I have a copy of a bible record for Bensons in Co Meath which starts with Thomas and Mary first child born in 1704. There are no wives surnames (mostly Mary!)   The family moved to Dublin about 1820 and were mostly silk weavers and organ builders. They were members of the C of I. Would be overjoyed to meet any interested people Margaret Carlson Grand Rapids Michigan


The family of Samuel Benson (1787-1853) (farmer) and Charlotte Walker (1783-1861) came from Summerhill and then Rathmolyon. They emigrated to Australia in 1841 on the 'Earl Grey' which sailed from Plymouth. They had 6 children, David (1813- ), James (1817-1905); born Summerhill, Thomas (1819-1873); born Summerhill , Charlotte (1820- );born Rathmolyon, Anne Jane(1823 - ); born Rathmolyon and Louisa (1825-1860); born Rathmolyon.
It appears that David did not emigrate to Australia with them. They were sponsored to Australia by William Walker and their calling was gardener, dairy maid, house servant. I am interested in finding out about these towns and also anyone who may have information about these families. Charlotte Walker's parents were named David and Anne and she also wasborn in County Meath.


Upon my Mothers recent burial, I also visited a Small Catholic cemetary in Paulding Mississippi. [Jasper County] My maternal grandparents and great-grandparents are buried there. The surnames that I would like to add are Bergin and Brogan.  Patrick Peter Bergin's tombstone states that he was born in County Meath on Oct. 1, 1796. His Wife Mary is buried beside him and his brothers are also buried at the foot of his grave. These are my mother's grandparents,but there are also many other old tombstones there of folks who came from County Meath. There are still several Bergin families is this tiny community. It thrived at one time,The church there is the oldest Catholic church in MS and is kept up by one of the Bergins

Trying to trace our grand father MICHAEL CARPENTER's birth / baptismal record in order to find details of his parents ( my great grandfather & great grandmother). Known details are as follows which may be added to your database if you wish..   MICHAEL CARPENTER c.1870-1925 who is shown in 1901 census as living alone @ CROSSDRUM,OLDCASTLE CO. MEATH (Townland of Lower Crossdrum in the barony of Fore) - with his mother CATHERINE,a native of Co.CAVAN. Michaels birthplace was recorded as WESTMEATH. From his death certificate which we have, he was 55 years old when he died at CROSSDRUM in 1925, leaving a widow, She was ROSE ANN MULDOON born in Mountnugent Parish, Cavan in 1885 and died in 1978 and is perhaps buried at St. Mary's, Moylough, Oldcastle, Co.Meath. ( Currently awaiting a response from St. Mary's). They had 4 children one of whom , JOHN, who died as an infant and we have no recorded details of his birth or date of death. MICHAEL (junior) - my Uncle Michael , 1914 - 1969 -Crossdrum. HUGH (Hughie)1915-1965 - my father who came over to UK and married Margaret KELLY 1925 - 1997 (originally from Co.Laois)  They married in 1940 in Coventry, UK at the Church of the Most Holy Sacrament ( now known as St.Osburgs). They have 5 children - all still living and all of whom were raised in Coventry. They are both still dearly missed by their children and grand children. ROSE - born ????-died 1978 - my Aunt Oddie who spent most of her life in a Convent in Mullingar I believe she would have been in her 70's when she died or possibly her late 60's?  .  We have written to Westmeath Heritage Centre who say they cannot trace our grandfathers birth/ baptismal record

Patrick CORCORAN, who married Catherine MONTAGUE, daughter of Christopher and Ellen - SEE MONTAGUE


Researching the Carolan family of Navan, Co. Meath, mid to late 1800's.




Looking for descendants and relatives of my grandmother, Julia Carolan(in). She left Co. Meath in 1892 coming to the US. She was one of 8 or 9 nine children. She had an older sister Catherine (Kate) who came to NYC a year or so earlier..Her parents' names were Peter and Mary but this is only heresay. Nothing to prove this fact in writing. Kate [ sister] eventually went back to Ireland but Julia stayed and married a George Andes in NYC about 1898.
