I found an obituary for Michael Fox buried in Corralleham (St. Bridgid's) on 9-28 (year unknown 1900 - 1940?)in a family scrapbook.

It mentions many people in the newspaper clipping. I am trying to determine how these people fit into our family tree.

Michael Fox died 9-28-?? Buried in Corraleeham Cemetery
It said Michael was 62 years old.

The article mentions the following people as attending his funeral.

Susan Fox - Michaels' wife
Francis Fox - his son
M1 Fox D.C - his son

Margaret Fox- his sister

Patrick Prior - nephew
Jas Prior - nephew
Maryanne Prior - neice
H Prior - uncle

Mrs McGovern - neice
Mrs Curran - aunt
Philp M'Kiernan - brother in law

There are about 50 people specificaly named in this obituary as people who attended the funeral. It mentions other cousins as well.

My grandfather was James Fox.
My great grandfather was Patrick Fox who died in Ireland 12-22-1908. His wife was Mary McGovern who died in Ireland 12-29-1939. Patrick Fox had brothers named James, John, Peter and sisters named Katherine (who married a Galligan) and Bridget(who married a Glasheen) There was probably another brother named Hugh.

My great great grandfather was also a Patrick Fox. His wife was Bridget Walsh

Are Michael Fox and Margaret Fox mentioned above actually other siblings of my great grandfather (Patrick Fox & Mary McGovern)?

Did my great great grandfather (Patrick Fox & Bridget Walsh)have any brothers or sisters?


I live in the USA (Connecticut) so I can't just go and look at the gravestones in Ireland.

Does anyone have information as to how these people mentioned above fit into the family tree?
