Yes, this is the same Laurence (changed to Lawrence in the US) Kinsella I am speaking about. I grew up just a couple miles from Leopolis cemetery. Dub Timmons was my dad, his mother was Nell Lawler Timmons, and her mother was Mary Kinsella Lawler, daughter of Lawrence and Bridget. We mowed that cemetery as kids and remember all the Kinsella graves. Our records show Lawrence passing away in 1899 and Bridget passing in 1912. Have you been back there? Who are your parents? I'm sure I know of your family and maybe have met some of them. My husband and I live in Atchison, KS with our three sons. We traveled to Ireland last July/August and did a lot of family research. Our great-great grandfather was an elusive guy, but we believe we found the townsland where he owned land near Gorey. It was called Tomnahealy, a little northeast of Gorey. My sister Trudi has done extensive research on the Dooley's from County Laois in Ireland also. We visited the Stradbally area where the Dooley's came from also on our trip. There are still many questions in my mind that I would love to know the answers to. My dad wrote a collection of stories from the life of Lawrence Kinsella that we would be happy to share with you sometime. Let me know if you are interested.
Thanks for replying.
