William Joseph CALLAGHAN & Mary MCDERMOTT
« on: Saturday 05 June 21 12:50 BST (UK) »
William Joseph CALLAGHAN's father was William CALLAGHAN, a Lightkeeper, and his mother was Catherine/Kate POWER. William Joseph was born 23 Sep 1871 on Tarbert Island, Kerry, Ireland. Mary MCDERMOTT was born 28 Sep 1880 at Skerries, Dublin, Ireland and her father was John MCDERMOTT, latterly a Publican, and her mother Margaret ELLIS. William Joseph CALLAGHAN married Mary MCDERMOTT on the 10th August 1908 in Balrothery, William Joseph a bachelor whose address was Galleyhead and Mary a spinster living at Skerries, Dublin.

The occupations on their marriage record are shown as just 'Business' for all parties, though William Joseph was also a Lightkeeper. The witnesses were Thomas MCDERMOTT (Mary's brother) and Monica MCDERMOTT (Mary's sister who later married Thomas CAHILL). William Joseph's father is shown as Henry when it should have been William. However, William Joseph and Mary's first child was born in 1910 at Skerries, his father's address Galleyhead and Mary's aunt Elizabeth CREAN nee McDermott was present at the birth.

I'm seeking any descendants of their children who include William Joseph O'CALLAGHAN born 1910 Dublin, John O'CALLAGHAN born 1914 Dublin, Kathleen E O'CALLAGHAN born 1921 and a possible 5 or 6 other children born after 1921 whose names are known.

Counties could include Kerry, Donegal, Galway, Cork and Dublin

You may have this-
Death of William Joseph 67 yrs in Skerries. John was the informant which may help you place him.

Ah, I should have put that in ;) but many thanks for looking for it! I also have Mary McDermott's death on 23 Oct 1958 at Skerries and her headstone information. It's hard to know how much information to include.

I was posting this when your post came so I will leave it for others to see.

Marys death (I would think) daughter in law, Bridget is the informant.

If this is new to you, you could look for a suitable marriage and then any children.

For William Joseph & Mary's son William Joseph O'CALLAGHAN born 1910 I have a possible death 13 May 1938 in Cork at Broad Street, Charleville, his occupation Clerical, age 27, single, died of TB. His brother John present at death. and for his brother John O'CALLAGHAN born 1914 a possible death 27 Jun 1950 in Dublin. If this was him he was single and a Postulant Noviciate S J when he had a fall and suffered a brain haemorrrhage and died at St Vincent's Hospital. I was told 'there was a monk in the family named John' If these are right, neither of them had descendants.

Thankyou re John, I've mis-typed that, I had him born on Tory Island. BUT you've found one I didn't have! Michael born in 1916 and that's great, thankyou so much! Though I have to go offline just now I'll certainly check him out later!
