Galway / Francis Hurley Death 1865
« on: Thursday 14 March 19 16:17 GMT (UK)  »
All all,

Looking to go further back with my 3rd great grandparents.  On the marriage of his daughter Mary in 1873 when she married Thomas Bagot, (Williamstown area) he is a farmer and not down as deceased, but know this was not always listed.

On church Marriage record his wife is Mary Shiel.  The family were RC.

There is also a Griffiths Evaluation in 1856 Kilcroan, Galway area, listed as farmer with Patrick Sheil, not sure if him as all I have at the moment is his & wife's name.

I am wondering if any of these could possibly be his death?

FRANCIS HURLEY Date of Death 1865
District/Reg Area Glenamaddy
Deceased Age at Death 48
Year 1865, Quarter 4 ,Volume No 19, Page No 179

There is also this one

FRANCIS HURLEY Date of Death 1865
District/Reg Area Glenamaddy
Deceased Age at Death 48
Year 1865. Quarter 2, Volume No 9, Page No 191

Still find Irish Research confusing, have had great help from Rootschatters in the past. Be grateful for any help or imput.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Just a thought
« on: Thursday 14 February 19 16:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all  :)

Not having a gripe, well ok I am...

Since having my DNA tested, at Xmas, at one of the major sites, it has renewed my interest in FH and my tree. Have been following just a paper trail, on and off since about 2003 since my Dad passed.

Well, I am amazed at the number of people who have payed to have DNA testing done but have no tree, to find a connection!  :o

Also those you message, have either not shown interest for months, years!! or do not reply at all!   >:(

I cannot say I am disappointed, more disgruntled.

Have any others found this is the norm?

Ok, got it off my chest, gripe over..  :-X

Breconshire / Ebenezer Lewis
« on: Monday 28 January 19 11:05 GMT (UK)  »

Hope someone can help, found on familysearch, which is playing up for me today.

Ebenezer Lewis bapt 6 July 1782 in Llywel, Breconshire

Does any have access to original record to see if parents are given?

Also from familysearch, same person, (I think)

Ebenezer Lewis marriage banns 7 Aug 1808 in Llywel to Margaret Davies

Is there additional info on marriage, witness etc?

Have Ebenezer, a shoemaker, age 60 (1781) & family in 1841, Ystradgynlais, with wife Margaret, but know little about family earlier. He dies 1847 age 66. Children in 1841 are David c1820, Benjamin c1827, Mary c1830, Jane c1832.

Thinking the above maybe a connection.

Thanks for any help

« on: Sunday 09 September 18 09:01 BST (UK)  »

Mary Ellen Vahey b 7 Aug 1909 Cambridge, Massachusetts, died 13 Oct 2001, Melrose, Middlesex, Mass.

Have her in 1920 census with widowed father James Joseph Vahey, b 1875, Ireland, d 1935, Mass - Unable to locate 1910 census with mother Mary, née Bagot/Baggot born 1886 Ireland, died 10 Feb 1919 Massachusetts (my line)

By 1930 census she is still with father and 2nd wife, married with a son Lawrence J McCarthy, b 7 Sept 1928.  No father/husband listed on census. Lawrence died 2008. Possibly first husband is called Timothy, unable to locate marriage or death.

By 1940 census she is with 2nd husband Joseph Hovasse, b 1909, first son Lawrence McCarthy, age 11 and 3 further Hovasse children, firstborn a girl in c1934 then 3 sons. 2 prior to 1940 on census, the 4th son b ? after census taken.

Unsure If Hovasse children still living. So no names given.

If possible would like to find marriage details of husbands and births or bapts of all children & possible deaths/burials of her family.

Thanks if you can help, or point me in the direction of Massachusetts BMD after 1920/1930s. Any info appreciated.
