Looking for any further information regarding Robert Sheridan born 16 January 1859 in Dublin, Dublin, the son of Elizabeth and Charles. He married Anne Gaffney on 5 July 1892 in Cavan, Cavan. They had two children during their marriage - Kate and Charles Sheridan. He died on 16 August 1926 in Cavan, Cavan, at the age of 67.  Also looking for further information about the parents of Robert (Charles Sheridan and Elizabeth Donohoe - believed that Charles possibly married a 2nd time to Ellen Kelly)

  • Hi Bernard,

    I will see can I help you any further.  I looked at Robert's marriage in 1892 and he states his age was 37 which fits with the date of birth that Patricia has included above.  On this marriage cert it states that Charles is dead and that he was a shoemaker, this is  from the civil records on https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie  

    I was unable to find Charles death that I could identify because I am unsure as to where he may have been living, nor could I find a marriage for him to Ellen Kelly, but that may just because the records are not transcribed or missing.  Do you think that Robert was the only child to Charles and Elizabeth?  I did find a Mary Sheridan born to a Charles & Mary in 1865 & John in 1869, but in these record he is listed as a blacksmith, the names are common, so unless you have further information it is difficult to be sure this is the same family.  Do use the records available on https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie and on https://genealogy.nationalarchives.ie, you may be able to widen out the family tree which would take you back further.  It might be worth taking out a subscription for even a short term on https://www.irishnewsarchive.com and look up the Anglo Celt, sometimes you will find court cases, sales, funerals etc that may give you a little more about the family, particularly if they belonged to societies.
