Phelan circa 1814 -1844
« on: Friday 14 December 07 03:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I'm searching for Bridget Phelan born circa 1843 in Co. Waterford.

Bridget married a James Delaney in the RC Church, Oberne, District of Wagga Wagga NSW, Australia September 1863.

Mother and Father are:
Mary Fitzgerald and Thomas Phelan both of Tramore, Co. Waterford circa 1812-1815.

Other children (Bridget's siblings) could be:
Denis 1842, Mary 1845, Thomas & Catherine 1848, Ellen 1850, Michael 1852 and Ann 1857.

Bridget could not write at the marriage ceremony and made her "Mark" .
Thomas is listed as father and no mother's name is given on the marriage certificate.
On Bridget's Death Certificate, her mother is listed as Mary Fitzgerald.

Any help -PLEASE - to trace these G Grandparents.

Maureen

Does Bridget's death certificate not list the names of both her parents, etc.?
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
