Parish / District:RAHOON
Husband MichaelWard Address:Dangan Denomination:Roman Catholic
Wife EllenHeffernan Roman Catholic
There are 23 Michael Wards in Griffiths Valuation in Galway but none in Rahoon
The only Irish Census which has Galway records before 1901 is 1821; it has 148 Wards but once again none in Dangan or Rahoon!
No luck in burial records on roots either - nothing in Rahoon & only Tuam C of I are there - no R C!
Last try was Memorials of the Dead Galway & Mayo cd which has the following from ARDBEAR Cemetery:
In loving memory of
who died 4th of November 1892
aged 48 years
also his beloved wife Mary
who died 20th April 1898 aged 50 years
their son Michael J Ward
died 3rd June 1940
Ardbear Cemetery is situated about one mile south of Clifden and mostly served the Catholic community. The quantity of large ornate high cross memorials indicates the increasing wealth of the Catholic merchant class from c. 1880. The older part of the graveyard is overgrown with mature trees, which may obscure earlier memorials centred around what appears to be a holy well.
The current Irish phone book 118.ie/ has 38 Wards in Galway so perhaps a mail out to them might get a better result.
