    How can we help you? It appears that Honorah had 12 children or more from records I located on the subscription site Roots Ireland. 

    On Roots Ireland, I located a December 14 1841 baptismal record for a Honoria/Honora Howard with father Jeremiah and mother Maria Tobin. The parish was Kilfinane. Is This may be the record for your Honorah.

  • I’m looking but I don’t see her on those records 

    where you able to get the names of all her children 

    I was talking to my uncle who is 95 years old and he said she did have a lot of children including one daughter who had her name but that she had passed and she named her 2nd daughter After her 

    also any info on her parents would help 

    I was just in Ireland on a tour but I didn’t know where to go in limerick to get help finding things

    I will see if my can "snip" the register entry.

    The children were Thomas 1867 Maria/Mary 1868 Jeremiah 1870 Ellen/Helen 1871 Patrick 1873 John 1875 Ellen 1876 (likely the 1871 child died young) Thomas 1879 Mary 1880 (1868 child died young?) Mary/Marian 1881 (1880 died young?) Bridget 1883 Hanora 1886

    Looks like Honorah had at least four other siblings: Maria 1837 Thomas 1839 James 1844 Alice 1846. I did not locate a marriage record.

    Your ancestors may not have a headstone to mark their burial location. See this site for some background on local cemeteries near Kilfinane.
