I have just discovered that my ggg grandparents were James Sweeney and Rose Walsh. Their son, John, was born in Rathangan, near Edenderry in about 1840. He joined the army and married Rose Anne Dolan in Toronto, Canada 6 Nov 1864. Their daughter, Sarah Jane Sweeney, was born in Toronto in about 1865. They also had twin sons, Patrick and John F Sweeney, who were born and baptised (Catholic) in Montreal in May 1868. If anyone knows anything about James and Rose I would love to hear from them.
