My great grandfather was Jeremiah DELANEY b. abt. 1845 in Ballinakill. He married a girl named Maria (surname unknown) and they settled in Liverpool. Their children were Jeremiah, Christina (our grandmother) and Mary - all born in Liverpool.
Does anybody know who Maria was, where she was born and where they married?
I found the following record but don't know if it is anything to do with our family - Marriages June Qtr 1870 Liverpool 1837-1924 8b 365 Jeremiah DELANEY & Mary NOLAN.
My sister and I visited Ballinakill in July 2003 where we were shown old parish records by Father Sean Conlon and we met Christy O'Shea.We also met some of our distant relatives, the Delaney's who run the local pub.
It was a really pleasant week and we came back with lots of information but, we still don't know who Maria was and where she came from.
Can anybody help!Are you a distant relation of Jeremiah DELANEY of Ballinakill?
