Clonbeg Church Cemetery Aherlow
Thank you for the memorials and photographs from this cemetery! I'm in the U.S. so it is unlikely I will ever be able to visit this cemetery. You captured 2 of my direct ancestors as well as some collateral lines.

Philip Francis Little - last child
I just received an email from the Dublin Cemetery people identifying the grave of the last child of Philip Francis Little. She was named Margaret Mary Cuffe, widow of Laurence Cormac Cuffe. I have added her gravesite and plot location. Her memorial number is 179389669.

I also have the birth dates of her father-in-law and his father, both named Laurence Cuffe. You have their graves linked at Glasnevin. The younger b 1840 (d 8-Sep-1886). The elder born 1799 (d 23-Jun-1868). I have linked these back to Laurence Cormac Cuffe.

I have now linked PFL to all of his children (13) and to all of his siblings (10).

Kellys in Dean's Grange
Hi John - thanks so much for posting those photos from Dean's Grange. Great quality - much appreciated!

As you're working on WWI graves also - here's a question - have you noticed that many (if not all?) of the WWI graves in Ireland have been replaced with new headstones similar to those you find in France/Belgium? I've seen ones with a gray type of granite in Carlow. I've also seen them in the UK, in the south of England, in a white type of granite. It's understandable in the UK but surprising in Ireland. Is it CWGC funded? Keep up the great work!

Confusion in Place family infromation
The information associated with the family grave of John Alfred Place in Glasnevin is confusing and incomplete:
John Alfred married Mary C Moran.
Among their children (all born in Corbally, Co Limerick - I have examined their birth records) are:

Mary Madeline Place born 20 July 1885. She married 30 May 1906 to Lt. Alfred C L Theobold at age 20 (noted in the register). I believe she moved to England and is not buried in Glasnevin. She is not listed among the siblings.

Madelina Mary Place (almost identical name!!) born 27 Dec 1187 (but civil births database has this erroneously as 1888). She never married, died 12 Oct 1960, and is buried in Glasnevin. SO, her birthdate needs correction.

Correction to George Buchanan Virtue
Hello John, I would like to ask you to make a correction to the Find A Grave Memorial #131174192 for George Buchanan Virtue & his wife Helen Mary Clarke in Clontarf Cemetery, Dublin. You have it noted that George's father was Irvine Virtue and his mother was Christiana Marshall. This is the wrong George Virtue. George Buchanan Virtue who married Helen Mary Clarke stated on his marriage record that his father's name was Robert. George Buchanan Virtue, son of Robert Virtue and Anne Buchanan was born on 11 Dec 1871 according to his birth record. George & Helen had 8 children, John Clarke Virtue, 26 Apr 1902, George Buchanan Virtue Jr. b. 6 May 1904, Edith Mary Virtue, b. 13 Jun 1907, Eva Magdelen Virtue, b. 23 Mar 1910, Mary Alice Virtue, b. 7 Oct 1912, Josephine Virtue, b. 20 Jul 1914, Robert Virtue, b. Dec 1918 & Ethel Teresa Virtue, b. 20 Nov 1922.

Francis Henry Browning (id=156046453)
Hello John,
I have been contributing to the Imperial War Museums digital records of those who were involved in WW1 in "Lives of the 1st world war". I have set up a community to remember those who were first class or test cricketers and have included Francis Henry Browning. I am trying to find images to help illustrate his life story and found your images on this website. Would you be happy for me to use the images you added to his memorial? I would, of course, credit you as source of the images.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Eugene John McSwiney grave
hi john,
we think the grave you identified as that of Captain Eugene John McSwiney is incorrect. The plot for that McCarthy family (his mother's family) is directly across the path.
