Second Generation


3. Catherine DOODY (Johanna ) was born about 7 Nov 1852 in Knockainy or Galbally, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 7 Nov 1852 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. She died in 1933 in probably Naugatuck, Connecticut. She was buried in St. James's Cemetery, Naugatuck, Connecticut.

Sponsors at Catherine's baptism were Thomas Cronin and Anne Noonan.

Catherine and her husband, Matthew, emigrated with their family to the United States in 1898 and settled in Naugatuck, Connecticut. Ship manifest information on the Ellis Island website gives the family's contact name in the U.S. as Matthew's brother Patrick who lived in Brooklyn.

The family lived for several years at 57 Oak St., Naugatuck.

Catherine married Matthew KIELY, son of Patrick KIELY, on 13 May 1875 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. Matthew was born about 1854 in probably Corderry, Co. Tipperary. He died in 1907 in probably Naugatuck, Connecticut. He was buried in probably St. James's Cemetery, Naugatuck, Connecticut.

Matthew's marriage certificate tells us he was from Cordery (presumably Corderry, Galbally, Co. Limerick. I have also seen Corderry spelled as Coroderry.

Matthew farmed in Corderry prior to emigrating with his family to the United States in 1898. He died at the age of about 53.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Michael Kiely and Mary Doody.

Catherine and Matthew had the following children.

  16 M iii
Patrick KIELY was born on 6 Jan 1881 in Corderry, Co. Tipperary. He died after Aug 1971 in probably Connecticut.

Patrick lived in Naugatuck, Connecticut. The Connecticut Military Census of 1917 tells us Patrick was single at the time, was 5 feet 5 inches tall and an employee of a rubber manufacturing company.

Elizabeth KIELY was born on 6 Sep 1893 in Corderry, Co. Tipperary. She died on 22 Aug 1971 in Pompano Beach, Florida. She was buried in St. James's Cemetery, Naugatuck, Connecticut.

The 1920 U.S. census tells us Elizabeth was a shoe maker in a rubber factory. By the time of the 1930 census she was a rubber worker in the rubber factory.

Elizabeth, who never married, lived in Naugatuck for most of her life, moving to Florida about 10 years before she died at the age of 77.
  24 F xi
Ellen (Helen) KIELY was born on 6 Feb 1895 in Corderry, Co. Tipperary. She died before Aug 1971 in U.S..

4. Mary DOODY (Johanna ) was born about 21 Sep 1854 in Knockainy or Galbally, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 21 Sep 1854 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. She died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Co. Cork. She was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork.

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were Thomas Quirke and Mary Fahy.

Mary and Dan are buried in the O'Sullivan plot in Donoughmore cemetery, although their names are not listed on the headstone.

Mary married Daniel (Dan) SULLIVAN, son of James (Seamus) SULLIVAN and 'UNKNOWN', on 20 Jan 1880 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. Daniel was born about 1840 in Caheraveelane, Kilshannig; or Glynn, Mourneabbey. He died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork.

Dan met his wife, Mary Doody from Galbally, Co. Limerick through one of her brothers. Sometime in the 1870s, this brother (it is not known if it was James, John, Mike or Richard) - arrived in the Glynn area from Galbally looking for a job. He had failed a secondary school exam, and because of of trouble at home as a result, he had left Galbally to go looking for work. Dan's father, Séamus, took him in. In his free time, Mary's brother used to join Dan and his brother, Jim, in their athletic pursuits. One day, the boys were pole-vaulting and Mary's brother broke his arm; his mother was contacted and so she made the journey - by carriage - from Galbally to Glynn. When her son told her of the generosity of the Sullivans, she invited them to Galbally for a visit. When Dan went to Galbally, he met Mary for the first time, and they later married. Just over a year after the marriage, Mary's sister Julia married Dan's brother Jim.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Dan and Mary were Robert Love and Julia Doody. Robert Love was a family friend; he was a policeman stationed in the Galbally area and was a brother of the man who would eventually purchase the Ballyknockin farm of Dan's brother, Jim, following the eviction of Jim's family.

Dan's residence at the time of his marriage was Ballinamona (which is the registration area in which Glynn is located). Mary's residence was Ardnamoher, Galbally.

Mary and Daniel had the following children.

