Clowry Personal Family Trees

Very often I get sent family tree drawings that people have created over the years and passed onto me. These trees provide vital assistance when trying to make links from one family tree to another. Most of these documents do not come with supporting documents and through experience, it can be often more prudent to think that information may not be 100% on them until you can verify the information.
(Please note: These trees are certainly never complete but can be used as a guide when trying to research your own family tree.)

Clowry Letter 1908

(Please note: Many of the links on this page, link to www.geni.com. You will need to setup a free geni.com account to view the links and the profiles associated with them. If you are having any difficulties with any of the links, please leave a comment below. )

One of the most interesting items that I have come across in my research was a transcription of two letters written about 1908. John Clowry from Castledermot, Kildare had received the transcription from an American visitor (Cathy Bordenaro) in the 1990’s.  John Clowry had kindly passed it on to me. I uploaded the letter to the online Carlow Rootsweb mailing list to see if anyone could offer any information. Veronica(Ronnie) Shorten offered me detailed information about the family in the letter. Roger Nowlan kindly researched and wrote an article about the letter for a local Carlow newspaper.

Background to the Letter
The letter had been passed to Cathy Bordenaro USA from her ancestors. Cathy’s great great great grandmother was Brigit Kehoe (or Kehough) Clowry, wife of John Clowry and daughter-in-law of Jeremiah (Darby) and Mary Crowe Clowry/Anne[????]. John was born 1786 and died 1847 and is buried in Newton Churchyard.  He married Brigit Kehoe in 1821 and they lived on Ballystarna farm.  She left for America 2 years after he died in 1849 and died here in 1867.

Thomas, the author of the letter and Robert were brothers.  Robert was president of the Western Union Telegraph in the Civil War so he was here in the US and he had no children.  Thomas and Robert’s father was John, the one who got the family out of the house in the fire.  I believe Thomas was in the USA when he wrote the letter.
