I agree but can't read what it says after Scots church.

Could be, would bit above "House" be priest's initials?

I was about to suggest that - think that was near, or off, Mary's street

Hi all. Few handwriting queries below if someone wouldn't mind taking a look (sorry for the lack of hyperlinks but can't post them as a new user).


The 2nd entry is confusing me as it looks like it reads Clara, Meath. I wouldn't expect that person to be in that county and then there's the issue of there being no Clara in Meath.

civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1925/09148/5308589.pdf


The 5th entry looks to be the maiden name McCroghan (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm struggling to find anything solid for this surname, are there any variations of it (tried, McCrohan, McCroghen, and without the 'Mc')?

civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1883/02729/2003611.pdf


The name pops up again here (6th from the end) and I also can't make out who the godfather is.

Thanks.

Clara, Meath - that's what it looks like to me too.

McCroghan - check she was not a widow which can involve two surnames

Godfather Dionysius (Denis) McCrohan

Thanks.

Clara in Offaly is in the Diocese of Meath maybe they mistook it for the county. Clara is very close to the border and has a railway station where the father may have worked.

Thanks.

There are other McCrohans in the area at the same time. This time spelt without the G.

Thanks all.

Didn't occur to me that she may have been a widow but I've had a look around and nothing stands out. Though I did manage to find another child of theirs who was born in 1876.

But nothing prior to that year so I had a look through marriages from 1870 - 1876. Very few Patrick Sullivan's married Bridget's in that period.

Thanks for clarifying that it's that Clara and the name Dionysius.

I can see 4 children to that couple on rootsireland between 1878 and 1888. Will PM you details, so as to not take thread off topic.

Looking at the last entry (right-hand side page) here.

Father George McMahon and mother Margaret/Mary? McGeary. Anyone know what the first name of the child would be? The superscripts confuse me.
