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.

"Forget the dead you've left,
they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"
Taken from
"It's all over now, Baby Blue" - Bob Dylan.

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

If you are looking for a death in Ireland after 2006, can I recommend

Thomas F. Hazell (#119467451)
This seems to be the same person as Thomas F. Hazell (#133072633). Maybe you can ask the owner of that memorial page for a merger?

RE: Peggy O'Riordan


John Pat and Peggy on the headstone are spouses. He was born around 1920 and I think she was similar.
Margaret Rowland (nee O'Riordan) his sister married Charles Rowland in England and is buried there.
There were 2 more sisters: Maria who was born abt 1914 and died in millstreet abt 2000. And Helena who married an o'Sullivan and who died abt 1990 I think.

RE: Private Christopher Barrett
I transferred his memorial to you (hope that was O.K.) so that you can link to his sister.
Thanks for helping!

William J. Dilworth
Hello John ~ Thank you for the beautiful job you did in creating the memorial for W.J. Dilworth. He is my husband's great grandfather. I never expected to find so much information within five minutes of starting research on this line! I truly appreciate your efforts.
