Subject: Ellen MEADE, Abt 1832, Callan
Surnames: MEADE, TROTT, BARKER
Query: Hi, I'm trying to find out about my husband's GGG grandmother. Her name is Ellen MEADE,her middle name was possibly Medden.From her death and marriage certificates she was born in Callan, which I believe is part of Kilkenny, about 1832. Her father's name was James MEADE, and his occupation was bootmaker. Mothers name unknown. Also unknown if he left Ireland. Ellen MEADE seems to have emigrated to Western Australia in about 1850, since on her death certificate of 24 November 1901, aged 69 years she had lived in Western Australia for 50 years. Ellen MEADE married Thomas Henry TROTT on 15 or 25 August 1851 in Fremantle, Western Australia. She was then 19 years old. His parents Hodson TROTT and Maria BARKER of Boston, Lincolnshire. He was born 23 October 1823,died 6 Mat 1910. He was a convict sent to Western Australia aboard the Scindian in 1850, sentenced 6 March 1847 and granted Ticket of Leave 3 December 1850. They produced 8 children and lived in the Western Australian towns of Fremantle, Irishtown, Serpentine and Bunbury. Any help or exchange of information appreciated thank you.

Query: I am looking for information about my great-grandfather, William Campion, and his family, all of whom were from Graig. The family was Catholic. William's parents were Edmund Campion and Rebecca Reid, both of whom I guess were born about 1820 and who married about 1845. Edmund and Rebecca had at least six children, but the only one I have information about is William, who the records suggest was born in October, in or about 1848. William emigrated to America in 1880 and died in an historic fire in New York City on the night of January 9, 1912. I would greatly appreciate any information or any suggestions.

She had 5 brothers and sisters. William,John,Vera,Annie and Ilene. My mother was born in 1909 -I think in Dublin. The story was she was driven out of the village as she has argued with a priest- and she went to England to Stockport at the age of 17. She had attended the village school,but had been very badly treated by her Mother. Timothy had an accident on the Estate when a pile of wood fell on his head. He was dumb afterwards and had surgery to insert a silver plate in his head-i gatehr the countess would have paid for this. However-he could not work and the family was very poor. Does anyone know of the work my grandfather did-I gather he carved church architectural detail,and there was evidently a book of his work. Thank you

Query: Patrick and William Brennan left Kilkenny 1867 and 1885 and lived in Armidale, Australia. Patrick's obituary (1922) stated that a brother Martin and sister Annie (Larkin) still lived in Ireland. In 1929 Martin Brennan wrote to his niece stating his sister Julia had died in 1915 and he was the only one of 10 children surviving. Martin's daughter Margaret also wrote stating she had 1 brother and 4 sisters. The address given on these letters was Knockmajor, Coolcullen, County Kilkenny. I believe that Patrick and William's parents were Thomas and Margaret. I also have a photograph of a Pat Brennan and family. Details given are me and mother, John, wife and family, Den, wife and babe, Mary, husband and family. I have no idea who this family is. The house is quite substantial. It looks to be made of timber and part of it has two storeys. Perhaps it is in America??

Patrick and Mary Raftis and baby son James left Ireland for Canada around 1847 and the the baby son died on the voyage to Canada and was buried at sea.
