McCARROLLs settle in to the wine and spirit business in 1912

8O We have traced this story for a couple of years and have new information. When we learned that Agnes GAFFIGAN had joined Michael J. McCARROLL in marriage in Dundalk it had been assumed that they had made their home in Fintona where he had a public house and was a wine and spirit merchant among ot...

Re: GAFFIGAN - McCARROLL marriage, 1912

Today, 1 November 2009, Tony posted this on another board: "... (By) the way, there was an Agnes Gaffigan who arrived at Queenstown, 26-july-1912,aged 23,aboard the White Star Line ship "Celtic". Her occupation looks something like stenographer,the word ends with grapher anyway." This may answer som...

Carroll/McCarroll ancestors from Tyrone, a query answered

Today, I received an inquiry about a 2007 posting about my family. This lady stated that they have some Carroll/McCarroll ancestry “…but from the Parish of Fintona, not the parish of Clogher as you state your family is from.” They she went on to say: “…The research I did…if my research is correct, w...

Re: Carroll Family

8O Bill, I made that suggestion to look at the McCarrolls because nearly everyone of them from that area, in that time period, used the Mc. As you know, there were two septs at least, and the one around County Tyrone appears to be a McCarroll. At least I have never seen one that was an O'Carroll fro...

Re: Carroll Family

Bill, I can see that you are still at it. You may recall that you sent me the Corps' documentation some time back. I would start by trying to find the derivation of his name, which most probably was McCarroll if he came from that area. I've had a computer crash since you sent me that material (actua...

Re: McSorley introduces us to the Pork Market

:D It is good to see that someone else is interested in Patricia McSorley's efforts to shed some light on the 1930s to 1950s. I have been a little bit lax in looking at this Clogher History site but the reason why was because of a computer crash that really took all my efforts away from the day-to-d...

Re: McSorley introduces us to the Pork Market

The exerpts were from "A While With Your Own Ones." It was authored by Patricia McSorely of Newtownsaville but I think that she would agree with me that it was more of an editor's job than that of an author. As Patricia stated, it was part of the great oral tradition of the Eskra's St. Patrick's cha...

Re: McSorley introduces us to the Pork Market

Hello, it has been a long time since I visited this site (a crash left me out in the cold and I am just finding some of the hidden things that were culled). I saw your recent post and want to reply, but just to acknowledge it until I can find the book. It has been a year since I put it down. The McS...

Re: McCosker and McCusker of County Tyrone

Regarding a Jane McCusker that we found while searching ancestral backgrounds in County Tyrone, unfortunately the only reference was one that is contained in an Ulster Historical Foundation In Depth Search Report that I had done a number of years back. The report stated: "The one connection we have ...

McCosker and McCusker of County Tyrone

I have had the pleasure of using the National Library – Enaclann – OMS collaboration, “Ask About Ireland”, website and its Griffiths Valuation and the place name search tool: http://griffiths.askaboutireland.ie/gv4/gv_start.php. There is a problem, however, because this website is still under constr...
