Cork / Re: Edward Walsh Youghal Cork, Ireland

Lilaboc re your query. www.nationalarchives.ie Griffiths Valuation records has Edward Walsh South Main Street Youghal in 1853 House Office & Yard paying a Rent to Landlord name of Greene of Ten Pounds (quiet high in those times) This Edward Walsh was also the Landlord of 7 properties in Freemans Lane Off Friar St Youghal collecting rents from these tenants.. For Youghal Church records check www.register.nli.ie searchable by year not by name unfortunately.www.historicgraves.ie maybe for a burial place.
There is also in Griffiths Valuation another Edward Walsh in 1853 with 1 acre 1 rood 27 perches Placename is Rocklodge Youghal Lands

Thanks for the update Ballydw.  I know exactly what you mean when you say people rarely reply to messages.  I find that all the time especially with the dna matches.  I think most people have got these tests as gifts and they are not interested in pursuing things any further.   

I did some searching for you earlier.   Matthew had an older brother Michael from what I can remember born 1859 and I did go through the Nli for Whitechurch, Blarney to see if the parents had married there no luck for 1858/1859 . There is a photo of Michael on that site.   It seems that many of the family were born in Glanmire and some born in Carrignavar. 
Matthew's father John was born in Glanmire 15 April 1837 and his wife JOhanna Geaney was also born in Glanmire 24 Jan 1838.   Unusual that they were both Glanmire and then Matthew was born in Carrignavar. 

Thanks for the update it is always nice to hear how things work out.

As I failed to locate a death for Catherine Grandon Ryerson I looked at marriages in New York. I found a marriage in Kings County NY 16 July 1922 for a Catherine Grandon (did she revert to maiden name?) to a Edward a Wheeler. Has anyone any thoughts on this? Thank you

That is a different Catherine Grandon.

Here is that Catherine with her family in 1920.

1920 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MJ5P-RFD

There is a clipping in a 1925 Brooklyn paper mentioning Mrs. Edward A. Wheeler and Miss Charlotta Grandon (her sister).

=============

I think Catherine Ryerson died in New Jersey, 1918-1919. She was living in New Jersey according to Howard's WWI Draft registration. New York deaths are well covered for that period, and she is not listed, but unfortunately  New Jersey death aren't, and the death index isn't available until  after 1920.
THank you I guess I will have to assume that Catherine died 1918-1919 maybe after she had the child registered as McGuire in 1918

This may be the couple on 1901 and Johanna a widow on 1911 Irish Census

If the 1911 Johanna Coleman is the correct one it says on the Census 52 Years married which means you are looking for a marriage circa 1859. It also states they had six children
Thank you where is the location for these Censuses ?

Not that I am aware of Dathai but the Timothy Coleman details are correct location is Dunbollugue Carrinavar area. Also I believe sometimes the Geaney name can be spelled without the E thank you for looking.

When he registered for the draft in WWI he said he had a wife and child. The registration card is not dated. If he didn't marry Mae (Mary) until 1919, then was Catherine alive in 1918?

If he was born in 1893, he would have been required to register on 5 Jun. 1917.  However, an 1893 year of birth is off from the age he gave (23 years old) at the time of the 1912 marriage.  It could be a mistranscription of the marriage age, but thought it was worth noting.
Thank you for your input the mystery deepens regarding Catherine?
