Stormon/Powers in Nodstown/Thurles
« on: Wednesday 19 July 17 17:57 BST (UK) »
Hello! I am trying to find the parents of Thomas Kelly b. c1813 and Margaret Stokes b. c1820.

My latest slight breakthrough is a DNA connection (that includes me and other known descendants of Thomas and Margaret) to 2 people who are 3rd cousins. Their common ancestors are Michael Stormon b. c1800 in Nodstown, Tipperary and Margaret Powers b. c1809 in Thurles, Tipperary. It would be a breakthrough to find that either Thomas Kelly's or Margaret Stokes' mother was a Stormon or Powers.

(FYI, Thomas and Margaret (Stokes) Kelly had emigrated to Boston, MA by 1838 when their oldest daughter was born. Also, their surviving children were named, in order, Mary, John Joseph, Johanna, Ellen, and Thomas. I have been speculating that Margaret's mother was named Mary and that Thomas' father was named John.)

I'm hoping someone has access to better information than I can find online. Thank you!

The only occurrence of the Storman name I can see is Griffiths Valuation in 1850 www.nationalarchives.ie for a Honoria Storman Parish of Ardmayle, Place name & Townland Nodstown-recorded as having 85 acres land Landlord James Graham.

The Roman Catholic church records are online Baptisms/Marriages (years vary in different parishes) www.registers.nli.ie

Hi,
In 1827 an Edmd (Edmund) Stokes lived in Nodstown, Parish of Ardmayle.
Also
STORMOND is listed there is a Edmond and a John.
this info is in the Tithe records.
If Michael Stormon went to Australia then he paid for his 2 sisters, Mary and Judy to go in 1853.
The father was Edmund (dec) and the Mother was Mary and still living at that time.
Just checked a few trees out this is all correct.
The Kelly and Stokes is harder to find but I will keep searching.
