Is the date of James Rowan O'Beirne's birth correct?
I have been doing some research on General James Rowan O'Beirne who was born in Ballagh, Roscommon, Ireland. In your findagrave site http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=6631867 you have him listed as been born in 1844. Today I looked at the United States census for 1900 and it listed James as been born in September 1839. This date would seem more accurate to me given his high ranking in 1861 as a republican fighter in the Civil War. I realise that '44 is the widely held belief, but I believe that to be wrong now. I am a journalist writing a piece about James' life. I am interested to know your source ie did it come from the headstone at Calvary cemetery?
