    1. [IRL-Surnames] New Data Base - St. John's Cemetery, Albany, NY
    2. Bill & Cathy McGrath via
    3. NOTE: THIS NEW DATA BASE CONTAINS IRISH RECORDS OF INTEREST The latest addition to the transcription projects on the website of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society, www.troyirish.com are the recently discovered interment records of 12,731 individual from the long closed St. John's Cemetery in Albany New York. St. John's Cemetery was located on Delaware Avenue in Albany, New York. To see these records on the TIGS website, click on PROJECTS and then ST. JOHN'S CEMETERY, ALBANY, NY - INTERMENT RECORDS. It had been widely reported that the interment records for this cemetery, covering interments starting over 173 years ago, had been lost or destroyed. However, in a recent chance conversation with the Historian at St. Agnes Cemetery in Menands, New York, it was discovered that the mostly intact St. John's interment book was in the possession of a retired cemetery employee and the book was promptly recovered. St. John's Cemetery was opened in 1841 by St. John's Church in Albany in an area which was considered "country" at that time. However, with the growth of the City of Albany, the cemetery land was wanted for development and in 1878 and 1879, the Albany City Council ordered that no further burials were to be made there and the cemetery had to close. Burials, however, continued as late as 1888-1890 before the cemetery closed and re-interments of the thousands of individuals buried there was started in the early 1900's. This long closed church of St. John's was located on Green Street in Albany's South End and it's parishioners were mainly Irish famine immigrants that began pouring into Albany during the 1820's and 1830's. This "Irish" connection is shown in the following summary of burials of this first generation of Irish immigrants, which, for the most part are identified as to the "County" in Ireland where they came from. It can be assumed that many of the other 46 years of interment records in this cemetery were for the children and grandchildren of these early Irish immigrants. A breakdown of the Irish immigrants identified on the interment records with their home county in Ireland shows the following: Antrim -10 Armagh - 35 Carlow - 80 Cavan - 307 Claire - 62 Cork - 376 Derry - 22 Donegal - 28 Down - 39 Dublin - 52 Fermangh - 30 Galway - 39 Kerry - 76 Kildare - 38 Kilkenny - 195 Kings - 114 Leitrim - 28 Limerick - 160 Londonderry - 5 Longford - 143 Louth - 93 Mayo - 36 Meath - 116 Monaghan - 47 Queens - 114 Roscommon - 159 Sligo - 47 Tipperary - 458 Tyrone - 91 Waterford - 83 Westmeath - 138 Wexford - 131 Wicklow - 43 Ireland-No County - 500 TOTAL IRISH - 3,895 Other countries of origin identified in the interment records list Canada-89, England-30, France-8, Germany-198, Holland-7, Poland-2, Scotland-6, Spain-1 and Wales-2. Also identified were individuals from the following states; California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Virginia. A smaller number of records shows one or two individuals from all over New York State cities, towns and counties while three locations show a heavier concentration; Rensselaer with 106, Greenbush with 77 and New York City with 63. As would be expected, Albany with a total of 5,815 records was shown as the county of origin for the largest number of individuals. Of course this figure includes the second and third generations for those early Irish immigrants. These fantastic records from this recently rediscovered interment book is a wonderful find for genealogists, especially for those researching Irish surnames. As genealogists searching Irish surnames often find out, it is quite rare to find records that identify the Irish county of orgin. Bill McGrath TIGS Project Coordinator Clifton Park, NY

    1. [IRL-Surnames] Patrick COLLIER
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi I'm doing research on the above Patrick COLLIER b c 1810 in Tullamore, OFFALY (Kings county as it was known) who emigrated to New York about the 7th day of August 1837, (from Cork) aged 27 (Catholic). He stayed in the US and we have all the relevant information on him there, would like to find out any information on him from his home in Tullamore. I realise that finding Catholic baptisms for the period he was born is very difficult but thought I would try and find any information from any other records if possible. I have found out that there is a book by Brian Mitchell called "A Guide to Irish Parish Registers". Is it true that the Tullamore registers go back to 1801?? Kind regards Dianna from Oz

    1. [IRL-Surnames] Keever and Coomes
    2. patience
    3. Thank you for accepting me to your list. I am searching for our Keever ancestors. The earliest Keever that I have is our immigrant Martin 1727 and Michel Keever 1730 with their father John Keever 1715. Martin married Catherine Christina Schwester 1727 married 1764 in Pennsylvania, USA. their dependents migrated west to Ohio then Wayne County, Indiana. Michael Keever married Susan Schuster abt. 1735. Michael and Susan's dependents migrated south into North Carolina where for a time there was a town named Keever and also is a Keever cemetery. My line is through Martin. We have John as his father but no wife or birthplace. We would like to establish if his family was in Ireland and would like advise as to the best area to search. I kind of wonder if there might be an Mc Ivor connection. My maternal line is Coomes. James Tucker Coomes was born in Maryland of English parents according to several census. Family legend states that his father was the captain of a ship carrying people to the US from Ireland when he was lost at sea. It is said that James T. Coomes went to sea in search of his father. Failing he returned to Baltimore Maryland to find his mother and siblings gone. He never saw them again. This may have been the early 1840s as he migrated into SW Virginia and married Elizabeth Dunford in 1843. Elizabeth died in 1855 and he remarried in 1878 to Amanda Davis my ancestor. I'm afraid this is really searching for a needle in a haystack as we do not have name of his father, the date of birth or death, nor the name of the ship. If their is an area in Ireland where the Coomes may be concentrated that would be helpful. A lead to a clue would be wildly appreciated. . Thank you for any help or advise. Patience

If your sending email address is not on the subscriber list, your email will be rejected. ****************** "Why am I not getting list mail?" Answer: Check the HelpDesk notices in the yellow box for announcements about any technical problems with Rootsweb mail. http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ If you don't find the answer to your problem on the HelpDesk page you need to check if you are still subscribed to the list. You can get a list of all your subscribed to mailing lists from Password Central: http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ If Password Central doesn't include all lists to which you should be subscribed, re-subscribe to any lists that are missing from your subscribed lists by sending a new e-mail to: LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com (replacing the word LISTNAME with the actual list name). Put only the word SUBSCRIBE in the subject and message body of your e-mail. ****************** Should anyone need further elaboration then you may give me a contact. --Manaia [List-Admin] IRL-SURNAMES-admin@rootsweb.com My gratitude to Lorine McGinnis Schulze for sharing.
