  • Allison, No baptism record found for Thomas or Mary Carthy/McCarthy. A Mary Carthy is recorded on May 9th 1872. Her address is Tallow. She married David Long, Widower, of Conna. His father is recorded as Michael a farmer. John Carthy is also recorded as a farmer. Regards,

  • That's Mary I am looking for is rhat her DOB 1872 , this is the problem Mary as named married David Long his 1st wife Mary Morrisonsy passed away and left 5 Children he then Married Mary Mccarthy/ Carthy they had 5 children she also passed away at a young age thus leaving 5 of her own plus 5 of David's previous marriage, as u can imagine there was a lot of upset within the family as no one took these especially the Mccarthy children in even thought apparently certain members had money that's the story anyways now apparently Mary was my Grt grandfather sister and this is what I am trying to get information if she was or wasn't definitely a relative as I have a DNA Match with Grt Grandson and Grt grt Granddaughter

  • Allison, Mary Carthy married David Long in Tallow on May 9th 1872. The entry states that she was of Full Age. You can download this entry for free irishgenealogy.ie Registrar's District Tallow. BMD records in Ireland are from January 1st 1864. Note: Many records were not reported to the Civil Authority. I did not find any baptism for Mary Carthy or Timothy Carthy with parents John McCarty/Carthy or Margaret Power in County Waterford. Regards,

  • We were wondering if John Carthy married 2 Power women especially of 1 had passed away and Mary's mother is actually Catherine Power , there doesn't seem to be any other valid explanation,

  • Allison, A John Carty married a Catherine Power in Clashmore - West Waterford - on March 3rd 1835. Witnesses: Mary Russel and Michael O'Donnell Parents names not recorded. A Mary Carthy was baptised in Clashmore in April 1839. Parents: John Carthy and Catherine Power. There is also a John McCarthy who was married to a Mary Power. There is only one marriage recorded for Tallow which I found. That is John McArty and Margaret Power. Could your relatives be from the parish of Clashmore?. If you search catholicparishregisters@nli.ie you will get a map of the various parishes. You will then be in a position to judge the location of each. David Long is recorded for Conna which adjoins the parish of Tallow. Regards,
