My great-grandparents John Kelly & Mary Keogh were married 27/6/1871 in Saggart church, their children were christened there and they lived at Lugg in Saggart.   After last child in 1882 I can find no mention of them anywhere.

  • The eldest son (my grandfather) Andrew went to Canada when my mother was 2 and died in US in 1944 never returning to Ireland.  I cannot trace what happened to his siblings after 1901 or his parents at all.   Kelly's still live at Lugg and in Saggart and they cannot help as my mother and her youngest brother were bought to England by her mother and the other siblings were abandoned.

  • Hi Linda

    As you say, by 1911 those mentioned on the Census of 1901 aside from Andrew, are not recorded in Lugg. You could see (through rootsireland.ie/familysearch.org or irishgenealogy.ie if any of the children married) though this would be a difficult task as the girls would have normally married in their home parish and it seems according to what you say that they didn't. You could use the Newspaper Archives to see if there is any other mention of the family:
