My great grandfather Thomas Killalea was born about 1841 in Galway. He married Julie Morris born about 1841 on 16.03.1874. There were 5 children -
Patrick born 1874
Julia Catherine born 1876
John born 1878 Tonroe, Headford, Galway - my grandfather
Bridget born 1880
Delia born 1883
Julia died in 1884 and on 03.02.1887 Thomas married Ellen Greally born 1860. There were another 5
Martin born 1888
Michael Joseph born 1889
Margaret born 1890
Thomas born 1891
Mary born 1893
Thomas died in about 1895. Ellen died in 1944 aged 84.
In the 1901 census I found Ellen Killalea, a widow and four of the children - from that I guess baby Thomas born in 1891 died young. Also found the same family in the 1911 census.
I am not sure when my grandfather John came out to New Zealand but I know Thomas and Delia arrived in 1901. Patrick followed in 1914.
Am hoping you may have some information. The registration district for the family was Tuam in Galwayl.
Please send me an email. Best wishes, Maureen.
