Subject: RE: Meagher or O'Meagher
Hi Geraldine, Made a message of sending the message last night, put in your name and e.mail address instead of my own by mistake. Hope this will make sense of it. Regards, Angela.Hello Geraldine,|
Picked up your message. I don't think I can be of any help to you. I have tracked down birth records for my great, great, grandmother. She was born in 1812 to a John Meagher and a Mary Costelloe and is registered in the Fethard parish records. Also registered to the same parents are a John Meagher born 1814, a Maryanne Meagher born 1815, a James Meagher born 1821 and a Dan Meagher born 1824. I do not know anything about any of these except my great, great grandmother Ellen Meaghher. She married a Godfrey J. Greene sometime before 1831 as their first child was born in 1831. I have been unable to find where this marriage is recorded as it is not in the Fethard records. This Ellen Meagher died in 1845 and has a plaque erected to her in the Abbey church in Fethard. I would love to know if any of her brothers or sister married and if they had families. One of her brothers was a priest, I do not know which one and at the time of Ellen's death in 1845 he was a curate in Templemore.
I dont think any of this helps you in your search for your grandfather.
