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.

they will not follow you,

is standing in the clothes that you once wore"

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.

|Peadar||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).

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!
|George Hudson||Albert Keep - Date of Death|
Albert Date of Death was 30 Apr 1916 as inscribed on his headstone
|Peadar||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.
