Jeremiah BURNS and Judith MURPHY
County Wicklow, Ireland to Goulbourn Township

New September 5, 2004:

Mr Lewis
    my name is Gary Burns, my dad's name was Garfield(1914), 
    His dad's name was Lawrence, conc.9, l21 w1/2 goulbourn township.
Then Jeremiah burns . 
I know I need to spend a lot of time at the library re birth and death adds but,
do you have any short cuts? My dad's mum was a Tierney (Mary J died 1956). The 
Tierney's are pretty easy to trace but the Burns' are an other story.
Thanks for your e-mail.
Just to let you know that I'm still trying to sort out all the Burns, too.
The first Jeremiah Burns I can find (from the Richmond area) was a godparent 
for one of the children of Francis Lacharity, 
at Notre Dame church.
This Jeremiah may have been married to a Murphy. I'll try and see what I can 
find on him from St. Phillip's Church in Richmond. Jeremiah may have had a son named 
Andrew (the gap?) who had a son named Lawrence. Ellen Paul has transcribed the records
at St. Phillips.
