Hi
I've got Denigan links and have just found a connection with Rachel and Carol and got in touch with them. But I think Michael in NZ.. you might be my mums cousin!! (have sent you a message)

Can we have a definate list of this family as I think I'm missing some children of Richard Dennigan (b. 1882 Longford) and Amy Ann Revell (b. 1884)
I'll start with what I have but please correct me if wrong or missing something...

1903 Winifred Mary
1904 Mary Ann (my mum's mum)
1907 James W
1909 Richard T
1912 Lawrence
1920 Irene A
1923 Charles


There's a bit of a gap there and I wouldn't be surprised if more children :)

Wedding Photo of IRENE AGNUS DENIGAN and WILLIAM DEEDMAN in 1939. Also in the photo are RICHARD DENIGAN and his wife AMY ANN and Irenes brother

Carole that photograph is fantastic ! How amazing   :)
Do you know who is who? Which one of Irenes brothers is in the picture?
My mum was able to recognise Grandad Denigan in the centre!

i am answering for my mum as she doesnt use rootschat as much as i keep telling her she should (carolemoore is my mum).as far as we know it in the photo

middle bride and husband seated- irene agnus denigan and william (bill) deedman
two girls in yellow gold either side-modified -deedman sister's
gentleman behind william-richard denigan
lady in green-amy ann revell
lady in black-william deedmans mother
gentleman and lady on the left are deedmans
far right gentleman in lighter suit is charles dennigan
gentleman in darker suit is we think lawrence denigan.



NZ i should point out that irenes daughter, your mums cousin and my grandmother is still living and would love to make contact, she is on fb and i will message you her details on fb.


as for all the children of richard and amy as far as we know you have them all except a thomas j denigan born and died 1911.

i may be able to explain the long periods between children but i dont want to upset anyone with anything. basicly richard was a bit of a jack the lad and played away from home for long periods of time. there were aparently long periods where amy and richard did not talk, although always apearing to be the perfect married couple. this i only the way my nan saw it at the time, and from tales she heard from irene denigan. i hope i havent upset anyone there.

Thanks Rachel. Great information.

Will catch you on FB I'm sure.

Wanted to view this on here though in case anyone else picks it up..
my mum has a memory of being told there was a Denigan Uncle that moved to the US and was a Chicago police chief.

I've found a Michael Joseph Denigan born 6 October 1887 in Longford who arrived in the US in 1910, Married Margaret Dyer (had several children) lived in Chicago and was a policeman.

I'm wondering if this Michael might have been a brother of our Richard Denigan born 1883.

Would be interested to hear if anyone has any more info on this.

Rachel - I think we won't be able to tie up Richard to his parents (potentially the James & Mary.A we found) until we get his birth certificate - I read on this forum earlier that you were ordering the cert - just wondered if you had done that or not?

Any other help from forum members on how to get further Irish details would be great  :)
eg. marriage details of Richards parents, birth details of his parents etc

the best way to follow up the search is to order the possible birth cert mentioned earlier (see reply #2). Since you already have Richards father's name, and presumably occupation, from his marriage cert (see the original post) you can compare these against the birth cert you get to see if you have a match.

Once you have the full names of his father & mother you could then search for thir marriage, which would give you their father's names and occupations.

The births of Richard's parents would be before the start of civil birth registrations (1864), so you would need to check to see what parish records are available for the parish(es) they were baptised in.

for those who are searching for richard denigan, who im not in contact with through fb, i have the info for richard denigans parents now.

i rang longford office as online it tells you it is mandatory to add mothers name to order as birth cert, seeing as this was one of the reasons for ordering a cert, i was a little baffled. the lady i spoke to was very very helpful, there is only one richard denigan registered in the county of longford in 1882. he was born in KILLASHEE, DOB 9TH MARCH 1882. MOTHER-MARY ANN BURKE, FATHER-JAMES DENIGAN.

all this ties up with the 1901 and 1911 irish census' that show a family with the father james and mother mary ann., living in ballyclare killashee.
