Looking for Dyer's from Legatinty Co Roscommon
« on: Monday 29 May 17 22:08 BST (UK) »
Hi Guys.
I have found someone who I think is my great grandfather. A James Dyer born in Legatinty on 06/06/1879. I am fairly sure I have found the same person passing away around 66 years later on 11/01/1944 in Ballinasloe Mental Hospital.

Was wondering if there was anyone out there perhaps related to the family that could help piece some things together or even give me an idea of where I might get any records for the hospital?

Thanks
Tammy

Medical records are sealed for 100 years so any record of his admittance and stay in the hospital will not be easily accessible for a while

Under the FOI act you maybe able to apply for his records through the HSE if they exist

James DYER died of myocarditis LINK
This is not a condition that would suggest he was admitted for as it is a heart condition

I think this is not my great grandfather then.

Perhaps you guys can help? My great grand mother was Margaret Carry. She married my great grand father James Dyer in Jan 1903 in Birr. I cannot seem to trace back much with them.  Hop you guys can help

This is a LINK to their marriage record
noting Margaret's name is spelt CARRIE and that she signed her name CAREY!

James DYER's father was named John

edited to add
LINK to Margaret DYER on 1911 census
The four children were: LINK
Dec 16 1903 John Christopher b. Eden, Co. Offaly
May 05 1906 Mary Elizabeth b. The Knock, Roscrea
May 29 1909 Maggie b. The Heath, Roscrea
Jul 02 1910 William b. The Heath, Roscrea; he died Sept 29 1911

I think that this is James and son John in 1911 - shown as DWYER LINK
at 3 in Heath (Ettagh, King's Co.) the address of three of the births

This may be the death of Margaret DYER in 1922 aged 40 LINK
She is described as a "wife" implying her husband was still alive

I cant find any birth/death records for him. Although on the census link that you sent me that does look like that would have been him.

He's not the same Dyer though that died on 11.01.1944 in Ballinasloe though is he?

I presume that this is the daughter Margaret LINK
She married in 1939 and her father is not shown as deceased at that time, however not all registrar's noted this
What it does show is that the family was still in the area in 1939
