Notes:

1. Michael Foran is also found in the records as Michael Forde. Most of the children in the records correspond with known children of Michael Forde and Mary Ahern. There are a couple of extras that probably died in infancy. Michael was a brother of my great great grandfather, Patrick. William Foran was probably Patrick and Michael’s brother.

2. Simon McCarthy married Mary Forde. Mary was a sister to my great great grandfather, Patrick Forde. They had twin sons, Simon and Patrick. We know they had at least two others, Michael and Hanora, and possibly a fifth, Timothy or Thomas. This Simon must have died because Mary married John Clifford before she immigrated to the US. Not being a common name, the records for Simon McCarthy and Mary Lane were interesting to me so I copied them down. Could this have been a cousin? Forde godparents were most likely siblings of Mary.

3. Patrick Walsh is my great great great grandfather.

4. Patrick Forde is my great great grandfather.

5. Michael Forde is also Michael Foran

6. Michael Foran marriage - this is also Michael Forde.

7. Elizabeth Walsh is my great great grandmother. Raises the question of James’ relation to her. He is not listed as a brother in the records, but I have found other records that were transcribed incorrectly and written down incorrectly.

8. Mary Forde’s marriage to Simon McCarthy. Mary was a sister to Patrick Forde.

9. This is my great great grandmother who is a godparent to her sister Johanna’s child. There were 6 girls in the family. I only found records for three of them.

10. This child is listed as Johanna in the parish records, but the civil birth registration is very definite that it is John. Three other children were born to Patrick and Elizabeth before they left Ireland, but there are no records for them: Michael, Anna and Mary.
