United States of America / Albert Snowdon - Ireland to NY c. 1902
« on: Tuesday 17 April 18 19:50 BST (UK)  »
I've trying to find how and when my 2x great uncle arrived in America - I how why and more or less when but have never found an emigration record for him.

He joined the British Army in Dublin 2 Jul 1902 and had deserted by 4th August!!!  I have in a Salvation Army Hotel in NY in the 1905 census and he died in 1923, living in 225 The Bowery. It seems that he was working for the same firm for the duration of his time in NY and his friend, the bosses son, organised his burial.

He was Albert William Snowden (sometimes Snowdon), born in Dublin in 1879 and died in NY on 3 Nov 1923 from acute appendicitis.

I believe I have all records for him other than his immigration / emigration records and would appreciate it if anyone knew of some way of finding this last link.

Thanks in advance

Northamptonshire / FEARY - Grendon early 1700s
« on: Friday 06 October 17 13:12 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am hoping someone here might be able to help me.

The furthest I can go back with my Feary line (I am a Feary myself!) is to William and Ann Feary who lived in Grendon in the 1720s. They had Thomas (1723), Mary (1726), William (1728) and John (1738) (that I know about) - these two William's were my 5th and 6th great grandfathers.

William (the son) moved to Middlesex at some point and only that his will mentions lands and a timber business in Grendon I would have continued thinking that he was born in Middlesex.

He married Ann Higgins in 1765 in London and they had a son William James in 1778 (Ann was quite a bit younger than William). He died the following year.

I would love to connect with anyone with looking into this family too

Best wishes

Dublin / Where did family live between dates?
« on: Tuesday 27 June 17 13:49 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I have a family living in Meath Street when the father died in 1868 and dont have any other mention of any of them until 1886 in James Street North, Dublin (North Strand area - not James' St area) in Thoms directory the year before the mother died.

Would anyone have access to directories for the years in between (1868-1886) that could have a quick look for either an Elizabeth McEvoy (the mother) or John McEvoy (eldest son)

Any help would be greatfully appreciated

Offaly (Kings) / McEvoys - Rhode / Edenderry 1800s
« on: Monday 10 April 17 13:50 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,
I've finally managed to trace my quite elusive 2x great grandparents to Offaly and would be delighted to talk to anyone else who might have information on them.

They are William McEvoy b. Mar 1822 to John McEvoy & Margaret Hogan (m. Feb 1822 in Edenderry)

He was baptised in Edenderry, as were siblings Mary (1823), Michael (1824), Elizabeth (1826), Ann (1827), James (1829), Bidy (1830) and James again (I guess the earlier one died) in 1832.

William married Betty Seery in Rhode in 1852, they moved to Dublin and had four children (that I know of) there. John (1853), Mary (1855), James (1858) and Elizabeth (1863) - there may have been more, I just havent found any yet!!!

Hope this might ring a few bells for someone,

Gloucestershire / Wooton Subject - listed as birthplace on 1851 census
« on: Tuesday 09 August 16 23:28 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I'm having great fun trying to tie down by 3x gg father, one George Elliott. According to his 1851 census return form he was born in what appears to read Gloucestershire, Wooton Subject - I've attached the snip (I hope!!)

I have googled and Wotton under Edge comes up a lot but not Wooton Subject- anyone know if this was indeed a place or if I'm misreading it.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Hi all, the attached is a snip of a parish record for the marriage of Edward Clinton and Anna Mulholland. Can any kind soul tell me what the latin words after Edward's and the sponsor Michael Kennedy's names mean please.

Thanks in advance

Dublin / How do I know for sure if these are my ancestors?
« on: Thursday 03 March 16 16:05 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
Thanks to the good people in FindMyPast I finally after such a long time MIGHT have baptism records for my great grandfather and his brother (which in turn gives me a possible maiden name for their mother).

My question is, without knowing their mothers maiden name and having a variety of possible birth dates from various censuses, hospital admission, burial records etc, what do I need to do now to try to nail it down?


Dublin / Cant find family between two dates
« on: Tuesday 07 October 14 15:56 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I have a family living at 79 Meath Street at the time of the fathers death in 1868 (from death cert) - the next time I have sight of them is in 5 James' Street North (North Strand) in 1887 a year before the mothers death (Thoms)

I am only aware of three children but realise (and hope...) that there may be more that I don't know about.

The next time I'm in Dublin I plan on looking up Thoms for both addresses around both dates but am at a bit of a loss as to how to fill in the gap between the two years - any suggestions??

FWIW the family I'm looking for are McEvoy / M'Evoy  - father: William b. 1823 d.1868, mother Elizabeth b. 1821 d.1887, children John d 1916, James d.1939 and Elizabeth. DOBs are from death certs but for children have different ages on 1901, 1911 census' and death certs so none reliable.
I've pored over parish records for St Catherines, Meath Street for about 15 years prior to fathers death and didn't find any births or a marriage that looked connected to him..... my poor eyes were in bits after that  :D
