My grandmother Alice Mary Kilmartin [born: Mary Alice Wyle] had told me some family names on her mother's side of the family. Among those names were Wyle [her father's], McCormick [her mother's], Carey, and Foley are family related last names. I later found the same information in decent book in a library in Ireland.
In 2003, I came across information on my family decent, for my mom Kathleen Ann Kilmartin's [Wadowski-M] side of the family.
Her family comes from CORK COUNTY, IRELAND, AND BALLYMOORE, IRELAND [Ballymoore was wiped out in the Potato famine], which is near the coast and in South Ireland.
My Aunt Terry told me, "My grandfather Jeremiah [Jerry] Kilmartin's father was John Kilmartin from Albany, N.Y. and he was an accomplished Fireman. Jeremiah was an only child, but his father had brother's out of Albany, N.Y."
Further research shows that the Kilmartin family came over from Ireland: William Kilmartin and Johanna Lane [M.] and they had two twin boys William and John Kilmartin that I best recollect. I received a family tree from a cousin of Jeremiah Sr. Kilmartin via this site in 2003. They showed up to Ellis, Island in the later 1800's and they settled in the Albany, N.Y. vicinity.
My mother Kathleen Ann Kilmartin who died November 26th., 1992 of brain and lung cancer is currently buried near her father Jeremiah Sr. Kilmartin [died of Lymphomia Cancer in Albany, NY V.A. Hospital] and a toddler brother [hit by a car] named Jeremiah Jr. Kilmartin in a family plot located in the Holy Redeemer Cemetary, Shenectady, N.Y., which is not far from Albany, N.Y.
My father Robert Stanley Wadowsk died after a bad car accident and police brutality after a recent surgey in Miami, Florida March 18, 2004. He is buried in an unmarked grave near his mother Alice Rita Chesitis [name at D]. His mother was born Alice Rita Kowalik. She currently has a brother Eddie Kowalik who still resides in the Worcester, MA. area who within the past year lost his wife of 50 years Judy Kowalik [M]. There is a sister of his who lives in N.J. that I do not communicate with.
Brother Bobby moved in 1993 approximately to MILLIS, MA. where many of the existing Kilmartin family resides. My mother Kathleen Ann Kilmartin was the oldest of nine children [In oldest to youngest order: Kathleen, Jeremiah Jr., Billy, Alice, Madeline [Madge], Terry, Patrick, Michael, and Patricia [Aunt]. I am the oldest grandchild of many from Alice and Jerry Kilmartin. [In order of oldest to youngest: Patricia [Tricia] 'me', Robert [Bobby] lousy 'brother', Jeremiah 3rd. [Jerry], Meredith, Katie, Kyla, Kendra, Thomas, Wyle, [Aunt Patricia's three children as with Patton and Patrick's youngest son: Those five youngest grandchildren names I do not know].
I grew up in Massachusetts, I lived eight years in Hawaii, I lived 15 months in U.K. I met and married my British/Irish spouse in Honolulu, Hawaii and I later lived in U.K. with him until we were force separated via customs on May 04, 1998- after our being married for well over six years and having had two children together, and then I spent six years in Miami, Florida [my dad had lived in Hawaii and later in South Florida], where I completed my bachelor's in Legal Studies. Currently, I live on the Cape since August 2004- I moved back to MA. March 2004. I have a boyfriend of 6 yrs. named Tommy Long.
Some of the relatives who years are listed alone in the family tree I estimated from information that I have. Example, my father's dad died when he was four and his father was 25 years of age at the time. All information is within two years of time accuracy; however, for Charles Wadowski [my dad's dad]I may be off some more. My dad's father Charles was one of nine children. Most information that has been submitted by me on this site has close to perfect accuracy.*
