Monaghan / Patrick Brennan - Bridget Rice
« on: Tuesday 10 August 10 22:16 BST (UK)  »
 :) looking for any help with tracing my family roots in Monaghan.

The only info I have is that my Gt Grandfather James Brennan (born around 1862) married Anne Elizabeth Murphy (b 1872?) in St. Michael's, Annayalla on the 2nd of June 1898.
Shortly after they married they moved to Glasgow, James worked as Tram car driver.  they had two children, Mary Brennan b1900 (later married Peter Morgan) and Patrick John Brennan b 1901 (later married Mary Hamilton Burns).
1901 Scotland Census only gives James and Anne's place of birth as Ireland!
James died in Glasgow in 1936 and from his death cert his parents are listed as Patrick Brennan (farmer) and Bridget Rice.
Anne also died in Glasgow but in 1946 and from her death cert her parents are listed as John Murphy and Bridget Markey.

I also know that James had the following brothers and sisters

Bridget Brennan b 16/04/1867 Castleblayney, Monaghan

Patrick Brennan b 16/04/1867 Castleblayney

Francis Brennan b 10/07/1872 Castleblayney

Anne Brennan b 12/07/1874 Castleblayney
I visited Annayalla earler on this year but had absolutely no luck with trying to get a hold of the priest at St. Michael's (I had tried emailing him several times before going).  Was advised by a very nice lady that the priest would not wish to help by letting me look at the marriage register!

Any help would be great ;D
