Transcriber’s Note: Entries on the Ellis Island database before 1907 did not include details of name and address of nearest relative. If the placename of last residence was common to several parts of Ireland e.g. Mullagh – Clare / Cavan / Meath this passenger is not included in the transcription. Mis-spellings of placenames may also result in a passenger’s name not being picked up. If a name you expect to find is not on the transcription go directly to the Ellis Island website.Many passengers gave their “Last Residence” as Miltown Malbay because it was the largest town in the area, therefore being found in the Index with that address. These passengers will be found transcribed in the parish of Kilfarboy, where you should also be able to find their actual townland which may be in the parish of Kilmurry Ibrickan. Clare Genealogy: Emigration Records: Emigrants from Kilmurry

SAD HOMECOMING

Irish American Soldiers Who Died IN France

Sixty Four Bodies From The Battlefields.

The bodies of sixth-four American soldiers, men of Irish birth, arrived in Dublin at noon yesterday on board the ss. Millwater, having been exhumed from graves on French battlefields for re-interment in Irish soil.
Claimed by relatives for burial in Ireland, the United States Government arranged for the removal of the bodies from France.
It is understood that the work of unloading the caskets will be commenced this morning, and the bodies will be removed to a City mortuary for storage pending their transfer by rail to their various destinations. Captain W. R. Buckley, U.S. Army, told a ‘Freeman’s Journal” representative that no ceremoney will mark the landing of the bodies.
Accompanied by four convoyers, Captain Buckley has arrived in Dublin in connection with the shipment, and will remain in Ireland till all the bodies are delivered. The names of the convoyers are: Messers. Johnston, Stewart, Williams and Royed.

SALUTING THE DEAD

The Ss. Millwater, which is a a small British coasting vessel, owned in Ipswich, recieved the caskets at Antwerp. Mr. Richard R., Willey, U.S. Vice-COnsul at Dublin, was among those present when the vessel berthed at City Quay.
During the day the vessel was the centre of much interest, and those passing up and down the Liffey-side reverently saluted the remains, which are ranged in the holds of the vessel.
A number of relatives of the deceased have arrived in Dublin for the purpose of accompanying the remains on their last homeward journey.
Every province and practically all the counties are prepresented among the dead, which include Rev. Patrick J. Gallagher, Knights of Columbus Chaplain, whose body is consigned to Mr. James Galagher, Castlebar, Mayo.

Hello Sharon – sad to see such young men die. R.I.P. Re U.S. soldier D’Arcy – there are a few families of D’Arcy in the Mullagh area – and Patrick living at Mountscott, Mullagh, Ennis. A relation – Capt. Paul D’Arcy of Kilrush (Irish Army), R.I .P. , brought out a book of poems some years ago and refers to his childhood visits to Mullagh. My sister has a copy and I spend time reading it when I can.
I am sure there are still Hassett’s at Kilfearagh, Kilkee, and McMahon’s at Moyasta, Kilrush.
Miriam.

Miriam, do you know anything about the D’Arcy individuals who are still near Mullagh? I am still trying to find out where my great grandfather came from in Ireland. He was b. in 1828, s/o Patrick D’Arcy and Ellen McGuane.

Hello Joseph – It was very sad to see such young men die in 1922. My reply to the last posting was got by looking at the telephone book. Now to get you started on finding several families of D’Arcy & McGuane – log on to http://www.clarelibrary.ie – open Genealogy = several docs. – but Tithes & Applotments of 1824 and also Griffith Vals. of 1855 will show you many families of the name. I think the area to concentrate on is the parish of Kilmurray/Ibricin – Mullagh (St. Mary’s) is the main Church with one at village of Quilty and one in a rural area called Coore. Again log on to http://www.clarelibrary.ie – genealogy – and go to Research Support at bottom right of page – Parish Index – select Kilmurray/Ibricin (there are two other parishes called Kilmurray ) – great reading. I looked at photos and there are some of D’Arcy children attending Mullagh school in 1964!!
In recent months graveyard inscriptions for all the graveyards in South West Clare have been put on http://www.clarelibrary.ie – again on Genealogy – donated material. I must say a very BIG Thank You to Senan Scanlan, Kilrush for doing so.
I had a quick look and found: Kylebreedia Graveyard – Patrick Luke D’Arcy died 1835 aged 36. and at Killernan Graveyard – John McGuane died 1898 aged 67 – so he might be a brother to your gg father.
A project was done some years ago by students – all Baptismal Records up to 1900 were put in ‘Family’ order – so the Parish Priest at St. Mary’s Church, Mullagh would hold it.
I will send you a mess. about the D’Arcy family I know.
Hello Sharon – sad to see such young men die. R.I.P. Re U.S. soldier D’Arcy – there are a few families of D’Arcy in the Mullagh area – and Patrick living at Mountscott, Mullagh, Ennis. A relation – Capt. Paul D’Arcy of Kilrush (Irish Army), R.I .P. , brought out a book of poems some years ago and refers to his childhood visits to Mullagh.
My uncle mentioned that there was an officer in the family. This must be the one he was talking about. My grandfather on the maternal side was also an officer in India and Burma for 25 years. He was with the British army.

Blimey – I think Patrick D’Arcy mentioned above is an uncle of mine. He lives on the farm at Mountscott, Co. Clare, the homestead of my ancestors.
