  • This was where my ggfather was born in 1865. Apparently it remained in the family for many years. James immigrated to Queensland, Australia, aged 19 and joined his uncle in the police force in North Queensland. I have written about what I know of his life. I remember him well. I was fortunate to be given some early photos sent from Ireland to the family out here. Moate Hose is now a B&B and is actually in Naas,not Blessington.

  • I believe the Sargent family lived here in the 1700's.  Would anyone have any information about that time.

  • Sally,

    Your ggf, James Sargent born 11th March 1865 at Rathmore is on my genealogy records.  James and I are 1st cousins 3 times removed.  James father is Joseph Sargent b.1832, son of William Sargent and Martha Bingham.

    I am descended from James Sargent b.1818, son of William Sargent and Martha Bingham, Joseph's brother.

  • It seems like the family kept it for a long time from 1970s. Both the image's age and quality are evident. The photo's color indicates that, at this  geometry dash lite point, only under ideal circumstances can images be preserved for as long as possible. According to what I could gather from the comments, James moved to Queensland, Australia, when he was 19 years old, and he joined his uncle in the North Queensland police department.
