about 1866), Margaret(1875), Rose Ann (1870), Bridget(1874)and twin Elizabeth (1894), Mary (1872).  Patrick, Rose Ann, Bridget and Margaret emmigrated to US – Lowell, Massachusetts.  Margaret married John Sheehan.  Trying to also find the connection with cousins Patrick Riley, Annie Riley, who also emmigrated to Lowell, Massachusetts in USA..  Any info on where to write to get marriage info for Michael Rudden and Bridget Winters whould be appreciated or if anyone knows of this family…

  1. My Grandfather John Rudden was from Cavan. He emigrated to US/ NYC in the 1880’s I believe. He married Kate Duffy from Mayo and gave bith to M Joseph, Helen ( Ellen) and John. He worked as a NYC cop and he and his family settled in Brooklyn NY in the Bay Ridge section.

  2. Updated report on my Rudden family. I located the marriage of Michael Rudden and Bridget Winters. They were married 26 Feb 1865 Newtown Butler, Fermanagh, Ireland. Michael died in Coolcanadas 1913. This is in the Cootehill registration district. Wondering if anyone knows where the cemetery would be located for Roman Catholic people who died at that time?

  3. Mary,

    Thanks for the post.

    The parish church in Belturbet holds a book of transcribed church records.

    That may be a good place to start.

    Kind regards
