Hi! I live in the USA and this is the first time that I've tried to do any genealogy in Ireland. I am trying to find the grave of a little boy, Richard Eliot. He was born in 1733 in Cornwall and died 28 Apr 1747 in Kinsale, Ireland. He was a Midshipman in the Royal Navy at the time of his death. The family has papers referring to a "grave", which they were thinking to mark with a silver urn. They also wrote a verse to be put on it. I am thinking that he would have been buried at St. Multose in Kinsale?
I am hoping that someone can help me by checking the burial records (still held by the church) and trying to see if a monument/memorial still survives. If one does survive, then I would be absolutely thrilled if someone would e-mail a picture of it to me. If you need any more info, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have e-mailed the church of St. Multose, but received no reply. This would mean so much to me to find this. I've been working on Richard's family and siblings for years, and he is the only one that I have not been able to find. Thanks in advance for any help! :)
