SEERY in Offaly

I believe that I may have found my Seery's as stemming from Offaly (see message #5 above).

I have Patrick born 1840-44 in Ireland. His brother, John, born roughly 1834. Their younger brother Thomas born in roughly 1848. All three emigrated to the Philadelphia area. It seems that Patrick and John fought in the Civil War. While reseraching John's pension records at the National Archives in Washington, DC, I found a letter in the file, written by his wife, after his death. The letter asks for an increase in the amount of her pension, and provided various personal details as she was trying to demonstrate that she was indeed his wife. Among the information, it stated he was born in Kin's County (now Offaly), Ireland. Therefore, I believe this is where he and his brother's were born. Any information, or possible matches, are greatly appreciated.

My greatgrandfather was Bartholomew Seery. He was born in County Offaly, Ireland circa 1836 and emigrated to Scotland. I do not know the date he emigrated but he married a Mary McLeod there and they had a son. They later walked (according to family legend) down to England carrying the baby and looking for work. I believe he found work as a labourer and she worked in the mines. They had four other children.

Thanks very much for your message. I was just in Ireland. I returned last night - sorry for not replying sooner. (I didn't make it to Offaly, though).
I am not aware of any Bartholomew's in my line - or emigrations to Scotland - but as I continue to work on this, I will let you know. Do you kow where in Offaly he was from?