  25 F i
Ellen O'SULLIVAN was born about 20 Nov 1880 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She was christened on 20 Nov 1880 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

Ellen is listed, aged 30 and single, in the 1911 census return for her parents' household, suggesting that she still lived in the family home. Unfortunately we have no further information on Ellen.
+ 26 M ii James (Jamesy Dan) O'SULLIVAN was born about 10 Jan 1883. He died in Jun 1966.
  27 M iii
Michael O'SULLIVAN was born about 3 Oct 1884 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was christened on 3 Oct 1884 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died about 1900 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

I have been told by a family source that Michael died at the age of 15 following an accident on the farm in Glynn involving a horse. However, I have come across the death certificate of a Michael Sullivan of Glynn who died of pneumonia in Glynn on 8 May 1897, aged 11. The informant was his mother, Mary. Although our Michael would have been 12 years old in May 1897 I think it possible that this death certificate is that of our Michael. Of course there could have been another Sullivan family with similarly named family members living in Glynn at that time.

It is not known for certain where Michael is buried but it is assumed that burial took place in the family plot in Donoughmore Cemetery in Stuake, Co. Cork.
  28 M iv
Daniel (Dan) O'SULLIVAN was born about 26 Oct 1889 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was christened on 26 Oct 1889 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died in Nov 1963. He was buried in Gouldshill Cemetery, Mallow, Co. Cork.

Dan never married. He lived with his brother Jamesy Dan and his family and is buried with Jamesy Dan.
  29 F v
Mary O'SULLIVAN was born on 10 Jul 1896 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

Unfortunately we have no information on Mary.

5. James DOODY (Johanna ) was born about 18 Jul 1856 in Knockainy or Galbally, Co. Limerick. He was christened on 18 Jul 1856 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. He died on 29 Jan 1925 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co. Limerick.

Sponsors at James's baptism were James Connell and Mary Hennessy.

It is likely James inherited the family farm in Ardnamoher.

James married Margaret CULL, daughter of Cornelius CULL, on 14 Feb 1893 in Ballyporeen, Co. Tipperary. Margaret was born in 1862 in probably Brackbawn, Skeheenarinky, Co. Tipperary. She died in 1942.

According to the 1911 census, James and Margaret had four children born alive, all of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were John Doody (probably James's brother) and Catherine Cull.

James and Margaret had the following children.

  30 M i
Michael (Mick) DOODY was born on 6 Dec 1893 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co. Limerick. He died before 10 Dec 1991 in probably Galbally, Co. Limerick.

Mick inherited the family farm. He and his wife, Maggie, who married late, had no children. I was told that the farm was sold to a relative of Maggie's. According to a Co. Limerick Land Registry document (folio number 1154), it appears that Mick sold the farm in two tranches: 12 acres were purchased by a John Hanrahan in 1949 and the rest of the land was sold to a Patrick Joachim Hennessy on the basis that Mick and Maggie were to have a "life estate", i.e., a right to live in the old family home until their deaths. Apparently no trace of the old Doody farmhouse remains.
       
Michael married Margaret (Maggie) PETERS, daughter of John PETERS and Hannah 'UNKNOWN', in possibly 1942 in Co. Tipperary. Margaret was born about 1905 in Clonbeg, Glen of Aherlow, Co. Tipperary. She died on 10 Dec 1991 in Limerick. She was buried in Clonbeg Cemetery, Glen of Aherlow, Co. Tipperary.

It is thought that Maggie lived in a nursing home towards the end of her life. She died in St. Camillus Hospital in Limerick.
+ 31 F ii Bridget (Beatrice) DOODY was born on 24 Dec 1895. She died in 1971.
+ 32 F iii Johanna (Hannah, Anna) DOODY was born on 12 Dec 1897. She died in Aug 1977.
+ 33 M iv Richard (Dick) P. DOODY was born on 26 Jul 1900. He died on 19 Apr 1962.

6. Julia DOODY (Johanna ) was born about 4 Jul 1858 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 4 Jul 1858 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. She died on 8 Sep 1933 in Waterford. She was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork.

Sponsors at Julia's baptism were John Doody and Catherine Quirke.

