Other marriages:
CHEASTY, Mary Margaret

At the time of his second marriage, in 1896, William was living in Old Grange, Clonea, Co. Waterford. Later he and his wife, Mary, lived in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, where William ran The Clonmel Nationalist newspaper, which was established in 1890. He was manager, editor and publisher of the newspaper - and possibly its founder - and it is thought he owned the building in which the newspaper was printed. The paper is still in business and is now just called The Nationalist.  

We know from family sources that William had been studying for a degree in horticulture when he lost a hand in an agricultural accident. Unable to continue his studies he turned to journalism. He was arrested some time later (year unknown) for writing allegedly inflammatory nationalist articles - possibly in The Clonmel Nationalist - which in turn apparently led to an attack of some kind on the Irish parliament by the Irish Parliamentary Party. Unfortunately we have not managed to come across any further details of the incident, and there is a possibility that it was another nationalist journalist at the time named William Martin Murphy (1844-1919) who wrote the articles that led to the attack. However, the Wikipedia page on The Nationalist tells us that "It was formed to represent the views of the nationalist community in Tipperary, which led to the first editor been jailed under the Coercion Act on charges that he had intimidated a cattle dealer for taking a farm from which tenants had been evicted". Any information in this regard, or anything further on our William's involvement in nationalist affairs, would be much appreciated. If you can help, please contact Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com.

We do know that our William was influential in getting the statue of "The '98 Man", commemorating those nationalists involved in the 1798 Rebellion, erected in Clonmel. The statue, in front of the town hall, was unveiled in 1904.
