I am searching for the parents of my 5th great grandfather, William Henry. Per family information, he was born in 1715 in Ireland. He came to the US in 1733ish and settled in York, South Carolina where he passed in 1819. Some family information says his original last name was Hendry and he changed it to Henry when he came to the States. I found a William Hendry, baptised at Drumbo Presbyterian Church in County Down in 1716, who's father is listed at James Hendry. Per family tradition, his father was weathy.

My ggf, James Cooke (1859-1922) and his sister, Mary Cooke (c1852) who were from Carrigeenagowna, Tubbercurry, Sligo both married people from Killasser. James Cooke married Margaret Ruddy (2 Jan 1858-22 Feb 1919) at the RC Church, Killasser, Co. Mayo on 14 February 1885. Margaret was a daughter of Martin Ruddy (c1817-13 May 1888) and Catherine Madden (c1833-17 March 1909) of Knox, Kilasser. After their marriage they lived in Carrigeenagowna. Margaret Ruddy Cooke appears to have had siblings called Martin Ruddy, (1 Aug 1874-23 Mar 1957), Hugh Ruddy, and Catherine Ruddy.

Looking for Keanes of Garraunbaun, Ballynakill, Galway

I am looking for the burial place of Festus Keane who died on 14th May 1961, he was from Garraunbaun, Ballynakill, Galway.   His wife was Mary (Duane) Keane.   Also looking for their marriage record (Church) as there is no record for a civil marriage for them.  According to 1911 census return for Garraunbaun they are married five years, so marriage would be between 1905-1907?  There may have been a child born to them after they married who died after birth, as only 2 of 3 children were alive in 1911, no civil record of this child.

~~Dia dhaoibh!

I live in Dublin and plan to come to Carlow and Kilkenny in 2014 to do some family history research. In Carlow, I’d like to connect with any Hinches who might be able to fill me in on gaps in my family. My maternal grandfather was Henry Hinch, who was baptised on 6 August 1898 in Limerick. However, his parents, John Hinch and Ellen Rice, were married in Clonegal, Shillelagh, Co. Carlow on 13 August 1878. His address was Ballylower and hers was Sherwood. Their first children, James, Mary and Julia were born in Carlow 1883 -1889.

Daly family

Lucy1's picture


I am trying to find out more about my great grandfather James Daly (1871) born in Oldcastle.  He married Mary Lynch in March 1901.  Her parents were Michael Lynch and Anne Curren.  James went to Liverpool around March 1901 and Mary followed in May 1901.  Any information about James would be really helpful as I have hit a brick wall and would like to move on with the Daly family research.

thanks very much