The family's address on the baptismal record is Ardnamoher, a townland in Galbally. Presumably this is where Julia was born and where the family farmed. Ardnamoher is also given as Julia's residence on her marriage certificate. Witnesses to the marriage of Julia and her husband, Jim, were Jeremiah Herlehey (James Henebry in the church register) and Elizabeth Doody.

According to a family member, Julia was a tiny woman and extremely active.  

Julia and Jim's children would have gone to school in Analeentha National School, next to Analeentha Church in Mourneabbey.

Julia died in Waterford at the home of her son Jimmy. She was buried in the Sullivan plot in Donoughmore Cemetery, Co. Cork. Note that there are two Donoughmore cemeteries, one in the centre of the village, and a newer one outside Donoughmore next to a church built around 2000. Our O'Sullivans are buried in the newer cemetery.

Julia married James (Big Jim) SULLIVAN, son of James (Seamus) SULLIVAN and 'UNKNOWN', on 1 Mar 1881 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. James was born in Abt late 1840s in Caheraveelane, Kilshannig; or Glynn, Mourneabbey. He died on 24 Dec 1903 in South Infirmary, Cork. He was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork.

The exact year of Jim's birth is uncertain: his age at the time of his marriage in March 1881 is given as 30 (born about 1850); his age on the 1901 census return is given as 53 (born about 1847); and his age on his death certificate (dated December 1903) is 51 (born about 1852).

Jim and his brother, Dan, were well-known locally for their great strength and athletic prowess. Jim farmed in the townland of Ballyknockin (also spelled Ballyknockane) in the parish of Mourneabbey (or Mourne Abbey). He rented land from a man by the name of Weir or Ware who was the main landlord in Ballyknockin at the time. Sometime between October 1886 and October 1887, Jim and his family were evicted. Apparently the landlord wanted to sell the land to a man by the name of Love and therefore raised the rent so much that Jim could not pay. Jim was in hospital at the time - it is said that he had got a kick from a horse - and apparently when he came out of hospital, he cut furze (for fuel) on his former property and was jailed as a result. Interestingly the Ballyknockin farm is now owned by a great-great-grandson of Jim's (i.e., one of Patrick O'Hanlon's sons).

Following the eviction, Jim's brother Dan gave them shelter. The county council eventually built a cottage for Jim's family in Glynn on an acre of land given to them by Dan. The cottage is still there, but is now derelict and obscured from view by vegetation. It is located on the roadside near the laneway to the farm now owned by Dan's descendants.

Jim's death certificate tells us he died of (a) "haematemisis [vomiting of blood] and debility" and (b) "Exhaustion", conditions from which he he been suffering for four days.

Besides all the members of the Sullivan family listed on these pages, there was also an Emily Sullivan but we do not know how she fits in. We know of her existence from an old prayer book once owned by Ellen, a daughter of Jim and his wife, Julia, in which is written "Emly (sic) Sullivan, Mourneabbey". The prayer book was published (by Easons) in 1903 so Emily was probably living in Mourneabbey in the early part of the 20th century. Could Ellen have called herself Emily at one time? Or could Emily have been a sister of Ellen's? Jim and Julia had 12 children born alive (nine of whom were alive at the time of the 1911 census) and we have the names of 11, missing one of the children who died. Could this have been Emily? If so she would have died between 1903 and 1911. There is only one birth record on the Irish Genealogy website for an Emily O'Sullivan/Sullivan born in the Mallow Registration District after 1881 (the year of Jim and Julia's marriage) but that did not relate to a child of Jim and Julia's. The only death record located for an Emily O'Sullivan/Sullivan in the Mallow Registration District was for the unrelated Emily O'Sullivan above.

They had the following children.

  34 F i
Mary Ann (Sr. Mary Munchin) O'SULLIVAN was born on 6 May 1882 in Ballyknockane, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She was christened on 9 May 1882 in Analeentha Church, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She died on 23 Jun 1913 in Chiswick, London. She was buried in Catholic Cemetery, Kensal Green, London.

According to information from the Mallow Heritage Centre, the sponsors at Mary's baptism were Richard Murphy and Mary O'Sullivan.

On 14 August 1909 Mary entered the convent of the Sisters of Marie Réparatrice on Windmill Road in Cork, and on 22 February 1910 she received the habit and the name Sr. Mary of St. Munchin. The Sisters of Marie Réparatrice were a closed order whose members wore pale blue robes and were known as the Blue Nuns.

