  • Mary Ann:

    I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and located the baptismal records for Patrick and six siblings: Mary 1824 Joseph 1826 Patrick  baptized September 1 1828 Michael 1831 William 1834 Ellen 1836 Anne 1839. When Anne was baptized they lived in Clonmore townland in Killavinoge civil parish.

    Edmond and Johanna married in Templemore on September 11 1821.

  • Mr. Roger... 

    again, thank you for your valuable information... I am planning on coming back to Ireland in April 2022,  Iam  looking for any living Russell family members? and am coming to Templemore to hopefully see if I may meet any of them?? Is there any chance you would know or how I would proceed?  My late Aunts met 3 Russell Siblings in the 1990's in Ireland. I know 2 of the siblings never married, the other was married.  I do not know their names.  

    Also,  I noticed you are from Roscommon?  from Templemore I was going  to Roscommon. My Great,Great Grandfather, Thomas S. Murray was born in County  Roscommon in1833 and died in Lawler, Iowa,USA on 1/8/1897.  He married Mary Byrne,born 4/7/1833 in Carrowkeel, Elphin Roscommon and died on 5/14/1900 in 

    Chickasaw County, Iowa, USA.  May I ask if  you might know any Murray's or Byrne's in Roscommon??

    My Father was born 1921 in Lawler, Iowa.  Many of my emigrant relatives settled in Lawler, Iowa, USA from Ireland.  I thank you again Mr. Roger and Hope to hear back from you.  Warmly, Mary Ann Murray

  • Hi Mary Ann!

    I actually live in Maryland. My grandmother was from Castlemore Parish in Co. Roscommon. I'm not familiar with any Murrays or Byrnes in Co. Roscommon. Let me know if you need any assistance with your Co. Roscommon ancestors.

    Here is a link to the online Irish phone book  This site only covers land lines. If you check the Residential Tab and then search Russell in Co. Tipperary, you should see over 30 records. There are 3 entries for Russells in the Templemore area. We discourage our members from calling but you should send them a letter and see if you hook-up. If you are unsuccessful, get back to me and I will see if we can assist you further.
