Hi...I emailed you in mail via my aol mail and I'm not sure if it reached you...could you help me?
My great grand father was Cornelius Guerin. per information shared with me from someone on line:
Cornelius Guerin born Kerry Appointed to the RIC 13 Jun 1881 age 20? height 5'9"(age difficult to read) discharged 15 Jun 1881 Note says unfit by surgeon but no date Reappointed 31 Aug 1881
Transfers Galway ER (indistinct)8 Jan 1882
Waterford 7 Mar 1885
Dismissed 2 Apr 1889
Here is more info on Cornelius. He was born in Duagh, Kerry in 1860. While he was in the RIC for all of 2 years, he married my great grandmother, Lizzie Mitchell, in Caltra, Co Galway in 1883, and had my grandmother in May of 1884. So, I don't think the RIC knew about this marriage. Also, by Feb of 1889 Con and his wife, Lizzie, had already immigrated to the U.S. (without my grandmother - just the two of them)...so, I'm thinking he left before he was discharged. I think he broke a few rules!!
I believe his service number is #47261.
I would so appreciate any further information you could glean for me from your expertise on the RIC.
