Daniel (Dan) SULLIVAN [Parents] was born about 1840 in Caheraveelane, Kilshannig; or Glynn, Mourneabbey. He died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork. Daniel married Mary DOODY on 20 Jan 1880 in Galbally, Co. Limerick.

Dan met his wife, Mary Doody from Galbally, Co. Limerick through one of her brothers. Sometime in the 1870s, this brother (it is not known if it was James, John, Mike or Richard) - arrived in the Glynn area from Galbally looking for a job. He had failed a secondary school exam, and because of of trouble at home as a result, he had left Galbally to go looking for work. Dan's father, Séamus, took him in. In his free time, Mary's brother used to join Dan and his brother, Jim, in their athletic pursuits. One day, the boys were pole-vaulting and Mary's brother broke his arm; his mother was contacted and so she made the journey - by carriage - from Galbally to Glynn. When her son told her of the generosity of the Sullivans, she invited them to Galbally for a visit. When Dan went to Galbally, he met Mary for the first time, and they later married. Just over a year after the marriage, Mary's sister Julia married Dan's brother Jim.

Mary DOODY [Parents] was born about 21 Sep 1854 in Knockainy or Galbally, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 21 Sep 1854 in Galbally, Co. Limerick. She died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Co. Cork. She was buried in Donoughmore Cemetery, Stuake, Co. Cork. Mary married Daniel (Dan) SULLIVAN on 20 Jan 1880 in Galbally, Co. Limerick.

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were Thomas Quirke and Mary Fahy.

Mary and Dan are buried in the O'Sullivan plot in Donoughmore cemetery, although their names are not listed on the headstone.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Dan and Mary were Robert Love and Julia Doody. Robert Love was a family friend; he was a policeman stationed in the Galbally area and was a brother of the man who would eventually purchase the Ballyknockin farm of Dan's brother, Jim, following the eviction of Jim's family.

Dan's residence at the time of his marriage was Ballinamona (which is the registration area in which Glynn is located). Mary's residence was Ardnamoher, Galbally.

They had the following children.

Ellen O'SULLIVAN was born about 20 Nov 1880 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. She was christened on 20 Nov 1880 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

Ellen is listed, aged 30 and single, in the 1911 census return for her parents' household, suggesting that she still lived in the family home. Unfortunately we have no further information on Ellen.
  M ii James (Jamesy Dan) O'SULLIVAN was born about 10 Jan 1883. He died in Jun 1966.
  M iii
Michael O'SULLIVAN was born about 3 Oct 1884 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was christened on 3 Oct 1884 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died about 1900 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

I have been told by a family source that Michael died at the age of 15 following an accident on the farm in Glynn involving a horse. However, I have come across the death certificate of a Michael Sullivan of Glynn who died of pneumonia in Glynn on 8 May 1897, aged 11. The informant was his mother, Mary. Although our Michael would have been 12 years old in May 1897 I think it possible that this death certificate is that of our Michael. Of course there could have been another Sullivan family with similarly named family members living in Glynn at that time.

It is not known for certain where Michael is buried but it is assumed that burial took place in the family plot in Donoughmore Cemetery in Stuake, Co. Cork.
  M iv
Daniel (Dan) O'SULLIVAN was born about 26 Oct 1889 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He was christened on 26 Oct 1889 in Mourneabbey, Co. Cork. He died in Nov 1963. He was buried in Gouldshill Cemetery, Mallow, Co. Cork.

Dan never married. He lived with his brother Jamesy Dan and his family and is buried with Jamesy Dan.

Mary O'SULLIVAN was born on 10 Jul 1896 in Glynn, Mourneabbey, Co. Cork.

Unfortunately we have no information on Mary.

Denis TREACY [Parents] was born in between about 1831 and 1848 in probably Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He died on 19 Mar 1899 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary from bronco-pneumonia. He was buried in Kilfeacle Cemetery, Co. Tipperary. Denis married Bridget ALLIS on 5 Feb 1894 in Anacarty, Cappagh, Co. Tipperary.