Mary was only 31 years of age when she died in London in 1913 of tuberculosis of the lung and larynx. She had arrived in London, already ill, on 1 December 1911. She made her first profession in London on 25 May 1912 and died 13 months later in the Marie Réparatrice convent at Tower House, 4 Chiswick Lane, Chiswick. Mary is described in the convent journal as having been "full of virtue".
+ 35 M ii James (Jimmy) O'SULLIVAN was born on 17 Dec 1883. He died on 6 Oct 1959.
+ 36 F iii Johanna (Hannah) O'SULLIVAN was born on 23 Oct 1885. She died on 15 Jan 1983.
  37 M iv
Daniel O'SULLIVAN was born about 20 Oct 1886 in Ballyknockane, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was christened on 20 Oct 1886 in Analeentha Church, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died on 28 Nov 1887 in Ballyknockane, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

According to information from the Mallow Heritage Centre, the sponsors at Daniel's baptism were William Hayes and Mary McSweeney.

It is possible that Mary McSweeney was a grandmother of Maura O'Hanlon (née O'Sullivan) who would have been a niece of Daniel's - the McSweeney/Sweeney family were neighbours of the O'Sullivans. Another connection between the Sweeneys and the Sullivans is that it is thought that Cornelius Sweeney who was the father of Mary's husband, Jeremiah, was married to a member of the Sullivan family of Caheraveelane.

Daniel died aged one of pneumonia.
+ 38 F v Ellen O'SULLIVAN was born on 24 Oct 1887. She died on 18 Sep 1972.

  43 M x
Richard SULLIVAN was born on 12 Feb 1900 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died on 16 Mar 1900 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

Richard died at the age of just five weeks of acute bronchitis, the duration of which was four days.
  44 F xi
Julia O'SULLIVAN was born on 27 Jun 1901 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She was christened in Analeentha Church, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She died on 17 Feb 1920 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork (O'Sullivan plot).

Julia died of tuberculosis aged 19. She is buried with her parents in the O'Sullivan family plot in Donoughmore cemetery, although her name is not listed on the headstone.

Note: There are two Donoughmore cemeteries, one in the centre of the village, and a newer one in Stuake, just outside Donoughmore, next to a church built about 2001. Our O'Sullivans are buried in the newer cemetery.
  45 xii
'unknown' SULLIVAN was born in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. 'unknown' died before 2 Apr 1911.

8. Michael (Mike) DOODY (Johanna ) was born about 4 Oct 1862 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co. Limerick. He was christened on 4 Oct 1862 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. He died on 6 Oct 1929 in 10 Belgrave Place, Wellington Road, Cork. He was buried in St. Finbarr's Cemetery, Cork.

Sponsors at Mike's baptism were James Curtin and Mary Hennessy.

The birth certificates of his daughter Hannah and son Michael tell us that Mike was a "merchant" and saddler/harness-maker in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. Mike later worked in the saddlery business in Cork city, initially at 117 George's St. and later on Lavitts Quay. It is known that the family lived for a time on Lavitt's Quay prior to moving to 10 Belgrave Place, off Wellington Road.

Michael also made footballs and hurleys, as evidenced by his advertisements in The Southern Star newspaper, such as this one from the 10 October 1903 edition:

"GAELS, Look Here ! - I Manufacture Football complete with Bladder from 1s 9d to 10s each ; Hurley Balls from 4s to 2s 6d ; and Hurleys from 4d to 1s ; Best Ash Roots from 1s 6d to 2s 6d each. Please Note Address : MICHAEL DOODY, Saddler and Harness-Maker, 117 George's Street, Cork (near G.P.O.)"

Michael married Mary Ann LEONARD, daughter of Michael LEONARD and Mary ROCHE, on 24 Jan 1893 in Kilworth, Co. Cork. Mary was born about 18 Jan 1863 in Kilworth, Co. Cork. She was christened on 18 Jan 1863 in Kilworth, Co. Cork. She died on 5 Apr 1945 in 10 Belgrave Place, Wellington Road, Cork. She was buried in St. Finbarr's Cemetery, Cork.

