Looking for info on Holden from Kilkenny. I have four generations of family tree researched to names, all John or Jack. Jack was a carpenter in Callan, had fourteen children including John b.around 1911, John had twelve children, all boys, four of whom did not survive to adulthood, first to survive was John b. 1941. I need to learn about this line from "pre-Jack" time frame.

Hi,

My fathers family are from Graiguenamanagh,Kilkenny,and their surname is Holden.

My father, John Holden, born circa 28th September 1909 was born to John Holden also from above address,but beyond that I do not know.

I never knew or met my grandparents and I find that very frustrating as I would dearly love to find out who they were,what they did,and if I had any other relatives,"extended family on that side."

Good luck with your search.

Hi - I have a massive chunk of family information / tree's / chronologies / photo's that I have gathered over the years all regarding Holden Families centred around Mullinvat, South Kilkenny. My timelines stretch back to around the mid eighteenth century. Happy to help with your query, or anyone else hoping to find links in South Kilkenny and that region. Please get in touch, as am always anxious to develop new links and family ties.
Best
John

John,
In my husband's line, there is a John Holden from 'near Waterford' but now believed to be Co Kilkenny. He married a Julia (more likely Judith Malone or Meagher). We believe he traveled for Ireland approx. 1845-1850. He is in the U.S. census of 1850 as living in Lapeer, MI. He died in Midland, MI during July 1882. His wife died in Midland Co., MI December 1874. Any connection?

My mother's family is Holden. Peter Holden, born 1825 in Ireland. I have not been able to pinpoint his county or location in Ireland. He emigrated in 1869 to Schuylkill County, PA where many were from Kilkenny. Any info would be most appreciated.
