Am looking for information on James LANIGAN, my great great grandfather
who was born in Ireland in 1814 and came to Canada during the Famine.
He may have been born in Kilkenny. The Canadian census only says that
he was born in Ireland. His trade was "tailor." He died in 1879 in
Hastings County, Ontario in the town of Stirling at the age of 65. His
wife, Elizabeth McIninch, came on a ship from Bushmills, Co.Antrim but I
believe they met in Canada. I'd appreciate it if anyone knows of a
James Lanigan born at that time in Kilkenny. Thanks.

GRANT family in co Kilkenny
I would be interested to hear from anyone researching the GRANT family
in Kilkenny. The GRANT's are all descended from a Norman knight who
landed there in 1169. There were three GRANT families in IVERK BARONY in
southern Kilkenny, until Cromwell confiscated their land in 1660. Some
fled to France, some to Tipperary, but most remained in Co Kilkenny.
Even today most GRANTs in the Irish phone book are in the Iverk area.

James COSTELLO(E) and his wife Margaret returned to
Ireland from the USA between 1910 and 1913. James had a sister, Julia, who
married Michael BARRETT (from Kilkenny). Julia and Michael are my great
grandparents. I know that James & Julia's parents were both named COSTELLO(E)
but can't find the names right now so will add. Michael BARRETT's parents
were Patrick BARRETT and Margaret FITZGERALD. All were from Ballymahon? or as
someone wrote here, Ballymountain?? Both Michael BARRETT and James
COSTELLO(E) were in California (1860 census) before their wives. I do not
have any data on where they married. If anyone knows of COSTELLO(E)s or
BARRETTs etc. would be most appreciative of information. There were also some
BARRETT relatives who went to Chicago but have not tried to trace that avenue
yet. Also, the name CARROLL appears but do not know the connection yet.
Thanks for taking the time to read and possibly answer my query.