According to the 1911 census, Mary Ann was a "hotel proprietress". Doodys Hotel was located at 6 Lavitts Quay in Cork, while the family was living at no. 5 at the time of the census.

The census also tells us that Mary Ann and Mike had nine children born alive, only five of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

They had the following children.

  46 F i
Hannah Maria DOODY was born on 10 Jan 1894 in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. She died on 2 Nov 1900 in 117 George's St., Cork.

Hannah died at the age of six. Her death certificate tells us she died of "Cerebro Spinal Meningitis", the duration of which was 21 days.
  47 M ii
Michael DOODY was born on 18 Nov 1895 in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. He died on 15 Dec 1895 in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork.

Michael died at the age of just four weeks of bronchitis, the duration of which was two days.
+ 48 M iii James (Jim) DOODY was born on 14 Nov 1896. He died in Apr 1979.
  49 M iv
Richard DOODY was born on 30 Nov 1897 in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork.
  50 M v
John DOODY was born on 8 Sep 1900 in Cork city. He died on 30 Mar 1970 in probably 117 George's St., Cork. He was buried in St Patrick's Church Grounds, Kilbrittain, Co. Cork.

John studied for the priesthood in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, and was ordained there in 1925. He was serving at the church of Ss. Peter & Paul in Cork city when he was ordained, after which he was sent to the parishes of Teignmouth and Torquay in Devon where he spent a total of five years. In 1930 he was appointed chaplain at the sisters of St. Vincent de Paul in Dunmanway, Co. Cork and from 1933 to 1937 he held the position of chaplain at St. Angela's College in Cork city. He then served as a curate in Watergrasshill, Co. Cork (1937-1944), Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork (1944-1950) and the church of Ss. Peter & Paul in Cork city (1950-1961). In 1961 John was appointed parish priest in Schull, Co. Cork where he spent six years, after which he went to Kilbrittain, Co.Cork as parish priest. He ministered in Kilbrittain until his death in 1970.

John died in the Mercy Hospital, Cork.

  52 F vii
Mary Christina (Girlie) DOODY was born on 11 Nov 1904 in Cork city. She died on 15 Sep 1974 in probably Cork. She was buried in St. Finbarr's Cemetery, Cork.

Girlie never married. She lived in the family home on Belgrave Terrace in Cork.
+ 53 M viii Patrick (Paddy) Joseph DOODY was born on 28 Mar 1907. He died about 1982.

11. Johanna (Hannah) DOODY (Johanna ) was born on 10 Feb 1867 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co.Limerick. She was christened on 11 Feb 1867. She died on 8 Mar 1958 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Sponsors at Hannah's baptism were Maurice Rowan and Ellen Donohoe. Hannah's baptismal date of 11 Feb 1867 may not be correct because the next oldest sibling, Ellen, was baptised only three months before. Or maybe it is Ellen's date of baptism that is incorrect.

Hannah was 91 years of age when she died.

Johanna married David KELLY, son of David KELLY, on 21 Jun 1892 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. David was born about 1855 in Co. Limerick. He died on 25 May 1934 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. He was buried in Darragh Cemetery, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Hannah and her husband, David, farmed in Darraghmore (also spelled Darragh More), Kilfinane (also spelled Kilfinnane), Co. Limerick. It is known that they had grandchildren who live or lived in England.

According to the 1911 census, David and Hannah had been married for 19 years and had seven children born alive, all of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

David died of "acute gastritis", according to his death certificate.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Ellie Doody (presumably Hannah's sister) and John Connory (sic).

Johanna and David had the following children.

  54 F i
Bedina KELLY was born about 1893 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Bedina should not be confused with another Bedina Kelly who was born in 1893 in the townland of Spittle (not far from Darraghmore) to John and Ellen Kelly. Both Bedinas are listed in the 1901 and 1911 censuses. Given that each family had a daughter by the quite unusual name of Bedina (a form of Bridget) and the name David seems to have been traditional in both families, it is possible the two Kelly families were related.

Unfortunately we can find no trace of our Bedina (i.e. from Darraghmore) after the 1911 census. The Bedina from Spittle married Edmund Condon of Glenroe, Co. Limerick in Cork on 7 September 1922. They later lived in Chicago where they raised a family.

