- Power/Walsh/Leahy/Sinnott family from Callan
Greetings to the Callan community,
I was hoping to find out more about my Power ancestors. First Power I know of is a John Power born abt 1765 and died in Callan 24th Oct but year is not clear. He married a Eleanor Walsh (1767-1810).
My lineage is their son James Power 1796ish-1853 and he married Marry Sinnett (abt 1796-1881) and they seemed to have lived in Mallardstown, Callan.
James seems to have had the following siblings:
Anastasia, Ellen, Patrick, Thomas (1790ish and possibly married an Anastasia Ready), Edmond (1799 and possibly married a Margaret Donwney) and Margaret (1800)
My James and Mary seemed to have had the following children:
Thomas, Patrick (1821), John (1824), Margaret (1827), James (1830), Catherine (1833)
My lineage is via James (1830-1911) who married Mary Leahy (1846-1928 - date may be incorrect as she seems to have been giving birth well in to her 40s?)
Their offspring were:
Anastasia (1872 and went on to marry Michael Corcoran in Kill O' The Grange in Co Dublin- my decendants), Patrick (1874), Marie (1878), John (1880), James (1881), Ellen (1886), Edward and Thomas (twins 1890).
Any family connection would be fantastic, especially on the earlier family. I am also keen to try and establish links to POwers in Wexford and Waterford as I seem to have DNA links to Powers there but can't seem to get out of Callan!
Many thanks to you all.

We hope that you have some success in finding other Power connections.
I found a couple record which may be of interest. I located another child Bridget born in 1885 and I located an 1876 birth record for James rather than 1881.
See next to last record for 1885 birth of Bridget.
See fifth record for an 1876 birth of James Power
