a Michael Morrisroe death in 1901 listed as age 60 wife Elizabeth. could be a typing error.



Certainly looks like 60 years.    #78

Hello rathmore and Kiltaglassan

Thank you very much for the websites you posted.  I have had a look at them but unfortunately I have drawn a blank so far.  Every new site I search is coming up with nothing for him.   

I already have information from the Public Members Trees on Ancestry and I know them to be correct. 

Michael Morrisroe 1818-1901 was my 2 x great grandfather but I cannot find his parents.

Hopefully something will turn up.

Regards.

The deaths of Michael and Elizabeth seem to be from the next generation.

1901 census

birth of daughter Bee (Bridget in 1901)
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1890/02426/1903463.pdf

Marriage 1866 Michael Morrisrowe and Bessey Crafton

The ages at death would then be more appropriate.

If you have another thread there is probably relevant stuff on it....

Are people now looking for stuff that has already been found?

Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Hello heywood and Hallmark

Thank you for your replies.

Unfortunately Michael Morrisroe and Bessie Crafton/Crofton are not my relatives.

My relatives were Michael Morrisroe who married Elizabeth Padden, her parents were John Padden and Catherine Clark.

I thought My Michael Morrisroe's father was Patrick Morrisroe and was looking for his mother this time.

I have had another thread on this which was clarified so I was wanting to go back another generation.

I don't want to be a nuisance and to be duplicating searches but as Hallmark says perhaps the other thread has the answer I am looking for but I am missing it.   

I will go away and study it some more.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Regards.

Hi Liz,
 
Yes I realise that you are researching Morrisroe/Padden but I think you have quoted the Morrisroe/Craftan deaths.


Michael was born in 1818, died 1901 Templevanny area.  He married Elizabeth Padden born 1818 died 1910.  The family were RC.

We are just trying to help.

Hello heywood

Thank you for your reply.

I know that you all at Roots Chat try to help and I could not have found out the information I have gained to date without the help of each and every one of you.  I appreciate it very much.

I don't want to cause any confusion and was not aware that I had posted the Morrisroe/Crofton deaths.

It seems that there were a lot of Morrisroe males with the same Christian names in a very small area and it is very confusing.

Perhaps I have got as far back on Michael Morrisroe my 2 x great grandfather's parents as I am going to be able to get.

I am going to leave my research on that side for a while and give you all a rest.

Kind regards and thanks to you all.

Regards.
