Hi Brian,

Thanks so much for getting back to me. It will be nice to have your hand to hold while I go thru this frustrating search.
Today I xeroxed a package of materials to send my sisters, and cousins, well at least 6 people I think may be interested. It included the page from the baptism microfilm, and enlargement of same, enlargements of the lines (names) I copied thru the light table, map of Ireland showing Queens/Leix/Laois, marriage certificate of my great grandparents which lists their parents, a close up map showing Cappanarrow near Roscrea, and an old parish map showing the concentration of the name Patrick Phelan that I derived from the Griffith's Evaluation for Queens.
John Phelan, my great-grandfather shows his marriage date as Aug 18, 1875 in Massachusetts, 3rd marriage, parents Patrick Phelan and Mary ---. His age is given as 38. Counting back that looks like 1837 for birthdate. On another form it looks like he has written his birthdate as June 1837 (may be a census form), anyway the age he gives on the 1880 census agrees that he was born in 1837. So the baptism line I picked up for him (possibly) goes like this:
Aug 1837 day
24 B John Pat Phelan Mary Delany Young Mary Phelan Coolsum
--- John Doyle Mary
Delaney Coolsumelean
Well I am sorry but I will have to stop here. Must run off to an LDS meeting for the Irish Group I joined---think it's their last.
More later,
Helen Chamblee.

Hi Brian again,

Back from the LDS research trip. Didn't find out much, just that there are alot of microfilms on miscellaneous pedigrees that you have to just work your way through. Also found out the place name I thought my Phelans came from is probably wrong and I was told to go to the Seattle library and look at their old maps. I spent most of my time going through the one microfilm where I found my John Phelan on, this time making notations of all the people my the name of Delaney. Whew didn't get through very many pages, there are alot of them! This is the film for parish of Clonenagh and Clonaghee. If I ever get through that I will go back and try to do the same thing with Rosenallis.
I joined this small group of Irish researchers in September because I heard their leader was very good. At the October meeting she gave her resignation but she did plan this trip to LDS for the November meeting. Apparently after this, there will be no more meetings. Luck of the Irish hahaha. She did say she thought my research on John Phelan looks correct, except that I jumped to the conclusion they must have been from Cappanarrow because it was the only town that started with Cappa--- on todays maps. Apparently the Cappaloughlin or Clonard is somewhere else.
Last message I sent the baptism dates so here are the marriage dates:
Jan 7, 1831 Pat Phelan and Mary Delaney John Day Marg ---- Dolan Clonard
There are also children born to a Pat Phelan and Mary Delaney in 1828 so I guess there is more than one couple by that name. However, I do not know how to tell them apart except by dates so far.
Nov 24, 1856 John Phelan to Briget Farrell Clonard Patrick Phelan Mary
Delaney
If these are correct, I am sure we will make some type of connections.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Oh I have never been to Queens. I did take a 7 day tour of Ireland that started at Shannon airport, Limerick, Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, Waterford/Wexford, then up to Dublin (really liked Dublin!!) across to Galway bay and back to Shannon. My son was with me and we were on a bus full of Irish Catholics from Chicago who were unbelievedly rude. My son said he would never go to Ireland again and while somethings I enjoyed, I am not sure they offset several unpleasant experiences.
However I would like to see where my ancestors lived but am getting a bit too old to drive. Where did you stay when you went there? Can you take a train from Dublin to that area? Are drivers available (not taxi) to take you around or are there good car rentals and do they except american licenses?
As far as the last person I know that lived there it would be my great-great grandfather John Phelan I mentioned. He left in 1857 with his father Patrick who died on the boat coming over. My sister and I have checked all the ship lists at our archives in Seattle and have not found either of their names during the time that is listed on the naturalization papers. They list 4 ships coming in the day they have listed, but maybe there are more. Well anyway that is a mystery yet to be solved. So I probably couldn't get death records on Patrick. I do not know of any relatives in Ireland. The family here that John Phelan married into (third marriage) came over alot sooner as his wife Mary Welsh is listed as being born in Boston 1840 or 1842 and I do not know what part of Ireland her parents or grandparents were from. I am looking at all the surnames in Queens that match them, assuming these early Irish immigrants stuck pretty close together. A least that is what I have heard. I did recieve John Phelan's death certificate today, but whoever filled it out, couldn't even remember his father or mother's names.
Well this is pretty much all I know and I have just found it out recently.
Hope to hear from you again,
Helen Chamblee.

Johanna

Family

Family: Michael Phelan (b. 1865, d. DECEASED)

BIOGRAPHY

Vital Facts

  • Birth: Johanna was born in 1873 in Kilkenny, Ireland.1
  • Marriage: She and Michael Phelan were married in 1886.1,1
  • Death: She died DECEASED.

Other Facts

  • Reference Number: Johanna had reference number 8314.
  • Education: She was educated in 1901 Could Not read.1
  • Religious Affiliation: She was affiliated with Roman Catholic in 1901.1

Narrative

In 1901 Census the family are shown as having living with them two nieces:
Ellen Kane niece R.C. Cannot read or write Aged 5 Scholar Single.
Elizabeth Kane niece RC Cannot read or write Aged 4 Scholar Single.
It is not known whether the Kanes are related to Michael or his wife Johanna.

The 1911 Roskelton Census Return shows a discrepancy with the 1901 return in relation to ages that may indicate poor quality entries.
1901 Census states that Johanna was 28 years (Born in 1873)
1911 Census states that Johanna was 49 years (Born in 1862)
It would seem possible that Johannas entry in 1901 of 38/9 was interpreted as 28.

Whilst there are a number of discrepancies it seems that the two families in the two censuses are one and the same. The family names are the same and it would appear too great a coincidence for it to be otherwise.
