  • Notes 
    • Siblings: Edward, Daniel Joseph, Julia May, Elizabeth, Thomas and Michael.
      Nine Children: Bridie, Patrick Finton, Thomas, Edward, John Christopher, Daniel
      and Mary.

      John was shown as living at home, in Dysartbeagh, on the night of 31st March 1901 in the Census. He is erroneously shown as 19 years of age. The census shows him as an unmarried 'farmer's son' who can Read & Write, speaking English as opposed to Irish.

      He was present at the death of his brother Daniel in 1930.

      John died, aged 61, in a tragic road accident when he was knocked down by a lorry (driven by Samuel Pratt).
