James and Mary Mackey

I have found death records in Croom for James Mackey in 1876 at the age of 63, and of Mary Mackey, presumably his widow, in 1880 at age 66. I am trying to find out more about them since they may be my great great grandparents.  My great grandfather, Joseph Mackey, name his parents as James and Mary; he lived in New York City for about 40 years and married Bridget Guiry from Newcastle West.   Any information would be most welcome.

  • Barbara:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Do you have the actual death records or just the index records? The reason I ask is that Croom was also a registration district which encompassed a number of parishes. If you have the actual record, what was the townland where they lived?

  • Thank you, Roger. I haven't been able to find the townland yet, but the record I have, from Roots Ireland, lists the address as Skule, attached.  Do you have additional guidance?  Thank you..  -- Barbara

    There is no Skule in Limerick. Could be Skagh in Croom parish or Skool  in Fedamore parish.

  • Hi Barbara,

    Skule is a townland in Fedamore,near Croom. It would come under the civil registration distrist of Croom. It can also be spelled as Skool.
