Also, connected to my Walsh family there Kyran Walsh b 1812, Mary b abt 1832, Ellen b abt 1835 all but Kyran immigrated to Philadelphia. Edward worked as a stonecutter in Phila.  Living next door to him was a Michael Walsh b 1825 who was a ship's carpenter he was married to Hannah O'Hara.  Edward, my gg-grandfather named 1st son John Michael (born Phila.)  Any information about this Welsh/Walsh family much appreciated.  Thanks, Pat

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I looked on the subscription site Roots Ireland and found three baptismal records in Thomastown RC parish for children of John Walsh and Jony Walsh. Not sure if the 1841 Edmund died young and they named the second child Edward. I guess they could have had an Edmund and Edward but unlikely. I was not able to locate a marriage record. I also did not find a baptismal record for a Kyran Walsh. I did not search for Michael, Mary and Ellen since I did not know their parents names.

    Ruppa is a townland in Columbkille civil parish just to the east of Thomastown civil parish.

    Let me know what questions you have.

  • Hi,

    I agree with Roger that it is unlikely they had a son called Edmund and also a son called Edward.

    This is the record of the death of Kyran Walsh, a tailor, in 1878.

    https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1878/020500/7193949.pdf

    There is a record of the birth of a Kyran Walsh at St. Canice's, Kilkenny City on Mar. 7 1812. Parents are Pat Walsh and Ellen Roche. I can't say if this is the correct family but you can view the image here.

  • I am also seeking info on a Walsh/Cullen family of Danesfort, Thomastown.  In March 1832 Walter Walsh married Catherine Cullen (per Ancestry Ireland, Catholic Parish Registers).  It mentions Danesfort & Woolengrange.  Michael Walsh was a witness.  My gr gr grandmother, Mary, was born to them in 1836.  Her marriage in 1861 St. Patrick Church mentions Glauntha.  I believe she had a sister, Alice, maybe born 1839 & a brother, Edmond, born 1833.  Names that appear as witnesses at baptisms of Mary's children:  Daniel Cullen, Alice Walsh, Eliza Walsh, Thomas Cullen.

    Thank you for any information you can find.

    Kathleen
