Alice’s father: Michael Francis King


Michael Francis King was my maternal great grandfather of Irish descendant. His parents were Patrick King (1815-1880) and Hannah/Nora/Honor (Burke) King (1827-1896). They were married on 11 October 1850 in Castlegar, County Galway. Patrick was from Renmore, County Galway. His parents may have been James and Anne King. Hannah/Nora/Honor’s parents were Patrick and Nora Burk according to her death certificate. She was born in Kerry, Ireland and died in Braintree, Massachusetts on 13 May 1896 and was buried in Rockingham, New Hampshire.

Does anyone know any more of this history?

  • Michael:

    I looked for an Honor/Nora Burke baptismal record in Co. Kerry with father Patrick and mother Honor/Nora and did not find a record.

    Looking on the subscription site Roots Ireland, the only potential lead in the Galway West area was an Honor Burke Baptismal record October 3 1827 in the Tuam RC parish with father Patrick Burke and mother Honor Hely witnesses were a Richard Burke and Catherine Burke.
