CLONEYGOWAN,
(Cluan,-na-Gamhan i.e. “the pasturage of the calves”), in this parish, was one of the residences of the once powerful family of O’Dempsey. The Four Masters record at the year 1576, that “Owny, the son of Hugh O’Dempsey, was treacherously slain in his own residence of Cluain-na-n Gamhan.” The same is found in Dowling’s Annals, under date 1577 :-“ Eugenius McHugh O’Dempsie, do Clonagoony, miles ac dominus do Glanmolyra, fuit, in castro suo ibidem, interfectus per Lysac McNeill y Moardha.”
Dr. Ross MacGeoghegan, whose mother was daughter of Dempsey, Lord Clanmaliere, was born at Cloneygowan, in 1580; this was also the birthplace of Dr. Edmund Dempsey, Bishop of Leighlin.
SUCCESSION OF PASTORS.
From the Registration of Parish Priests, made in 1704, it appears that: EDWARD F0X, residing at Shranure, aged 54, ordained in April, 1680, at Balyna, by Dr. Forstall, Bishop of Kildare, was Parish Priest of Geashill, Ballykean, and Killaderry; his sureties were Owen Fox of Shranure, and John Dunne of Ballymacrossen, gents. The time when Father Fox died is unknown. EDWARD KAVANAGH most probably succeeded. He lived to be 80 years of age, and died on the 8th of October, 1769, and was buried at Urney. WILLIAM KENNEDY was the next PP. He died on the 8th September, 1795, aged 69, and is interred at Raheen.
JAMES DOWLING succeeded. He died on the 15th August, 1825, aged 75 years, and was buried at Ballinagar, where a very fine church of Gothic design has been erected, and where a tablet bears the following inscription to his memory: “Rove-rendi Jacobi Dowling, septuagenarii, qui XV. Augusti die, Salutis Anno MDCCCXX V., in Domino obdormivit, quod mortale fuit, hic impositum, jacet. Parochianis de Geashill et Killeigh suae commissis curae plusquam triginta annos, exemplum praestitit, ut qui bene munus sacrosanctum sibi in fidem, a Christo Domino delegatum, perceperit, et studiose coluerit.”
REV. JAMES KINSELLA was appointed P.P. in 1825, and died June 24th, 1859, aged 66.
The REV. JOHN NOLAN, succeeded, and was translated to Kildare, July 27th, 1867.
REV. MARCUS DOWLING was next P.P. He died September 9th, 1873, and was succeeded by
The REV. HUGH MAHON, who was translated to Portarlington in March, 1875, and was succeeded by
The REV. JOSEPH DONOHOE, the present respected P.P.

"· Willie tells us that James worked at the Customs House ("Pensioned off at 60 I believe and drew it for 30 yrs"). Dervla calls him a senior civil servant at Dublin Castle. Kathleen thinks he was an engineer with Dublin Corporation. Pettigrew's Almanac of 1841 has him clearly listed though - "First Clerk, Revenue of Customs, Port of Dublin - James Dowling Esq." - and he is mentioned twice in the testimonials of his son Robert, as "an Officer, H. M. Customs, where he passed an unblemished business life of long duration" and in "His father, now on the Superannuation List, held an appointment in the Customs' Service for a long period, and from the character he bore both while in office and since his retirement, I have no hesitation in recommending the son as one in whom the utmost confidence may be placed."
· He lived at 43 Synge Street, just ten doors away from where George Bernard Shaw was born in 1856. They would have been neighbours for ten years. I don't know when James moved there, but Thom's Directory of 1890 has him there still seven years after his death. It also shows his "great friends" Mrs Ennis at 8 Grosvenor Road (see Willie's letter ). Pettigrew above shows R. Ennis, sol. 24 Essex Quay in 1841. Perhaps he too had died by 1890."

FACTS
· Poor Anne. We don't know what caused her death at the age of 41; it seems unlikely she was married or Mary Anne would have mentioned it; what we do have is a beautiful portrait which hangs on our wall at home. It shows a young woman (I have somewhere in my head that she was 23 at the time) of some means and is obviously the work of a decent professional painter. The portrait hung in Eliza's house in Richmond Place and Willie remembered her always saying "That's for Willie when I'm gone.". So when he heard news of her death Robert promptly headed round there and walked home with the painting under his arm, from where he shipped it to Willie in Liverpool, before any of you lot out there could get your hands on it. ;)
· Mary Anne says she died in September. In my Dad's (Osmond's) notes he corrects that to October 15, based presumeably on her burial certificate, which is dated October 17 (it could be Oct 11, but I think Dad stuck the certificate to its current backing sheet, so I'm assuming he saw it in better condition than it is now). Even a ten-day delay seems unlikely in 1837.
· Of course, if Dad was right, it casts a doubt on the accuracy of all or any of Mary Anne's dates and opens up other avenues of exploration.

FACTS

· Willie thought that his Father, "when he went out met his two brothers Laurence and Wm". We don't know when Laurence emigrated to America, but we do know that he died in Galveston, Houston, Texas of Yellow Fever in September 1867, almost five years before Robert's arrival in New York.
· We know that he fought with the Confederates, while his brother William fought for the Unionists.

