Valerie Wright
Cowley Family and RHMS
Hi John - am researching the above family and found your info on Thomas Webster Cowley tombstone in the RHMS cemetery

I was wondering if you had come across this name elsewhere in connection with the RHMS - I know that his father & grandfather were enlisted in the 14th Foot and that his father Thomas Cowley born circa 1822 was a Drum Major at the RHMS, discharged from army 1861 but cannot find him or family from then onwards -except the above

thanks for any help you can give

Private Joe Flynn
I stand corrected again John- his date of birth is March 16th 1897- and he wasn't baptised in Emo as previously stated, he was baptised in St Michaels Church, Portarlington

Carmel Flynn
Private Joe Flynn, Emo, Laois
hi John, am private Joes grandniece and have uploaded photos on his grave.
My grandfather Patrick, his brother, was residing in Wexford town as a lodger and working as a ganger in the GSR. He was 23.
John another brother, had joined the LIfe Guards in 1908 so was in UK by 1911.
Can't find Mick or Joe in 1911 census.
Apparently they had 2 older sisters Margaret and Mary that we can't find in any census..
There is a memorial service for Private Joe in Emo ChUrch on Aug 8th this year and 53 of his grand nieces and nephews are going to be in attendance from as far as Canada, UK and rest of Ireland.

RE: Reuben Harrison Howell
You are very welcome. It was my pleasure to visit that amazing cemetery that was so well maintained. It was a surprise to see over 11,000 markers of Commonwealth graves. The CWGC has done a terrific job.
Thank you for your efforts to remember the Veterans.

RE: Donahan O'Dowd
You're welcome. If I can get better pictures on another visit when they've mown the grass, I may change some of the photos. As you'll see from the inscription and links I've had added, his parents are there too, along with what is presumably a cenotaph for his brother:'dowd&GSiman=1&GScid=2185991&GRid=148021238&

Thanks for your offer to take photos in Dublin. As you'll guess from my surname, it's likely I do have Irish ancestors, though we've so far not been able to find when or whence they emigrated. But if you do come across any Doran graves, especially before 1800, it'll do no harm to put them on Find A Grave just in case, though at this stage it's not worth going to any great effort or even taking the time to tell me you've done it.

RE: David Cowan Douglas
That's fine. Glad it is of use to you. Photos weren't the best views as I only had limited time down in Yorkshire (I live in Orkney) and was concentrating on getting the most images I could, rather than quality, and also didn't do any transcriptions on the spot.

I do have these photos at higher resolution if you would like them - email me at if you want them.

Thank you
Hello John,

I just wanted to leave a note to say thank you so much for all the wonderful work you have done over the past 6 plus years. You have just helped me find my sister in law's family. As I am in the states and it is now past midnight there I will have to wait to call her tomorrow. She will be so happy to have found them.
Warmest Regards,

Hello John,

Can you have this memorial marked as a cenotaph. He is actually buried in Ballaghaderreen as you suggest, though not in the cemetery which mem. 107198919 has been allocated. I have added another memorial and asked admin to merge as he is buried in Ballaghaderreen Old Graveyard aka St Mary's Graveyard.146011667

Hello, due to a Find A Grave web problem on 6/21/2014, your picture was posted on the wrong memorial (& mine was deleted).
Would you please remove the picture from the above memorial.
Thanks, Larry
