James Dowd
UK Censuses of 1871 and 1881 list my gggrandfather James and wife Ceciley Dowd in 2 Skinyard, Doncaster.James is not in 1881 so presume he died between 1871 and 1881. James Dowd , their grandson and my grandfather ( age 8)is listed in 1881 as living with his grandmother Ceciley at 2 Skinyard while his father , also James b. 1842,,and mother, Catherine(nee Clark), are shown as living in Golcar UK.Believe that Ceciley died in 1883 at which time James and Catherine moved to Jermyn, PA , USA to work in coal mines.There was a daughter Margaret b. 1837, to the elder James and Ceciley shown in the 1851 census when they were in Latchford , Cheshire , Lancashire.Tried to find burial records in Doncaster for the elders but the old cemetery records did not list them. They were Catholic and born in Carrick-on-Shannon , Ireland.Would like to know were they buried in Doncaster and where and is there any record of Margaret.When they moved to USA, they restored the O' to the name and are shown as O'Dowd here.
