General Rosas tried to conscript Lennon - he refused and was immediately shot dead in front of his wife. She returned to Ireland with her dau. She married again, this time to Peter Sheridan of Edgeworthstown. They returned to Arg. leaving Ireland - they never saw one another again.One of their children Molly Sheridan married Bernard Fox whose people come from Kenagh and who was a cousin of my first cousin's wife ie Jack and Kathleen Donlon, Meeltenagh, Moydow - who told me this story. Have we hit the nail on the head? Best wishes , Luke
