"Looking for NOLAN / SCANLON of Ballyduff Ireland"

Query by Bloomfield

I am researching my grandmothers family. Catherine Nolan was born in Ballyduff on 12 June 1884 her parents were John Nolan and Mary Scanlon.

On checking Irishgenealogy.ie I found 3 of her siblings - Ellen (Ellie) born 2 Dec 1875, David born 5 Feb 1878 and Patrick born 9 March 1887 - all 4 were Baptised in Causeway Parish/Church/Congregation. With further checking the 1901 and 1911 Census I also found Michael born about 1890 and Mary born about 1893 - the 1911 Census states that John and Mary had 10 children and 8 were still alive - I haven't been able to find the other 4.

Catherine emigrated to Australia in 1902. Ellen (Ellie) married Thomas O'Carroll in March 1903 and had 3 children, the first died before 1911,the other 2 were - John born about 1906 and Michael born about 1909. As for David he doesn't appear on the 1901 or 1911 census with the family and apart from his birth/baptisim date that's all I have for him. I have found decendants of Patrick's family - they have only been able to help with that line. I believe Michael (Mick) and possibly a sister emigrated to Ohio USA shortly after 1911. Mick had a son who was in the DDay invasion, he survived the War only to die in a car accident.

I have found a John Nolan born 29 June 1844- Ballyduff - his parents Jeremiah Nolan and Ellen Pierse (Pierce) and Mary Scanlon born 18 Feb 1851 - Ballyduff - parents William Scanlon and Mary Fitzmaurice. I have also found a John Nolan and Mary Scanlon were married in 1875. This info seems to fit in with the other dates.

Would appreciate any information on ANYONE in this family.

Thank you