Johanna (Hannah) KELLY was born on 29 Jun 1895 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. She died on 7 Jun 1923 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Hannah died at the age of 27 of tuberculosis. She was unmarried.

Catherine (Kathleen) KELLY was born on 26 Oct 1899 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. She died on 1 Jan 1939 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Kathleen died at the age of 39 of tuberculosis from which she had been suffering for 10 years. She was unmarried.

Note: Kathleen's death certificate gives her age at death as 33.
  59 F vi
Helena KELLY was born on 12 Oct 1902 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. She died on 27 Feb 1915 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick.

Helena died at the age of 12 of "Influenza (14 days), Tabes mesenterica (2 months)", tabes mesenterica being a form a tuberculosis.
  60 M vii
David KELLY was born on 17 May 1905 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. He died in possibly 24 Jul 1983 in Main St., Glanworth, Co. Cork. He was buried in St. Dominic's Cemetery, Glanworth, Co. Cork.

It is likely that David, being the only son, inherited the family farm in Darraghmore. If so, it appears he sold it in 1953 as newspaper advertisements from that year tell us that a David Kelly was putting his Darraghmore farm up for auction. The property comprised 61 acres and 15 perches as well as a residence and outhouses.

A newspaper death notice has been located for a David Kelly of Main St., Glanworth, Co. Cork, fomerly of Darraghmore, who died on 24 July 1983. He was "deeply regretted by his sisters, nephew, niece, relatives and friends." As our David above had no brothers, only sisters, I think it likely that this is our David. If so, then it appears he never married. A notice thanking those who sympathised with the family following David's death was inserted in The Irish Examiner of 10 September 1983 by David's "sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew", indicating the niece and nephew mentioned in the death notice were brother and sister.

Margaret Mary KELLY was born on 23 Oct 1913 in Darraghmore, Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. She died.

12. Ellen (Ellie) DOODY (Johanna ) was born on 27 May 1869 in Ardnamoher, Galbally, Co. Limerick. She died on 3 Sep 1954 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

The 1939 Register gives a birth date for Ellie of 18 September 1866 which does not tie in with the birth date of 27 May 1869 provided by a fmily source.

According to her marriage certificate (1894) Ellie was a shopkeeper and lived on Henry St., Tipperary.

Ellen married Matthew RYAN, son of Matthew RYAN, on 6 Feb 1894 in Tipperary town. Matthew was born on 10 Jun 1868 in Co. Tipperary. He died on 13 Feb 1946 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

Matthew's marriage certificate (1894) tells us that he was a commercial traveller at the time, resident in Carlow, Co. Carlow and that his father, a farmer, was also named Matthew.

According to the 1901 census, (the younger) Matthew and his wife, Ellen, and their family were living at that time on George's St. in Cork city. The census also tells us that Matthew was a shopkeeper and he is described as a shopkeeper on the birth certificates of his elder children. However, on the birth certificate of his son Richard and daughter Helena who was born in Cork in 1906 and 1908 respectively, he is described as a "driver" and "traveller" respectively. By the time of the 1911 census the family had moved to Belfast (Gamble St.) where Matthew was working as a "brewer's carter". The 1911 census also tells us that Matthew and Ellen had 11 children born alive, two of whom had died. We also know, from a family source, that Matthew later worked as a shopkeeper in Belfast and then ran a bar and hotel that had the word 'Eagle' in its name.

In the 1930s Matthew and Ellen moved to England, settling in St. Albans. We know from the 1939 Register that they were living in September of that year at 71 Burnham Road, St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

They had the following children.

Michael Francis RYAN was born about 1897 in Cork city. He died on 12 Aug 1942 in Mediterranean Sea.

Michael, a fireman and trimmer with the Merchant Navy during World War II, was lost at sea in 1942 while serving on the S.S. Clan Ferguson (Glasgow). The steamer was a member of the Operation Pedestal convoy sailing from Scotland to Malta when she was sunk off the Tunisian coast by torpedoes and aerial bombs. Michael is remembered on the Tower Hill Memorial (panel 30), which is located on the south side of the garden of Trinity Square, London, close to The Tower of London. The Memorial commemorates men and women of the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets who died in both world wars and who have no known grave.
