Jools mckenna

Possibly captured June 1916. 

 

Home address - 12 Upper Dorset street, Dublin, Ireland

 

Was held in Giessen.

 

Any other info would be greatly appreciated. Also I can't find Rowan in the ICRC.

Jools, I think the two photos you have posted above could well be the same man. Were you thinking they were different?

Yes and no, I think they are one and the same but the addresses are different.

I think Tom has found your man. And this is probably him in 1911 census at Eccles St, Dublin (He is in 1901 census at Dublin as well at different address, but same family)

The chaps are the evidence suggests the same man 

His brother Ernest Columbus Rowan was KIA 4/10/17 whilst serving with the Warwicks

Parents ME and Margaret. The SDGW shows born Dublin enlisted Kensington. 1901 census shows father was Michael Ernest

1920 electoral register shows Michael Ernest, Margaret and Christopher were all registered to vote at 196,New Kent Road. 

The father, Josephine and Leo all appear to have died in London in later years. 

edit - his brother's will in the Irish Archives
