Next on the venue of my Sheridan Family Line and Genealogy search and research is the 1878 Baptism Registration of great-granduncle Dionysius.
Cathedral of St. Peter’s site. Great-Granduncle Dennis’ birthdate is recorded as 16 January 1878.
My transcription of the Latin –

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.
