Name: George Bell
Subject: John Donovan, 1850, Portlaw and River Suir
Surnames: DONOVAN, CONWAY
Query: John DONOVAN, possible father of Mary Donovan and grandfather of Patrick CONWAY(d. Jan 15, 1897)of Portlaw Co. Waterford owned a pub in Waterford in his later years (died at 95). Mary Donovan (d. Oct 2, 1848) was Patrick's mother, and she married John Conway, a cooper, in Waterford. Family tradition tells that Mary's father John Donovan owned at least an interest in a fleet of freighters that plied the Suir from Carrick-on-Suir to Cobh and back. Question is, is John the freighter owner the same man as John Donovan the publican? Note that Patrick Conway emigrated to Covington Kentucky (cooper of whiskey barrels) late 1850's and returned to Portlaw as a cooper (butter firkins) before the American Civil War. In his later years, he ran a pub in Portlaw that was then operated by two daughters, Mary and Brigid Conway until the 1930's.

John emmigrated to Western New York state USA and married around 1830 wife Margaret (born in USA @ 1805). John and wife settled in Sardinia/Concord NY and raised a family. Based on this info, obtained from an 1850 USA census, I guess that John emmigrated to the US sometime between 1802 (his estimated birth year) and 1830 (his estimated marriage year). Any certain townlands, villages, or parishes known to have been the homes of Cotterel families? Any other info?? Many thanks ed

Surnames: KERR, HENDERSON
Query: Hello, Information on my KERR ancestors "fell in my lap" during the spring. Up until then we had only known the very basic information about our line of KERR man. We have since found out that four Kerr siblings migrated from Ireland to Canada around 1825. Three of them were married with children, and one married someone from Canada. They were: Mary Kerr, b.1795, Patrick Kerr, b.1797, Elizabeth Kerr, b.1801, John Kerr, b.1803. Both Mary and John had married into the Henderson family. Once settled in the Quebec Province, all four siblings had many children. We have now found out that we have "distant cousins" all over Canada. And, there were hundreds of both Kerr and Henderson families in Eastern Canada between 1800 and 1850. However, of all the people researching these families, no one can determine who the parents were of: Mary, Patrick, Elizabeth, and John. .. Recently we found a page in a booklet which stated that they had come from .. County Kenny. Obviously this is a typo. But, we don't know whether it was supposed to be .. County Kerry, or . County Kilkenny. ... We would appreciate receiving any information at all about this family.

Subject: John WHELAN, Kilkenny
Surnames: WHELAN, RYAN
Query: John WHELAN b. 1824 in Ireland, Bridget RYAN b. 1834, m 1854 Oral history says migration during potato famine. Ended up in Montcalm County MI by 1860 census. Oldest child was 5 and listed as born in MI. Bridget and John listed as born in Ireland. I think they were county Kilkenny because my great grandfather named my grandfather Kenneth, and the fact that the Whelan's and Ryan's had a significant presence there. By 1860 the farm was worth 700 and personnel property worth 230. This leads me to believe that they left earlier in the famine rather than later. The children’s names were Anne, Patrick, Mary, John, James and Ellen. The next generation used the names Kieren, and Kenneth that I can find no ties to other lineages. I would even appreciate lineages that would exclude other Kilkenny WHELAN and RYAN lines.

Subject: Thomas MOORE, 1828, Ballyhale
Surnames: MOORE
Query: Completely new to Kilkenny research, and wondering whether anyone is connected to Thomas MOORE, b.1828 (?), Ballyheal, Kilkenny. At 18 he entered the employ of the East India Company as a soldier in the 1st Madras Fusiliers, and left immediately for India on a ship called the Kent out of Waterford. He married Jane Mary Agnes Parker, had several children, rose through the ranks to Quarter Master of the 102nd Regt of Foot, and died in the Isle of Wight in 1872. Does this make any connections with anyone else's Moores in Kilkenny? I have no information whatsoever about him or his family except for his year and place of birth as stated above, taken from the passenger list of the Kent. I gather that birth records of the 1820s are not in Dublin, and may not exist at all. Can a local historian or researcher please, please, tell me what my next step might be?? Yours gratefully,

Surnames: DOYLE
Query: Catherine Doyle was born March 14, 1845. Some of my relatives mentioned Kilkenny County, Ireland At age 15 she was teaching a catechism class for her church. On their way home after class her students were often pelted with stones by soldiers. One day Katie accompanied her students after class, and her students were stoned again. "Spiritied" Katie Doyle picked up one of the stones, wrapped it in her apron and struck one of the soldiers across the back, injuring him. Back at home her family and friends, realizng her danger, secluded her until they could get her to Liverpool and on a boat to the United States. Thus the date of her migration to the States must be somewhere between 1860 when her age was 15 and 1865 when she married Thomas Egan. They were married at St. Mary's Romans Catholic Church in Sterling, Illinois.USA. The date of the marriage was June 4, 1865. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. John Daly and witnessed by John Durr and Bridget Kane. Catherine and Thomas Egan are my Great Great Grandparents. I am looking for any information on Catherine Doyle and her family in Ireland. Catherine (Katie) and her husband later moved and lived in Schuyler, Nebraska, (County of Colfax) USA. Thomas Egan was born December 25, 1844- Kilkenny? Any information on him would also be helpful.

Query: Peter DeLoughry was not an ancestor, but a cousin of my paternal grandmother.During the Irish war of independence he was in Lincoln Gaol with DeValera and other Republicans.They broke out and made their way back to Ireland. Peter was sheltered for a few days ?? by my grandparents,Charles and Katie(nee DeLoughry) Flynn in their home in Sheffield in 1922?? My father was a small boy ,but remembers the incident.My grandparents were very worried about harbouring a fugitive, perhaps even more because they were English-born,but obviously loyalty to their family and origins won out. Peter eventually became Mayor of Kilkenny?? and died around 1930?? I saw an old newspaper cutting which said something about Peter having obtained /made? a skeleton key which got them out of gaol?This is all I and my father(85 yrs. old) know about this incident, but we would be delighted if anyone could add to, or correct our understanding.