It has not been possible to determine Denis's date of birth. According to his marriage certificate he was 45 when he married in February 1894, indicating he was born around 1848. However, according to the death register he was 67 when he died in March 1899, showing he was born around 1831. This is a big difference. Because ages on marriage certificates (where given) are regarded as being generally more accurate than those on death certificates (as death certificate ages in those days were sometimes based on how old someone looked in old age or during their final illness), it would seem more likely that DEnis was born around 1848. However, in 1848 his mother Mary would have been about 50 years of age. Therefore I have to say for now that Denis was born between about 1831 and 1848.

Denis inherited the estate of his widowed mother (valued at 'under £800') who died in 1865. The Irish Calendar of Wills and Administrations states that probate was granted on 28 November 1872 to Denis 'under decree 15 November 1872 Treacy v Treacy'. Does this mean that Denis's mother's will was contested and that Denis was involved in a legal dispute with a family member?  

It is believed that Denis died of tuberculosis.

Bridget ALLIS [Parents] was born about 1863 in probably Hollyford, Co. Tipperary. She died on 14 Jun 1941 in Lackenacreena House, Hollyford, Co. Tipperary. She was buried in Kilfeacle Cemetery, Co. Tipperary. Bridget married Denis TREACY on 5 Feb 1894 in Anacarty, Cappagh, Co. Tipperary.

Bridget was from Hollyford, Co. Tipperary. She was widowed young, only about five years into her marriage to Denis. She died at the home of her brother James, having outlived Denis by about 40 years and her only child, Sean, by about 20.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Denis Ryan of Soloheadbeg and Mary Josephine Ryan of Hollyford.

They had the following children.

  M i
John (Seán) J. TREACY was born on 14 Feb 1895 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 16 Feb 1895 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. He died on 14 Oct 1920 in Talbot St., Dublin. He was buried on 18 Oct 1920 in Kilfeacle, Co. Tipperary.

Sponsors at Seán's baptism were Michael Allis and Kate Allis. He was an only child. After his father died when he was only four, he and his mother moved from Soloheadbeg to Hollyford where his mother had grown up. They returned to Soloheadbeg when Seán was about 11. From an early age, Seán had nationalist leanings, and in his teens he joined the Irish Republican Brotherhood which later evolved into the Irish Republican Army (IRA).

From 'My Fight for Irish Freedom', the memoir of Dan Breen, an IRA comrade of Seán's and later a politician,  we have the following description of Seán's physical appearance:

'He had been delicate during his boyhood because of his fast rate of growth. He was almost a six-footer, slightly stooped in carriage. He weighed about twelve stone, and in an emergency manifested the strength of a lion; this was chiefly due to his amazing will-power. His movements were brisk, as if he were in a constant hurry. His hair was of very fine texture like spun-silk, almost mouse-coloured. He was short-sighted and wore glasses'.

In August 1917, Seán was arrested and spent two months in jail. The following year he was rearrested and spent four months in jail. Then on 21 January 1919, along with other members of the IRA's Third Tipperary Brigade, including Dan Breen, Seán took part in the Soloheadbeg ambush in which three members of the Royal Irish Constabulary, who were escorting a transportation of explosives, were waylaid and shot dead. This was the first military incident of the War of Independence.

Seán and the others who took part in the ambush now had a price on their heads, and Seán Hogan, one of those involved, was captured shortly afterwards. In May 1919 at Knocklong railway station in Co. Limerick, in a successful attempt by Seán Treacy and others to free Seán Hogan as he was being transferred to jail, Seán Treacy was shot in the neck and seriously wounded. He recovered, and throughout the latter half of 1919 and most of 1920 he led attacks against the British in Dublin and Co. Tipperary. But on 14 October 1920 in Dublin, following a raid by British forces on the Republican Outfitters shop at 94 Talbot St., where Seán was meeting with IRA comrades, he was shot and killed on the street as he fled the shop. He was 25 years of age. A small plaque above the door of the shop marks the location of the Republican Outfitters. Seán is remembered each year on the anniversary of his death at a commemoration ceremony in Kilfeacle where he is buried.

