, Co. Carlow & Catherine Maher, Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary m. 7 Feb 1829 Wit: William Quinn & Mary Allen --- Children:
a. Mary Roach (c. 16 Jan 1830) Sp: Edmond Doheny & Catherine Daley RCBSJ
b. Catherine (c. 22 Sep 1831) Sp: Thomas Maher & Margaret Roach RCBSJ
c. Bridget (c. 29 Jan 1834) Sp: Edward Foote/Toole (?) & Ellen Mara RCBSJ
d. Margaret (c. 19 mar 1837) Sp: Michael Flynn & Bridget Hanrahan RCBSJ
e. Patrick (c. 13 Mar 1842) Sp: James Long & Bridget Doheny RCBSJ
f. Edward (c. 16 Jan 1845) Sp: Michael Phelan (Whelan) & Mary Hanrahan RCBSJ
Edward F Roach worked for the Governors for 45 years, according to his obituary. Illiterate, but a yeoman (landowner), he did well to get the job of gate keeper - security - at Government House. His Obit:
Roach, Edward, native of Co. Carlow, d. aged 85; here 56 yrs; servant of government for 45 yrs; at res. 97 King's Rd., St John's. Feb 18/79E
The male line has died out in NF and Canada - over a few generations. The question is, did any of the brothers - there or elsewhere in the world - produce sons (with males still among us) - of that or those two lines? That would be:
1. Patt b 21 7 1786 - Sponsors Edmond Phelan (Whelan) and Catherine Dwyer.
3. Philip (twin) b 18 4 1788 - Sponsors James Butler and Elinor Byrne.
4. James b 20 7 1789 - Sponsors James Byrne and Mary Rute (likely Rupe?).
7. Thomas b 14 12 1802 - Sponsors Matthew Owens and Anne Roache
and, if Edward m. Margaret Byrne - does John have surviving offspring - 2. John b 13 January - bapt 22 Jan 1817 - Sp: Joanna Byrne & Mary Roache ?
Fingers crossed. Happy hunting :-)

RUSSELL
Elizabeth RUSSELL born abt 1805 married 11 Oct Dublin, Ireland to Charles BAILE b 1803.  Charles was Coachman in the household of Elizabeth's father and he disinherited her.  A number of attempts to find Elizabeth's ancestors have ended in failure.  The family tale said that he was a "Lord" Russell which I suspect is embroidery of the passing years but it may have hampered the efforts to find him.  
I would expect that he was a landlord of sufficient means to hire a Coachman.  I would guess that in hiring a Coachman, Russell senior would not have gone far, including the possibility of the son of one of his own tenants.  Charles BAILE'S father, William BAILE was born in 1763 in Laney, Co Carlow, and died 1848 in Clonegal, Ireland.  I have only Fidelia for his mother's name, no surname.  Charles had siblings as follows:
James b abt 1792
John b abt 1793
Thomas b abt 1794
George b abt 1796
Benjamin b 16 Mar 1797 Clonegal, Co Carlow, d 12 Mar 1885 Junetown, Ontario, Canada
[Charles]
William b 10 May 1804
Barbara b 1807
Does anyone know a Russell family near Clonegal that might fit this description who possibly had a daughter Elizabeth,  born about 1804-1806?

Sikes / Walsh
My 3rd Great- grandparents were George Sikes/Sykes and Margaret Walsh.
George Sikes is listed in the  1788 Lucas Directory as Watchmaker, Silversmith and Ironmonger in Tullow Street, Carlow.
His eldest son, John Sikes married Frances Jeffares (Co. Wexford) in 1825.
He had another son George Junior and a daughter Sarah who married Oriel Goodison.

Anyone out there with some scraps of information which would be gratefully received.

STERNE
Hi, I am researching Charles Sterne in connection with Mary Sterne as parents of Susannah Sterne of Clonegal who emigrated to Australia in 1838. It is possible/probable that Mary Sterne is nee Mary Bell of Minaughrim near Clonegal.  The Sterne families were protestant and closely associated with St. Fiaac's church in Clonegal.  I would like to find anything about Charles but particularly his marriage to Mary and probably his death between 1818 and 1838.
Many thanks for any information.