Mathias and Margaret left Ireland in about 1828. They are found in New Brunswick in 1829 and in Maine in 1830. They had two? children when they left Ireland, namely Thomas b 1824? and Catharine b 1817. Questions: I cannot find the birth/baptisms of Thomas and Catharine. Does this family fit anyone's genealogy? I am not positive that Margaret Quinn was married in Kilmacow as there seems to be no records. Anyone know of the Grants? Any records of the Whelans leaving Ireland or arriving in New Brunswich would be appreciated. Any record of this family in Maine (Bangor, Maine) would be appreciated. This man was a schoolteacher. A James Powers age 73 from Ireland in mentioned in the 1850 Wisconsin census as living with Margaret and her daughter Catharine and son-in-law Garrett Hughes. Possible children are besides Thomas and Catharine are Mary Ann b 1829 New Brunswick, Canada; Patrick Whelan b 1831?, Margaret Whelan b 1833; James Whelan b 1834, Ellen Whelan b 1838, Joan Whelan b?, John Whelan b?

He was a school teacher all his life. Are there records of school teachers in Kilkenny? Are there boat records to New Brunswick in 1829 or records of them leaving Ireland? Are Mathew Whalen and Mathias Phalen the same person? Other interesting names:The witness to the marriage of Mathias was a Richard Aylward- who is listed on the 1821 census of Mooncoin.

Her father was Lawrence and her mother was Ellen (nee) Mill. Her birth was registered in the District of Kilkenny No. 1. There were 16 children in the family, my grandmother and her sister came to Toronto, Ontario, Canada to live. Patrick went to Australia, Sheila married and became a Halpin and lived in Detroit, Mich. U.S.A. One sister became a nun. I am not sure but I am assuming quite a few of her family stayed in Ireland. Would like to hear from anyone who can give me a lead.

Query: I am looking for information on my 3rd Great-Grandfather John BYRNE born 1792-1793 who we believe was born in Thomastown, County Kilkenny. He immigrated to Holyrood, Newfoundland around 1814-1815 and married Elenor Wall of Holyrood May 13, 1821. A Peter Byrne arrived from Ireland around that time and was a witness for the wedding. We do not know if Peter was a brother or close relative. We do know that Peter had a brother Martin from an enquiry posted in the The Pilot (a Boston Newspaper) on August 21, 1841. In this announcement Martin was enquiring into the whereabouts of his brother Peter who had arrived in Newfoundland in 1821 and when last heard from he was in Portland, Maine, USA about three years earlier which would make it around 1838. If anyone has any information in their family files or could direct me as to where to find any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks................Karen Dahle

Surnames: GRANT
Query: My gr-gr grandfather was William Grant who m. Hannah Flynn in 1848 in St. John, Newfoundland. His marriage cert. indicates that he was from Kilmacow,Kilkenny, Ireland. His first son's name was Richard,suggesting that William's father's name had been Richard. There had been a Richard Grant and wife(possibly Bridget) in Granny during the 1820s.The names of the Granny Richard Grant's sons were Richard, Patrick, John, James,Michael, and William. These names also show up in Newfoundland in the 1840s. Is it possible that the Newfoundland Grants are the people from Granny? The only name that does not appear later in Newfoundland is Michael. My grandfather, Patrick Thomas Grant, was b. in Newfoundland in 1892 and was the son of Daniel Grant, the son of aforementioned William Grant from Kilmacow. When my grandfather left Newfoundland with his father Daniel Grant for Woburn,Massachusetts, there was one Grant family in Woburn. That was the family of Patrick Grant,son of Michael Grant of County Kilkenny. Did my gr-grandfather Daniel prearrange this move with his possible cousin Patrick Grant? The Granny Grant names have been repeated for generations in my ancestry. Are there any Grants remaining in the Kilmacow area who trace back to this line?

The family moved off the estate some time around 1900 and the last known address for any Bowers relative in the area is for a Susan Bowers living in "The Cottage," Dunlow, Kilkenny.

Subject: Richard Kelly, 1700's
Surnames: KELLY
Query: My ancestor which setteld in Newfoundland c1790's was said to have come from Kilkenny. It is said that he was a caretaker of a Church ( I presume Church of Ireland) as our family are Anglicans and that the Church was attacked and being burnt. There was a large Bible chained to the lecturne of the church and he took this Bible and escaped with his family. This Bible has deterorated over the years but is still in the Kelly Family in Coley's Point, Newfoundland. I have always wondered if there is any truth to this family story. My aunt has also said that the family name was O'Kelly but the O has been dropped. Also, nothing written in the Bible gives an indication of a place name and only Kelly names after 1800 are written in the Bible. Any information that you might be able to find would be of interest. Thank you.

Surnames: PHELAN
Query: I am looking for the parents of Edmund PHELAN, and his place of birth. In Pitt County North Carolina Deed Abstracts I found that Edmund PHELAN bought one-half acre lot from Comm. of Greenville, NC in 1792. This is the earliest record. There was an Edward PHALING listed in the 1790 census in Pitt Co. NC.He was 26-45 years old and living alone in 1790. We think that Edward PHALING and Edmund PHELAN were the same, since census takers were not careful of spellings at that time. All family lore reports that Edmund was from Ireland; some say Kilkenny. He had sons born in North Carolina: David and Thomas.
