Catherine Kearns
« on: Monday 16 August 04 02:56 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me with finding my gg grandmother Catherine Kearns. The 1900 US census I have says she was born in Northern Ireland in Nov. 1863. Her parents were James and Mary Kearns. So far no one has been able to link her to my gg grandfather Thomas Birchall other than through this census, and they had 5 children together!!! James- July 1883, Thomas A- March 1885, Catherine- Oct. 1885, William-my g grandfather-Dec 1894, and Charles- April 1897. Do any of these names sound familiar?? She passed away on March 1, 1905 of pneumonia, in Pawtucket, RI. Please help. Thank you so much.

Hi Timm. I'm at a complete loss on any of the castle info. Catherine Kearns is my gg grandmother and for some reason I can't even find her anywhere until the 1900 US census. I'll see what I can find though. Did you try the Irish Geneaolgy website?

I just sent for my great grandfather's birth certificate from RI. I'm hoping this will give me a little bit more info on Catherine. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Still haven't come up with Catherine and Thomas' marriage anywhere, but I'll just keep writing 'til I do.  ;)
