... I'm looking for information on Michael j Kennedy, born on the 16th of April 1888 in Monivea, co Galway, ireland ...


Purely for information, despite what year/date of birth might be stated in subsequent records, Michael James Kennedy was registered as born at Monivea on 16 April 1887 - not 1888 (see link below):

And his younger sister Annie Elizabeth was registered as born on 6 May 1889:

And his older sister Margaret Charlotte was registered as born on 24 June 1885:

Hello, just looking for suggestions. I found a document for a windows pension for a Michael j Kennedy in New York 1924. The wife's name was Anna Kennedy. Wondering could this be our man. How would I find a record of marriage for this Anna and Michael?

The family think he must have died as he never made contact with anyone again. So this is just a shot in the dark

Can you post a link to the record? Or post all the information on the record. Did it say what battalion, etc. that Michael was with, etc.?

It might be a US Civil war pension, which would eliminate your Michael. I don't know if the US had pensions for WWI soldiers.

Thanks you but it wasnt a right match. Got their marriage cert and all details were correct except for his fathers name  :'( I thought I hit the Jack pot. I think poor Michael is going to remain a mystery  ::)
