Dear Cousin:-
When I visited you last summer I promised to send you a copy of the record prepared by Sister Edna Marie of the descendants of the Coady family. You
are I presume interested largely in the descendants of James Coady one of
the four brothers who came out from Ireland. He is of course your great grandfather and my grandfather .
In the record made by Sister and typed, it would appear that she obtained further information and this she wrote in by hand, and in red ink. I have copied these additions on the copy I am sending you. The original with the red notations I have sent to a cousin in Boston, Miss Clara MacDonald. She it was who did all the typing over the years for Sister Edna Marie. I thought, therefore she should have the originals .This Clara MacDonald in case you don't know is the daughter of "Aunt Nellie" as I called her, your grandfather's sister .
It occurs to me you may be interested in the four brother immigrants all of whom settled in the Margaree area, and if you are I shall be glad to send you a summary that I have prepared, largely from notes left by Sister.
I am keeping well and if I live another two weeks or so I will be celebrating my 9lst birthday.
Hope you are both keeping well.
With every good wish

Later, James and his family moved to the Margaree area where they took
up land adjacant to the homes established by John and Martin Coady. It is
believed that James and family arrived about 1840, and were commonly known as
the "Miramichi Coady's". James established the first Post Office in Big Brook.Thus the nickname "THE POST".

Kilcash Castle once occupied by Lord Castlehaven, a noted Confederate Catholic commander in the 1641-52 war, wrote his Memoirs here. The early 18th century song Cill Chais mourns the death of Margaret Butler, Viscountess Iveagh. Margaret Butler married Colonel Thomas Butler of Kilcash Castle after the death of her first husband.

Above left the Romanesque doorway to the site of an ancient monastic foundation which had associations with St. Colmán úa hEirc. In the middle ages the church passed to the Knights Hospitaller. In the churchyard is the tomb of Archbishop Christopher Butler (1673 - 1757). The church is just a short walk from the castle.SEE PHOTOS IN SCRAP BOOK.
Caoine Cill Chais / The Lament for Kilcash - Melody -

Cad a dhéanfaimid feasta gan adhmad?
Tá deireadh na gcoillte ar lár;
níl trácht ar Chill Chais ná ar a teaghlach
is ní bainfear a cling go bráth.
An áit úd a gcónaíodh an deighbhean
fuair gradam is meidhir thar mhnáibh,
bhíodh iarlaí ag tarraingt thar toinn ann
is an t-aifreann binn á rá.
**********
Ní chluinim fuaim lachan ná gé ann,
ná fiolar ag éamh cois cuain,
ná fiú na mbeacha chun saothair
thabharfadh mil agus céir don tslua.
Níl ceol binn milis na n-éan ann
le hamharc an lae a dhul uainn,
ná an chuaichín i mbarra na ngéag ann,
ós í chuirfeadh an saol chun suain.
***********
Tá ceo ag titim ar chraobha ann
ná glanann le gréin ná lá,
tá smúid ag titim ón spéir annis a cuid uisce go léir ag trá.
Níl coll, níl cuileann, níl caor ann,
ach clocha is maolchlocháin,
páirc an chomhair gan chraobh ann
is d'imigh an géim chun fáin.
************
Anois mar bharr ar gach míghreann,
chuaigh prionsa na nGael thar sáil,
anonn le hainnir na míne
fuair gradam sa bhFrainc is sa Spáinn.
Anois tá a cuallacht á caoineadh,
gheibheadh airgead buí agus bán;
's í ná tógfadh seilbh na ndaoine,
ach cara na bhfíorbhochtán.
****************
Aicim ar Mhuire is ar Íosa
go dtaga sí arís chughainn slán,
go mbeidh rincí fada ag gabháil timpeall,
ceol veidhlín is tinte cnámh;
go dtógtar an baile seo ár sinsear
Cill Chais bhreá arís go hard,
is go bráth nó go dtiocfaidh an díle
ná feictear é arís ar lár.
***************** Now what will we do for timber,
with the last of the woods laid low?
There's no talk of Cill Chais or its household
and its bell will be struck no more.
That dwelling where lived the good lady
most honoured and joyous of women
Great earls made their way over wave there
and the sweet Mass once was said.
*****************
Ducks' voices nor geese do I hear there,
nor the eagle's cry over the bay,
nor even the bees at their labour
bringing honey and wax to us all.
No birdsong there, sweet and delightful,
as we watch the sun go down,
nor cuckoo on top of the branches
settling the world to rest.
****************
A mist on the boughs is descending
neither daylight nor sun can clear.
A stain from the sky is descending
and the waters receding away.
No hazel nor holly nor berry
but boulders and bare stone heaps,
not a branch in our neighbourly haggard,
and the game all scattered and gone.
******************
Then a climax to all of our misery:
the prince of the Gael is abroad
oversea with that maiden of mildness
who found honour in France and Spain.
Her company now must lament her,
who would give yellow money and white
--- she who'd never take land from the people
but was friend to the truly poor.
*******************
I call upon Mary and Jesus
to send her safe home again:
dances we'll have in long circles
and bone-fires and violin music;
that Cill Chais, the townland of our fathers,
will rise handsome on high once more
and till doom --- or the Deluge returns ---
we'll see it no more laid low.
*******************
tr. Thomas Kinsella.

