More on Edward Anderson and the Andersons

Edward Anderson was the son of Patrick Anderson and Bridget Mc Hugh of Labasheeda, Co. Clare, Ireland.

Patrick Anderson and Bridget McHugh

Note: Their names are from the marriage license of Edward Anderson and from Bridget Anderson's immigration.

Birth of Patrick Anderson: Circa 1848 (1901 Irish Census)

Patrick Anderson was from King's Co. - now known as Co. Offaly. (Annemarie Smith Greene, December 2007)

Birth of Bridget Mc Hugh: Circa 1858 (1901 Irish Census)

Marriage:

Residence: Labasheeda, Co. Clare Ireland.

Labasheeda (Leaba Shoda) is a village in the parish of Killofin, barony of Clonderalaw, Co. Clare, Munster. LDS does not list records.

Occupation: Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC). Joined in 1869 at age 22 (Annemarie Smith Greene, December 2007)

"I received Patrick Anderson's full RIC record. He and Bridget McHugh were married May 5, 1877 - it doesn't state where, but I'm assuming Mayo. He was assigned to the RIC in Mayo April 17, 1870 and then transferred to Clare on Oct 1, 1877. He retired on Feb 1, 1901. The record also suggests that his father might have been an RIC member as well. The RIC had a height requirement of 5'9, and only sons of RIC members were admitted if they fell below this requirement. (Patrick was 5'7 3/4 inches)"

Annemarie Green, January 2008

Children:

  1. Mary Kate Anderson, 02 APR 1878 Newmarket, Clare, Ireland to Patrick Anderson and Bridget Mc Hugh Anderson LDS batch # C005787 (Annemarie Smith Greene, December 2007)
    Circa 1880 (1901 Irish Census)
    Immigrated to US, see below.
  2. Jane Elizabeth Anderson, 06 August 1879 Mayo, Ireland to Patrick Anderson and Bridget Mc Hugh Anderson LDS batch # C006249 (Annemarie Smith Greene, December 2007)

  3. Rebecca circa 1884 (1901 Irish Census)
    Immigrated to US, see below.
  4. Alice circa 1885 (1901 Irish Census)

  9. The Co. Clare Heritage Center confirmed that 7 of the 8 Anderson children were born in Co. Clare between 1878 - 1894. (Annemarie Smith Greene, December 2007)

    In October 2013 Brid Talty, who is digitizing the records for Miltown Malbay Co Clare, shared the following information on the Anderson family.

    Alice Anderson 5 Jan 1884
    John Joe 27 Dec 1885
    Bridget 17 March 1888
    Ann 16 August 1890
    Edward Pat 15 Feb 1894

    It would appear that Patrick Anderson was stationed in Miltown Malbay as an RIC Officer during the period while the last five of his children were born.

  8. John

    Additional Information from Annemarie Green: I also recently made contact with a girl in Co. Clare, Ireland who is indirectly related to the Culligan side of my family. She mentioned that John Anderson (the only one I know for sure stayed in Ireland) was married and had at least 1 son. She said that John Anderson was her grandmother's teacher in either Labasheeda or Lakyle, and that her grandfather was friendly with him as well. He later moved away from Labasheeda and the families lost touch.

    In April 2010 Kevin Kennedy the grandson of Bridget Anderson wrote:

    "My mom remembers that her mom Bridget had seven siblings some of whom moved to England. The oldest brother was John who was a school teacher and remained in Labasheeda, Ireland and never married.

    Additional Information from Anne Greene, June 2010: John Anderson - I also confirmed that John never married, and lived with his mother in Labasheeda. My mother found a prayer card from his funeral with a date of November 10, 1940.

Death of Patrick Anderson: Patrick Anderson - Died August 14, 1914. Buried in Killofin Cemetery, Labasheeda, Co. Clare.

Death of Bridget McHugh Anderson: Bridget McHugh Anderson - Died December 2, 1938 in Labasheeda. Buried with husband.

Addidtional Comments From Annemarie Smith Greene

My mother did not know of Jane, Alice or Annie Anderson. John was a teacher in Ireland, and came once for a visit before WWII. She remembers meeting him and Aunt Bea making a big fuss about his visit.

Aunt Rebecca was not married while living in the US, but rumored to have left a husband in Ireland.....

Aunt Bea was Veroncia McGuire Kennedy's mother. Veronica is currently over 80 years old and lives in Rockaway, NY. I don't know about any of Veronica's siblings.

Can You Help?

Because of certain laws, I can only access New York City records up to 1910 for birth and the early 1930s for marriages and deaths. Consequently, I can only track the children of Joseph Walsh and Maggie Langan so far. Complicating this problem is the fact that Walsh was a very common name in the city.
