Galway Ireland


Thomas Dowd, information from the death certificate, as supplied by his wife, Bridget Naughton.

Birthday    12 May 1858.  I have found birthdays from 14 March 1860 to 12 May 1859.  

Father listed on death certificate.  John Dowd, birthplace County Galway, Ireland.

Mother listed on death certificate.   Catherine Fitzmorris, birthplace County Galway, Ireland.

A search of the Irish Family History Foundation revealed a marriage 24 February 1857, in the Parish of Glinsk, County Galway of John Doud and Catherine Fitzmorris.

Witness were Patrick Morris and Cecelia Fitzmorris.

Baptism Thomas Doud  7 June 1859, parish Glinsk, County Galway.  This would be about one month after Thomas birth.

Address Kilbegnet And Donamon.

Sponsors Patrick Doud and Honoria Dowd.   Were Patrick and Honoria married?  Were they siblings of John Doud?

What makes me think that this is true is on the information from the Diocese of Pittsburgh for sponsors for the Dowd children listed a Richard Fitzmorris and a Richard Fitzmaurice.     Is this my grandfathers Uncle?   

I have found no Sweeney names among the list of sponsors.


What I need to do is find out how to get the whole record with all of the births in this family.
