Foot vault
Thank you John for putting the Foot vault in St.Matthews Irishtown online.

I am at present trying to find the burial place of my granduncle, Frederick J Foot (Geologist with the Irish Branch of the British Geologist Survey) who drowned while attempting to save life at Lough Key, Roscommon in 1867.

Roscommon Graveyards

Thanks John for the recent updates.

As there is no pull down menu for Irish cemeteries you may find memorial 122021678 helpful if you are working on Roscommon Graveyards.

correction Polgar
Hi John,

I have edited the date of birth on the entry that you have for my brother, Laszlo Polgar, buried in Bohernabreena Cemetery. His date of birth is 24 December 1949, and not 1950 as showing currently.

Many thanks for your work.

The photographs are outstanding. Outstanding. Thank You.
The script is challenging. I'll send you an email shortly.

Never mind the first part. I'm just now looking at the photos.
I had no idea there were separate tombstones. Thanks so much.

De Valera
Where are you getting the different years from ?

The ones I have come from Terry de Valera's autobiography. They're also the dates that correspond to information in a number of de Valera biographies published over the past 45 years.

Here's something you might be help with. His daughter Dr Máirín was a Professor of Botany at UCG for many decades and is buried in Galway - somewhere. Likely in a graveyard in a Gaeltacht, but I've never found the location.

Hynes: Desmond and Thurlough (Terence)
Hi John,
Thank you so much for adding the information re my two uncles, Des and Thurlough Hynes. There is another Hynes sibling, the youngest, my mother, Ita Veronica (known as I.V.) now I.V. Morefield, and at the age of 89 living in Bedford, England. Mom lost touch with uncle Thurlough (Terence) when he moved to Canada, where he later died, He had at least 4 children, my cousins, now probably grandparents themselves. I would very much like to trace them, if at all possible, while Mom is still alive. Could you help me in this??

By the way, our grandfater, Francis Hynes, was himself a stonemason at Glasnevin Cemetery, which is how the family grave comes to be there.

Many thanks again.

Catherine Redmond Carroll
Hi John, I see you have included census information on the record of Catherine Redmond Carroll in Templeogue. I note you have two Grand children listed by the same name (Alice). This is incorrect the last entry should read Anne age 11 years as per the 1911 census. Anne Redmond McKnight was my grandmother. Refards. Gerry McKnight

RE: Carroll and Redmond families
Hi John thanks for message. I didn't directly message Vern regarding the Redmonds, but I did edit the information. Will this be sufficient or do I need to make direct contact. I did many edit regarding the Redmonds as 5 of John and Margaret children are buried in Bluebell along with their spouses and children/grand children. Regards Gerry

Pvt Mark Phibbs
Hi John,

I thought you might have some knowledge of what I am seeking to find out.

Do you know where I could discover details on British soldiers of WW1? I have looked around, but I think there is little available as much of it was destroyed in WW2.

I am particularly interested in Mark Phibbs. He is a member of my family.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

Deidre McMahon Kelly
I am interested in getting more information about Deidre McMahon Kelly. I think she may be my pen pal from long ago. She is buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery. The Deidre I wrote to lived in Dublin and would have been born in 1958 plus or minus a couple of years. I am just now trying to find her and hope this isn't the person I am looking for because I want to find her and finally meet her after 40+ years which would mean another trip to Ireland which I would gladly welcome because I love Ireland so. Any information you can help me with would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ever so much Leah Randall Stanek from Minnesota, USA

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
