Thank you guys for all the help, sadly yes I think we will have to pass Jeremiah by, sad but there are going to be some we must pass. Onwards and upwards type of thing.

 Kind regards.

 Tom.,

Just to say that I  came across a Jeremiah Neill in an attestation form possibly for a brother- Denis Neill (Schoolteacher of Ballyvoe?, Bandon, Co.Cork.) S13729 ASC  aged 18 in 1898.

Mother Catherine Neill, and a few sibs.

 

No other info sadly. Would that  be the right family?

I think that's the family I was looking at on the 1901 census. He was the only likely Irishman I could  see. - http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Curryglass/Felane_Middle/1094159/

 

As far as I can tell, he was in St Joseph's Industrial School, Cork, on the 1911 census.

That can't be the same Denis then (b 1880 ish). Could well be Jeremiah though.

Sorry Craig, Cork for O'Keeffe, I was off doing stuff.

 Dyfed and IPT, great finds, I will do a bit of digging with the info you found, but unless we get his records we are screwed really.

 It might be in the morning though.

Kind regards and thanks for all the digging, it is very much appreciated.

Tom.

More likely on Ancestry

 

Royal Munster Fusiliers #4256?

Discharged Tubercle of Lung

'Due to service since mobilization' is final comment

Great research everyone, under difficult circumstances. There are a few ways to spell O'Keeffe, O'Keefe, O'Keffe and just Keeffe. Try as I might I cannot link the information you sent to the death cert, I would be extremely happy if I could. If you can please let us know and thank you for all the searches.

 

Y'know Dyfed, that could very well be Jeremiah in the Census but we really need his records. Thank you for such deep digging. Perhaps it is time to move on?

 

Thanks again for all your help guys and gals.

Kindest regards.

Tom.

Kind regards.

Reviewing the image again, perhaps we are a bit hasty, if his Next of kin could be found it would really help to nail it George. Is that possible please? Because he is not O'Neill, and the relatives are not on the sheet.

 Kind regards.

 Tom.

Thank you Craig, it is enough for me to include him in my files but it will not fly in IFCP, unless the critical sheet can be found. Thanks again for all your help.

 Kind regards.

Nothing on Ancestry Tom.

 

Is he, by off chance remembered at his father's school? He may have been an old boy.

 

Wife became a nurse and died 1993
