I haven't posted anything for ten years, but I'm still around. My grandfather, Charles Butler Prior, was the younger brother of Richard John Henry Prior Wandesforde. My grandfather settled in Denver in 1891, after spending five years in the Candian Royal Mounted Police. I have made nine visits to Castlecomer and Kilkenny so have information on the old Caslecomer Estate. I understand that the estate papers housed in the National Library in Dublin have finally been indexed. Names of all employees over the centuries covering all types of jobs are listed.
I might be able to answer some general questions.
