Surnames: KILMARTIN CARTY
I'm trying to find my KILMARTIN roots, likely in Drumcliff & Magherow, Sligo. My ancestors on this line were DANIEL KILMARTIN & ELEANORA CARTY. I know nothing of their births, but I believe their first child was MICHAEL, born Abt. 1845 in D&M, according to the LDS site (where the name indicates KILMARTEN).

The family appears in Glasgow in the early 1850's, where my line descends from another son, DANIEL. There are other KILMARTINs (& variations) evident in the LDS records around the same time, likely some of the 1st Daniel's siblings, but I have no links. Any help, hints, prayers, will be appreciated.

I too have Kilmartin in my line originating in Drumcliffe & lower rosses point, Co Sligo. michael Kilmartin born 1859 was my great grandfather. He married Bridget (B.1865)and had 5 children Mary 1890 (my grandmother) Kate 1892, William 1893, Bridget 1896 & Ellen 1898. I have not been able to trace back further than my great granfather as yet & was interested to know if your Kilmartins are related to mine! Happy hunting

Surnames: KILMARTIN, CARTY, (LADEN & McDONAGH)
The only KILMARTIN in my tree that I am 100% sure of came from Ireland was my great great grandfather Daniel, who was likely born Abt. 1820 in Ireland, specifically where, I do not know. So I cannot suggest a link at this time.

His father was also Daniel, and his mother was CATHERINE LADEN. He married ELEANORA (HELEN) CARTY in Ireland, likely around 1844, having at least one child there, Michael, born Abt. 1845, Drumcliff & Magherow, and their subsequent children, including my great grandfather Daniel were all likely born in Glasgow.

I have no knowledge of the fate of any of my great grandfather's siblings either.

Family lore has always indicated Sligo as the family's place of origin, and the LDS indicates the baptism of MICHAEL KILMARTEN in 1845, as indicated above, parents being the same names as my ancestors, so I'm confident that he was their 1st child.

I wish I knew more, and would appreciate any of those wonderful people out there who might be able to provide assistance for folk like you and I to trace our roots.

Hi I found an Anna Kilmartin b. 14 June 1884 to a William Kilmartyn and Brigida Reilly, christened on 17th June 1884 sponsors were Jacobus Kivlahan and Margarita Gillan. Also a William Jacobus kilmartyn b. 26.9.1885 to William Kilmartyn and Elizabetha McDonnell christened on 27.9.1885 sponsors were Michael kilmartyn and B. Gillin. They are the only two births I see in Rosses Upper/Lower/Point between May 1880 and July 1896. (spellings as found) Does this help? I know its a bit later than your dates.

I wish I could say it helps, though I do appreciate you taking the time to look and post.

I know nothing of my KILMARTINs or any of the related families, after my relatives all emigrated from Ireland to Glasgow in the 1840's thru' the 1870's. (What? No spuds?)

The only info' prior to that time is, the names of parents of various Glasgow kin as they applied for Poor Relief in Glasgow in the 1880's and 1890's. In some cases, their parents were mentioned, but invariably as "deceased", Ireland.

So..bottom line...I know of NO relatives left in Ireland.

DARN!

There were only a handfull of famalies living in the Lower Rosses at that time and even today 80% of those living there are all related or connected to each other. Its a very small community (20 - 30 houses) The McLoughlins, Devaneys, Killerlanes, Kivlehans and Kilgallens all still live in the Lower Rosses. There must have been an alternative to spuds!