Over the last six years I have searched extensively in the online civil war archives and the Tombstone Project for any sign of either Laurence or William, but have come up with nothing so far. Dad also had correspondence with the United Daughters of the Confederacy in the sixties, who too found nothing. Instead searches in and around Houston at that time inevitably bring me to Richard "Dick" Dowling.
One of the great Confederate heroes, Dick Dowling, the son of immigrants from Galway, was a bartender in Houston before the war. In September 1863, aged 26 years, he found himself in charge of the 47 Davis Guards at Fort Griffin when they were attacked by a fleet of 22 ships carrying 5,000 Federal men attempting to land and take over Texas. Such was the accuracy of the Davis Guard gunners however, that within forty minutes the 47 had routed the 5,000, with the capture of two gunboats and without a single Confederate casualy, bar one soldier who got a wooden splinter in his arm. Needless to say, 1st Lieutenant Dowling was soon Major Dick Dowling.
Dick, like Laurence, died of Yellow Fever in Houston in September 1867. Given that his death must have been widely reported, I had thought that there might have been a case of mistaken identity in the news of her brother's death getting back to Mary Ann. The reality, however is far grimmer.
Throughout the nineteenth century, "the yellow jack", as Yellow Fever was known, regularly swept through Texas, but never more devastatingly so than in the summer and autumn of 1867, when 1,900 died in Harris County and 1,100 more at Galveston. Such was the speed and virulance of the disease - a perfectly healthy victim could be dead within three days and mortality rates could be as high as 85% - that mass burials were not uncommon.
While half of the streets and hospitals in southeast Texas have been named after Dick Dowling, it may well be that Laurence lies in an unmarked grave.

FACTS

According to Willie, Robert worked mainly as a Solicitors' Clerk in the Ennis' office. These were old friends of his father's who lived on Grosvenor Road. Pettigrew & Oulton's Almanac of 1841 lists a R. Ennis, sol. at 24 Essex Quay.
Immediately after his marriage in 1872 Robert left with Maggie for the US. There he met his brothers, Laurence and William, as well as several of the Gartlands (his in-laws). His first three children, Laurence, Emily and Elizabeth, were all born in the States. Elizabeth at least was born in Brooklyn. Emily died there while still an infant.
Robert and Maggie returned to Ireland with Laurence and Elizabeth in late 1877 or early 1878. Willie was born soon afterwards at 43 Synge Street, according to Kathleen.
Thereafter they spent some time in Harolds Cross Road. Kathleen remembers her father pointing out the house to her - opposite the cemetry near to the Poor Clare Convent. The spot she describes coincides with 53 Harolds Cross, which Thoms Directory of 1891 gives as being occupied by Mrs Gartland. Perhaps Maggie's mother?
Shortly after they moved to a permanent address at 11 Rugby Road, Ranelagh.
It is, above all, Robert's fault that this web site exists. It was he who acquired his eldest sister's notes (sent to him in America, or retrieved upon his return?) and he who ensured that my grandfather was entrusted with the safe keeping of Aunt Anne. He also preserved the cutlass and foils owned by his grandfather, which were later lost in Liverpool.

Robert and Maggie
"There was an amount of instability in my grandfather's background. His own father - the son of a senior civil servant at Dublin Castle - had fallen in love with the kitchen-maid, got a chamber pot thrown at his head when the betrothal was announced and soon after emigrated to America with his unacceptable bride and the statutory shilling. Three years and three children later the young couple returned to Dublin, my great-grandfather having found the American way of life insufficiently civilised. For the rest of his life he practised civilisation by drinking too much port and collecting coins while his wife - an energetic and courageous woman - ran an Academy for (very) Young Ladies. As she had been illiterate on her wedding day her husband perhaps deserves some credit for having taken the trouble to teach her how to Read & Write. Mercifully, Providence spared her any more children after the return to Dublin.
At the age of fourteen my grandfather had to find a job and with wild illogic his father objected to his working as a messenger-boy for a firm of silk importers. It was perfectly in order for a wife to work eighteen hours a day to support an idle husband, but for a son and heir to run errands - no!"
Dervla Murphy
Wheels Within Wheels
I don't know the truth of this version of our ancestors as it has filtered down on the other side of the family. I had never heard of it but, knowing my own immediate relatives, I doubt I would have if it were true. It should be noted that Robert's father worked in the Custom House and not Dublin Castle and that had Providence indeed spared Maggie I would not exist. Willie, their fourth child, was born in Dublin (though Maggie was already pregnant when they set out from New York). It is likely therefore that Dervla's account, though true in essence, has seen some embelishment in time and the telling.

Narrative

From Kathleen's notes:

My grandmother, Margaret Dowling (née Gartland) died 13th April 1925. Among the "Dowling Papers" is her baptismal cert, stating that - "Margaret Gartland of William Gartland and Margaret Johnston" was baptised according to rites of R. C. Church on 1st Jan 1843. Sponsors Terence Murphy and Mary Lear. They don't appear to know her date of birth.

On return from America I believe she started a little K. G. school for a time. Then ran a shop - fruit & veg. I know she gave piano lessons and her daughter Elisabeth (my Aunt Lizzie) also gave piano lessons, and would play the piano at parties until the early hours of the morning.

The original family tree drawn up by Osmond gives Maggie's birthday as December 29th.
