  • Notes 


    • Catherine, known as Kate, was born in January 1858 at Lower Summertown in Carne.  Her parents were Daniel Scallan and Mary Murphy.  She was the oldest child in a family of eight.
       
      Catherine Scallan and Michael Sinnott of Bunarge were married on 23 Nov 1893 at the Roman Catholic Chapel at Tacumshane, Broadway in County Wexford.
       
      Kate was at Bunarge for the 1901 census, together with Michael and their children Mary and Robert, and Allice Murphy (age 11) described as a female cousin of Michael and a general servant domestic.
       
      In the 1911 census, Kate, Michael, Mary and Robert (named “Robbin”) were at Bunarge, as were Robert Sinnott (Michael’s brother, age 60 and single), Alice Murphy (described as Michael’s niece , age 21, single,) and Michael Murphy (farm servant, age 49, single).
       
      Pat Mann told Rex Sinnott in 1966 that she and her sister Kathleen were going to Ireland,to stay with their cousins the McGees of Kilmore, 10 miles from Carne.  Pat said that Mike McGee’s grandmother and her grandmother (Kate Scallan) were sisters. Mike’s mother was brought up at Bunarge with her (Pat’s) father Robert and her Aunt Mary, as their family left their farm at Shilmore, Carne to go to Argentina to farm there.  The McGees were the only living relations on Pat’s grandmother’s side left in Ireland.
       
      Mike McGee’s mother was Alice Murphy, who had married Patrick McGee in 1919.  Alice’s father was Patrick Murphy, but her mother has not been traced.  She could have been Alice, Johanna or Mary Anne Scallan.  Only Mary Anne is known to have remained in Ireland, she is in the 1901 and 1911 censuses as single and living at Summerstown with her unmarried brothers.
