In Reply to: KEANE county Clare specifically near Cooraclare by elizabeth gibbons-griffith of 94931

Elizabeth,a few bits and pieces.

1901 Irish census:
Drumellihy Westropp,Drumellihy,co Clare

John Campbell age 41,head of house,Roman Catholic,born Clare,farmer,married
Winifred Campbell age 28,wife,R.C.,born Clare,farmer
Patt Campbell age 7,son,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Mary Campbell age 5,daughter,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Danniel Campbell age 4,son,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
John Campbell age 3,son,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Michael Campbell age 1,son,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Anne Campbell age 80,mother,R.C.,born Clare,widow
(this is a brother to Ellen and Anne is Anne (Keane)

1911 Irish census:
Drumellihy Westropp,Drumellihy,co Clare
the Campbell family is the same except for the addition of the following children;
William Campbell age 10,son,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Sarah Campbell age 8,daughter,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Ellen Campbell age 7,daughter,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Honor Campbell age 4,daughter,R.C.,born Clare,scholar
Margaret Campbell age 3,daughter,R.C.,born Clare,
Joseph Campbell age 2,son,R.C.,born Clare

additional info on census return says John and Winifred are married 22 years with 13 children born and 11 living

Anne Campbell
died Jan-March 1903
age 80
born 1823
registration district:Kilrush

Daniel Campbell
died 1874
age 64
born 1810
registration district:Kilrush

Griffiths Valuation:1855

Daniel Campbell

Daniel Campbell

Tithe Applotment Books:13 August 1825

Michael Campbell
townland:Dromelihy(Lord Conyngham's)

Patrick Campbell
townland:Dromelihy(Mr Westropp's)

Timothy Campbell

I would say that one of these men is Daniel's father and the other two are probably uncles.

Graveyard Inscriptions:
Campbell-In loving memory of John Campbell died 21 March 1925 his wife Winifred died 11 March 1945 their son Daniel died 28 March 1981 age 84 years RIP Erected by their family Campbell

Kilmacduane Graveyard,Cooraclare
grave #35
Here lie the remains of Michael Campbell who departed this life July the 24th 1848 age 72 years Erected by his beloved wife Catherine Campbell alias Mescall for her and posterity May his soul rest in peace Amen
(is the Michael from the three men in Tithe Applotment books.
I couldn't locate a marriage for Daniel and Anne but I will look about some more.Do you have any idea where she may have been from?There are many Keane/Keans in Clare in this timeframe.Hope this helps,Kim
