Part 729s – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1878 Birth and Baptism – Great-Granduncle Dennis Sheridan – Wilmington, Delaware

09 July 2012

Good Day,

Next on the venue of my Sheridan Family Line and Genealogy search and research is the 1878 Baptism Registration of great-granduncle Dionysius.
From the Baptism Registers of St. Peter’s Church in Wilmington, Delaware, great-granduncle Dennis Sheridan was baptized 20 January 1878 by Father John A. Lyons. I chanced upon a portrait of the Reverend Monseigneur John A. Lyons as presented at the Cathedral of St. Peter’s site. Great-Granduncle Dennis’ birthdate is recorded as 16 January 1878.

Here is the actual page image as downloaded from Item 5 of the microfilm FHL [1787748].

My transcription of the Latin –

And two extremely key facts have been presented in this Baptism Registration of which has not been found in writing, up to this point. GG-Grandfather Thomas and GG-Grandmother Ellen (née Haley/Healy) Sheridan’s place of origin in Ireland are the Counties of Mayo and Galway, respectively. And now on to Ireland and the search continues.
