Descendants of 'unknown' CAREW (to contribute information, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com)

Fourth Generation

(Continued)


48. Sarah Agnes (Agnes) CAREW (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 22 Dec 1863 in possibly Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She was christened on 22 Dec 1863 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. She died on 3 Apr 1935 in Duncannon, Co. Wexford.

Sponsors at Agnes's baptism were Joan Ryan and Catherine Ryan.

According to the 1911 census, Agnes and her husband, Patrick, had been married 26 years and had seven children born alive, all of whom were alive at the time of the census.

Sarah married Patrick MONAHAN, son of Patrick MONAHAN and Catherine LARNER (caution: not verified), on 27 Nov 1884 in Tipperary Chapel, Co. Tipperary. Patrick was born about 1853 in east Co. Galway. He died on 9 May 1915 in Duncannon, Co. Wexford.

Patrick was a member of the R.I.C. (Royal Irish Constabulary). R.I.C. records show that a Patrick Monahan, born in Co. Galway, enlisted in the force in 1874 aged 21. I think it likely that this relates to our Patrick. At the time of his marriage, in 1884, Patrick was an R.I.C. constable in Golden, Co. Tipperary. The 1901 census tells us he was still a policeman 17 years later and living in Duncannon, Co. Wexford, but by the time of the birth of his youngest child, Harriet, in 1902 he had become a shopkeeper in Duncannon. In the 1911 census he is described as a shopkeeper and publican. His father had also been a shopkeeper.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Martin J. O'Donnell and Joanna M. Carew.

Sarah and Patrick had the following children.

William Joseph MONAHAN was born on 13 Jun 1886 in Co. Tipperary. He died on 24 Nov 1918 in Co. Tipperary.

From family sources I have William's birth and death dates, as well as counties of birth and death. However, I have been unable to confirm any of this information. Nor can I find any trace of William in the 1911 census. He is listed in the 1901 census, when he was aged 14 and living with his family in Duncannon, Co. Wexford. In case he emigrated I checked immigration records on the Ancestry website but nothing was found.
+ 123 F ii Alice Frances MONAHAN was born on 11 Oct 1887. She died on 16 Oct 1947.
+ 124 M iii Patrick MONAHAN was born on 23 Apr 1890. He died on 10 Aug 1942.
  125 M iv
Edward MONAHAN was born on 12 Jun 1892 in Duncannon, Co. Wexford. He died on 8 May 1935 in New York City.

According to the family, Edward was in the RIC (Royal Irish Constabulary) prior to emigrating to the United States (he arrived in New York on 30 April 1915 having sailed on the "Megantic" from Liverpool). On the ship manifest his occupation as given as "ship's steward", and his contact name was an uncle, Martin Monahan, who lived in New York. Sadly, Edward's father, Patrick, died only nine days after Edward's arrival in the States.

Edward's World War I registration card - every male of military age was required to complete one - tells us that Edward was working as a porter in 1917 in a hotel at 73rd St. and Broadway in New York. The name of the hotel is almost illegible but it could be the Ansonia. The card also tells us he lived at what looks like 206 8th Avenue in New York and that he was "tall", of medium build, had grey eyes and brown hair.

I believe I have found Edward in the 1920 and 1930 censuses. There is an Irish-born Edward Monahan of a similar age lodging in Manhattan in 1920 and working as a waiter. In 1930 an Edward Monahan, who emigrated from Ireland in 1915, is working as a houseman for an Epstein family in Yonkers, New York. This Edward, who is 36 years old, was married at the age of 29, but his wife is not listed as a member of the household. Taking the difference between his census age and his age at marriage we have an approximate year of marriage of 1923. Marriage records were located on the Ancestry website for two Edward Monahans who were married in New York around that time; one was married in Kings County (equivalent to Brooklyn) on 6 March 1923 and the other in Kings on 19 August 1925 but in neither case is the bride's name provided so we cannot say if either of these records relates to our Edward. It appears Edward and Mamie had no children.

Edward was only 42 years of age when he died.
       
Edward married Mary (Mamie) RYAN. Mary died.

49. John Joseph CAREW (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 21 Oct 1866 in Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 21 Oct 1866 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. He died on 12 Jun 1935 in Wentworth, Ontario. He was buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Hamilton, Ontario.

Sponsors at John's baptism were Anthony Ryan and Margaret Godfrey. The family's address on the baptismal record is given as Newtown. Presumably this is the townland of Newtown in the parish of Soloheadbeg, and John's birthplace.

John emigrated to Canada in 1888 (according to the 1911 census of Canada) or 1891 (according to the 1921 census). He lived in Hamilton, Ontario where he worked as a mechanic (according to his marriage certificate), iron worker (from his daughter's birth certificate), plumber (from the 1921 census) and fireman for an underground cable company (according to his death certificate).
