I am trying to locate the burial places, probably around the area of Kilderrig, Ireland of my husband's family.
His 2nd Great Grandfather was Patrick HOARE b.1824, married his 2nd wife, Catherine (Cate) AHERNE in 1856.
They had 9 children between 1856 & 1873, apparently all born at Kilderrig, so I guess that is where Patrick & Cate's graves may be.
Their son,James HOARE b.1859 emigrated to Australia & married Annie DOWNING b.1859(in Shanagarry, Ireland) in 1882, had 9 children & died in Babinda, Qld Australia in 1928.
Hoping someone may be able to inform me about any cemeteries (Catholic) around Kilderrig, in Ireland, as we will be visiting there this year.
I am trying to find out the story of my Great Grandfather, Friederich George MENNER b.1857 in Tanunda, South Australia.
His parents were Carl Wilhelm b.1823 d.1888 and Anna Agnes Amalie BECKMAN b.1829 d.1922. They had 5 other sons & 5 daughters.
He married Minnie NENKE in 1880 at Kapunda, S.A. and they lived at Tanunda & Davenport, S.A. he was a Baker by trade.
He & Minnie apparently had 6 children, Minnie dying 2 weeks after the birth of the last, (who only lived for 7 months) There were, it would seem, only 2 children that survived,- my Grandfather, Roland Julius MENNER, and (?)George Robert MENNER.
Roland b.1887 went at 3yrs of age (at the death of Minnie) to his maiden Aunt Katie NENKE & Uncle, Patrick Julius NENKE and was raised by them in Greenock, S.A.
It would seem that his older and only surviving sibling, George Robert, born 2 years earlier in 1885, must have gone -following Minnie's death, to the MENNER relatives ?? I do not have any information about the separation of the boys, it seems their family just fell apart at that point - I guess not that unusual back then.
Apparently George died in 1907 at age 21, in Kapunda, but his father is not the informant for his death entry.
So, my questions are about Friederich George (only 'George' on his marriage papers).....what happened to him after his wife died? Hoping some info is out there somewhere.
As I understand it, Julius Gustav Robert NENKE,(b.1835 in Prussia) his
1st wife Henriette & baby Bertha, arrived in South Australia in 1856 onboard the ship 'August'
I am guessing that Henriette then died, as he married Ellen Besa O'SULLIVAN(b.1836 in Ireland) the next year, 1857, at Tanunda, South Australia. I have heard that he knew no English & she no German, but they apparently fell in love - & he learnt English quickly!
I am attempting to find out where in Ireland she came from, on what
ship, etc.- all I know is that her father's name was Patrick O'SULLIVAN.
Julius was a tinsmith, and they lived at Greenock, S.A. where they went on to apparently have 12 children, 6 of whom survived - about average for the times, so it would seem.
Ellen died in 1896, and Julius in 1913.
Their 2nd daughter, Minnie,(Helene Wilhelmine)b. 1863 went on to become my Great Grandmother, but it would seem that hers was a sad, short life, after marrying at 17 she was dead at 27.
Julius had 4 brothers & 1 sister who also came to Australia.
Researching German ancestors, I have come to realize, would seem easy as they often had 3 or more first or forenames, - but very often they became known by any one of these, or a dimunitive, such as 'Minnie' (as for Wilhelmine) & then often went on to use those in marriage documents. etc rather than their baptismal name...........lots of fun there.
Hi, I am visiting Ireland in September & I am wondering how I might be able to possibly locate the graves of Patrick Hoare b.1824 & his wife Catherine or Cate Aherne b.1837. I guess they would be somewhere around the area of where their children were born, Kilderrig - & does that area name still exist.
Cheers, Jo-ann Hoare.
