You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Many thanks to all for your replies.  My ancestor is indeed Joseph E Withers born at Mount Shannon and his father was John Withers the tailor mentioned in the Sligo Champion, thanks for that information, not seen that before.  Violet of the Birds Nest who I've just found out about was John Withers' granddaughter.  I'm pleased to receive all this information, thanks again

Hello, thanks for your messages.  Yes you are right, two men named John Withers married their own first cousins.  It is confusing especially when they have the same name.  You've confirmed that my research is right!
