Another headstone:

I was told the following about another headstone in the graveyard at the back of the parish church in Fore.

It reads Catherine Halpin, died 6/5/1880, aged 72,  Christopher Halpin, died 16/4/1890, aged 74 - then Bridget, wife of Christopher, died 9/4/1906, aged 40.  Then on the side is Christopher, died June 1971 and Mary Ellen, died February 1982.  At the bottom it says erected by Rev. W. J. Halpin, Iowa, U.S.

Re: Patrick Halpin who died on 27/12/1905 and William Halpin who died on 11/07/1911

I realised as I was going over some of my records that I have a photograph of Patrick and William's grave taken on 20/11/2015. It seems to be too large to attach here but if anyone wants a copy I can email it to them.

I also realised that William's date of death is given as 6th July 1911 on the headstone however the death certificate definitely states 11th July 1911.

I cannot thank you enough for all of your research. I am still employed at this time, so do not have the time I would like to invest in research. I will definitely come back and review your fabulous contribution. Thank you again!

Feichin - thank you again for your wonderful research. I will use it to build the family tree and hopefully find my grandfather in the process.

kaligirl,

You are welcome.

It is an ongoing project and there are many loose ends of which your grandfather's date of birth is one. I too cannot find my grandfather's date of birth. Mentioned in this thread he was born around the same time and place as yours. I do have a baptism date for him which is probably correct but I have not verified it completely yet.

If I find any further information on the family I will come back to this thread and let you know.

All the best.
