Wheartys of Dundalk
« on: Friday 23 June 17 22:11 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to trace my late fathers family in Dundalk. My father was Ernest Martin - mother Elizabeth's second marriage was to John Whearty was 1921 and they lived in Barrack Street. There were a few children - anyone any information gratefully received.

The Whearty children could possibly be still living so we can't post about them on RootsChat as there is a no living or possibly living policy but you can search here for possible births

I got distracted and forgot to post this
It looks like John died 1957, there is a son as informant
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1957/04402/4146086.pdf

It looks like Elizabeth died 1963 but if you click on the link it takes you to the wrong record, it's linking to a Dublin Whearty death not Elizabeth's Dundalk one.

That's fantastic - looks like he died on my birthday!
I have my grandmas death certificate thanks.
I don't suppose you could find any info on my great grandfather Owen Kirk? I have some info - marriage in Liverpool to Mgt Finnigan. Also he was a sailor so I thought there might be records but can't find anything!!
Or should I put this as a new post?
Many thanks

There is this record of a 20 year old Owen Kirk from Dundalk on the Pomona 1851
http://www.rootschat.com/links/01kat/

Does his marriage to Margaret Finnigan give his father's name?
What year was the marriage?

Their marriage was 1878 - Owen was 28 mariner  and Margaret 22. Her father was Patrick and he was a labourer.
The Owen Kirk you found is about the right age

Many thanks for your help
