Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist, living in Dublin, Ireland.

I am particularly interested in the Pigott and Edgeworth families of Ireland and their descendants.
The graves of Irishmen who fought in WW1 & WW2 are also of interest.

"Forget the dead you've left,
they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"
Taken from
"It's all over now, Baby Blue" - Bob Dylan.

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

Page Lawrence Dickinson

Hello John,

Thanks for all your efforts. Did you do the Redford Cemetery based on a transcript of the cemetery records or on an actual visit? I'm looking for the wife of Page Lawrence, Joan Creagh, daughter of Augustine Fitzgerald Creagh and Diana Elizabeth Fitzgerald. I figure she must be there too since her husband and parents were buried there, but the only other Joans I find there don't match up at all. Joan Dickinson, née Creagh, was born c. 1882.

ian roy collie
Hi John im related to the Collies and like you do geneology part time. i have found many relatives in Mount Jerome and saw Ian Roy Collie on your site can you tell me is he related to a John Collie who was born Scotland. He came to ireland with his 2 brothers William and George (my relative) around 1890.T
hey are all buried in Mount Jerome so you can look them up.
My relative had George Collie the famous artist and his brother John had John Junior born 1907 and he moved to terenure. Could Ian be his son? any information would be great
Many thanks

Fedamore / Arywee Cemetery County Limerick
HI John, just a return note, from your reply, from almost a year ago! I have now located the cemetery where my Fitzgerald family is buried: Rochestown Cemetery. I have added the cemetery, and there's a website: where you can go to for photos of the Rochestown Cemetery gravestones (154), and a number of other cemeteries. Best wishes, Jim

Foot vault
Thank you John for putting the Foot vault in St.Matthews Irishtown online.

I am at present trying to find the burial place of my granduncle, Frederick J Foot (Geologist with the Irish Branch of the British Geologist Survey) who drowned while attempting to save life at Lough Key, Roscommon in 1867.

Sheila Foot.

Thanks John for the recent updates.

As there is no pull down menu for Irish cemeteries you may find memorial 122021678 helpful if you are working on Roscommon Graveyards.