I have read that, at the time of his death, Sean was engaged to a May Quigley, but I have no further information on May.

James ALLIS died before 5 Feb 1894. James married Catherine STAPLETON.

Catherine STAPLETON died. Catherine married James ALLIS.

Edward ALLIS was born on 15 Jan 1868 in Lackenacreena, Hollyford, Co. Tipperary.
  F iv
Mary Anne ALLIS was born about 1869 in probably Hollyford, Co. Tipperary. She died after Jan 1936.

Mary Anne lived in the family home in Hollyford, Co. Tipperary, with her brother Jim. Following the death in 1899 in Soloheadbeg (also Co. Tipperary) of the husband of her sister Bridget, Bridget left Soloheadbeg with her son, Seán, and returned to her old family home in Hollyford ro live with her brother Jim and sister Mary Anne. Then, around 1906, when Jim got married, Bridget and Seán returned to Soloheadbeg accompanied by Mary Anne who helped raise Seán.
  M v Michael A. ALLIS was born on 8 Nov 1870. He died in Jan 1936.
  F vi Hanora (Nora) ALLIS was born about 1874.

George ALLIS was born in 1875 in probably Hollyford, Co. Tipperary.
  F viii
Catherine (Katie) ALLIS was born about 1876 in probably Hollyford, Co. Tipperary.

John Joseph LOGAN [Parents] was born in Jan 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 13 Jan 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He died in 1905. John married Anne (Annie) Josephine MCPARTLAND on 12 Feb 1877 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

Sponsors at John's baptism were Charles Meehan and Margaret Meehan. John worked as a station master for the railway company. His address at the time of his marriage in 1877 was Glooria, Co. Roscommon, and following his marriage, he and his wife, Annie, lived in Greatmeadow (also spelled Great Meadow), Boyle, Co. Roscommon. They later moved to Cartron, Co. Roscommon.

Anne (Annie) Josephine MCPARTLAND [Parents] was born in Jul 1849 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 8 Jul 1849. She died in 1911 in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. Anne married John Joseph LOGAN on 12 Feb 1877 in Cootehall, Co. Roscommon.

According to her marriage certificate, Annie's address at the time of her marriage in 1877 was Rockingham, Co. Roscommon. The occupation of her father, Myles, is given as coachman. Perhaps Myles worked at Rockingham Demesne.

Witnesses to the marriage of Annie and John were Charles Meehan and Catherine McPartland. Presumably Catherine was Annie's sister who married John's brother Peter.

At the time of the 1901 census, Annie, John and their family were living in the station house in the townland of Cartron in the parish of Kilmore, Co. Roscommon. Following John's death in 1905 Annie moved with some of her children to Moycullen, Co. Galway where her son Peter was working as station master. The 1911 census tells us that Annie was still with Peter in Moycullen.

Note: McPartland is sometimes written on documents as McParthlan, Parthlan and Partlan. All the variations seem interchangeable.

They had the following children.

  F i
Agnes LOGAN was born on 27 Jan 1880 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She died on 4 Feb 1880 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

Agnes died eight days after her birth.
  F ii
Annie Mary Josephine LOGAN was born on 10 Feb 1882 in Greatmeadow, Boyle, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 14 Feb 1882.

Birth and baptism records located for a Joseph Logan born 10 February 1882 to John Logan and Anne McPartland might in fact relate to Anne, or to a twin of Anne's. If so, sponsors at her or her twin's baptism were Thomas McPartland and Bridget Hargarden. Annie's name appears in the 1901 census return for her parents' household. Her age is given as 20 and her occupation looks like "clerk". There is no Joseph listed.
  F iii Emily Marion LOGAN was born on 22 May 1884. She died on 7 Jul 1966.
  M iv Peter John LOGAN was born on 12 Apr 1886. He died on 3 Aug 1968.
