hello micheal, again i am posting for my mum, although she is now on rootchat and may reply too. she has had a quick look at her tree but at the moment her brain has turned to mush with all the names and dates. she has asked me to let you know that she will return to this thread and will hopefully reply with some more info for you although, she is struggling with this line of her tree and may not be able to help. hopefully ou can both help each other and fill in the blanks.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm a bit disappointed that once again my initial excitement has been dented slightly. I would love to know why the search for my father's history is so elusive. My father was never forthcoming with information regarding his family (never really wanting to discuss the topic). I had the feeling my father may have left home, never wanting to return, maybe to start a new life. Anyway it's been great to have made this contact, but I have no other information to offer, other than that given in the original post.

Kind regards
Michael Denigan

i may be stepping on my toes here, but i will breifly give you what i know. my great nan (my mums nan) was a denigan at birth. she never really spoke much of her family, indeed she claimed not to be irish.  although further reseach show her father whomever he was was irish. my mother has the father of her nan as richard denigan, born abt 1882 in longford ireland, she has a copy of the marriage in which he gives his name as richard denigan. he also names his father as james. she alo has him on the 1901 census as richard.

i would not take this as his name literally though, if your james and our richard are the same person and the father was james it might be that he used his middle name.  of course it could be a coincidence that you have a james denigan marrying a amy revell, and we have almost similar but i dont think it is. we have yet to find any birth record for a richard denigan, and although the irish records are scetchy, the denigans were RC and would have baptised their children, meaning there should be a record somewhere.

im sure my mum will get back to you soon, so please keep checking back xxxxx

Thanks again. I am sure they are likely to be the same person.  There can't be too many Denigan's married to an Amy Revell, I will check again tomorrow, as its rather late here.


Take care......thxs so much

i am again posting for my mum here, she doesnt use rootschat as much as she should but i will defo tell her to answer you della. my mums grandmother was irene agnus denigan, her father was richard denigan. my mum is almost 100% sure his father was james from longford. so i would say you must be related all in some way.
we are trying to establish who richards mother was. if we can find a wife for james then we may be able to locate them on the irish 1901 or 1911 census.
