Hi. Have you worked with I have found tons.

You will need to have one date or year in order to limit the hits.

There is one listed, born around 1770, married 1795 to "Mrs. John Chaplin"(that is kind of odd) from Durrow, Laoighis, Irland, one son listed: Joseph Cantwell, christened 1808 Durrow, Laoighis, Ireland

Hope this helps.

Hi I have a line from today going back to James Cantwell. The James Cantwell I have married Mary Drennan (I notice you have Brennan, my tree was done by someone else so I can't veify anything)I have 3 children listed, but not your 3...Mary Cantwell 1863, Richard Cantwell 1856, and Robert Cantwell 1858, my James Cantwell needs to be a bit younger than yours, maybe he is one of the three children you don't have listed? My line has Mary Cantwell marrying Robert Lynch (born 1858)they had 7 children. Margaret May Lynch 1906-1929 married David Cameron Milne, they had 4 children by thetime she was 23years. Margaret died a few weeks after Robert Milne was born in 1929. She was buried in an unmarked grave because she was Catholic and the Milnes weren't. David Cameron Milne remarried and the children Leonard David Mine 1926, Ronald Milne 1925, Lawence Kenneth Milne 1928 and Robert Milne went to live with other relatives as new bride didn't want them. Leonard David Milne married Lesley Isabel Waugh, they had 5 children. Leonard Milne is my husband grandfather so I have a lot more details if you can work out if there is a match here. I hope this helps.

Dear Kylie, Interesting indeed. Would love to read submitted journals by you on your and your husband's genealogy. Always keen to hear of more CANTWELLs.

This is very long distance reply but hope it helps. The Cantwells in clogh were also small pub owners. Cantwell is an old name from the village and there are very few Cantwells left in the area. Brennan is the tribal name of kilkenny and nearly everyone in the county is related to a Brennan. It might be good to google clogh or castlecomer mines on you tube and you will see a video made by local clogh publican John Coffey who has been archiving images of clogh village and the now closed castlecomer mines over the years. I think there is one image of the old Cantwells pub in clogh in the 1800's on that u tube site. The local priest Father Tobin in St Patricks Church Clogh may help in identifying any baptism records of your ancestors. The mines are now historically remembered in the Castlecomer Demesne or also known as Castlecomer Discovery Park. Sadly like many men who were miners dying from the miners disease is still common today. The coal mines closed in the late 1960's. i am Siobhan Geoghegan and my grandfathers and dad worked in the mines - Bryan O Neill and Paddy Geoghegan. My grandmothers father would have hailed from Tourtane near Clogh - he was Michael Doyle - my gran died last year Jane O Neill aged 96 - she was one of 16 and 2 of her sisters emigrated to Australia in the 50's. I imagine my gran's father would have known many of your relatives in the mid to late 1800's. Hope this helps a little.
