1869 burial of Jeremiah Quinlan, in Tasmania
« on: Sunday 24 June 18 19:10 BST (UK) »
The death record attached tells that the informant of Jeremiah Quinlan's death in 1869 Tasmania was the undertaker Thomas J. Doolan. The Quinlan family look to have lived in Campbell Town, Jeremiah being the son of William Quinlan and Margaret McDonald.
I am trying to locate the grave of Jeremiah Quinlan in the hope that it will be a family plot with records detailing other family members buried there.
Any help will be much appreciated.

The death was registered in Launceston where also Doolan was an undertaker, so he is likely to have been buried there.

This is no help with your original enquiry as there is no record of the burial, but may be useful, although it looks as though you have already seen it.

Thanks for trying, Judith,

I have seen that record and finding a burial for any of the Quinlans is proving challenging, to say the least  .... I had been hoping that with an undertaker there was perhaps a record somewhere of his grave. And if there was, maybe some of his siblings and/or parents were with him.

His sister was my great-great grandmother, and seems to have been Catholic so I thought maybe there might be church records but so far, no joy there either.

Your efforts are much appreciated.

Rodney53.

Edit to add: I now see some of these already posted by wivenhoe, but as I've typed them I'll leave them up.

This looks to be the birth mentioned by clancam
   
Name:
Dennis Quinlan, Dennis
Parents: Quinlan, Cornelius
Mother: Mcdonald, Margaret
Date of birth:  24 May 1862
Registered:
Launceston,1862
Record ID:
NAME_INDEXES:1012006
Resource:  RGD33/1/40 no 216
Again, the father has signed with a cross, and his occupation is given as 'groom'

It is not unusual for there to be mistakes in registration, especially when the informant is illiterate.  Speculation:  Perhaps the registrar asked "Name of father?" and perhaps Cornelius is the name of the father's father. 

And this death with the different father's name, but the age of the child fits the above birth.
Denis QUINLAN, died 16 June, 1862, aged 3 weeks, groom's child, cause of death: diarrhea. Informant was the father, Denis QUINLAN, who signed with a cross.
Registered, Launceston

https://linctas.ent.sirsidynix.net.au/client/en_AU/names/search/results?qu=dennis&qu=quinlan

Birth of another child, with the registrar spelling the surname differently. Father is the informant , signs with a cross and occupation again 'groom'

Margaret QUINLAND
Parents: William QUINLAND, Margaret nee McDonald
Born: 28 Oct 1863
Registered:
Launceston, 1863
Record ID:
NAME_INDEXES:1014495
Resource:
RGD33/1/41 no 422

And another - this looks like a second name for William.   Siilar registration details as above.
John James QUINLAND
Parents: William Cornelius, Margaret,nee McDonald
Born: 28 Jan 1868
Registered:
Launceston 1868
Record ID:
NAME_INDEXES:1017857
Resource:
RGD33/1/46 no 60

Another Quinland child b 1865, similar reg details. No given name recorded.  William's occ given as 'labourer'

And an earlier one, Mary Bridget QUINLAND, b 03 May 1856

Will leave you to search for some others, including a death for a William QUINLAN, d 24 Jul 1882, 66, Campelltown.  Killed by being violently thrown down steps.  There is an inqest report on the LINC site for his death
