John Byrne born circa 1842 Ireland
« on: Tuesday 29 January 19 20:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi all. I have John Byrne on 1861 census aged 20, soldier born Dublin, listed with 2nd battalion, 19th regiment in Portsmouth, Hampshire. I have him married to Elizabeth Rogers in 1879 and 1881 census lists him as Army Pensioner, aged 40. Ideas please on where to look for the intervening period and any service records. Thanks
