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,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

Sarah Costello nee Dolan
Hi John,

I am currently researching the genealogy of my motherís side of the family. My mother's maternal grandmother was Sarah Costello nee Dolan from Carrick-on-Shannon, whose father was Peter Dolan whose profession is listed as a baker. I believe Sarah was the sister of Maria Mulhern who would have been the mother of John Mulhern. I've come across other information that connects John with the Costello's. I was fascinated to come across your information on John Mulhern and his death in 1916. I'm hoping you can provide me with some further information on the Costello's, Dolan's and Mulhern's.

Kind regards,

Dear John,
I am so sorry that I have copied your submissions of the Hogan memorial. I didn't think to look up and see if they had been entered already. I also don't know how to undo it.

So sorry, I promise I will always look before I leap now!

Dear JOhn
I tried to write you at Pcogass but it came back undeliverable. I am looking for graves at St. Peter's Churchyard, don't know if it is Montrath or Portlaoise.

Could you please contact me at in order that I may send you a Leinster Express article from 1960 in which an American cousin went to Ireland to recarve gravestone of his Russell parents. I am looking for this gravestone which was reported to be standing in 1960. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Katherine Davis Moore
great granddaughter x 2 of Benjamin Cullen of Maryborough, born about 1825 and died after 1909.

Richard Meekins
Thank you, John, for your visit and photos of the burial location for Richard Meekins. It is a shame there is no marker for him. But, he never married and was the last of his immediate family to pass. He spent much of his adult life away from home and family.

I have added his photo and the document of the US State Dept reporting the death of an American Citizen to the memorial page.

Again, thank you so much.
