Can anyone offer some documentation to clarify this fellow's details?
My great-great grandfather, a "Jermiah" Carew, is listed, along with Bridget Keating, on the birth records of many of his known descendants (including my great grandfather Jeremiah Carew b 1871). At some point, I was told his parents were John Carew and Bridgid (sp?) Kelly.
Then last August I found an interesting document from 1868. In this advertisement from the Boston Pilot, Jeremiah Carew, son of "John Carew" and "Bridgid Kelly" of Knockgraffon, was looking for his brother Edmond Carew. Jeremiah ostensibly was in Michigan at the time. Problem is that in 1868, "our" Jeremiah (i.e. my gg-grandfather) was having kids in Knockgraffon.
I am left to conclude that there were two Jeremiah Carews in Knockgraffon at the time. Anyone else have a clue?
