Michael COLLINS [Parents] was born in probably Ballaugh, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. He died. Michael married Mary HARNETT on 11 Feb 1928 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.

Mary HARNETT [Parents] was born on 4 Feb 1900 in Dromtrasna O'Brien, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. Mary married Michael COLLINS on 11 Feb 1928 in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.

Mary lived in Ballaugh, Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.


James Michael MURPHY [Parents] was born about 1851 in Ireland. He died on 3 Aug 1906 in Hamilton, Ontario. James married Johanna Mary CAREW/CAREY on 2 May 1887 in Solohead Chapel, Co. Tipperary.

James's address at the time of his marriage, in May 1887, was Clonmeen, Co. Tipperary. He was a policeman at the time. However, following his emigration later in the year to Canada James worked initially as a labourer and later as a porter. We do not know where James was born.

James's marriage record also tells us he was 35 years of age when he married (i.e. born about 1851). However the 1901 census of Canada tells us he was born on 10 August 1860.

Johanna Mary CAREW/CAREY [Parents] was born about 17 Feb 1857 in possibly Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She was christened on 17 Feb 1857 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. She died after 1 Jun 1911 in probably Hamilton, Ontario. Johanna married James Michael MURPHY on 2 May 1887 in Solohead Chapel, Co. Tipperary.

Sponsors at Johanna's baptism were Cornelius Hanley and Sarah Hanley.

Johanna's age on her marriage certificate is 25 although she would have been 30 years old at the time. Similarly, the 1901 Canadian census gives Johanna's date of birth as 17 March 1863, about five years later than her actual date of birth. It is possible of course that the Johanna born in February 1857 died as a child and another daughter, named Johanna, was born in March 1863.

Johanna and her husband, James, emigrated to Canada in 1887 (this information comes from the 1911 Canadian census), settling in Hamilton, Ontario.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were John Carey (sic) and Bridget Carey (sic), presumably Johanna's youngest brother and sister. The Carew and Carey surnames were interchangeable in south Tipperary at the time.
