Marriage Details

In the era when John Daly died those described as 'farmers' were often tenants of a landlord
and if the "man of the house" died then the widow and children could be evicted.
To avoid this it is likely that Kate (Catherine) married quickly after John Daly's death.

"We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story". So, we do.

In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us." How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.

It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought, and some died, to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.

It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are.

So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore the memory or greet those who we had never known before."

On Saturday 20 April 2013 some descendants of Catherine (Kate) Burke gather in the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery to trace our family history and remember those gone before us.

On Sunday 15 April 2012, Bob McCarthy of USA, a grandson of Katherine Elizabeth visited Drinagh.  His wife Marcia was with him to meet a gathering of relatives - descendants of Kate Burke above.

It was a most enjoyable afternoon and I was delighted to meet some cousins for the first time.  I hope a similar occasion will be not too far off !

Growing up I met many "OLD" (as I saw them) Daly and Donovan people and I had little interest in them.  It was usually at funerals, and the chats went on and on.....

When compiling a family tree I found it of great benefit to have met these "OLD" people because I can now put faces to many of the names and that means alot.  I just wish I had paid more attention.

May they Rest in Peace
