  • Shelley:

    I did not find a civil marriage record for Frederick and Christina. We only have accress to civil birth records thru 1920 at the free site  I did a quick scan of the Dublin records from 1911-1920 and did not see a birth record for children of Frederick and Christina.

  • Hi Roger, I have something that was given to my grandfather by Matthew Patrick Cooney,I was hoping with tecnology I might after 3 generations of this item be able to get it back to his family.We are only the custodians. The 1911 Census shows Mary being 41 and living at home, so I dont think she married either, that only leaves Margaret ( Maigead) who was 26 in the 1911 Census. Would you have any information that maybe she married. I find it amazing that of Catherine Cooneys 6 Children 4 did not marry, that is hoping that Margaret married. I may have to go searching for John James Cooney in the USA and try to find out if he married. Other than that you would have exhausted all avenues of finding any family member of Matthew Patrick Cooney so I dont know what I will do with the item. Oh well I'm still going to be optomistic for the time being. Thanks Shelley

  • Shelley:

    Margaret married a John Weiand in 1913. John may have been born in Germany. See fourth record.…

    I did not see any birth records for children.

    By the way, see your other message. Another volunteer found the Frederick Cooney marriage record.
