Michael Kelly 54th Foot / 3rd Foot
« on: Wednesday 31 January 18 18:30 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Would anybody have access to the following Military records, my g.g.grandfather Michael Kelly served in the 54th Foot/3rd Foot he was born in 1840 in Dublin, his service number was 481 (I got this from one set of records that i obtained but there looks to be others with this name and number).

I recently got my g.grandfathers marriage cert and his father Michael is listed as deceased this was in 1905 (Dublin), his mother is listed as Mary Carroll also deceased.  I am looking for information on this branch of the family.

TIA

No, she lived in the same place, it's not very clear but probably the Curragh Camp.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.
