James Walker
« on: Thursday 14 January 21 12:03 GMT (UK) »
I have found details of a death for a James Walker 72yrs Carricknaveagh. Widower ing Jane Johnston daughter 9n 9th April  1919.
Also marriage details for Jane Walker to Thomas Johnston 4th Dec 1908 B/Boro.
In the 1911 census Jane & Thomas in Greaghclaugh.

My problems are that I can't seen to find James Walker in either of the census.
I can't find a birth for Jane.
Would someone have a look for me thank you.

Think this might be James in both the 1901 and 1911 census living with son Hugh.

James 1901
Residents of a house 2 in Drumbar (Skeagh, Cavan)

James 1911
Residents of a house 21 in Tullylorcan (Canningstown, Cavan)
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Cavan/Canningstown/Tullylorcan/345504/
Tullylorcan townland
https://www.townlands.ie/cavan/clankee/knockbride/canningstown/tullylorcan/

Only about a mile separates the two townlands.

Jane in 1901 census gives her age as 21, which was an underestimate.

https://www.townlands.ie/cavan/clankee/bailieborough/bailieborough/lisgar/

Actually born in 1877 at Drumbar, which gives age as 23 in 1901.

Younger brother Hugh born in 1883, also at Drumbar.

Laura I am trying to research this gentleman as he has in the past had his surname recorded as Waller.
I am researching Waller families in Cavan.
Do you know any details about his parents?
I have sent you a pm.
Thanks
