Hi,

I tried to read your other thread http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=482775. but it strayed a bit, I think.

Is that your starting point - John Walsh and Mary Furlong, parents of Bridget and others? Are you trying to go back from that couple?

Just found Mount Street on old maps which ran parallel to Medlock Street and Newcastle Street - between the two. Both those are on a modern map.

I can't see Samuel later and of course quite a bit  of the 1851 is damaged.

Hello,

Looking at the enumerator's district in 1841, Myrtle Street was in the area of Medlock St/Chester St and Clarendon Street which makes it closer to the present Mount Street.
That all depends however on if Mount Street is the correct one and also if that Samuel is the correct one too  ;)

Hallmark,

It isn't the right marriage or couple - see above, especially post #3

Hi,

There is only Bridget's birth showing in 1880 and there is one death, 2nd quarter 1880 for Bridget Walsh.

I can't access that record.
What is the year and place?

I think they both refer to 'my nephew' in the correspondence but as you say it is more likely and Mary was their witness.

Thanks - and now you mention Land Steward I might have read that in the thread - sorry.

The army record makes sad reading- I just read it through today.

I'm glad it's a help to go through all this.  There are some stumbling blocks.

I suppose Land Steward and Gardener could be linked.

There are a few years between Mary and Elizabeth and different birth places. If they are sisters, their mother could have remarried - who knows.

We are not allowed to post details of 1911 apart from the index - here she is from FS

Her birthplace is transcribed as 'Atky', Queens County. I quite favour this as 'Abby' perhaps for Abbeyleix.

You said you had gone down the Mary Bachelor marriage route - did you get the certificate?
I understand that you wouldn't particularly want it without better evidence.
It is strange that there is no birth showing yet for Joseph - frustrating  :-\
