Records of South West Cork families such as Atteridge, Brooks, Coghlan, Daly, Haggertys, Gallagher, Gosnell, Lannin, Hithcock, Justice, King, Levis, Love, Dukelow, Beamish, Stout, Jermyn, Kingston, Raycroft, Jennings, Pick, Riordan, Sullivan, Skuce, Shannon, Swanton, Woulfe, Young, in Registers of Rochester New York, Register Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, Rochester Genealogy Relevant
Often through going through these records and the Canadian and USA Census and death and marriage it is possible to establish the dates of birth and marriage of Irish born, North Americans. This is of particular value in view of the loss, destruction or non availability Irish Records.
Many thanks to Sharon Haggerty for this.
Some of the work done by Sharon Haggerty in extracting records: She extracted what are probably thousands of records from parish registers. In the case of Cork they include many of the parishes extending from Skull to roughly Innishannon and south to the coast.
Website for Mt Hope Cemetery in Rochester, and that was a real find, but this site is even better. They have scanned numerous church registers—mostly not indexed. She has been through three of them so far, starting with the 266 pages of one Episcopal register:
This one that has the families I am interested in. There are lots of SW Cork names, many of them found in Skibbereen and/or Ross parish: a few Haggertys plus Swanton, Lannin, Levis, Dukelow, Bemish [sic], Stout, Kingston, Raycroft, Jennings. Skuce, others, some of which indicate where the person came from. e.g., image 160 shows Dukelows came from “Scull”, Cork, Ireland; image 135 shows Hosfords from Bandon.
Some other examples that Sharon picked up on [square brackets are a comment from me]:
List of Communicants 1887:
image 135 of 266 – 3 Lannins said to have been born in S Johns, Peterboro Ont”
Martha (McCullagh) Lannin
Fannie Willis Lannin
[1871 census for Peterborough shows following Ch of England family: Thomas 33, Martha 29, Fanny 10, William 8, Frank 5, Eva 3 and Fredrick 1. Thomas was a merchant, Martha born Ireland but all others born Ontario. In 1881 Martha is a widow and there is one more child, Thomas. Also of interest, William is then said to be Willie—I’ll bet the record showing a child Fannie Willis is actually 2 children, Fannie and Willis/Wm/Willie—I also found an ancestry tree for this family-

Eliza (Haggerty) McCue born Scull, Cork. Ire. 1836 (birth year? more likely immigration year?)
[does the name McCue ring any bells for you?]
1847 image 159
Cath. (Williamson) Tanner
[this one is interesting as I had found a marriage record in the marriage license bonds listing and had suggested the Catherine Tanner in Rochester might have been Catherine Williamson
