James harrison was born abt 1799 Clare Ireland and He Married a Mary Bolton of ireland but i cant seem to find there marriage certificate on there marriage.

James died 9th febuary 1887 in Ireland so i am asuming he died maybe in clare.

  • Hi,

    The attached may be of interest.

    Subscription site has a record of the death of  a James Harrison in Tulla which shows 1888 as the year of death. Unable to find the record on Irish Genealogy!

    1847 and 1849 record a James Harrison in Miltown Malbay and Ennistymon.

    Tulla Church of Ireland records may have be able to help.

    There are a number of reports in the Clare Journal which I will check out later.

  • Further to previous post, a Patt Harrison is recorded in the Tithe Records in 1826 in the townland of Tyredagh Upper, Tulla.  A James Harrison and a Martin Harrison are recorded in the same townland in the early 1850's - Printed 1855.

    In the Will of John Harrison, parish of Kilnoe, there is mention of a Mary Bolton who is his sister. Copy of this Will - 4 pages - can be downloaded at subscription site John Harrison appears to have married a Johanna Walsh in May 1853 and died in April 1855

    - Executor Sale - See Clare Journal - May 1858 (Not 1861) Column 2 - attached

    Could this "Mary Bolton" be the person you are seeking?

    She apparently married a "James Halpin".
