OhMyGosh 🤗. I’m not sure if this is the correct place to write as I have been going around I circles. My name is Kerry and I live in Australia. To date I have not been so lucky tracing this line of my ancestors but I think now I may be slowly breaking down my big brick wall. My 2nd gGrandmother is Johanna Callaghan and I’m now thinking I’ve finally found the correct one. She was born in 1845 Cappawhite, Tipperary to John & Honora? Dwyer. Johanna looks to have immigrated to Australia alone at the age of 22 and married a Joseph Gleeson. I’m hoping I have the correct family and site and am looking so forward to connecting with some of my family members 🍀.


Kerry 😘

  • Kerry:

    Where did you locate the 1845 baptismal record for Johanna Callaghan in Cappawhite? Do you have an exact date for the baptism? I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and did find a July 10 1853 baptism for a Michael Callaghan with father John Callagher and mother Honor Dwyer. The records was in St. Mary's Clonmel.
