red mail Crossmolina, Laherdane, Achill
My great great grandparents, John and Margaret Sharkey were from County Mayo. John Sharkey is believed to have been from the Crossmolina/Laherdane area in Addergoole parish but recent research by an Irish genealogist has him born in Galway city to Michael (Miles) Sharkey and Bridget Leonard. His wife, Margaret, who was also called Sharkey before marriage is believed to have come from Achill parish although British census info. gives her birthplace as Castlebar. John was born in 1830 and his father was called Miles Sharkey, a stonemason. He had a brother Peter Sharkey born around 1834 and believed to have come to England and then emigrated to America. Margaret was born around 1834 and her father was Francis Sharkey and family legend suggests that as he was a journeyman stonemason he may have settled eventually in Co.Roscommon. Recent research shows his wife to have been Celia Walsh who was born in Mayo. Francis died somewhere between 1845 and 1851 as Celia appears on the 1881 British Census as a widow living in Manchester with her children. John and Margaret were married in 1855 in St. Peter in Chains RC Church in Stoke on Trent, England and one of the witnesses was Pheoby Sharkey sister of Margaret. They moved around 1880 to the North East of England living in Darlington, Stockton on Tees and eventually settling in Spennymoor. Their children were: Jane Ellen b.1856, Mary Ann b.1858(my great grandmother), Margaret Pheobe b.1860, Miles b.1862 (all born in Hanley, Stoke on Trent)Edward Joseph b.1868 Darlington, Elizabeth b.1871 Spennymoor and Richard b.1874 Stockton. Any information on this family would be welcome.
