    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Can you clarify when John was born and do you have his mother's name? I looked at the 1901 and 1911 censuses for Keeloges townland in Rossinver civil parish and the only Dermott/McDermott was a Bernard McDermott who was unmarried and blind.

  • Found John's civil birth record on the free site www.irishgenealogy.ie  He was born April 10th 1877.

    https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1877/03010/2103049.pdf

    Mary 1866 Rose Anne 1868 Ellen 1870 (registered in 1871) Bridget 1874  If you want to look for their civil birth records, they are in the Ballyshannon registration district.

    Did the family leave Ireland?
