I'm getting confused.  I believe that 414894 was born in Dublin 1879.  6547was born in Callan in 1883 and died in 1920. Both appear to have records on Fold 3

Feck, I was hoping there might be something located somewhere else in pension or record docs. He has all the hallmarks of being a qualifier but it is not possible without that sheet, or e mention in the pension docs.
