    Default Greetings / Family Keohane in pre-war Liverpool

    Hello Everyone. Do any of you know someone with the surname Keohane? I'm currently on a quest to discover my family's past and have been informed by my auntie last night that her Grandad (therefore my Gr-Grandad, Jeremiah Keohane, born in Ireland in 1863) resided in Liverpool before World War II (he resided in Salford for a long, long time beforehand). According to her, he binned his wife (?) and settled with a woman much (!) younger than he and had 5 children with her. My auntie remembers him visiting while she was quite young to inform her father (my Grandad) of his news and God knows what else. In theory, if this is all 100% true, then there's every chance some rather old lady (ies) or gentleman (men) and their families are out there. If you know something about a Keohane in your neighbourhood who may fit into this little story or you can point me in a useful direction, please contact me. Sincere thanks in advance and best wishes, Gary

    A very good morning to you Dot (and Norm) on this wonderful (still) spring morning.

    My apologies for not writing sooner. Sincere thanks for providing me with the information above, although I regret to inform you that details from the 1901 Census, which you've kindly quoted above aren't entirely accurate.

    Margaret Ellen was b. in 1887.
    John JOSEPH b. is correct.
    It was indeed CatherinE.
    The infant who unfortunately died was Ellen b. 1896 & d. 1898.
    The last 3 are correct, although dates given are those at the time of births being registered. Augustine Noel (my Grandad) was born in December 1905.

    Next come the 3 children born between 1919 and 1929. Without the want to question your findings, just how accurate is this information? My 83-year auntie's mentioned the fact that her Grandad did have offspring with his partner. As for James D. Keohane being the youngest, there's every chance (one would hope) he's still alive? Would you (or anyone else) have a confirmed address so I may contact him by post (again, if he's till alive of course)? Also, I'm actually wondering why they were called Keohane and not Danks bearing in mind they didn't get married 'til just before his death. Last but not least, I contacted the Prescot Parish Council (Mr / Mrs Rigby to be precise) via email on Thursday to enquire if my Gr-Grandad is buried in Prescot and if yes, precisely where. To think, I lived in Warrington in my teens, which is only 11 miles away!

    Would you be able to answer my queries Dot (or anyone else for that matter)? Especially finding out if James is still with us? I very much look forward to your reply. With sincere regards, Gary
