Lord have Mercy on the Soul of
MARY CLOWRY of Kilbricken

Also MARY the beloved wife of
JAMES CLOWRY Kilkea
who died 5 January 1897 aged 32 years

JEREMIAH CLOWRY died August 7th 1895 aged 67 years
JAMES CLOWRY Kilkea died February 20, 1902 aged 67 years

Note by Veronica Shorten: The first Mary above was the wife of Patrick who is buried in Kellistown.  Mary Casey – she was the mother of my great grandmother,  Anne Clowry who married Patrick Maher of Ballyellin. The second Mary, Mary Clowry wife of James was 32 when she died.  She was formerly a Prandy from Glenaharry and when she died they had no family.  He later married Agnes Foley from Augha near Nurney.   They had two daughters and when he died she married my grandmother’s brother , Patrick Maher of Ballyellin. Then when he died in 1902 Agnes married his nephew Patrick Maher and they had 6 children,  one of whom was Reggie Maher who lived in Kilbricken and gave me a lot of help with the Mahers and Clowrys,  years ago. Reggie told me that the two uncles William and Jeremiah lived on in Kilbricken and never married. My grandmother got the farm land in Kellistown as a Dowry when she married in 1895  and it was in the name of Jeremiah Clowry before it came to our family.

He was, for over 18 years, the Pastor of Caragh and Downings, and was loved and respected by the parishioner, who erected this monument to his memory. May he rest in peace. Amen.”

Matthew Clowry

 

Matthew Clowry - Graveyard

 

Birth:     Oct. 11, 1881
Death:     Mar. 31, 1934
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Policeman Matthew Clowry
Philadelphia Police Department
Pennsylvania
End of Watch: Saturday, March 31, 1934

Biographical Info
Age: 52
Tour of Duty: 22 years
Badge Number: 710
Unit of assignment: Belgade and Clearfield station

Incident Details
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Date of Incident: Monday, November 21, 1932
Weapon Used: Gun; Unknown type
Suspect Info: David Almeida (acquitted; later murdered another police officer)

Policeman Clowry died of a wound he received on November 21st, 1932, when he was shot in the head by bandits he caught robbing a building and loan at Richmond Street and Indiana Avenue.

Patrolman Matthew Clowry was detailed to guard a meeting of the Commonwealth Building and Loan Association on the evening of November 21, 1932.

Shortly before nine o’clock, three masked and armed men burst through the doorway and shouted “Hands up!” Looking straight at the barrels of two revolvers and a sawed off shot gun, only ten feet away, Patrolman Clowry disregarded the call and reached for his own revolver. At the same instant two of the bandits shot point blank at his head and both a revolver bullet and the charge from the gun struck the front of his cap and inflicted a bad scalp wound above his right eye.

Stunned by the shot, the patrolman fell, and although semi-conscious while another bandit stood over him, he tried to pull his gun on the gang as they ran from the building with the stolen cash. He succeeded in shooting once at the five bandits as they left in an automobile and then went to a Police Signal Box to report the hold-up, at which point he collapsed from wounds and loss of blood. The suspects were later captured because of a description given by Policeman Clowry.

David Almeida and four others were caught in the holdup. The others pleaded guilty and went to jail, but Almeida, accused of driving the gang’s car stood trial and was acquitted. The court thought so little of the verdict that it placed Almeida under $5,000 bail to keep the peace. Almeida went on to commit other bank and commercial robberies and was imprisoned for life after the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Cecil Ingling in 1947.

Policeman Clowry had served with the Philadelphia Police Department for 22 years. He was survived by his wife and four children.

Clowrys in Irish Directories

There are Clowrys listed in Slater’s Royal National Directory of Ireland editions that were published in 1881 and 1894. The principal value of Slater’s Royal National Directory of Ireland lies in the fact that only a handful of truly national Irish directories are available and this edition is the most comprehensive available. This edition of Slater’s was the first time that farmers were listed in any national directory, thus making it especially valuable as a research tool. There are a number of Clowrys listed in these directories, which I have added below.

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.

Clowry Griffith’s Valuation

Richard John Griffith conducted a tenement survey which valued individual property separately for the first time in Ireland. The survey valued all buildings in the townland for the first time, whereas, before only the larger houses, principally those of the gentry had been valued in the first valuation. The tenement valuations of County Dublin were the first to be published on 5 May 1853 and the last were the valuations of County Armagh on 1 June 1865.

The valuation is a vital document in genealogical research, since in the absence of census records in Ireland before 1901 the valuation records in many ways can act as a substitute.

In terms of Clowry’s in the Griffith’s Valuation, the majority are based in Carlow, one in Castledermot and two Clowry’s is based in Wexford. The Carlow Valuations were completed by 28 June 1853 and the Wexford Valuations were completed by 7 July 1854.
