John Dowd, 1838-1842 - 1909, Boyle, Roscommon, 14th Foot Regiment
« on: Thursday 01 April 21 13:57 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I have a part brick wall. I'm looking for the mother's name of my great great grandfather John Dowd and possibly any siblings he had.

He was born in Roscommon around 1837-1842 - his father on his marriage record to Catherine Tansey is listed as Patrick Dowd, a Labourer. On the 1901 census he is listed as being 63 years of age, making him born in 1838/9 & on his death record in 1909 he is listed as being 67 years of age making him born in 1841/42. He served in the 14th foot regiment, his pension record below

Pension record
John Dowd 42 yrs born abt  1837
Birth Place:Bogle, Roscommon
Pension Admission or Examination Date: 11 Feb 1879
Regiment:   14 Foot
Rank:   Sargeant
Regimental Number:   1483

Bogle is likely to actually be Boyle.

His army file is viewable on FindMyPast but I'm not seeing any family information https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=GBM%2FWO97%2F1943%2F090%2F001&parentid=GBM%2FWO97%2F1943%2F354200
