Thanks for the interesting info on the Sussex Lodge, it is a pity that my family were not mentioned.
We visited Ballinasloe in June 2016 at the request of some possible cousins with the same surname who live nearby. We were shown the old lodge building, and the bakery was not seen by us . As the old building is after the Bank of Ireland building at the end of Main Street it does seem to be a bit far from the centre for a bakery to be placed?
We also visited the Creagh cemetary and saw the graves of William Henry Sharpe's father Joseph Sharpe and his grandfather Richard Sharpe.These graves are close to the old ruin building. William's brother Stephen is also buried nearby. The grave of Richard Sharpe has a rather grand headstone which states that he was the quartermaster of the Galway Regiment. This was most probably a Militia. Along side of this grave is the headstone of William's father Joseph and hs mother Isabella nee Masters.
Would you know of anybody who could find out more on these people and the "Galway Regiment"?
Thanks again for the info on the Lodge. Regards Richard.