Travers
Hello everyone; the above lady Mary Ann Travers was born 1832 in Carlow.
That is all I know of her in Ireland.  She married Patrick Connolly in Sydney Australia in 1849.  They are my great grandparents.  They were living in Victoria when Patrick died but can't find anything about Mary Ann in Ireland.  Maybe she came out with the Irish Bounty girls. or better still she may have swam out from Ireland.  Does anyone know the name Travers in Carlow.  I'll be waiting.

Walsh,
Brien (O'Brien)
Right now I am beating the bushes to find out anything I can about Tullow, Carlow. Carol, do you have any BMD dates for your people? Are your folks Protestant or RC? Did they emigrate to the US, and where?  I have Michael Walsh, b. November 1871, on US documents and he may be the one listed in the GRO from Tullow, Carlow. At least he is the only one who has the right parents in the right time frame. Parents: Patrick Walsh and Bridget Brien [O'Brien]. He immigrated to the US in 1890. Joined my grandfather, James Rattigan, in his small business of paving the streets with cobblestones in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey. Was one of two boarders in my grandparents' household.  And when Jim Rattigan suffered a long, agonizing illness his friend and crew member Michael Walsh stepped in to help raise the 3 [surviving] Rattigan children. A year after the funeral, he and my grandmother married. He was the only father Jim Rattigan's children remembered.  This Michael Walsh also has the traditional Irish Naming Pattern for three generations: his father was Patrick. He is a Michael. His only child with my grandmother was also a Patrick. This Michael Walsh was an important member of our family.  I haven't even mentioned that my grandmother's maiden name was Sarah Walsh from Tipperary Town, County Tipperary. No blood kin to this Michael Walsh, of course. And I don't intend to tell you all the other family complications--like all the males in my grandmother's family in Tipperary Town were named "Michael Walsh." Argh-argh-ar!!! >Gr<  Any response appreciated.

WALSH/TOOLE/O'TOOLE
/PRENDERGAST
I thought I'd resubmit the following in the hope that someone may be able to help. My gt. grandmother was Margaret WALSH daughter of Edmond and Mary WALSH (nee Toole or O'Toole).
Mary and Edmond were residing at Pike which I have since learned is a pub. My gt. grandmother Margaret (their daughter) worked as a publican when she emigrated to New Zealand so I'm assuming that her parents - Edmond and Mary WALSH ran the Pike pub.
Mary had a sister Ellen TOOLE (O'TOOLE) who married Patrick Prendergast around 1830's. They had the following children that I know off - Mary (nun), Agnes (nun) Charles, Francis, Anne, Barbara. They resided at Duke St, Athy and had a saddlery business

Watchorn & Hawkin
My wife's family is descended from Watchorns and Hawkins.
Henry Watchorn born 1821 in Carlow married Nancy Taylor, born 1827 in Armagh.  They married, settled and died in Lanark County, Ontario, Canada.  Their son Albert married Catherine Ann Hawkins.  I think that her grandparents were also from Ireland.
Any connection?  I have quite a lot of information on this line.  My mother-in-law's maiden name is Watchorn.

Walsh, O'Brien
Need advice. Searching for Michael Walsh, b. November 1871. Parents: Patrick Walsh and Bridget O'Brien. Found only one Michael Walsh in the GRO in the right time frame with the right parents. From Tullow, County Carlow.
Have done more research. Civil Parish=Tullowphelim. RC Parish=Tullow. Church in town of Tullow=Most Holy Rosary.
But with such common Given and Surnames, how can I verify and cross-reference that he is mine? I have him on a few U.S. documents but none give his Place of Origin in Ireland.
When my grandmother died, this Michael Walsh just disappeared. Any ideas for further research? Or . . .. does this man fit into your family?

WALSH
Could anyone help me with the whereabouts of 'The Pike'. My gt.gt grandparents Edmund & Mary WALSH (nee (O) Toole) were married at St Johns Parish, Kilkenny 27th January 1834. The Parish Records state Husbands & Wife's residence as 'The Pike'. Looking at their children's baptisms also at St Johns Parish it give the residence at John/Upper John Street. I thought that The Pike was a pub but on reading through the Griffiths Valuation for Kilkenny there are a number of people who under Townlands share the same "The Pike". In the Griffiths Valuation it says: Edmund WALSH, Parish: Donaghmore Location: Ballyragget / The Pike.
