Joseph Manifold & Mary Breslin Arklow
« on: Monday 27 February 12 22:54 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on the lines of Joseph Manifold and his wife, Mary Breslin, both born in 1848. I believe they were both born in county Wicklow, married in rathdrum, lived in Arklow where their son William was born April 22, 1873. The had 10 kids and relocated to Minnesota in the late 1800's. I believe Joseph's father was William Manifold, but have no further info about him. I don't know of Joseph's mother. Mary's father was Daniel Breslin, her mother was Catherine Gray. I found reference to a Daniel Breslin born 1824, died 1874 in Rathdrum, which is where Joseph and Mary were married and possibly grew up. We have trace our lines to this point, and are trying to get beyond. Any help would be much appreciated.

A good place to start would be with the marriage of Joseph and Mary, and there's a possible match on the BMD Index that could be them, although the firstname of the bride is missing.
 
  Name:   Joseph Manifold
  Registration district: Rathdrum
  Event type: Marriage
  Year: 1870
  Volume : 2 / Page : 1010

  Name : Breslin
  [same references as Joseph]

Rathdrum district cover a large area of Co. Wicklow including the towns of Rathdrum, Kilcoole, Newcastle, Rathnew, Redcross, Newtownmountkennedy, Arklow and Wicklow town.

A civil marriage cert from the GRO would show further details, such as places of residence for the bride and groom, father's names, and occupations

see : Introduction to Irish Records
        Ordering Certs from GRO Roscommon
        Details included on a Marriage Cert

Thomas and Margaret seemed to live at 19 Cuffe St from 1937 to 1957 or later as some of the electors registers for the 1950s/1960s are missing,they had about 6 children up to 1951

If this is Thomas - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBGR-PMP - then a  possible death to follow up:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FTRW-1MX   

Is this them in 1911?

The census return says they are 4 years married. Struggling to find a marriage yet.

Joseph Manifold and Mary Breslin had a daughter Mary Josephine Manifold born Dec 1879 in Arklow Co. Wicklow she died in January 1935 in St Paul Minnesota. Mary Josephine Manifold married Englebert Jurgens Johnson who was born in Madison Wisconsin. They had at least one child Charles J Johnson born May 1905 in St Paul Minnesota. Hope that helps.
