Thanks for the tip. I was also looking again at this place name this week. So your timing was very good. I have located you now, and as Hugh was moving around, now can see that it was not to far away from the general area.
William Kennedy and Margaret Ryan on the other hand have not been easy to crack.
Looking at the book, Mountainy Kennedys we can see that they were married at Kilcommon, in 1827. Rossmore was the adress at the time of the marriage. This has him born 1800 or prior, so unfortunatily does not make the records.
There is a John Ryan at Rossmore on the Griffith valuation, but no Kennedys. So was this a case of William moving to marry?
There is a William baptisim that would match at Newport. Parents William Kennedy and Bridget Ryan. They had 2 others baptised a Newport. But dont think that that is right. (gut feeling).
So if Hugh and Jane went to Garracummer due to family ties, then for now it seems, we are not to know.
Would love to learn any new info regarding the Kennedys in this region.
Thanks and Regards,
