Grace- Gorman

Seeking information to expand family tree. My great-grandfather, Edward Grace, was born on 8 April 1846 in Kilminick, Callan, County Kilkenny, Ireland to Michael Grace and Cate Gorman. Edward died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1894. His godparents' name was "Aylward."At the time of his death, he was married to Jo(Hannah) Meade and had two children, a daughter, Catherine and a nearly 7-year old son, Michael (my maternal grandfather).  He was also listed as a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernations. Trying to obtain additional information about Edward's parents' families as well as his siblings. My mother would have been Edward's granddaughter. Thank you-Marianne Bonner

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located the 1841 marriage record for Michael and Catherine. I also located three baptismal records for children: Patrick Mary and Anastasia. I did not locate the record for Edward but below is a link to the parish register. You may want to scan for his record and others.
