I dont have a lot of information on my Irish ancestors but here goes--Patrick must have died before 1901 as he is not included on the 1901 census return I have from Ireland, Mary is a widow and head of the household with children Bernard 30, Maryanne 25, Thomas 23, Lizzie 21, Patrick 18 all unmarried all farmers sons and daughters, from information I have been given from relatives they were probably pig farmers. Their address was Cahanagh, Clongesh, County Longford. I have baptism records from Newtownforbes for Bernard 22 July 1860 Maryann 5 Feb 1867 Thomas 4 July 1874 Patrick 27 Jan 1881 I dont have a Lizzie only a Rose 15 Aug 1876 The ages vary quite a bit so I would imagine the census ages are guesswork there were other children who were not on the census form Bridget 25 Jun 1869 Catherine 19 Sep 1864 James 6 Aug 1862 and John born approx 1859. John is my 2 x Gt Grandfather I dont have any records for him as the church he was baptised in burnt down in 1860 and all the records were destroyed. John and James came across to England and John married Sarah Ann Fitzpatrick 10 Sep 1881 in Manchester I have traced the family through Sarah and through Johns brother James by talking to James` grandson Johnny unfortunately Johnny died in 1993. Beyond this I know very little. I am trying to trace them on the 1881 and 1891 census returns but have had no luck so far.
If anyone knows where the building or farm was located or details of the family I would be grateful for the information.
