Nicholas White (Abt 1833 to 1913).
I believe that my second great grandfather, Nicholas White, lived at the Wexford Workhouse and died there on 21 October 1913, a widower, at age 80, as listed on the death register. He was a farmer and lived with his family in Taghmon parish. His wife was Catherine Walsh. Their children were born in the Ardenagh Great townsland according to birth/baptism registers, from 1861 (Margaret) to 1878 (John), and baptized at Taghmon.
Two of his daughters, Mary and Catherine White, emigrated to America. Mary emigrated sometime prior to 1898, when she married Joseph Gaetze in Anaconda, Montana. Mary had no children. Catherine, my great-grandmother, emigrated in 1906, and met her married sister in South Dakota. Catherine married Adam Knapp in 1910 in SD and they had one daughter, my grandmother, Margaret Knapp, in 1915.
The story told by my grandmother is that the two girls went to America, and the two boys stayed back in Ireland. I think one of the brothers who stayed in Ireland was the youngest son, John, who appears at age 23 on the 1901 census. The other may have been Thomas (1863) who I believe is the Thomas White listed as having an older brother, Nicholas, living with him in 1911 on the census in a nearby townsland. The ages match up for this to be the son-father pair. We do not know what happend to Nicholas' two surviving sons, but have a postcard from an Anastasia to John White in our family records as the only clue. The front shows the Ferrycarrig bridge in Wexford.
I would love to know more about my second great grandfather Nicholas White's family and his other descendents in Ireland, but have been unable thus far to find his and Catherine Walsh's marriage register record, nor marriage records for the sons.
