Hi Mary,
Thank you so much for your help and especially taking the time to check with the cemetery.

I suspected that the grave would be difficult to identify after what had been decades of neglect. I find it odd that there is no record other than the register though when there are so many headstones from much older graves. Oh well; that's how it is.

[Yes, I was aware of the Charles Innes Grant and wife Eliza, if this is one of the the stones standing upright against the side of the  Barracks burial ground. I've kept open the possibility that these are the parents of Elizabeth Grant, i.e. my great grandparents but have been unable to solve the mystery.]

(Kindly disregard this last paragraph. I think it was way past my bedtime when I wrote it. I am aware of the Grant headstone you mention but the ggrandparent ref is incorrect. DG)
Thanks again for your help.

Regards,

Denis

Hi Mary,
I am also the "owner" of the Yahoo group milgenire - Military History/Genealogy of Ireland and its Facebook mirror http://www.facebook.com/groups/milgenire/

It occurred to me that milgenire might be a good place to post your Barracks photos and names? It would certainly make me very happy.

Just a thought.

Regards,

Hi,

The Cork Archives (www.corkarchives.ie) have digitised the records for Rathcooney cemetery,
and you can browse through it to see if your relations are buried there.

This is link - just click on Rathcooney

http://www.corkarchives.ie/collections/cemeteryrecords/

What surname are you looking for?  I have photographed a lot of headstones there but only in the older section.

Let me know and I will check to see if I have the one you are looking for.

Hello there,
I'm desperately trying to find my Daddys brotehers grave. His name was Brian Manning, born in 1948 and believed to have passed between 1963-1978. I was wondering if you know of his grave being here? My dad seems to think he could have been buried by or with his other family members whose family name is Tanham? Is anybody aware of these?
Thanks for your help.
Kaleigh :-)
