Blin BROWN was the only member of her generation that I recall meeting. My Grandfather, her brother, died before I was born. Ironically, I first encountered most of this document threough Wendy JACK of Australia. Then I was given the original by Gika JACKSON. I have only footnoted a few entries as most of it is covered off elsewhere on this web site. It was likely written abt 1938.

[1] This would be Borris, Co. Carlow.

[2] Various spellings. In the family tree, I have used “O’Laughlin”

[3] John SEAWRIGHT.

[4] In my records, I use the spelling “BIRCH”.

[5] Actually, she was Elizabeth’s step mother. It would seem that a previous wife, Jane BAXTER was her mother.