From "Londubh an Chairn"

Being Songs of the Irish Gaels, London, 1927

1. Where now is the sheltering wildwood
That we in our youth have known?
Oh gone are the groves of our childhood
And even the birds are flown.
It was there that dwelt the good lady
There the sweet bell was daily rung,
Great Earls came over the wave there,
And the deep-intoned Mass was sung. 2. No wild-goose is heard on the lake now,
No wild-duck now haunts the stream,
The eagles their eyrie forsake now,
No bees hum in day's bright beam.
No voices of birds now entrance us
As they once sang at evening's fall,
No cuckoo is heard in the branches
To utter his slumb'rous call.
3. To Mary I pray, and the Saviour,
May our exiles return again,
With dancing and bonfires blazing
And violins' sweetest strain.
That the Castle that now is so humbled
May rise with strong keep and wall,
And till earth into ashes has crumbled
In ruin no more may fall.

Cill Chais (Kilcash) was the great house of one of the branches of the Butlers near Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, until well into the eighteenth century.

The Castle of Kilcash is situated at the foot of Sliabh na mBan, not far from Kilsheelan. It was one of the chief seats of the Butler family. A note in Duffy's "Poets and Poetry of Munster" states that the song is the composition of a student named Lane, who was educated for the priesthood by Lady Iveagh, the deagh-bhean (good lady) of the song. The song in its entirety runs to seven stanzas of eight lines each, and may be found in the "Poets and Poetry" with a metrical translation by Mangan.

Death: 1832 in Margaree N.S.
Note:
Upon arriving in Nova Scotia abt. 1819, after stopping in Newfoundland for a
while, John settled in Cape Breton N.S. the Margaree area. A number of Irish
immigrants from Tipperary, Wexford, and Waterford had already located there,
and taken up most of the land. As a result, John located on an upland area

settled was referred to as "Coady Mountain" and " Coady Settlement".

Note:
[Sykes-051001.FTW]

John, the eldest son of Michael Coady and Elanor Fitzgerald, arrived in the Margaree Harbour in 1819. Prior to his arrival he stopped in Newfoundland for a while.

Because most of the Margaree Harbour area had already been settled by other Irish Immigrants, he decided to go upland, about 3 miles back from the river valley. The lands that he claimed became known as "Coady Mountain". Later, after more of the Coady Family immigrated to the area, the lands became known as "Coady Settlement".

John was married twice. His first wife had died in Ireland, prior to his emigrating to Canada. He then married Catherine MacDonald, known as Katie. She was from the Antigonish area. They had 10 children before his death; the youngest, Mary, being only a toddler when he died.

John died as a result of drowning, along with his younger brothers Martin and Peter, in the Margaree Harbour on November 23, 1831. Because of inclement weather, their bodies were not recovered until January. On January 16, 1832, a Funeral Mass was held, and the bodies were buried in St Michael's Cemetery in East Margaree, Nova Scotia.
