Subject: Thomas ROOHAN, Patrick KNOX
Surnames: ROOHAN. KNOX
Query: I am doing research on my paternal famalies, Rohan and Knox, I have copies of some birth/marriage cerificates for the ROOHAN and KNOX famalies in Tullahought and Ballnacrony. Neither of these names appear in anything I have been able to find other than in the Griffiths Valuation for Thomas ROOHAN and Michael KNOX. Any idea how these famalies found themselves in these areas? Knox is a Scottish name and I ma wondering if they were "planted" in Kilkenny or the name Knox is some Anglocized spelling of an old celtic surname. ROOHAN or ROHAN or ROUGHAN is not a common name in the area and was wondering if they were also long term tenants in the area. Thank you for your cooperation, Jack Rohan.

Query: Hi, here is Elaina from Australia. My maternal grandmother ELLEN DILLON b1875?. Lived 12 Devitt Villas Glasthule, Co. Dublin. Died 23/4/1939 (64y), Buried Deansgrange Cemetery, Blackrock. Parents name given as WILLIAM DILLON & ANNE DUNNE. I know ELLEN DILLON married DENIS MACHAEL FLYNN (B 3/10/1873) on 27/6/1900 at St. Michael's Church, Dunlaoghaire, Dublin. Denis died 3/3/1947.
I know ELLEN had a older sister Anne.
Just found an entry at LDS for ANNE DILLON b 15/12/1871 Ireland. F. WILLIAM DILLON, M. ANNE DUNNING! at Urlingford, Co. Kilkenny. Could this be ELLEN's sister.
Would you have any more details on WILLIAM DILLON and ANNE DUNN/DUNNING. Was the younger ELLEN also born at Urlingford? Maybe the family moved on if they are not buried locally. I know ELLEN'S husband DENIS MICHAEL FLYNN was born at Rathfrum, Co. Wicklow. His father EDMUND FLYNN/FLINN b 1835 was with the RIC and was posted to a lot of different areas. It may be a longshot. Can you help? Cheers from Elaina.

Name: Carly
Subject: Edmund WHELAN, 1880, Jamestown Osary
Surnames: WHELAN , PHELAN
Query: Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to you for help with a long-standing family mystery. I am currently tracing my family tree and have stumbled across some information about my great-grandfather which I would like to either verify or dismiss. My great grandfather's name, whilst living in Kilkenny was Edmund Whelan but when he moved to England he changed it to Edward Phelan and I would like to know why. At that time, circa 1912 I believe they was conflict between those who wanted to remain part of the United Kingdom and those who wanted to be independent.
According to the family history there was some sort of serious altercation between my great grandfather and another person which was why he escaped Ireland, moved to England and changed his name. He also told his children and grandchildren (my mother) never to return to Ireland.
Rumour has it that this event was published in the Kilkenny People at that time. His parents I believe were Daniel Whelan and Joanna Larkin and he married Margaret Drea, originally from Kilkenny, in London in 1919.
I understand that you are extremely busy, but any help you can give me on this story would be greatly appreciated as the only family member who claimed to know the answer to the mystery recently passed away. Kind regards, Carly Davies

Surnames: RYAN,CONWAY, MAHER
Query: Johanna Ryan Conway is my maternal great-grandmother.I am not sure, but I have found information that seems to indicate that she was baptized at Kilmakow Parish,Sept. 17, 1872. She may have been born on Sept. 16, 1872 in Gaulstown, Kilkenny. The family lost her when she left Brooklyn New York around 1907 to return to Ireland to search for her husband, John Conway. Besides my grandmother, Mary Ann Conway (born 1892), Johanna and John left two other children behind: John and Kathleen. All three children were born in Brooklyn. Neither Johanna Ryan Conway or John Conway were ever heard from again. Would you have any information as to Johanna or her husband John Conway? Perhaps a death record? Did they have any children after she returned to Ireland? Thank you so much for your help.

Query: John and his wife Rosannah had 3 children whilst still in Ireland. James, b 1816, Mary,b 1822, Patrick, b 1829.(all approximate) John was born about 1781 and Rosannah about 1890 They left Ireland for England sometime between 1829 + 1834 where thier 4th child Edward was born, in Birmingham. Thier surname is something of a puzzle as Edward was baptised Edward Neal, by the 1841 census they were now known as ONeil, then in 1851 it was O'Neill. Not sure, but as later marriage certificates show "X - thier mark", they could not read or write and any accent they may have had, may have been misunderstood. I wish to know, if possible, where they came from in KilKenny, place of birth given by Patrick in a later Census Return.

I believe they had at least 4 sons: Thomas, John, David and James. Except for John I know they all emigrated to Ohio, USA, between 1840- 1860, because I have burial info, & also all were listed in Ohio census data as being born in Ireland. If anyone is researching this family or has information on what locals might have been responding to to go to Ohio during that period, I'd love to hear from them. Also if anyone has the names of the parents of Lawrence or Bridget, or the name of the ship they traveled over on.

Query: Pierce Collits was transported to Australia in 1801, having been sentences in London in 1800. According to colonial records, he was born in Thomastown, Kilkenny. There seems to be no record of his birth, or his parents, same for his wife Mary Hardwick. I notice that a search of Collits on this site gives no results. I would expect there to have been other family, perhaps there has been a spelling/transcription error in his name?
Any information you could provide or suggest would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance
