    I am searching for the birth, marriage and death of Annie (Hannah) ADAMS nee CASLEY/CASSERLY born in Newry, County Down, Ireland in about 1860 (info gleaned from 1911 census). Annie's husband was Joseph ADAMS born in Russia in about 1839 but is stated to be a resident in England at that time. The couple do not appear on the 1891 census but are listed on the 1901 living in Liverpool which is also their residence in 1911. I have Joseph's death certificate (died 1920 in Liverpool) and this does not give any further information (a Russian name, exact place of birth etc). There is no will for him. I have also looked in overseas births for him without success. All descendants who knew this couple and their children are now deceased.
    Any suggestions where I go next with this couple?

    Philip DEVEREUX - Ireland??                                                                                                                                                                                                   My brickwall is to find out where in Ireland my 4th Great Granddad Philip Devereux and his wife Catherine Murphy came from. They appear on the 1841 census living in Liverpool and have had all their children by now, William, Phillip, John and Ann. All who we think are born Liverpool - but Philip (jnr) did put Ireland on one census. We suspect it may be Wexford or Cork - but not proven.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Sonja Broad

    Patrick and Bridget GREEN PEMBROKE, Ireland to Canada, 19th century                                                                                                Going to post here out of sheer desparation. Paternal great great grandparents were Patrick and Bridget Green Pembroke. She lists her birthplace as Ireland in a Canadian census, and church records from Prince Edward Island for their children show Patrick as being deceased by 1860. I find no record of their immigration to Canada, but I know they didn't just "magically" appear there. Any search tips or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.                                                                                                                                                  Janie P.

    Good Morning everyone, here is my brickwall that I can't breakdown. It's my wife's g grandfather Andrew (Andy) Flood. All information comes from either family knowledge, Cemetery records or US Census records from 1870 - 1930 Andrew Flood was b. either 1835 or 1840 somewhere in Ireland. He came to the US in 1865 and worked as a farm laborer in Somers NY where he lived and died. He married Margaret ...(last name unknown) about 1868 here in the US and they had 9 children that lived. Margaret was b. in Ireland in1836. At least one of his sons Patrick Henry Flood worked on the Railroad. He died Nov 28, 1933 and is buried at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Somers NY. I have church & cemetery records that documents that.  My brickwall is I have know idea where he came from in Ireland or what his wife's maiden name was so I am at a total standstill. I have talked to everyone in the family and no one knows. Any help or suggestions. Thanks......Ken Merriman

    Belfast, Northern Ireland. My ancestor, James Mitchell, had twin daughters, Mary and Jane, born there in 1868. Mary and Jane came to America and settled in Connecticut. Mary was my great grandmother. James Mitchell is my brick wall. I have been unable to find anything more about him, other than his wife was identified on one document as being Mary Ross, and on another document, Katherina Gilroy.  Jane Mitchell's death certificate was dated 1925. It stated that her father was James Mitchell and her mother was Katherina Gilroy. The informant was "hospital records". She died at the Connecticut State Hospital, and may have been a long-term patient there. She never married. The death certificate said she was born May 4, 1867 in Ireland (her gravestone says 1868). Mary Mitchell's death certificate was dated 1937. The informant was her daughter, Minnie McElhinney. She stated that Mary was born on May 4, 1868, in Belfast, Northern Ireland and that her parents were James Mitchell and Mary Ross. So far, I am giving more credence to the birth date of May 4, 1868, and the birth mother being Mary Ross. I believe baptismal records, if any, might be found in a Protestant church in Belfast, but I don't know where to look for them.   Margaret Quivey DeMarco

    would like peoples opinions please. Have been trying to find my grandad John Collins mother, on his army records he was born in abbeyfeale, Limerick abt 1883. His father is Michael -on his marriage cert. His uncle William is his next of kin on his army records in 1891 so am guessing michael is dead. Its dawned on me that because my mums eldest sister born to john collins is called Bridget that may be his mother is also Bridget- what do people think? after all his only born boy who sadly only survived for 3mths was named john michael.- after him and his dad.  Julie Simmons

    Hi everybody ,it is my first appearance on the Brickwall Club,It sounds very interesting especially as I have hit a brickwall in finding my grt grt grands mum.His name is Martin Kelly and he was born in 1833 in Kilchreest near Loughrea in Galway Ireland.Martins family then moved in 1837 to the mountain village of Killeeneedeema until the potato famine struck Ireland.I know Martins father is called Thomas Kelly and I have a strong feeling from gathered information that Martins mum is called Mary Egan but I need the final proof and that is the brickwall.Thomas Kelly and Mary Egan had two daughters Catherine b.1837 and Elizabeth b,1838.I can not find where Thomas Mary and Catherine and Elizabeth went after the potato famine.I also cant find any Egan would appreciate any help advice or suggestions.Martin Kelly came to England and joined the Cheshire Regiment of the British Army in 1853 and served 21 years before settling in Salford Lancs.Martin married an English ladt Eliza Bloom from Sheffield and they had 10 children and I am descended from the eldest William Kelly.Your help would be great in knocking down this brickwall.Martin's mum deserves her place in the Kelly family history.Alan Kelly

    John KENNEDY, bn 1801, Belfast

    My 3rd-greatgrandfather John Kennedy was born 21 May 1801 in Belfast, Ireland, according to a family Bible entry. He died 02 Feb 1865 in Cartersville, GA. He arrived in Laurens SC 10 Nov 1819; and in 17 April 1822 he petitioned to become a denizen of SC. I have been trying to find him in Irish records online, but only one was found in his birth year, and he was born in March in St. Anne's Parish in Belfast and was a foundling. No mention was made of his parents in the Bible. Two male cousins have also had DNA tests done and so far they have not been helpful. Any help in finding his birth parents will be greatly appreciated.  Sandra Coulter
