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.

they will not follow you,

is standing in the clothes that you once wore"

RE: The Cobbe family in Coolbanagher Churchyard
Hi John,

You raise a little issue in your post that is worth exploring.

My Cobbe ancestors were of French Huguenot extraction, living in Emo for a few generations since the early 1700s.

I found their deaths and burials in the Coolbabagher burial records, in the care of the RCB library in Churchtown. However, as with many of my earlier ancestors, there is no headstone, as there most likely were no funds to pay for one.

Do you think deaths or burials should be recorded on the Find A Grave website, where no physical headstone exists, to specifically mark the resting place?

Interested in your opinion.

Nigel O'Connor.

RE: Herbert Carroll
Hi John
Great work on the site and the graveyards. Yes Herbert did attend the Royal Hibernian Military School. My older siblings would remember more than I would in terms of dates etc. His father was in the British Army and died very young and his stepfather was in the BA too.

I have sent the links on the site to all my siblings and they may be able to supply more information.

Best regards

Dear John O'Grady,

It was indeed interesting to read what you wrote about my father. The website was brought to my attention by my grandson Kevin Walsh. Sometime I would like to chat with you as would my sister Beatrice as we were not contacted re this mostly good history of our father.

RE: John Reynolds

Greetings From Chicago ! Many thanks for your kind message, regarding John Reynolds, my grandmother's brother. My parents visited Ireland in 1974, and took the picture of the Reynolds' gravestone, but did not record the name of the cemetery. I have added St. Mary's to my other Reynolds' family members.

I do not have any information for the cemetery, the parents of my grandfather, John Joseph Fitzgerald, are buried. (Find A Grave Memorial# 106420498) Do you know of a cemetery in the Townland of Arywee, County Limerick, near Ballyneety, where my Fitzgerald family members might be buried.

Best Wishes, Jim

I have now learnt that his mothers name was Catherine and he had a brother and a sister yet to find his fathers name.
thank you John .
