Foley Family in KIlkenny
« on: Friday 05 January 18 19:55 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on the Foley family who lived in County Kilkenny in the early 19th Century. Mary Foley married Robert Nicholson around 1840 and is my great grandmother. I believe that her brother emigrated to Illinois, USA and his descendants may have moved to Canada and to Salt Lake City. Any information would be very welcome. Thanks  ;)

Thanks, I believe that this is Robert Nicholson's and Mary Foley's son also called Robert who moved to the UK, but returned to Mooncoin and died of tuberculosis in 1904.

Unfortunately I have no marriage records for Robert Nicholson senior and Mary Foley. Their first child, Bridget was born in 1868, so I assume they married around 1867. I believe that Robert Nicholson senior was born around 1840 and Mary Foley in 1847

Foley family who lived in County Kilkenny in the early 19th Century. Mary Foley married Robert Nicholson around 1840

So that should 1860 not 1840??
