The change is a long story !! Originally the Grahams were a Scottish border clan who were ran out of England by the King for being troublemakers !!!! They fled to Northern Ireland and so as not to be traced changed their name to Grimes and other similar surnames so the story goes. They spread throughout Ireland as Grimes's. In our particular instance we were all Grimes's until my grandparents married in 1920 and the priest at the time insisted there was no such name as Grimes and the real name was Graham and thus the marriage was registered in the name of Graham as were all the children of this marriage. To make matters more confusing my father was the only one of these children that was known as Graham as were all of us kids while all my Aunts and Uncles stayed as Grimes's unofficially though all their official documentation seems to be Graham. Confused ?? should try living it LOL !!

Check to make sure he's not under Grimes, I m James Graham from Limerick and all my ancestors prior to 1920 are Grimes and some after 1920 kept the Grimes name. The Grimes/Graham thing is very common.

Thanks for all that info Mike, I m not familiar with your family of Hayes s but its all part of the big puzzle and good to have some new lines to work on! Do you know if your Hayes s are buried in Abington cemetery?

Hi Mike its good to hear from you! Do you know anything of your family tree beyond your grandfather? I m trying to link up with Hayes s that may be related through siblings from the early 1800s. My great great grandfather was John Hayes who was residing in Murroe village about 1830s and married a Mary Hartnedy in 1833 (not the famous Mary From Murroe). My Great Grandfather was John Hayes too born in 1847 had a brother James and sisters Mary, Bridget and Catherine and married Ellen Fitzgerald from Rath in 1872. Ellen and John moved the short distance to Cappanuke where their last child Larry Hayes was born in 1895 he was my grandfather and my mothers father. I m sure all the Hayes families in Murroe are linked from way back what do you think? My John Hayes from the 1830s surely had brothers with families and so on?
Incidentally I lived in Ballyguy for a couple of years too!
Are you in Ireland? I m in Limerick.

Yes I agree with you K and this is the death i was most focusing on, would it be possible he would have been moved out that far to a hospital maybe?
