Thank you for your very kind offer. I'm sorry all I have is the name Mary and this could have been his Mother or Sister.
Very briefly I have Army Record information with some details about Michael. As it's been transcribed I've allowed for spelling errors.Michael was born in Kilcummin/Kilcummen. He enlisted in the Army at Cork Cove, Ireland in 1838. I have no confirmation of the regiment he joined at that time. In 1854 his regiment (then the 77th ) was sent to the Crimea. Michael was posthumously awarded the Crimean war medal with clasps for the battles of Alma, Inkerman & Sevastpol. He Died in Chichester Army Barracks, England aged 35 yrs. Worked his birth year 1821 from death information, I also have his death certificate. He left a wife and 2 children. Ann was his wife's name. Have not found a marriage record yet! John his son born 1852 in Scotland, and Ellen his daughter born 1853, Scotland. While a soldier he paid remittances to a Mary & Ann McDonough, Ann being his wife and Mary could be either his Mother or Sister. Family information on John my Great-grandfather is that he ran away & joined a fishing crew that went to Newfoundland. He saved a lot of money from this work and invested it in the U.S. Banks. During a time of depression they crashed and he lost his savings. He spent sometime visiting his Aunt, whom I've assumed was Michael's Sister. His Mother Ann's family were all in Dorset and didn't venture too far from there. I've still to post complete information on site. May have some extra details by next week so will leave it until then.
Thank you for the prefix Mc info., and no I didn't know about the free Kerry records. Your help and information is much appreciated.
