Carlow / looking for birth of Matthew O'Neill
« on: Saturday 13 April 13 17:39 BST (UK)  »
according to the 1901 census of poolbeg st dublin matthew was born in carlow circa 1838/1840 i have no specific area ,he also had a brother samuel o'neill who was killed age 24 by a scaffolding plank on a church in dominick st in 1859 i have no birth for him either,the family seem to have come to dublin around 1846 as i have found his siblings being baptised on irish genealogy from then on till about 1857.his parents were Maurice O'Neill and Elizabeth Burke. Elizabeth died 1865 in her 50s and Maurice died 1881 in his 80s according to death certs which i know are not always accurate. I am estimating their marriage date on samuels age about 1834.The great Fenian John Devoy wrote about Matthews involvement in the Fenian movement upon matthews death in 1904 in the Gaelic American in which he said matthew was born in dublin in 1840 but he said that his father Maurice a Young Irelander was from Carlow. Matthew was my greatgrandfather,any help greatly appreciated.All names mentioned were stonecutters by trade.
