Henry Patrick or Peter
I have an ancestor, Peter Henry dob 11 Mar 1844, who was living in Liverpool in 1876. He was a Boot Top Cutter/Boot closer. He may have been called Patrick Henry and moved to the Gorbals in Glasgow pre 1851. Father was John Henry, shoemaker. Patrick's siblings were Mary Ann (1835), Winifred (1837), Catherine (1839), John (1841) all born in Ireland. I am quite certain that Peter Henry and Patrick Henry are the same person-from DNA links. Patrick was also a Boot closer. The Scotland census only gives Ireland whereas the Liverpool census gives Sligo. Is there any way I can prove that Peter and Patrick are the same person?

red mail Patrick Henry Hale married to Elizabeth Rowan
Looking for a family connection in Ireland. My great grandfather, Patrick Henry Hale was born on Feb 2, 1858 in Connemara, County of Sligo, Ireland. This information provided by a family member who has since passed on. Patrick's father's name was Richard and his mother's name was Honora. Patrick married an Ellen Elizabeth Rowan. She was born on Dec 04, 1870 in what is listed as Mayo County, Ireland. They were married in 1888 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Patrick and Ellen ended up in Missoula, Montana, USA. According to a 1910 US Federal Census, Patrick came to the US in 1880. A search has found a Pat Hale, age 23, departing Liverpool, England and arriving in New York on June 12, 1880. Patrick and Ellen had the following children: Gerturde Helen, Richard, Mary, Florence, Ruth and Honora. Honora would have been my grandmother.

I have been searching for my two uncles John and Patrick and aunt Kate(Catherine) Healy for about 20years! They left Ireland about 1901 with their parents Terence and Catherine, and their sister Mary(who married Michael Brennan(and later, James Flynn)and younger brother James(my father)and settled in Burnhope, Lanchester, County Durham. They became miners.About 1910 my father and his parents returned to Coagh,Kilavil,near Ballymote. Mary settled with her children and second husband in South Shields. I have no idea what happened to Kate but she had some mental disabilty. John and Patrick were in South Shields in 1911 but emigrated to Long Island, New York. They found it hard to settle so broke ties with their family in order to do so. It is said that Patrick came back to England and died about 1941/2 near Doncaster but I've never benn able to confirm this. I'd be glad to hear any news.

If anyone can help with info on the following people I would be very grateful. John Garra/Gara(c1838) married Maria/Mary Higgins(c1838) in Ireland possibly between 1857 & 1860. Their son Patsey/Patrick was born in 1860. They moved to England sometime after that because their daughter Catherine was born 1894 in England. On all the English census entries Maria's birthplace is given as Sligo, Ireland. Whether it means the County or the town I don't know. John and Patsey's birthplace is given as Ireland. So far I have been unable to find a marriage entry for John and Maria. Can anyone help? My thanks in advance.

red mail Henry family in Sligo, 1816
John Henry, my great-great-grandfather, left Ireland for the USA around 1816. I have NO more information other than he was born around 1807.

red mail Stanley - Sligo
Seeking Stanleys based around Sligo/Roscommon borders early C19th/late C18th. Certainly appear in Kilshalvey in Griffiths and Kilfree in Tithes but in the absence of any others in the county, suspect they drifted up from Roscommon, perhaps as tenants of Viscount Lorton. Recurrent names include: Arthur, William, Thomas, Edward, Elizabeth etc (ie. English ones). Seem to be modest farmers (ie. land measurable in terms of tens of acres) but described in Tithes in Sligo and elsewhere as "Mr Stanley", so may have fallen on hard times after better times in Roscommon. Originally C of I but seem to have 'crossed the aisle', around 1850. Appear to have married into Irwin family, perhaps more than once. ANY info on ANY Stanleys pre 1860s welcome. Thanks.
red mail Shaw, Henry, Glennie and Kerr families - Carrowlustia, Calry
I am starting to research my grandmother’s ancestry in County Sligo and would welcome any assistance. Her mother was Sarah SHAW, born 1885 in Sligo. Sarah’s parents were Samuel SHAW (born c1855, and died before 1901 in Calry) and Mary GLENNIE (born c1845, died c1920 in Calry) who married c1885. Samuel and Mary had 8 children, William (c1875 – c1940), James (c1878), John (c1880), Sarah (1885), Mary (c1885), Thomas (c1885), Samuel (c1888 – c1940), and Robert (c1889). On the 1901 census Mary, described as a widow, is living in Carrowlustia, Calry with her children. My grandmother’s father was John HENRY who was born in 1876 in Sligo, and whose parents were James HENRY, born c1856 and died before 1901, and Margaret KERR who was born c1847 and died c1930 in Calry. John and Margaret had 3 sons, John (1876), Samuel (c1878) and William (c1881). On the 1901 census Margaret, described as a widow, is living in Carrowlustia, Calry with her 3 sons. I am told, but bearing in mind this story has come via possibly biased parties, that John HENRY, being the eldest son, was expected to inherit the family farm, but that his younger brother had TB and wouldn’t have been able to make a living in the outside world, so the farm went to the younger boy. What I do know is that John emigrated via Liverpool where in 1906 he married Sarah who was also from Sligo (but I don’t know if they left Ireland together or met in Liverpool) and they had a daughter there in 1910, then 2 more daughters in New Stevenston by Motherwell in 1918 and 1920. Any assistance with this side of my family would be very welcome, and although my research is at an early stage, I’ll happily share what I have.
