Shirley :

Hello and welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be doing the research on your question. Do you know where Patrick or Mary were born? Do you know when or where they were married? When and where was your grandfather born? Any and all additional information is helpful. Thank you, Shirley


They lived and were married in the same area. Rock of Dunamase. They were Roman Catholic so probably married in the parish of that area, but I do not know what it is called. Below is from the 1901 census. My grandfather was 7 in 1901 so born about 1896.

Hello Gail,

I apologize for the automatic emails requesting a rating for the answer that you have not received yet.


Patrick Connell was born between 1844 and 1851, probably in Stradbally Parish, County Queens, Ireland as that is where his wife and all of his children were born. He was Roman Catholic which makes finding a record of his birth doubtful. You would have to contact the Catholic Church in Stradbally and find out if they have birth registers for the time period.

Mary Anne Mahon, daughter of James Mahon and Maria Carroll, was born on 4 Nov 1865 in Stradbally, Queens, Ireland.

Patrick and Mary had six children;

James born abt 1884

Laurence born abt 1890

John born abt 1894

Winefred born abt 1897

Patrick born abt 1898

Daniel B born abt 1900, all of them were born in Queens, Ireland.
