Laois (Queens) / Re: Help with a surname , please
« on: Wednesday 29 August 18 02:05 BST (UK)  »
Hi Holly,
 I can tell you without any doubt that James McGrath was only married to Mary Bergin. They spent their whole life in Durrow, Laois. James was a grocer and eventually his daughter and son in law took over the business and expanded it. It was called Sheeran’s
 You have the wrong family. This James McGrath was born under the names James Cray in Rathdowney, Laois to Martin Cragh and Ann Fry.
Martin Cragh’s father is listed on Griffiths on Moore St in Rathdowney under the name John Creagh, so is Martin’s father in law, Samuel Fry.
 Martin Cragh and Ann Fry eventually moved to  Ballyragget, Kilkenny living on High St and that is where he had a bakery and went under the name McGrath. His 2 sons that did not immigrate to Penn Yan, NY were John and James. John staying on high st and James moving to Durrow.
 James was bapt 8 Jul 1857 under the name James Cray in Rathdowney Catholic register. He married Mary Bergin on 30 Aug 1877 in Ballyragget, Kilkenny and he died 20 May 1926 in Durrow, Laois. They had 8 children together.
I am sorry to say that you have attached my family as yours. This is not your James McGrath, mine was never divorced. I know there are several trees on ancestry by various cousins of mine that have this family on there and that maybe where you have attached him to your family but without any doubt I can tell you that this James was never divorced and was only 20 yrs old when he got married and then went on to have 8 children so he was fairly busy. All of these dates are easily verified in the catholic parish registers and also at irishgenealogy.ie if you would like to confirm on your own.

Hi Holly,
 I can give you more information as this post was from 2009. James McGrath was married to Mary Bergin only. He died in Durrow, Laois. I think you might have another James McGrath. James’ father was Martin Cragh/ McGrath who died in Ballyragget, Kilkenny.
 His grandparents were John Craugh and Mary Brouthers and they immigrated to Penn Yan and died there. There is no record of John Craugh’s parents as no record exists. I search page by page of the Catholic parish registers and it’s not in there. His father could not be the Rev. you spoke about as this is a catholic family.
  I hope this clears something’s up for you.

At the top of your screen there should be a tab that says “my messages”. It should be in there. You can also click on “my profile”

Hi Barry,
 The Gerry Farrell on this site is your cousin, son of Joseph. He has sent you a private message on here. You need to look at your acct settings and you should see there is a message for you.

Thank you for the offer. My cousin Gerry who lives in Scotland visited the cemetery and photographed all headstones that have survived. Unfortunately our relative’s grave wasn’t one of them. We do at least know he was buried there along with some of his wives and children.
Thank you again,
Megan

manda_mc,
 I’m not sure why you reposted my original post. Can you explain? That post is from 2008. We have learned a lot about this family since then. Do you have a question about this family?

Hi Mr Lowe,
 Can you tell us how you are related to Peter Farrell and Mary McPoland? The family you mention in NJ (North Arlington) would be my line. There is another descendant on this chat forum who may also respond to you, Gerry Farrell.
 It will be interesting to see how your family line fits in. The family trees you see on ancestry would be both Gerry and my family lines.
 Patrick Farrell md. Ann Devlin in Co Down. Ann Devlin’s parents are Terrance Devlin and Sarah Cull. The Flood surname comes from Ann Devlin Farrell’s second marriage to Luke Flood in Glasgow.
