John CULLEN/Johanna MURPHY married 1884 Rathangan
« on: Monday 09 October 06 20:21 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I'm looking for information on my grandfather's family in Wexford and have hit a bit of a brick wall. My grandfather, Thomas Joseph Cullen, was born in Duncormick in 1889 and emigrated to NY in 1909. This is what little I know of his family:

Father: John Cullen (dob unknown
Mother: Johanna Murphy (dob unknown)
They were married in 1884 in Rathangan Parish. As far as I know they remained in Ireland. They may have also had a daughter named Marg but I am not certain of this.

Paternal Uncle: James Cullen (b 1869)
Emigrated to NY in about 1885. Married Margaret Crowley (b. 1871) in Ireland in 1890. My grandfather lived with his Uncle James upon his arrival and until his marriage in 1929. Margaret's brother Daniel Crowley also emigrated to NY in about 1904.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Have you tried getting a copy of the marriage certificate from the Record Office . It should hold further clues!!
do you want the address?

I did find the address and the form to do that, thanks.  I've just been waiting to get a little spare change to pay for it.   ;)

Hi,

The only sibling of Margaret that I know of is her brother Daniel who came to the US in 1904.  I haven't been able to find any siblings in Ireland so far.  Sorry!

Don't know if you're still around.
I wonder have you narrowed the birth place of Thomas Cullen in Duncormick by getting his birth record from GRO.
I have the following civil reg. record which may be of interest...

Jane Cullen, married, 80 yrs, died Gurtens, Duncormick, 1865, Nicholas Cullen present at death...

If you want the full record, give me a shout.

Hi Rachel,

I'm still around.  :-)  I do have Thomas' baptism certificate and he was baptised in Rathangan.  I would definitely be interested in looking at the record you have.  You never know what may prove to be helpful.  My e-mail is (*)
.

Thanks for your reply!
Shari

Hi Shari

The townland of Gortens is in the Civil Parish of Duncormick, within the catholic parish records of Rathangan. So maybe this Jane Cullin is relevant.
Good luck
