I mentioned that we were about to add some headstone photos for Newtownforbes
(R.C.) Church. Then we got embroiled with technical problems with the IGP
websites. We have now sorted it out and are back online.
Newtownforbes has been added. Some of the headstones are old and in poor shape.
They are named for the name on the headstone and are in alphabetical order. You
can hover your mouse over the thumbnail to see the name or just click through
them. Oh yes, there seems to have been a rain drop on the camera lens, which
you may notice. Sorry about that.
here is a short version of that url:
If you have any photos from this or other cemeteries, we can add to what we have.
Just email the photo to:
These photos were taken by Dave Hall.
The good news is that thanks to Dave Hall we have some more headstone photos
taken in Longford for IGP. The new photos (some old and hard to decipher) are
from Corboy Presbyterian Church.
*The bad news is the IGP website has been having nasty technical problems for
about two weeks. Some people are getting the site and some are not. So, if you
want to check out this page and the site won't come up, I fear you will have to
check back in a few days. :(
We will have another new set soon for Newtownforbes R.C. Cemetery.
I still have to work on this batch.
I am new to the list but I have been researching my Rawlins family in Dublin and Cork for some time now. Recently, we confirmed family memory that my gggrandfather, Samuel Rawlins who was born circa 1839-1844 and left Ireland for the US in 1867, had two sisters. We found pictures of both parents (unnamed) and two sisters named Rebecca and Jennie (or possibly Lizzie-the handwriting is difficult to read), According to the US 1880 census, Samuel's parents were born in England. There also appears to have been a brother, Charles?
While the photos were taken in Dublin and in Cork in the 1860s and perhaps some the early 1870s, we have not been able to track the family after that. I recently found a death record for a Rebecca Sophia Rawlins,(a spinster) who died at the age of 39 in Cashel in 1896. This Rebecca would have been around the same age as my ancestor's sister. I have to wonder if there is a family connection.
If anyone has ties to the Rawlins families in Cashel, I would love to share notes. Since the above Rebecca was a spinster, perhaps she was living with or staying with extended family. From my research, I know that my family traveled between Dublin to Cork. There is some speculation that Samuel may even have been in Belfast for a year or so. The family may have even gone back and forth from Ireland to England. My hope is that the pictures may lead us to establishing our true family line.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Hope I don't get moderated.
