Patrick and Sarah Curran had 7 children. My Grandmother Mary Curran came to America at the age of 16. The family had other children named Laurence, Michael,Bridget, Mark, Annie and Margaret. The 1901 Census gives “Residents of a house 4 in Ardmore (Skannive, Galway)

  • Curran Family:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I think I located the correct marriage record for your family. There was an 1874 marriage for a Patrick Curran and a Sarah Connelly/Conneely which appears to be the correct record although in the 1911 census Sarah indicated that she was married 40 years which would make the marriage year around 1871. See link below for the civil marriage record which shows where they were living and the names of the fathers of the bride and groom.

    I found baptismal records for two more children on the subscription site Roots Ireland but no record so far for Mary. I will get back to you later.

    Having trouble locating a baptismal record for Mary. Searched the free site www.irishgenealogy.ie from 1875-1885 for a birth record with no success. Also, searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and did not find a Mary Curran with father Patrick and mother Sarah. What year do you believe she was born? Is it possible that she was baptized with a different given name?

    Tried searching again focusing on 1885 and did not find either a church record or a civil record.

  • Mary Curran was born May 14, 1885. Birth registered in the District of Roundstone No 2, Superintendent Registrar ‘s District of Clifden, County Galway.

    I hope this is helpful. I think the the Catholic Parish is Moyrus, Co Galway where the children were baptized. Michael, Laurence, Bridget, Mary, Mark, Annie and Margaret. Parents were Patrick Curran and Sarah Curran, formerly Coneeley of a house 4 in Ardmore, Skannive, Galway

  • I think I figured out why I could not find Mary Curran’s birth records. There is a birthdate for a Patrick Curran for May 14, 1885. Same parents and then I find a baptized date for Mary for May 28, 1885. Mary’s birth certificate that we have has 5/14/1885 as her date of birth. I think she and Patrick were twins and he died shortly after birth.

  • Hi, is there any connection/relation between Sarah Connelly/Conneely and my 3rd great grandfather Fritz Connelly? I've hit a brick wall when it comes to researching my Irish ancestors Fritz Connelly, his wife Catherine Walsh, and their daughter Anna Connelly born 1860.

  • Hi Paul. My name is Mary Lynn Edwards. My Grandmother Mary sister of Mark came to the USA at the age of 16 to work as a domestic in the Boston area. My email is williambrown851@comcast.net. It’s the same as my Husband’s. If you contact me I will have some information I uncovered. There is a Johnny Curran that lives in Ardmore townland who is a cousin. Met him last years when my husband and I went out to the Immigrant Commemoration Center and went to the Cemetery in Mulrous where some of our relatives are buried.
